It happens to all of us! During the holidays, additional temptations lurk in the grocery aisles. Beautifully packaged candies, baked goods, and even samples of appetizers call out from the shelves and tables. My grocery store includes a Starbucks from which the scent of holiday coffee flavors waft enticingly throughout the entire shopping experience!
It helps to know it's going to happen and to take appropriate steps to resist the urge to indulge--even "just this once." Some ideas to get you through....
- Shop with a list.
- Shop with a satisfied tummy.
- Have a piece of hard candy or gum if the temptation gets REALLY strong.
