Glad you didn't do it.

I would check what you have in your kitchen and only have good things at arms length.
Grab carrots or nuts.

Keep up the mind of matter...

I was very tired and grumpy and almost ate an entire bag of potato chips. Then I talked to myself about how I get so close to my goal and sabotage myself. I talked myself out of it,

yea 4 u........i have been down that road many times in my past. Now I just do things differently. I go for a walk instead or I chat at God about it. Driving away from that ice cream was the best choice you could of made at that moment. Your body thanks you..............!

But, you didn't!
Good for you. I'm rarely tempted in those ways, so it's hard for me to identify. My temptations are when it's right in front of me. But thinking back to other bad habits, like tobacco, I found that when I "turned to it", and made effort to seek it out, I absolutely could not say no once I'd made the decision.

That's strong right there to do what you did there. Strong. When I kicked the tobacco, it was the realization that I was stronger than it was. Made me proud. You should be as well.

My nephew, his girlfriend and their baby are at my house for the next month, so its pretty busy and loud in a quiet house. My mothier in law (who lives with us) decided to do everyone's laundry (because she's a busy body). I have made it clear that I don't want anyone doing my laundry. It makes me angry just thinking about it. Before I left for work, while everyone was asleep, I started a load. Told hubby to put them in the dryer and when it was done, put it in our bedroom. When I got home, my laundry was all over the place! Upstairs, downstairs, turned inside out, hanging in the laundry room, mixed in with the guests, mixed in with hers. It was a scavenger hunt finding my undies! I was LIVID. I got in my car, drove to Baskin and Robbins for a 3 Scooop Sundae for dinner!!! Then I thought about my waistline, and drove right out of the parking lot. Whew...anyone else having moments?
