Lead us not into temptation
It is a simple fact that it is easier to resist temptation if the temptation isn’t there in the first place. If the chocolate isn’t in the house then it can’t get eaten.
Why not make it easier on yourself starting today? Detox your house and desk!
Remove all junk food from your kitchen. Empty any secret stashes of chocolate and lollies from the home. Sorry, but that includes the tub of ice cream in the freezer.
At work lose the snack packs from the second draw down. Do not have change for the vending machine. It is not your friend, don’t give it money!
While this is not guaranteed to work, what it will do is certainly make it harder. What you can’t get your hands on instantly, you can’t eat in that brief moment of weakness that we all get. If you have to go to an effort to get it, this at least affords you the opportunity to resist the temptation and recover the resolve.
There will be times when you give in to the cravings but I guarantee it will happen less than if temptation is close at hand.
