Usually I have pretty good willpower. And so far I've been doing great. Well tonight my DH made biscuits. Fresh they came out of the oven. Now I admit, I'm a person who doesn't really have the best sense of smell. But those biscuits looked good. And i did something while I was chatting with hubby in the kitchen.
In my hoodie was some chapstick which I randomly found while hanging in the kitchen wondering whether I was going to cave in or not. I feel my lips are chapped, so I put some on.
Well, low and behold, the smell of the chapstick was so strong, the thought of mixing biscuits with the chapstick was just gross. YUCK. It was BURT'S BEES Beeswax lipbalm. The peppermint oil in it just totally turned me off food.
I know people brush teeth or do other things that work for them. But I am keeping this chapstick in my pocket from now on!
