It’s not my fault I ate the chips!
We have a few rules in my house:
1. No chips allowed
2. No baked goods allowed
3. No Diet Coke/Pepsi
I was out of town last weekend and I came home to chips in the cupboard and Diet Coke in the fridge. My husband broke the rules. We have the rules for me – not for him. He can say no to salt, I cannot. He can say no to sugar, I cannot. Neither of us can say no to carbonation. So I just inhaled a handful of chips – Salt & Vinegar Tim’s – I don’t even like those chips, dammit! If I’m gonna have chips give me some Doritos! Then I guzzled down half a DC. Ahhhhh, bubbles… But it’s definitely not my fault since my husband brought this stuff in the house.
Sound familiar . . . . .
This is all completely true, by the way. I know personal trainers aren’t supposed to like crappy food. I’ll let you in on a little secret. Most of us like it, we’re just really good at saying no to it. For me I gotta keep it simple. It has to STAY OUT OF THE HOUSE. That’s all there is to it. If it’s not there, I can’t eat it, right?? Easy as pie.
So go open up your cupboards and fridge and see what you can dump out NOW! The more you dump now, the more calories you save yourself from later, what a beautiful thing!
I’m dumping the rest of the chips and DC out this instant! Thanks for motivating me!
