Not an easy day- very tempted
Thursday, March 14, 2019
Today I swung by the bakery. My favorite chocolate frosted donut holes rolled in sprinkles were on sale for half off. I REALLY wanted sugar. I really wanted those donut holes. And so I bought them. I promptly placed them in the back of my car- my kids love these donut holes as much as I do- and left them there until I got home from work. I longed for them. I thought about eating "just one". I obsessed about the instant sweet bliss I would instantly get just by biting into one. I imagined it melting in my mouth. I was sorely tempted to make a very poor food choice. And once I do, "Let's call the whole thing off" (regarding my diet) starts playing gleefully in my head.
Then I thought about the big picture. I was not going to let one little bakery treat ruin everything I've worked for for the past week. And so I didn't. Letting everything I want in the long run be completely derailed just for a little instant gratification isn't worth it. It wasn't easy, but now the day is done and I can say I fought the sugar demon and won. At least for today.
