Last night I had a little tiny situation. I was very hungry yesterday, even after my sweet potato at lunch, so I ate more than I had planned after getting home. I consumed 12 points extra but it was all from pretty healthy food. After my dinner I made one of my sister’s famous shakes, had some wasabi peas, coffee, and a yogurt. I think I needed it all because I was feeling so hungry. I had just finished my 6 mile run and was feeling very good about my body and then came the “situation”. DUM DUM DUUUUUM!!!
My wife casually said that she was going to go get a chocolate donut and asked me to go. Of course I wanted to go! But was it for the donut or for the wife. What do you think I went for 🙂
I went to be with my wife of course. I love to be with her and I was feeling pretty satisfied before we left. So as you see in the picture, my wife is checking out the Krispy Kreme donuts. I did not get any and I did not even have a taste of hers. I reached my hand out to have just a taste probably at least 3 or 4 times but pulled back just in the nick of time. It was a good win and my wife and I were both proud of me. I also learned that being satisfied as far as hunger goes is a big help in situations like these.
What causes you to get the win when you do? When you are faced with something yummy and you decide not to do it, what is that brings you through?
