Moist, rich and creamy cake...ohh so good

I walked up to that box containing the cake. I was bold as brass. I looked into the box that held the cut cake. Ohhh the cake looked moist. THe icing just begged to be eaten. The little hearts that adorned the outside of the cake just begged to be tested by my taste buds. I leaned down and breathed in the heavenly aroma of that cake. In inhaled deeply, taking the scent in and savoring it. I watched my co-workers as their faces showed the rapture as they ate this unexpected treat.

And I stood there and calmly ate my fresh pinepple chunks that I had packed for my lunch. I know this sounds weird, but I instinctively knew that I had to look that cake 'in the eye' and I had to smell that cake and I had to come up close and personal to that cake...and I had to win.

There is a sense of pride...empowerment if you will in what I accomplished today.

ON the same husband and I went out on the canal and walked for an hour this afternoon. At least 3 or 4 times while we were hiking he asked me if we were going to stop at Nutters (our local ice cream shop) on the way home. What do you think I answered??????
Nope, we did not stop.

I know how hard that must have been for you, but you have to be proud that you did it!

Good for you for resisting the cake and the ice cream shop! Sometimes you do have to prove that these things are "not the boss of me"!

You did it, great job. I'm not a huge sweets person, thank goodness, I have enough bad habits. You can do anything you put your mind to, (also talking to self). I'm glad you said no, it is very uplifting to accomplish something like that.

That's a great accomplishment!! Be super proud of yourself and next time you're tempted, think back on how good it felt to say "NO".
