Resisting Temptation

I’m weak.  I just can’t help myself.  After a life-long love affair with junk food, I struggle everyday to resist the temptation of those delicious treats I grew up with.  When I’m home, it’s easier.  So much easier.  Because I don’t make it accessible.  I don’t buy Hostess cupcakes or Cheetos.  Because I know what it will do to my body.

Instead, I fill my kitchen with snacks like homemade crackers, fruit, and cheese.  Because I know that these are the foods I am supposed to eat.  And most of the time, it’s good.

But as soon as I leave the house, I’m like a college freshman at her first frat party.  Every drive-thru calls to me.  Every vending machine taunts me.  I daydream of DQ Blizzards and McDonalds cheeseburgers. 

One of my biggest fears surrounding returning to the work force is the temptation of being out of the house everyday…  for lunch…  Of being just a short drive away from a butterburger or a chili cheese burrito…

But so far, so good.  I’ve managed to bring a healthy, home-prepared meal for lunch everyday this week.  It helps that we haven’t any extra cash to be spending on unnecessary expenses like eating out.  But today was payday…  And you can’t be good all the time…  So, I think I forsee a little splurge in the near future…  :)
