Yesterday at lunch I remembered hitting the bull’s-eye is not automatic. Minor deviations result in major misses. Yesterday’s choice was between a medium combination pizza with the extra cheese I craved and the small tuna salad I decided on. The good guys won yesterday’s battle for lunch. The celebration followed.
I wanted to mark the win with a couple dozen donut holes dipped in cake frosting I found hidden on the lower shelf of the refrigerator door. Then I remembered …
I am most likely to lose big immediately following a big win.
I read the instructions again. It took the same amount of time it would have taken to eat the donut holes smothered in frosting; less filling, too. Logging wins is more fun than recording losses.
The day’s final attack came yesterday evening when we went to the movies. I resisted the hot dogs and colorful sweet drinks but almost fell for the popcorn. I escaped. That was yesterday. I’m grateful I never have to repeat yesterday. Today’s battles will be the same, but different. Here we go.
