How easy it is to give into temptation?

So much so that they love to milk it for all it’s worth on TV shows like The Biggest Loser.

The temptation to drink soft drink when I think I’m thirsty.

The temptation to eat chocolate when I feel like a snack.

The temptation to grab some fast food when I’m in a hurry.

These three are definitely my biggest challenges. But once I got off the sugar merry-go-round it was remarkably straight-forward to resist the urge.

It’s certainly a lot easier when the cravings aren’t there. But it’s much more achievable once you break the cycle.

And it helps having an alternative replacement:

Water instead of Coke.

A piece of fruit as a substitute for chocolate.

Leftovers from last night’s awesome dinner rather than McDonalds.

Triggers (referred to in a previous post) are similar but refer more to recurring situations where a habit has been formed.

A temptation is more general and often comes from a lust for something sweet.

Remaining one step ahead of the game is everything. A little forethought and planning goes a long way to ensuring success.
