A Serendipitous Kind of Day
Saturday, May 25, 2013
Something interesting just happened to me. In my 'review' on SparkCoach I wrote about an NSV I had yesterday. Here is what I wrote:
"I had an excellent day - I feel good about my progress. I had a breakthrough NSV yesterday when I 'slipped' and bought a package of Grandma's Peanut Butter Cookies at the checkout at the store. (NO that wasn't the breakthrough LOL.) The breakthrough was only eating ONE with my dinner!! I was full after one and (after seeing how many calories it had) saved the other one for today. I don't think I've EVER only eaten one cookie when more were available!! So thank you!!"
Then I got to the community page and found this: "Think about the last "mistake" you made that left you feeling upset or off track. Now re-frame that event as a learning opportunity. What did it teach you? How can you be better going forward? Share your insights in a blog post."
Is that serendipity or what? I had already written my blog!! Well, most of it. My friends KNOW that cookies are a huge trigger food for me. The only way not to eat them is to not have them in the house. Of course I knew that when I picked up the cookies, but I figured what the heck? Its only two.
But to eat only one? That HAS to be all I've learned on SparkPeople kicking in!! Needless to say I'm a happy camper today!! Oh yeah - the scales were down today too!! YAY!!
Oh - and to answer your next question (I hear you thinking this Chelle!) I did NOT eat it later in the evening!! I did eat it just now - and enjoyed it as much as I enjoyed the one yesterday. Life is GOOD!!
