NoS Day 3

April 23, 2008

So far, this NoS thing is pretty easy. I’ve had several “trials” — I’ve been ‘tested’ in my resolve a few times — in the past few days, but I’ve managed to get through them without giving in. šŸ™‚

The first was when my husband wanted me to go to the store to get a couple of cans of pop. He didn’t know I’m doing this NoS thing (I didn’t want him to start playing “diet police”, like he usually does when he knows I’m dieting), so he didn’t know that suggesting I go get pop was “tempting” to me, more so than normal. I went to the store, determined not to give in, and bought him a pop… and got myself a bottle of flavored water instead.

The second incidence — which I thought would be really difficult, but turned out to be not so bad — was my attendance at Bible study last night. There’s usually a plethora of wonderful snacks offered, and I always have a hard time NOT having any. So, I thought for sure I’d not be able to resist. But, I took along my bottle of water, and made up my mind to stay far away from the snack table. And, I did just that. I moved the bowl of M&Ms away from the table where I chose to sit, and didn’t go near the snack table. So, no snacking for me!

The last “trial” was today… hubby wanted to go to McDonald’s for lunch. And, since we don’t go out to eat often, I really wanted to do so. But, I was having trouble figuring out how to get a combo-meal without the pop (not supposed to have “sweets” throughout the week, remember?). I finally gave up and just told hubby about my “diet”, and he decided to get us 2 BigMacs, super-size fries to share, and NO pop at all for either of us. šŸ™‚Ā  That was sweet. And, I was able to bring my meal home (we went through the drive-thru), and have milk instead of pop. Whoo!

You know, this isn’t as “difficult” as I thought it would be. I thought I’d have a lot harder time avoiding snacks and sweets. Mind you, avoiding the sweets still gets me at times — I’ll see an advertisement for chocolate something-or-other, or for candy, and I’ll get a craving. But, I just remind myself that I can have it on the weekend, and eventually the craving passes. šŸ™‚Ā  I think I can do this!

For the record (as you’ll see on my Progress page), I’ve had two SUCCESSFUL days, so far, out of 2! So, we’re on a roll! Hopefully I can keep it up! Two-and-a-half more days to go! šŸ˜€
