I was at the supermarket tonight. I've been fighting off some extremely intense cravings as of late. Something inside me recently decided it wants more food. It's becoming increasingly difficult to say "no." I kept having visions of picking up a Cadbury Egg or some other indulgence. I picked up some gum at the register; I was compelled to buy an impulse item and I think I picked the most reasonable. I did get some Teddy Grahams but they're not too terrible for you as far as chocolate cookies go.
I'm so glad I recognized I was having a weak moment so I could deal with it accordingly. In the past, I would have loaded my cart with the most unhealthy garbage imaginable. While fighting off the urge to buy chips, soda, and candy, I asked myself "Is this worth no loss this week? Is this worth not reaching your goal?" Invariably, the answer would be no. It was still damn near impossible to move on.
So here I am. Hungry, but proud of my ability to resist the temptations of the grocery store.
When are you most tempted to eat things you shouldn't?
