I really have not been tempted to cheat, which I think it because I committed to this program. I was already good at cheating, so I chose to do the other thing this time, which is *not cheat*.
These are my recent temptations:
- My daughter made oatmeal cookies and left them on the counter where the smell got to me as I was preparing my food. I took a good wiff of them, enjoyed how delicious they smelled, and finished my dinner. The smell was enough.
- At the beach with my family, my brother was drinking a beer and he asked me to hold it for him. I enjoyed a few big sniffs of the beer, and handed it back to him.
- Eating out? My daughter has talked me into taking her out for dinner. I went to Logan's (a roadhouse type steak place). My meal was a 6 oz piece of top sirloin and some steamed broccolli. They make them all plain, and it was delicious. Bonefish grill can also prepare plain grouper (or other white fish) with asparagus, done on the grill without oil. The steak at Logans was the better meal (left some on the plate though), and only 10.99.
