The Crafty Ways of the Mind

Thursday, January 12, 2012

I was glad that I had reinforced a healthy attitude toward food, to my co-workers when I received a compliment about how good my salad looked. It was scrumptious! I got it at a loca grocery store that sold salad by the pound. When I used to buy this salad, I only extracted from it the lightest items...however, this time I got exactly what I wanted, even though it was $5.99 a pound. I got alot of good greens, favorite selections, then topped it off with some great chunks of turkey! YUM. And I was so satisfied~did not get hungry in between meals, either.

That was yesterday.

Today was a bit stressful at work, and I found my mind wander to the comfort of food. Funny, though, when I shewed the thought away, another craving came up! So like the "flesh"! The spoiled baby inside of me does not want to give up easy. That baby will jump to another bad habit...of some kind of self indulgence....if food is forbidden! (Not that shopping would be bad, but I identified the indulgent self satisfying craving to consume something for the appetite!)

That is my purpose of the blog. To tell myself the TRUTH, and to make choices that I truly want for myself~not those I will regret later~those kind that make me feel bad about me~and the choices I made.

On the contrary, I feel pretty good about the good choices, even though it has only been 3 days. I am fully aware of becoming over confident. Just today, I thought it would not hurt to have a "small" frosty from Wendy's, since I have been doing so good.

ARG~the mind is crafty!! But the truth is, cutting out those little things that "do not really matter" will not permit a drop in weight.

I like this blogging thing. Today, I thought what I would write to myself (and anyone else who reads) when I was tempted. That kept me on track...accountable to me....and attentive to my goal and focus. Have a good nite's rest.

    I agree sometimes it's harder to be honest with ourselves about ourselves than it is with others. I'm inspired. emoticon
