Major NSV And A Blue Dot Day, Too!
Sunday, August 20, 2017
I was just finishing dinner this evening when I got a text from my sister-in-law (one of life's great gifts to me) who, along with my brother (another of my great gifts) was traveling home from the state fair and would be stopping for ice cream about 15 minutes from my house. "How about if you meet us there?" I immediately texted back, "Well, sure." And now the talk started in my head.
I had just eaten my dinner. I was satisfied, really, I was! I had tracked my food and was done eating for the day. Right away, I started justifying a small dish of ice cream. I could use some of my extra weekly points for it. I could. It would put me over the goal I had set for myself today, but I could. However, I was satisfied. I didn't need it. Did I want it? Well, of course it would be tasty. But what I really wanted was a visit with my brother and his wife. Decision made! I would be driving to Monroe to see them, have a hug and a chat, not to eat ice cream.
And guess what! I did not miss the ice cream one little bit! I got my hug and my chat. We caught up and I drove back home happy as a clam and feeling great!
My brother was totally bewildered by the fact that I didn't want any ice cream. After all they had just come from the haven of fat, sugar, and grease treats and were stopping for ice cream afterward!!! "I just came to see you," I said. He didn't argue.
I had a bit breakthrough and a blue dot day along with it! I hope yours was good, too.
