Lazy Sunday Afternoon & the Snack Monster is Creeping Up on Me

Sunday, June 27, 2010

Good grief! I am so bored! My snack monster is creeping up on me. I'm working and there are chocolate chip cookies staring me down with their beady chocolate chips eyes and screaming, "EAT ME"! I've already succumbed to their pleas twice now and if I don't get out of here, I am going to go down for the count on the whole plate.

So far this week, I've been doing really good and I don't know why I'm having such a hard time today. Oh wait, I do know - I AM SO BORED!

Yesterday, I was out with hubby and we were out and about running errands and shopping. Right around lunch time, we found ourselves at Costco and they're hot dogs just sounded so good. Before SP, whenever I found myself at Costco, I would get TWO hot dogs. Yesterday, I only had one and I was pretty full for the rest of the afternoon.

I even avoided most of the food tastings that Costco has all throughout the store with the exception of one oatmeal raisin cookie but before taking it, I did read the nutritional content first to get a good idea of what I was eating and it seemed ok.

Only 25 more minutes to go and so far no more breakdowns. Maybe if I just stay here on SP and just focus on reading success stories that will get my through the next 25 minutes. Once I get home, I'll be safe. No more sinful temptations staring me down. Once I get home, I can go for a walk and clear my head of scrumptious, gooey cookies. Once I get home, I'll be safe.

Thx for being here at this very moment fellow sparkers.

    Jay75rey - OY VEY! Costco can be a dangerous place on a Saturday! But I was really great! I've actually been really good (for the most part) since I started SP nearly two weeks ago. I've had a few weak moments (which is what yesterday afternoon was) but I'm back on track this morning.

    It truly is one day at a time isn't it? Thx for stopping by; I really appreciate it. Have a good day and take care of yourself (and your leg).

    I love cookies, Costco samples in the store, and the $1.50 hotdog and soda. and their churros, too! I would have caved in, especially to the cookies. good going, one day at a time!
    also the walking sounds nice...with my bum leg right now, I'm trying low impact stuff like the bike,

    Teriana - Crazy Fat Lady - LMAO! Not that $^!%# again. Mark my words, one of these days, I'm going to beat the holy crap out of that $^!%# and her (bleeping) accomplices. For now though, I will settle for this particular battle.

    Today is a new day and I feel like a warrior (just went on my nearly 5mi walk).


    Carla - Thx for the support and encouragement; I really appreciate it. Sometimes, just talking about temptation (or in this case writing about it) can ease the moment.

    Have a great day ladies and thx for stopping by; I really appreciate it.

    Let me tell ya, reading success stories and members' blogs about achievements last week REALLLLY pulled me through a fast food restaurant temptation for lunch one day. I hope you were able to put those beady-eyed cookies in their place and show them that your will to succeed is more powerful than their pleas!

    Good job on just 1 Costco hot dog and not having all the samples throughout the store!

    I think those chocolate chip cookies are accomplices of the "Crazy Fat Lady" who lives in our heads! Ha ha. Good job, 2 cookies are better than 22 cookies, and 1 Costco hot dog is better than 2. I am holding out for my Skinny Cow treat tonight. So far so good, made it through the weekend without any major screw ups. Sounds like you did too. We begin again tomorrow...
