I would have been good if I hadn't eaten the peanut M&M my father-in-law threw at me. Once I start eating them I cannot stop!! Next time I plan to throw it away. I ended up eating a couple handfuls of those and when went into the dining room to find a plate full of sugar cookies and scotcharoos. Sugar cookies are some of my favorite cookies. So I ate one (or three) of those!
For dinner I ordered sweet & sour chicken and of course I had to enjoy the fortune cookie. My fortune was good! We ended the night with a game of euchre, wine, and more sugar cookies. It is so hard for me to say no to sweets! Once I start I just keep going and going like the energizer bunny.
When I woke up on Easter morning I immediately had my hand in the goodie jar. You think I would know better especially since breakfast was Mom's homemade caramel rolls. She generally only makes these during the holidays though so I enjoyed a few since we probably won't see them until Thanksgiving.
After we decided to play a few more games of euchre before dinner. I tried to put the candy dish at the other end of the table, but somehow it ended up right next to me. Growl! I looked over saw a Milky Way and was done. I love Milky Way and Twix and started eating them like I'd never see them again. I tried thinking about my goal of getting in the 150's this month, but it wasn't working. When my husband got up to refill his water I made him grab me a piece of gum. Finally something helped!
Dinner was delicious! My mother-in-law and sister-in-law make homemade potato rolls, which the entire family loves! That is what B ate all weekend since he is not a sweets person. After dinner there was pie and more cookies. I ate my pie pretty quickly though and forgot to take a picture. It was a chocolate creme pie. Yummy! I love chocolate!
My mother-in-law tried to send us home with a goody bag, but we didn't let her. :) When we got home I immediately put my workout clothes on so I was ready for a workout and headed downstairs about 30 minutes after we got home. I had planned on doing my normal 5k walk/run, but since I was so naughty I did a 6k.
I cannot handle having junk food around me. I don't make anything sweet or buy it. I am the only one that eats it and I cannot control myself around it. So anything that I know I have no control over is not allowed in the house. This means no sweets and no chips. I have no self control over these types of things and since my husband doesn't eat them I don't have them around.
How do you avoid temptations? Do you have any secrets to help you not over indulge?
