Short and maybe not so sweet

Wednesday, May 22, 2019

This evening marks the end of my 2nd week and already I feel the pull of backsliding *sigh* I’m reviewing my food and activity logs, and have found at least one problem — my favorite Mexican restaurant. I knew this was going to be a problem and I had planned for it from the outset: changing what I usually order, no more sweet tea, cutting back on the number of visits I make (embarrassingly too many!) . . . even the chips and salsa. But there’s my problem. Not the chips so much — it’s the salsa. Just your average Tex-Mex tomato based salsa, but I’m beginning to think they use some secret addictive Mexican herb in it to keep their customers coming back! It’s almost as if I HAVE to go there, not just that I want to — and it’s all for the salsa. If I could just get the chips and salsa without ordering anything else, I’d be perfectly satisfied. But, a la Scarlett O’Hara, “tomorrow is another day.” Beginning of week 3, and ready to get the show back on track!

    At least you are aware of the issue - so now just take it one day at a time to get it under control. For me one big issue is spaghetti - could eat it every night. So back last September decided I would limit myself to one meal of it a month - and because of doing that it does not have control over me any longer. Don't know if that would work for the salsa - allowing yourself to have one good meal a month of it. You can do it though as I believe you will find a way to take back the control the food has over you.

    I love salsa also, I now make my own and I have adjusted the ingredients around so it delicious and does not have an ill-effect on me, keep trudging that road to happy destiny.
