A good reminder, Platinum. I notice the bakery cookies every time I pass them. In all honesty, there is probably a longing expression on my face, as I pause just briefly.. It's a wonderful win when I then walk on by. Phew!

The power is in YOU! emoticon emoticon

You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.

Mistakes are the portals of discovery.

Don't be afraid to give your best at what seemingly are small jobs. Every time you conquer one it makes you that much stronger. If you do the little jobs well, the big ones will tend to take care of themselves.

It is never too late to be what you might have been.

sounds so familiar. I took the step of not buying any. That helps even though I still get the craving. Now I can't eat them because they are not in the house. I reach for a glass of water instead.
All the best as you will beat this trigger.



At the end of the day, be able to look back and say "I did my best today."

It looks like you have identified a trigger point and have a plan to make changes. I love the decision not to even buy any. you might want to look at why you eat them when you get home from work. Is is because you are hungry if yes then try real food VS. sweets. If it is boredom then maybe using that time to do something else such as spot strength training or making a meal plan for the next day or week might be an idea. emoticon

Believe in your self you can do it. Instead of thinking i have to eat no cookies in the next seven days. Why not say today i will try not to eat any cookies and take it one day at a time.

And I've realised I don't even notice that I'm eating them. Suddenly they are all just gone!!
So my sugar trigger this week is: cookies - mindlessly eating cookies when I get home.

Step one - don't buy any!
Step two - come up with another thing to do when I get home from work

This needs to be a cookie free 7 days for me because the last 7 days would put the cookie monster to shame!
