    Stupid voice inside my head is telling me today that I need to go to the vending machine down the hall and buy some potato chips! To foil the voice, I told my office mate, "I keep thinking about potato chips." He quickly reached into his desk drawer and pulled out two snack bags, one of potato chips and one of some kind of whole wheat cheese flavored crispy snacks. "Here have one of these! This one says right on the bag that it's a healthy snack!"

    I asked him to read the nutritional information from the back of the bags to me. Well, that put an end to the evil snack thoughts I was having really quickly. 29 grams of carbs in one ugly little snack. It's a good strategy and I'll try it again. I asked him to always make sure he has some snacks in his drawer so I can get him to read the info. off the back to me. He's a good guy. LOL!

      Nothing like a reality check from the back of a package. PB has given me a whole new take on labels.

      Maybe when he eats one of those bags of carbs, he could give you the empty bag to store in your desk just in case he's not around and you need to review it!

          Not a bad idea! He was so sincere, too.

              I am the lizard king

              I call my inner voice Lizard Brain. It never wants me to succeed. It's always negative. It never wants me to have fun. It's always trying to talk me out of doing things that are good for me. For the past few years, when it tells me to do something like skipping my tai chi class or whatever, I say to myself, "Aw, it's just the Lizard Brain, don't listen to it." I also have positive mantras like "life rewards action" and "feeling healthy and looking good is way better than _____________." I don't always win, but most of the time I do!

                Lizard Brain! I love it. I need to find a derogatory name for the negative voice I hear once in a while. Fortunately, it only tells me to eat bad things. I never listen to it, but it's irritating nonetheless. Maybe Inner Fatso or something. Otherwise, I also have a postive inner voice, which I just consider to be me. I don't want to own up to the negative one.
