Y'all Gone Make Me Lose My Mind!

Seriously we all have those days where we feel like we're not in control of our own will power! Today is one of those days for me, and I wanted to share with you what I do to help me get through a moment where I feel like I could eat four large pizzas, a bucket of fried chicken, a pint of Ben & Jerry's and a zebra.
My brother recently mailed me a ginormous bag of macadamia kisses from Hawaii, as if that wasn't my favorite  nut to begin with, you have to throw chocolate on top of it?! Goodness gracious. I kept the bag closed and hidden for a good 24 hours, determined to not break into it! THEN, I see my hunk of a husband (who stays ripped year-round) chowing down on them... Blue foil wrappers everywhere. I felt like I wanted to cry! I couldn't remember the last time I had candy.. So I grabbed a kiss and ate it. Then I grabbed four more.. Then two more after that. Then suddenly the realization sets in, and I remember my goal, and that eating junk isn't the way to get there. So here I am... Distracting myself. Distraction is KEY in will power, and will power only gets stronger the more it's practiced. 
When I feel antsy and want to go do a drive by at McDonald's I distract. I write, I take my yellow boy for a walk, I chop vegetables, I clean. I do anything to take my mind off whatever it is I want.  Today I whipped up a chocolate raspberry chia ice cream, and it seriously hit the sweet tooth spot, and the best part about it? Zero guilt associated!
