I have three goals this week:
- Eat whole foods
- Don’t eat out for lunch
- Don’t buy snacks from the machine.
This morning, I started out well. I had oatmeal and flax seed with a bit of honey for breakfast. And not a Bit-O-Honey, but an actual bit of honey. I felt pretty good about that, and even better about the other stuff I took to work – quinoa salad, an apple and roasted almonds.
But before I could get to the apple or the almonds or the quinoa, someone in my office brought in a dozen cupcakes.
There were cupcakes with white icing, and cupcakes with chocolate icing.
They were sitting on a table where I passed them every time I went to the restroom, every time I walked to the trash can, every time I went to the printer. And every single time I passed them all day long, there was one particular cupcake with chocolate icing that called to me.
But you know what? I didn’t eat the cupcake.
And some days, not eating a cupcake is a big accomplishment.
