I have to make a confession. I love carbs. Love.
And while I make pretty good choices with my fruits and vegetables...it goes the same for carbs. Too much of a good thing is not always good.
I did what I had to do...and I know there are starving children out there and people who cannot afford food, but I had to throw away the cookies I had bought because I am not using self-control.
Cookies and quick carbs are a trigger food for me. I know it. I am going to do something about it.
I also listened to a podcast last night about sabotage words - try, but, wish.
Since I know that they (those lovely Trader Joe chocolate chip cookies) are a trigger food and I am not showing self-control and I know I need to do something about it...instead of saying, I wish I didn't eat them. Well, now I can't.
And since I know eating in front of the TV is not helpful for me and my journey, I am committing (not trying, but committing) to NOT eating my meals with the TV on. For a while, I was doing well with that and then I slowly, little by little, began again and wouldn't you know, the old behaviors come back with it.
No more. At least not this week. TV off for meals and snacks.
