Well, my almost-19-yr-old son has decided he wants to move to Arizona. And he's leaving Monday.
Which has me in a bit of a tailspin. But I've know of his plan since August, I just kept hoping he'd change his mind.
It's not that I'm against it, I'm just going to miss him terribly. But I want him to be happy and to succeed.
He'll be staying with an aunt and uncle and cousin (his age), and they are requiring him to be in school in order to stay with them, so that's a good thing. I hope he likes it, and that he acclimates well. But I'm gonna miss him.
So a couple days ago I asked him if there was anything in particular he'd like for dinner before he leaves. His answer: Chicken Paprikas. With homemade sour cream dumplings. Lots of dumplings.
This happens to be one of my all-time favorite foods, so you can see the dilema, right? Big, BIG temptation here. Carb-frickin-city!!
So, I am going to try and keep it to a reasonable amount, and I will go out and do my C25K tonight, so hopefully I can mitigate it at least a little bit.
This is really one of my biggest weaknesses. Hopefully there won't be any left-overs in the fridge!
So here's my question: when you know you are going to be faced with a strong temptation, what do you do to successfully minimize the damage? How do you prevent an all-out binge?
Suggestions, strategies, please!!!
One more note: I caved and got on the scale today. Lost 1 lb. I guess its better than nuthin!
