Battles Won (Food Edition)


I’ve been eating way too much lately. I was so happy to be able to eat solid food again that I totally overdid it. I’m outta control! So today, I focused on the little battles. Look at all the skirmishes I won:

  • Half bowl of cereal instead of overflowing bowl of cereal. (I love big bowls, and I cannot lie.)
  • Soup and banana for lunch instead of fast food
  • Water at work instead of soda (I never used to drink soda. Damn you, Free-Sodas-At-Work!)
  • The remaining piece of lemon bundt cake still remains
  • Didn’t buy the candy bar at the store, even though I picked it up and psychically ate it
  • Didn’t buy a Frostie on the way home
  • Didn’t buy a chocolate shake on the way home
  • Didn’t buy a Slurpee on the way home
  • Didn’t eat the greasy tortilla chips that came with my healthy fish taco

I still have to make it through another few hours before I can call today a victory. My chocolate stomach is empty and growling. I don’t know if I can ignore it, or if I’m going to have to appease it somehow. Sadly, I’m out of willpower reinforcements. It’s gonna be a long night.

Did you win any tiny battles today?

  • The food battle is one I fight every day. If you want to fend off the chocolate longing…try buying a bag of mini's. I got a bag of peppermint patties. If I got the craving, I ate just one little mini. (of course sometimes its hard not to eat the whole bag…) :)
