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?


  1. Yay, way to stick to your goals even when temptations are attacking your senses. I didn't really set any Jan goals or resolutions... just not feelin' it. I am glad you are doing this one, I know it's huge for you. Congrats, never give up!

  2. Good for you!! Wahoo!

    I am just getting started up on my targets for 2012. This week hope to count cals all week and get in plenty of exercise. Have a great week!

  3. Good for you.
    Sometimes I'll make chocolate oatmeal.....using a healthy dose of unsweetened cocoa powder....delish and smells incredible.

  4. congratulations and well done to your husband for helping you stick to your guns!

  5. WTG on resisting. I sometimes wonder if I will ever break free from the hold of sweets. I have to get more like you. Have great rest of your week.
