hmmm... does coffee count as a food. My complex offers complimentary coffee and fresh baked cookies every day! AND they place the table right next to the glass doors to the gym (my complex is owned by sadist
). Anyway, I have been doing really good with staying away from the cookies... but coffee has become my 'treat.' I use part decaf and part reg, 1 packet of splenda, and skim milk.
I love cool whip... I try to use it in moderation but it is so easy to just scoop on into that tub when you have the spoon in hand. I fall into the 'a scoop for me, a scoop for the recipe..' trap. My willpower is a funny thing... Obvious things like a plate of cookies I avoid... it is all the small choices that add up that I need to keep in check.
Also... as my sweet tooth is kept in check, I have noticed that I am craving more salty things (nuts, olives, feta, etc...) maybe this has something to do with it...
