Vending Machine Calling My Name

Friday, February 03, 2012

I'm here at work very tired and wanting to go to the vending machine. I can just she and imagine the Hershey bar dropping waiting for pick up. However, I'm not going to give in to the sleep temptation. I'm going to finish my cup of hot tea and not give it another thought. If I must have something it will be either a kiwi or zucchini with fat free dressing that I packed in my lunch bag. I'm determined not eat unnecessary junk this year. This is the year for results to happen. Staying strong tonight/ morning.

    I like the idea of a reward jar. I no longer work, but if I get a job, I will use that suggestion.

    I really love that in your Blog you acknowledged that you were tired.

    (I know that when I'm tired everything is "worse". For me, I do try to make a conscious effort to tell myself, "You're just tired.")

    I saw on the Feed that you indeed did NOT go to the vending machine.
    Love it!

    Vending machines can be loud and persistent like that.
    Keep a healthy snack for sure...but make sure it's a yummy one. That way you won't feel deprived.

    You can do it! Put the money you would have to put into the machine in a "I am taking a vacation" fund. Be strong emoticon

    Step away from the vending machine!
    Get yourself a jar...Any time the vending machine is trying to suck you in, pick out the item you most want to purchase and drop the $ into your jar.
    Make it your reward jar!
    Maybe it can go towards a manicure, or some other thing that you want.
    Find a way to turn it into a positive and you will have a continual reminder of the good you are doing for YOU!

    Awesome! It is so hard for me to pass up the vending machine if it is around me too long. Glad you opted for the healthy snack. Right on!
