I have read this blog off and on for a couple years. She sells a couple items with her logo on them. One item that I have always liked is a bracelet, one of those rubbery ones. It says "One bite at a time. One decision at a time." She is having a 50% of sale so I bought two (incase I loose one.) I have been wearing it the last couple days. The first day I wore it with the words facing out. I wanted someone to notice, someone to ask me about it. That was Tuesday. As you know Tuesday night did not go very well and Wednesday I was kind off my game. I did not wear the bracelet. I noticed, at lunch time, that I wasn't wearing it. I was sitting in Islands eating nacho's and thought about what I was eating and how many calories it was. I stopped mid meal because I didn't need any more. Thursday I wore the bracelet. At the school where I work kids often bring in cupcakes. I was halfway through eating one when I glanced at my bracelet. "One bite at a time." I threw the rest away, I didn't need to keep taking bites just because I started. Later at the grocery store I was walking down the bread aisle, which in my store has all of the Hostess and Little Debbie products as well. A bag of Little Debbie Krueler donuts caught my eye. I love those. The problem is I eat an entire bag in one sitting. As I walk away I look down at my bracelet, "One decision at a time." If junk is not in my house then I can not eat it. Will the bracelet fade into the background in a couple weeks. Sure, that is how life goes. But for right now it helps me make those hard decisions; like throwing away half a cupcake that tastes so delicious.

Oh, and did I mention I am
drinking soda again?
Tomorrow my big plans are to get rid of my adjustable bed that is driving me crazy because I can't get anyone to actually come and get it even free. Then I need to work on my final project for one of my early childhood classes. I have to do a PowerPoint presentation and I have no idea what I am going to do for it. And yes, I should have started it by now seeing that it is due by midnight, sat night. At least I have all of my other work done so I focus directly on this project.
