SparkCoach Challenge: Out of sight, out of mind

Thursday, December 27, 2012

Gift baskets full of crackers, jams, caramel corn....BEGONE! Stashing those treats out of my sight today to meet the challenge. That bag of caramel corn in particular has been luring me with its siren song. Buh-bye! Scram, sausage log! Hasta la vista, white chocolate! Sayonara, crackers! Helloooo, fruits, veggies, fish!

    Celia looks like time for me to start Spark Coach. Good for you. I am always telling my DH who has no problem keeping a bag of chocolat around for months (I would have eaten it in days) that he must hide his stash from me so I don't see it. If I run across it again I make him hide it again. We do what we can!

    I divided up the chocolate peppermint bark into 1 ounce pieces in snack bags. I can have one bag a day, if I track it and stay within my calories.

    emoticon Celia! I gave away a lot, too, especially the few things that were 'calling' my name. :) I did have "a bit" that, maybe, I shouldn't have ~ but it was very little. I was lucky because the one thing that I wanted above all the rest, I was able to have. That was cabbage rolls, which our family always has on Christmas Eve. They were so yummy and, this year, I wasn't even the one who had to make them. ;) Temptation, out of the way, again, for awhile. *sigh of relief* Have a wonderful New Year, my friend. emoticon

    I gave away most of my 'stash,' and even threw out one item I knew I'd have a hard time resisting. It wasn't easy! but I feel so much better knowing it can't tease me.

    Good for you - there are way too many temptations this time of year so getting them out of your sight sounds like a great solution! Stay strong and keep pushing! emoticon

    That was too cute. I am doing the same thing..getting rid of Xmas goodies. I am determined to keep in my range for the Mardi gras challenge.

    Good for you being positive and focused.
