Isn't it ironic?

I've been wrestling in my mind a bit with deciding if I should keep giving up soda/flavored drinks. I still think they are not good for you, but I really don't drink them often at all, is it worth it to completely deprive myself?

Tonight hubby and I ran to the grocery store to pick up a few incidentals: kitty litter, milk, bread, bananas, etc. We checked out, and loaded the groceries in our car. Someone had left their cart in the middle of the parking lot, right next to the cart corral, which is a minor (slash major) pet peeve of Justin's. He took both our carts, maneuvered them both to the corral, and found something. Underneath one of the carts in front of his was a 24 pack of Diet Coke. Someone had obviously bought it and forgotten it was sitting on the bottom of their cart when they loaded up their groceries. He picked it up (is that bad?), loaded it in the car, and now it's sitting in our kitchen.

So the problem is that I now have a 24 pack of Diet Coke in my kitchen. What do I do? I have cheated once or twice lately with my non-diet-coking, which is bad I know. But I won't lie about it. I'm definitely not perfect.

Anyway, I just thought it was ironic. Maybe it's someone telling me I don't need to worry about that so much, that there are bigger fish to fry right now. Maybe it's the devil tempting me.

Maybe it's just ironic.

I think it's better to not deprive you don't end up binging later. Thanks to Intuitive Eating, I've let myself think that I can eat whatever I want, whenever I want. I actually eat much healthier when I know it's not 'forbidden fruit'.

I agree with megan. Once I know something is forbidden, I crave it terribly. When its available, I can usually take it or leave it. But I am not one to advise you on the diet coke issue! :) Maybe a regular coke is a better choice?
