Cookies. Just the word makes me want to bolt to the nearest shopping mall and go grab some Mrs. Fields.
This past Friday night Amy made chocolate chip cookies…. for the kids of course. As soon as I saw them in the oven I fought the inward battle haha. I knew the kids would down a few and Lil Squish would put away a few as well and that there would probably be a half-dozen or so left for temptation.
Are you super disciplined and can limit yourself to just one? I must confess not me. If I eat one, I eat another, and then another until the plate is empty. Why? Even though I was a huge fan of cookie monster growing up, I’m not a fan of the one that lurks within me. If I eat one it awakens him and he takes over.
My wife strategize a plan, knowing her husband, and made sure she only made enough for everyone to have a few and that their would be only one leftover for me. I resisted until I realized wait, I can have one and their won’t be any left boom! Great idea babe! Why didn’t you come up with that years ago? Sorry she isn’t to blame that would be me.
Where is this going? You must make a plan and come up with a solution for sugar. It is said to be more addictive than cocaine. If you can limit yourself to a small portion all power to you, but if you have a limited amount of self-control than wait until there’s hardly anything left before you partake, to avoid the binge.
Do you have a cookie monster within? What kind of plan can you come up with to guard your temple from the addictive side of sugar? What is a sugar alternative that could work for you to avoid waking the cookie monster within?
