Fighting the Urge

Right now I am sitting in front of the TV, relaxing and watching a movie. Today is my day off, so I think I deserve some R&R. The issue is that I want to munch! Really, really badly... But tonight I am making taco soup and I want to save POINTS so that I can have 2 cups of it and maybe a little bit of ice cream for dessert.

I am not even "snack hungry". I am not really bored either, it's like I just want to crunch or chew. I wanted to go cook some pudding for the rest of the week for snacks, but am afraid cooking will trigger a mini-binge.

I think I just came up with a solution. I am going to grab a couple of sugar free lifesavor sorbet candies to keep my mouth occupied and I am also going to make that pudding; I don't want cravings to control me. But I will NOT have a snack because I am not hungry yet.

I have this problem too. Especially since I am trying to quit smoking. Those candies are a good idea, I'll have to keep those in mind :)

Just be careful not to have to many sugar free candies. They can have a very unpleasant effect on your *clears throat* bowel movements.
