Hopefully you read that title with the bit of sarcasm that was in my head.
Last night, my husband came home from his business trip to Hawaii. He brought gifts. He got our son a few cute t shirts, he got us a new fridge magnet (tradition), he bought me a new coffee mug and some kona coffee (yum), and he also brought a box of chocolate covered macadamia nuts.
The old me would have torn into that box and ate the whole thing last night.
The new me is trying to learn to trust myself.
I haven’t opened the box yet, but I want to use this as an opportunity to practice my mindful eating. Tonight I will look at the label and add the NI to my fitness pal.
I have to remind myself that this is NOT about control, it’s about choice. It’s OK to choose to have some if I want it.
