I had my chocolate before breakfast this morning. I know I am not supposed to reward myself with food and I know that depriving myself of chocolate could cause me to binge. It is dangerous for me to have too much candy of any kind too accessible in my house. That being said I can have successfully parceled out small bits and pieces of a small dark chocolate bar if bliss over a period of 7 to 10 days. This could be a streak for me! If I know that my chocolate stash is running low I can make it last and delay my satisfaction from one bite to the next with a whole day in between. I don't do so well all the time with all things, but I have learned how to do it with my chocolate. If I can be consistent in this area I am confident that eventually I will experience the cross-cross effect with other things in my life, like exercise and tracking earlier in the evening rather than waiting like Cinderella and getting too close to midnight for comfort. This is changing my all or nothing way of thinking. I AM making progress!
