Anyone ever try to eat the kitchen sink?? :)

Saturday, March 01, 2014

I know it is just an expression, but I really hate those days when that is exactly what I feel like the kitchen sink! Today is one of those days. I just can't seem to get satisfied. It does not help that we are going out to eat tonight to a place I know nothing about. I always try to plan ahead so I make wise choices, but that is not an option tonight. :(

I was so proud of myself yesterday for a bit. I went to the store and a display right when you walk in the store was a display of Paczki. I have never had one before and I was so tempted to buy some. I finally talked myself out of it and left the store feeling proud of myself for having resisted. But when I got home, again, I could not stop eating. Sometimes I think I might have been better off just getting the one thing I really thought I wanted. But then I think, would one have been enough??

    I have found myself in the same boat. I get a craving for something and I deny myself. I keep looking for something to take it's place and I end up eating everything but the kitchen sink! I have learned to get just one of something and allow myself to eat it and enjoy it. (I don't do this every day!) But then I put it in my tracker, make allowances for it, and move on.

    If you're like me, you lie awake when you first get into bed, mentally going over your day and how well you did, or the things you regret not having had a little more willpower just so you could get past that moment of temptation. If you do that too, you can at least congratulate yourself on the willpower you showed by not giving in to that temptation, then walking out of the store. You have every right to feel proud of yourself.

    Would one have been enough? Well, if you were me, one would be all you intended to have, but buy a few extra for other days and times when you just needed 'something'. All my extras were usually eaten well before I arrived home, and the only thing left was a huge feeling of disappointment at not having said no to the first.

    We all have those days where nothing we eat to substitute for those things we are craving will satisfy us, You stayed accountable, and you were strong enough to resist that temptation. Tomorrow is another day, Leave today in the past when you wake in the morning, other than remembering your strength in not buying just one Paczki. (By the way, I can't even begin to imagine what it/they are... nothing of that name here where I live in Australia). emoticon
