Proud as a... well you know...

I'm very proud of myself today. I had an extremely stressful day at the office - the kind that makes you wish there more hours in the day to get it all done. While I knew I would survive my jam-packed day, I wasn't sure if I'd manage to do so without resorting to (junk) food for a little comfort. Our kitchen is loaded with potato chips, microwave popcorn, candy, chocolate, soft drinks, and many other such goodies. While there are also healthier choices such as fresh fruit, I really didn't want to start eating anything in there at all. It's a slippery slope from apple to yogurt to Sun Chips to Fig Newtons to Oreos to a KitKat bar. I didn't want to go anywhere near it for fear (based on experience) that my will would not survive the tempting treats.

A few times during the day I wondered if I should just forget about my healthier lunch and just have something 'bad'. My mind twisted it around in such a way to convince me that because things were so crazy I deserved to eat whatever I wanted.

Good try, Brain, but I saw through that today and I came out on top!  Not a speck of junk food passed these lips. I ate what I brought from home and got through my day feeling much better.

It's a small victory, granted, but I'm taking a moment to congratulate myself for getting through that insane day without seeking comfort from food.
