Day 139: sweet dreams

19 May

Can you guess where I am?

Here’s a photo hint….

Do you know what’s in that little baggie of goodness?

The one.
The only.
DoubleTree chocolate chip cookie!!

That’s right, I’m at the Orlando DoubleTree hotel.
Ah, the famous home of warm, baked, chocolate chip cookies!

I can’t believe I turned down a cookie today.
I said no to the wonderfully helpful and welcoming woman at the front desk.

She looked at me like I had two heads.
And, really, I do.

There is one head:  the thinking one.
She is pretty much scared of sugar and convinced it is a toxin after watching this little video. 

Then, there is the other head:  the craving one.
She craves chocolate and sugar.  She looooooves chocolate and sugar.
And she can justify eating it any time of day.

Today, the thinking head won.
I turned down the chocolate chip cookie and can honestly say I have never done that before!

I’m not saying I will never have chocolate or sugar ever again. But, after going this long, over a month now, I’m not ready to break the streak.

Plus, I just know what happens when I start with these little cookies… I can’t stop.

(Case in point:  I have literally asked the DoubleTree hotel for seconds, thirds and fourths of those lovely cookies before.  Seriously.  And, the hotel will oblige!)

This is a major (huge!) change in my life.
I might be dreaming of those yummy cookies.
But, I’m saying no.

Because, I am committed to creating sweetness, long lasting sweetness in the form of healthy habits for my head, heart, body and soul.

And, I guess, dear DoubleTree delight, that’s just the way the cookie crumbles.
