Greg will never know . . .
Friday, October 23, 2009
Fall is now here and I want to eat comfort food - especially CHOCOLATE & SUGAR. For the past two years I have pretty much avoided sugar & thought of it as a POISON to my system. The last couple of weeks though - whenever I go shopping, the candy aisle just SCREAMS for my attention.
Here's the really weird thing - when I look at the candy the only thought running through my mind is "Greg will never know". Greg is my husband and is very supportive of my pursuit to be healthy. He would question my decision to eat candy, but ultimately not give me a bad time. So, why on earth would the thought "Greg would never know that I ate the candy" run through my mind?
Right after the thought "Greg would never know" comes the thought "I WILL KNOW - AND I AM RESPONSIBLE FOR ME".
So I guess I'm using this as a learning experience - I am strong enough to not give in to temptations - especially temptations that I consider to be poison. Great tasting poison, but poison none the less.
I am happy to say that I have not given in to the temptation.
I deserve to be healthy! I CAN DO THIS!
This is added several days since I posted the above:
Greg went shopping with me today and as we went past all the YUMMY sweets - I leaned over and said "I can eat these and you'll never know". He laughed along with me as we walked on by . . .
I did get one treat though - a coffee flavoring that is sweetened with SPLENDA - NO CALORIES!!! It's gingerbread and I'm enjoying a cup of decaf with the gingerbread flavoring right now. WOW - am I glad Greg talked me into buying the bottle!
