How to handle an irresistible urge for dessert

Gene Wilder quote
Screen shot from LinkedIn a couple months ago..

 

Last night after a simple, and solo, dinner – Cheryl’s at Disney, Chapin is in San Francisco – i had an almost irresistible urge for a sugary dessert.

Since i already had my one weekly allotment on Sunday night, i knew this was a battle i needed to win.

i also knew that if i could distract myself through some activity that would put time between dinner and the urge, that i stood a fighting chance.

It worked.

i’m telling you though, when you’re alone, tired, and feeling the urge, there are a million reasons why “this time won’t hurt, it’s just a small exception”.
