It's not leaving the planet
Monday, June 07, 2010
Sometimes, I want to eat without any limits. Evidently. This is not a new revelation. It's why I started the year with 100 pounds to lose.
I've really been focused on my food choices the last couple of weeks & when faced with a horribly tempting food, I tell myself it's not leaving the planet! My sister makes an awesome potato salad. I had a bite & then told myself that if I really, really wanted more on another day that she could make it for me. It's not leaving the planet. Neither is the bumpy cake--picked up fresh from a local bakery--that I brought to a family function last week. The bakery is 2 miles from my house. If I find that I truly can't possibly live without it, then I can go get another one. It's not leaving the planet.
So my mantra has been working...at least with the food choices. Now if I can find something that will click in my head when it comes to exercise! Well, one hurdle at a time, right?
