I had a dilemma yesterday in regard to the Snickers bar. My problem with sweets in general is that once I start eating them, I have a portion control issue. I can’t just have ONE. The other side of the coin is that when I have sweets, I can’t just “save it for later.” I have to eat it right THEN like someone who hasn’t had food in weeks. So the fact that I was able to go the whole day with it sitting right in front of me and not eat it? A fairly big deal.
So, this morning, I come into work and that Snickers bar was still there. So I did what any normal and sane person would do:
The irony of this, is that after I finished this, I walked to the printer at work. Adjacent to the printer is a little filing cabinet. On top of the filing cabinet were a bunch of chocolates a vendor had brought for us. I laughed and grabbed my stuff off the printer and went back to my desk.
Later in the morning when no one was watching, I swiped all the chocolates and dumped them in the trash. Hey, I have a little candy problem I am trying to kick. I can’t have that stuff around.
Now, as long as I can keep this strength up, I a m headed in the right direction.
