When I went grocery shopping today, I went into the aisle with the honey and the maple syrup for… well, honey and maple syrup. Natural sweeteners.
The only problems is that the honey and maple syrup is in the aisle with Nutella, peanut butter and things like that. It’s right next to the aisle with the baked goods.
I walked to the next aisle, and I stood looking at a pack of four Snowballs, thinking, “I want you. I will buy you, and I will eat all four of you when I’m in my room, alone.”
I stood there, looking at the Snowballs, and I reached out for them…
And I didn’t take them.
I didn’t take anything that wasn’t on my original grocery list.
For a treat, I bought myself a honeydew melon.
I really, really wanted those Snowballs, but I’m doing this challenge, and I’m only four days in. I’m not gonna cave in already.
I saw that temptation, and I didn’t give in.
I’m pretty damn proud of that.
Plenty of willpower.
I’ve got this thing in the bag.
