Knowing When to Put Up the Fight

I am so good , thus far into 2019 in controlling my carb intake which for me is primarily just sweet snacking.  Yes I am a relative to Cookie Monster and  I love cakes also pies.  No I really don’t like pies just the crust.

I do have two cookbooks with receipts for a healthier alternative to my sweet tooth.  FIXATE by Autumn Calabrese, also have a Paleo desert cookbook.  Both are awesome, but sometimes you want a little more.  When this occurs I am good for following the rule of 2BMindset, this is a great nutritional tool to follow on a daily basis if you need assist with over consumption daily.  All good, yes but on my weak days, which are not often, well compared to a year ago or six months ago, I am unable to savor the flavor and stop.

I am not talking about just stopping because I want more, NO I am satisfied but I continue to eat.  Before you develop an opinion it is not because I have withheld too long.   Nope it’s because I have either purchased, baked too much and no one wants it and I don’t want to toss it.  I have begun to put up the fight, yes either purchase smaller size if not available then it’s a skip, decrease recipes. Also I am evaluating my craving is it a craving or an alternative to my angry and frustration of a situation, boredom or a self guilty pleasure I know I will regret.  

Craving I can handle I know when to stop but all the others I need a muzzle well I’ve tossed out the muzzle and just put up the fight and thus far I may have won a few rounds.

Just sharing and asking if you have positive recommendations I am opened.  Have a great nutritional day.
