temptation

so i'm making dinner the other night. tuesday i think it was, not that that's important. and i'm looking in my fridge for the fakey soy veggie shred cheese i have come to love and that i know is in there. and i swear its in there somewhere.

so i'm digging. pushing things aside. looking way back. and then i see it. way back in the far corner. oh.my.god. holy shit. close the door. open it back up again. jesus. there it was.

frosting.

there was a can of frosting back there. and i swear, it was smiling at me. if there was ever a time to call a sponsor. this was it. i call my husband downstairs. i text my coach. who responds with step away from the fridge. my husband threw it out. i didn't want to touch it. good thing too - cause as coach said, it might have accidentally opened.

and all of this a mere hour after texting my friend that i'm really not feeling the cravings so much anymore. perhaps i spoke too soon.

Hey, at least you called for reinforcement. I would have checked to make sure no one was looking, stuff it under my shirt, and hidden somewhere while I indulged in the forbidden fruit. Granted, I would be in pain the next day (I think our GI systems are kindred spirits) but it so would be worth it. Kudos to you; keep up the good work!

Good for you for showing restraint (or at least having your husband FORCE you to show it!) I was eying the Milky Way bar in the jack-o-lantern bowl at my client's house today. I was THIS CLOSE to snatching it, but decided I should leave it for their 3-year-old.

I think I need a sponsor. I've been eating garbage for a couple of weeks now.

Must.

Stop.

The mind is more powerful than the stomach! I have to tell you this frosting story of mine. (See I told you I used to do this stuff!) I had to make a birthday cake and as I was putting the frosting on, funny thing that the frosting never made it on the cake. I sat and ate almost the WHOLE can, leaving just enough for a glaze on the cake, which I used water to thin out. My eyesight is bad enough I figured no one would really notice. That's not the way it went unfortunately. And that story is still being told today.
