I put the Peppy Party's April challenge to the test last night. Remember we were going to ask ourselves "if" questions and respond with "then" plans. I used it spontaneously and it worked. I was serving a guest a cinnamon bun that smelt and looked irresistible to me. I walked away and sat down in another room and asked myself "if" I eat that cinnamon bun how will I feel afterwards. My "then" answer was regretful. I then made a healthy choice to eat alongside them. It works because I actually had to pause and think, instead of grab and eat impulsively. I felt much more in control.
On another interesting note I discovered dried mulberries in an Iranian store that specializes in selling nuts and dried fruits. I didn't know they were good for you until I googled them. See what Dr. Oz says about them www.doctoroz.com/videos/
I bought them at a place called Ayoub's in Vancouver, B.C. but you can also order them online. The great thing about them is that they are very healthy yet intensely sweet so they satisfy my sweet cravings with just a small amount. I have been looking for something like that for a long time. Anyhow, they are pricey but worth it!
