Today, sugared goodies did enter my mind every now and then, but it didn't result in the tragicomedy that was yesterday. This gives me hope for the rest of the month. I know I will have some bad days when the thought of not indulging will almost drive me over the edge, but I'm prepared for that. I think. We'll see.
The structure of being at work helps a lot, too. I'm chained to my desk for eight hours and there's no vending machine in our building (thank you, Dr. Palmer for that!)...so if I really wanted to eat sugar, I'd have to walk over to the next building, and let's face it, my laziness trumps my urges every time.
On to today's Thank You!
Grateful for the Rain! It hardly ever rains here in San Diego, and when it does, I fully enjoy and appreciate it (except when I'm driving - these crazy California drivers don't know how to drive in weather). This is from outside my office window.I want to mention one more thing for which I'm grateful. I don't have a picture of it, because taking a picture of it would have been just plain weird.... I was in line at Henry's and the guy ahead of me was buying a bunch of vegetables, all of which I recognized except one. I stood there and thought about whether or not I should ask him what they are. My shy, introverted self said don't bother, he'll probably just gruffly respond and you'll be sorry you asked. But the risk-taker in me said, ah heck (censored), just ask him. Turned out to be a marvelous and fun conversation between him, me, the gal behind me and the checker. In that moment, we were all kindred spirits. Grateful for unexpected surprises. (They were tomatillos.)
(Naturally) Sweet Dreams to you!
