I have this situation. I am in love with all things sweet....as of late. That and cob salad. (But that is beside the point as I do not have immediate access to The Best of All Salads on a daily basis.) Anyway, so as I said I'm sort of head over heals for sugary things lately. However, I also am in love with losing the last bit of weight left over from Tennyson. Do you see the problem.
I have started running/walking daily, again. Which I adore. But then I think, "It's OK to have some cheese cake today. Because I'm running again." So anything I burned off I put right back on at some point in the day. Obviously, I am more enamored with sugary highs than looser jeans. But in my brain, that causes fights.
I try, try, try to be strong. Eventually turning off my brain so I can't listen to it make logical arguments as to why carrot cake should not be considered a highlight of the day. I tell my brain that I am a mother of three who deserves some "me" time. If I chose to have cake in said time, then I will have cake.
I also make the counter argument that there is a very good chance that I will lose some of those calories later on as I am running from a monster Spiderman is trying to save me from. Or from princess ballerina dance festivals. "The possibilities of caloric loss are endless", I insist.
And so my sweets induced reasoning wins out and I snuggle down in my couch determined to enjoy every last bite. All the while reflecting that if I eat it all, it won't be here to tempt me tomorrow. Then I won't even have this struggle.......hmmmm.....sounds tempting doesn't it?
