DAY#24 - I am the Gate Keeper
I find myself needing to win the snacking war. Some days the battles are easy other times hard. I find the key to win the battle is to come out early and fight smart. My wife happens to be a proponent of this and I appreciate her for it. The battle against the snacking war starts at the grocery list and then continues to the store.
What it boils down to is I must be the gate keeper. The person who controls what comes in and what stays out of my house. Cause whatever comes in and out of my house eventually will go in my mouth. If it is not in my house it is much harder to get it in my mouth. So being the gate keeper is my job. This term reminds me of the move Ghost Busters. Where Rick Moranis spent his time looking for the gate keeper so he could unlock the gate and let out the evil demon Gozer and summon the end of the world.
My plight is probably not that drastic. But in my fight to control my eating and over-eating. I am just a package of Oreaos away from end of the world.
