(ha, just realized I keep updating on even-numbered days)
Well, so far, so good.
Today, however, I was faced with my first serious temptation.
A coworker handed out candy to everyone. She put in on my desk before I could decline. I immediately picked it up to eat and then realized my challenge-in-action. Crap.
I then sat and thought about what was happening. I like candy. I'm not hungry. I'm actually not in the mood for it. When I googled the candy to see what flavor it was (had a certain color wrapper), I discovered I don't even like this flavor! Huh. Normally, I would have eaten it without thinking twice, without realizing I wouldn't even enjoy it. Talk about mindless eating!
I finally put it in my work drawer and will pass it on to another coworker later in the day. It seems like a tiny, petty scenario but it really made me think.
