I've been sitting at work all morning, really wanting to go out and get my favorite hot drink - half hot chocolate and half coffee. So yummy.
What you might not know is that for about a month or two, I would stop for one of these every.single.morning. on my way to work. That's just a little bit under $2 a day. Then I fell in love with frosted cinnamon rolls. Cinnamon rolls with FROSTING. Then I was paying around $3.50 a day.
That's almost $20 a week just on a morning snack.
What you also might not know is that I wasn't feeling well for a few days back in January. Because I wasn't feeling good, I wasn't eating well. By well, I mean barely at all for two days. I didn't stop for my morning snack those days.
When I finally got my appetite back, I didn't immediately get back that craving. Now, I stop every now and then, but not nearly as much as before. I'm thankful for the money I'm saving, and I'm sure my health is thankful for all the water I'm sipping on to replace my coffee. I've been drinking a lot of water.
But those hot chocolate coffees? Those are my little indulgences.
Some people have pop, or an alcoholic drink, or a meal out, or some spa time, but this is my only real addiction.
But my question to you is what's yours? What's is that one (or two or three) thing that you know you probably have way too often, but you can't or don't want to give up?
And how do you know when it's too much? When you should give it up, or if you're allowed to have this treat as much as you want? How do you control your little indulgences?
I'm glad I was able to cut back, but since I started writing this post, I went for a walk and gave in to my craving.
