- Four weeks ago I was Peanut M&M-free.
- Three weeks ago I ate Peanut M&M's at the movies.
- Two weeks ago I ate a Peanut M&M's at work.
- One week ago I ate another pack at work. Huh?
- Then today I bought MORE.
I was just about to inhale this latest package when the reasonable part of my brain came alive to inform me that a greedy habit was brewing.
I could (A) keep feeding the habit in it's pubescent stage until it was a full grown monster, or I could (B) not eat anymore and wither away in temptation.
But I didn't do either. I concocted a way to get my Peanut M&M's to love me back.
How to Eat Candy Guilt Free
I'm like a canine who does tricks for doggy snacks. And I'm all about the office stairwell climb. Today I climbed a high a record high 1,200 steps in one work day. I conquered this feat in 4 sets of 300 stairs (it only takes a few minutes).
So here's the Reward. Every time I conquered 200 steps, I earned one doggy snack Peanut M&M.
1,200 steps climbed = 6 M&M's into my Food Trap. This is way better than eating the entire 250 calorie package.
I found a way to practice moderation and squash a potential M&M's addiction. And the stairwell climb had me breathing harder than I did on my last run from the police.
Do YOU have a greedy habit brewing? Whatcha gonna do about it?
