Just discovered a great tip that is a win-win situation. I was in the restroom washing my hands and some person had left a bottle of rather nice smelling hand lotion for all to use. So I tried it out.
Another staff member had recently been to Ocean City, MD and brought back caramel corn from Fishers. I had given into this temptation several times since the beginning of the week (heck it’s only Wednesday!) and was feeling guilty about eating it and more importantly about not tracking it.
Before I hit restroom the caramel corn monster was calling my name. However, once I put that nice smelling hand lotion on I realized I couldn’t dip into the caramel corn bucket. Win-Win! Not only are my hands softer but I wasn’t able to give into that temptation. I wonder why I hadn’t thought of this before. Neat trick to keep yourself from eating something that requires you picking it up with your hands – put lotion on before hand and you won’t pick it up (because no matter how good it smells I don’t think you want your caramel corn, brownie, cookie, etc. to taste like hand lotion).
Another win-win — while looking up the links to put in this post I found the nutritional information for the caramel corn. I am now tracking what I ate this morning so at least part of my guilt is absolved 🙂
