I fought Hungry...

Wednesday, April 18, 2012

and won!

Today is bagel Wed. and our company provides dozens of free bagels and toppings in the kitchen each week. Most of the time I resist because they just make me want more. Eat one, want 2 more. The only thing that works is if I eat lean protein with it.

A couple weeks ago, I had found a cinnamon bagel that didn't have any little dead bugs (aka raisins) that I had fallen in love with and had decided to enjoy with my tea today. When I got to the kitchen, both (yes only 2 of that kind) were gone and Hungry immediately started in... "There's a wheat one, a plain one...."

I picked up a wheat one (tongs involved) and then made myself put it back. I had come for a special one and it was not available. Why eat one to just be eating one? It's a very high calorie snack and the wheat ones aren't all that good. Hungry was not happy that I did not obey but I am. Each time I overcome his pushes, I feel a bit stronger.

He tried to get me to grab one on the way back from a bathroom break, but I resisted again. I have hope of beating him back into submission. One battle at a time.
