Great idea symmetry with the green tea and March (spring and St Patricks). You can definitely do this if you want - if I did it in January, you for sure can do it in any month you want!!!

I now drink real coffee on weekend when I can get it at my favorite small coffee shop. Otherwise, I am just substituting quantity for quality!

Good luck. Let us know how you're makIng out.

When I ordered my groceries this month, I did not order my usual jar of Nutella, which I eat, when I have it, by the spoonful. I miss it but I will not get it this month.

That was a good experience to have and one we should remember.

My husband often sings this snippet to my daughters when they are asking for things - it has always worked since they were toddlers!

But if you try sometimes..... you get what you need.

But if you try sometimes - you get what you need!

Who knew that the Stones would be dispensing a little pearl of wisdom in my ear this morning?

What made me think of this? Last night was the first night I was home in a week - went to Florida last Sunday then straight from airport to my Mom's on Thursday and back here yesterday. Off I went to the store and bought small containers of the various prepared things I will take for lunch this week: 1 container of broccoli rabe with garlic; another with butternut squash and kale salad; another with some kind of grain with black beans, red onions, tomatoes; etc. Didn't go down any of the problematic aisles (translation: the vast majority of the store!!)

Last night, I was streaming a movie - no need to mention what it was, it wasn't that good. Boredom hit. Late night tiredness hit. And I was on the prowl - was there any thing to eat? And do you think I was looking for oranges? Grapefruit? Roasted brussels sprouts? NO!!!! I was looking for CRAP.

That's what I wanted...but not what I needed. And not having it here took away the possibility that I would sabotage myself.

Until I am where I want to be with my habits and my overall state of health, I have to be super-vigilant that I don't set landmines for myself. And we all know how happy America is to set those landmines all around us. In the train station, in the gas station, in the grocery store, along the road in the guise of big golden arches, etc.

So this morning, is it any wonder that I woke up and had "You can't always get what you want" circling about in my head.

So...from Mick to me to you: watch out for those landmines! Don't let them sneak up on you!
