I've developed a habit that when I'm tempted with something immediate I think long and hard about "what would taste better than this blueberry muffin?" and if I can think of something that usually takes the tempetation away. Or I think "gee I make awesome blueberry muffins myself!" and then by promising myself that I'm going to make some when I get home that too gets rid of the immediate trigger to eat the muffin.
That is a great way to think about it. I will keep that in mind! Also most foods have so much added crap in them if I can make it myself it will be way healthier and probably taste better for a ton of things. And I do think you are right the thought of having it later may curb the trigger to stuff it all in my face right now lol!
