Beck Trek - Chapter 5 - Day 7 - Arrange Your Environment
Thursday, September 03, 2015
Although my house is pretty much a diet trap free zone, I have very little trouble with getting distracted by food things that aren't on my eating plan.
Hubby keeps ice cream in the fridge and he brings chips into the house on occasion. He likes to have a doughnut on the weekends. It doesn't bother me...other than I don't like to see him eat those empty calories. He isn't overweight, and he is healthy, so I don't nag him about it.
An open jar of peanuts has been known to trip me up on the weekend, so hubby and I have an agreement that he keeps them out of my site. No leaving the jar sitting on the kitchen counter! It's the RULE!
I used to think I could not get through the weekend without chips and salsa. I've learned that I certainly can.
When the grandkids visit, we make food fun and eat a lot of fruits and veggies.
I'm a pro at resisting the food pushers at work. I've even had co-workers ask if they can put their candy or snacks in my office so they will stop noshing. Not kidding! It doesn't even phase me.
I decided long ago that the choice was up to me. I don't have to eat anything I don't want to eat. I can be as selective as I want to be about what I put into my body. I love the feeling of control that it gives me.
