My biggest temptation is usually donuts. I've been substituting 1 cookie instead. That's about a 200 calorie savings

The gas station closest to my work took out the Icee machine (only drink coke) so that should help some!

i gave up mountain dew for lent and i made it though 5 days without much of an issue. yesterday i was craving one but was able to get my attention on something else. today i was sleepy and crabby. i was going to get something else out of the vending machine but the token thing ihad did not work so i was annoyed and tempted to get a dew instead. i decided to hang on to my frustration that if the token did not work that i didnt want to spend more money on something else. Does that count as willpower?

Potato chips. I really shouldn't have them in the house, but hubby and kids eat them. I had cut up cucumber instead with an oil and vinegar dressing.

I had a light lunch and supper on friday because of saturday's temptation. we will be traveling and stopping at a resturaunt that a makes homemade custard. the flavor of the day is:

The Freezer
Chocolate cake batter custard + marshmallow fluff + fudge + chocolate chip cookie dough + chocolate cake pieces. Put some FREEZER in your freezer for the BIG GAME.

so deccadent, but 1 scoop should be a perfect treat.

bedtime snack - was going to have hot chocolate and 2 spice cookies. i decided it was to late and i was not actually hungry so i should just put it away

slowly.. i am learning that a treat when i am not hungry is not always a treat.

Late snack. i came up with a list of 3-4 things i wanted to eat, then i realized that i was not hungry. so after i showered, i brushed my teeth right away. not a pure willpower victory, but minty breath makes other foods not taste good.

calorie saved - pop (170) + popcorn (90)
lemonade(110) and popcorn (90)
ranch chips 170
icecram 170-250

so i easily saved myself 200 calories that i was not hungry for.

Caffine. i wanted a soda this afternoon. i ended up getting called into a training class ao that distracted me for an hour and then i only had 30 minutes left in the day. i did not wxactly use willpower, i just kept distracting myself until the craving passed.

Hi Imreite! I like soda too--one trick I found that dilutes soda a bit--add water to it. I find it doesn't affect the taste too much; I feel satisfied and drink less soda.

my temptation was to quit before i got started on a new goal. Laste night i had an inspiration for a new goal. during the day i made a plan of 7 tasks i could finish before 5pm. i got home late from work so i lost about 40 minutes, i was tempted to quit. i did 5 of the tasks. i dinished about 5:20.
I did not get it all done but i did not finish.

Pizza. the weather was crummy so i wanted to overeat. at work i caved and got some pizza for lunch. then after work i stopped for milk and the y had $1 pizza slices. i caved again.

however i stuck with my supper plan. i did not have any buns so that prevented about 200 calories and simple carbs that i did not need nor did want.

Not today but yesterday's: frozen greek yogurt after already eating plenty for dinner. My fiance gave me the moral boost I needed to stray from the freezer for the 20 minutes they recommend you wait after eating so your stomach will realize how full you are. And sure enough, I was already full.
