I come home from work to face villains in my kitchen.
It’s been a long day, and I felt quite virtuous to have contained myself to a salad and some plain roasted chicken for lunch.
First the open bag of potato chips sits there, staring at me with a “Come hither” pose.
I resist and pull back in terror. But before I get more than one step away…
I shift my head just a bit, and there is the single piece of apple pie leftover from Sunday dinner. It’s lonely, desolate, and exuding the need to join me (maybe with a nice cup of tea).
“No!!!” I shake my head and back away even further.
Just as I’m certain I’m in the clear, the dark, chocolately goodness of last night’s leftover brownies sings a siren song to me, inviting me to taste just a crumb. “A little bitty crumb won’t hurt you,” it whispers in a seductive purr.
In the end I succumb to half of the piece of pie. So far I’ve held off from devouring the rest, but who knows how long I will be able to be strong? Eating a celery stick isn’t going to cut it. I suppose I could drink some water, but that ruby port over there is looking far more enticing… 🙂
Anyone else have nutritional struggles, especially when you’re really trying to be good? Sigh…

This is my literal problem with staying healthy–sweet, sugary, diabetes inducing goodness. Thanks for letting me know I’m not alone haha

You’re definitely not alone. I blew it even further tonight with some spring rolls and tempura green beans for dinner (with a salad, as if that mattered by that point)…AND I ate a Ho-Ho cake. Well, at least the tempura beans were a “vegetable” LOL.
