One Good Decision

Friday, December 02, 2011

There are so many temptations this time of year, which makes it easy to overeat and/or binge. I LOVE chocolate! For the past two days I've resisted the candy dish in the office, and I thought I was going to make it through today, as well. But about closing time, I let the stress of the day get to me and stuck my hand in the dish and pulled out a handful of Hershey's Dark Chocolate Kisses and Candy Cane Kisses. That's the bad news. The good news is that I made the decision to eat a sensible amount, then put the rest back in the dish. As long as I make it through the evening without going overboard, no harm will have been done. Now, what I REALLY wanted to do was to eat the ones I put back and take ANOTHER handful. Sometimes we have to just be proud of the little things we did right. Perfection just isn't realistic - especially where CHOCOLATE is concerned! I'm okay with the decisions I made today.

    Also, the good part is, you ate chocolate that is dark, which is much healthier so actually not too much of a problem really, even if you only ate a small amount!

    Those were great decisions! And just think what would have been different is you hadn't even thought about it and just ate and ate and ate. Oh - don't go there!

    You did a great job with eating just some of the candy, I too am a chocolate loving person and have to put the stops on to not overeat chocolate. Thank goodness that dark chocolate is usually my choice. Yes, there are way to many temptations this time of year.

    Good for you! I totally agree! Exercising a little self-control is a good thing and you did it! Did you savor the moment by allowing those little kisses to melt in your mouth slowly? emoticon

    It's one minute at a time, one hour at a time, one day at a time, one step at a time and sometimes one decision at a time. You did good and should be proud! emoticon
