Do you ever eat more than you should?
Do others push away from the table, saying they’ve had enough, while you linger for more?
I don’t know why it is that some people can take it or leave it — be the temptation be alcohol, food, or sex — while others get hooked on the feeling and can’t seem to manage their cravings properly.
Maybe we all have the weakness, but our fences are broken in different places. Some are alcoholics, some are gluttons, others are promiscuous… but each suffers from the same malady: an appalling lack of self control.
I glimpsed the beast in myself tonight. After we’d finished a round of homemade tacos, the others headed back to their desks, but I stayed for more shredded sharp cheddar cheese and black beans. I knew each bite was pushing me closer to my calorie limit for the day, and I’m committed to staying on track with my weight-loss goal, but it was difficult to stop.
I wanted more.

Reboot Logbook Day #15
All told, though, it was a pretty good day. Here are my assessments:
Body – 3: Despite the cheese and beans lust, I did well today. I enjoyed a salad for breakfast, another salad for lunch, and the all-too-tasty tacos for supper.
Mind – 3: I worked on a special guidebook for a client today. Plenty of research and thought. I also took time to walk and think. All told, an enjoyable adventure.
Spirit – 2: I began with The DEEP and did check in here and there, but all told… my spiritual walk was fairly paltry.
Here’s something else.
I normally don’t, but I took a sneak peak at my weight this morning. Rather than being down a couple of pounds this week, like I figured, I’m up a pound!
The official weigh-in is on Sundays. Looks like I’d better kick it into gear.
