Restraint is elusive to me.  I have no almost no restraint.  I have enough restraint to keep me from tackling the guy in front of me at the grocery store who took the last Twix bar.  Instead I just grab the Snickers and wish I had the Twix.  

If you haven't guessed my main area of restraintlessness (pretty sure I just invented a new word yourwelcome) is in the food department.  I enjoy food way too much.  

My Mama has crazy good restraint.  Especially when it comes to food.  She's one of those people who keeps a bag of M&M's  in her cupboard and only eats a few when she is craving something sweet. Conversely, I'm one of those people that if I have an open bag of M&M's in my cupboard I keep finding reasons to go into the kitchen and then I snatch a handful.  See? Zero restraint. 

I'm working on it, honestly I am.  My waist line and clothes that keep tightening around my growing tummy, demand that I learn some restraint.  So since I can't afford to go buy an entirely new wardrobe, I'm going to try...... I'll let you know how that goes.....

Have a great day!

  1. Having recently (okay, it was this evening) consumed a bag of "sharing, 2 serving size" bag of M&Ms all on my own, I can relate. Especially depressing as it completely sabotaged the reasonably good workout I got in earlier today. Clearly I could use some restraint of my own, but I'll wish you luck with yours.

    1. I feel your pain, Cheri. I'm impressed you worked out! Good for you! I need to do that more, but that means I'd have to grow some will power. And although I've looked I can't seem to find "will power seeds" in the garden section. Good luck! And thanks for stopping in!
