Setting up for failure?
Friday, April 23, 2010
Buy one get one and coupons....how could I resist. My kids love mini donuts and what mom doesn't want to get their kids what they want
I have my stock of snacks in the house. they actually take up a small cabinet. I was prepared. I could do this
NO I COULDN'T
I am an emotional and binge eater (thanks Raven2feathers for your blog on this) and with all going on in my life bringing those donuts in.....not the smartest move I've made.
I did can recognize that this is something I am going to have to confront and overcome but you know what today isn't that day and that's okay
I think it is important to recognize what we can and cannot do. Of course we all have strength to overcome things we think we can't. I also believe that knowing limits are important. With that being said there are times in our lives when it is best to not try to conquer everything at once. For me this is one of those times.
So I have learned that I can't have donuts in the house until I am able to handle them or at least have something that I believe is a great substitution.
thank goodness i only bought the two bags and have been offering them to the kids hoping to finish them quickly
So I am going to continue to set myself up for success and simply accept not every battle will be won at first but will be eventually
