One of my biggest vices is not saying no to food when I know my stomach is full. It's been a habit since becoming an adult, and it's gotten me into some very painful stomach aches. Also, it's a wasteful thing. Taking more than you need is wasteful and unhealthy. It's not good for me to overwhelm my stomach, and I never feel well when I do. So, I've come up with a plan.
I wanted to set up a reward system for myself, a goal that I had to reach toward. I'm competitive, so I think that this approach will work well for me. The problem I found, though, was what should the prize be? Some tasty food? No, that defeats the purpose. Some nice new nail polish? No, I don't want to be spending lots of money on anything right now. So what about a fun, tasty tea? This has potential.
I told Caleb my idea, and he suggested that, each time I reach my goal, he will make me a cup of this special tea I have from Teavana. When Caleb makes it, he puts in double the tea and a spoonful of honey. It's delicious, I love it, and it's the perfect prize for my plan.
Get a star for each time I don't overeat for lunch or dinner.
Get tasty tea when I reach 7 stars!
