Today is the most tempting day of the year

I'm just over a week out of surgery.

I work in an office building of about 1000 people administering health benefits.

It is literally the battle of food cultures everywhere in this building.

It's Cinco de mayo and also Asian Heritage day.

Everywhere you turn there's free tacos (good ones, I'm in central CA) ceviche, elotes, rice and Beans. There's a massive BBQ cooking asada.

Then there is every Asian food known to man.

Two weeks ago I could have done some serious damage to these endless buffets.

But I've got my beef broth to keep me company.

My surgery was two weeks before Christmas, a month before my birthday, and 6 weeks before Valentine's Day. I passed up all the treats and stuck to my plan. Darn it! Hahaha

Oh I know the feeling; next week is nurse's week and they like to give us hamburgers, hot dogs, and ice cream.

What I've found that helps is bringing my own take on the dish. This was a creative process during the pureed stage, but I digress. I already have 97% lean ground beef I plan on making into a lettuce burger and while I won't have ice cream, I do have a square of Sugar Free Chocolate I'm saving. It sounds weird, but it's honestly plenty now and I dont feel like I'm missing out.

a thought for YOu
Which is more important- that Junk food you have been craving for an hour?
Or that body you have been craving all your life?
The decision is YOURS!

      Behavioral modification is the key... I went to my first session of Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT) and it was incredible! We talked about the purpose behind certain unwanted behaviors as all behavior is developed to serve a purpose, being ready, willing and able, thought mapping (finding the origin/pattern of thought that ultimately contributes to certain unwanted behaviors), and replacing one behavior with another that's as equally rewarding, if not more.

      Having another blah food day today.  My lunch has been sitting here with me for almost two hours and all I've managed to eat was maybe 1/2 oz of grilled chicken and 2 cucumber slices.  Eff it, I'm done.
