Chocolate Temptations Resisted
So last night I almost gave in. Going grocery shopping with the hubs is dangerous. He loves to sneak lots of goodies into our cart. Sometimes I can talk him out of it, but sometimes I turn off the nag and let him do his thing.
Our shopping trip last night he only threw in three evils: Little Debbie Brownies, Chocolate Poptarts, and a 2 liter of soda.
I had made up my mind I wasn’t going to touch his treats, but I was very, very tempted and weak last night. As we were kicking back with the kids in bed, he threw a couple of chocolate Poptarts into the toaster and man the scent that wafted! It smelled like he was baking brownies. My salivary glands started going and I was feeling like I was missing out on something good.
I told my husband that I was about to give in and eat some of his chocolate goodness. He told me to stick to my word and not eat any of it!
I stayed clear of his goodies and had some sugar-free ice cream. Hardly compares, but I am continuing to refrain from any sweet baked goodies and candy. Low and behold it is the 15th and I have made it half way through the month!!
How are you doing with your new 2012 health and fitness goals? What is helping you keep to your guns?
