Yesterday started the competition with my husband- we both did a GREAT job! I even made it the entire day without sugar or flour! In those past 24 hours, I realized something. What you can’t have, you want! Every commercial… Dunkin Doughnuts, ice cream, Papa John’s! Seriously- stuff I don’t even normally want… I was now lusting after. What is that all about?
When you create a taboo in your life, it seems as though you then want it even more and more often! Now is the same thing true for the opposite scenario? If I lived in Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory, would I then NEVER want sweets? That’s doubtful… but how is it possible to make these desires work in my favor? Even better, how do I make the things that I want to do, but kinda dread doing become a major desire in my life? I discovered that with working out, the more often one does it, the more you want to do it, but the minute you stop- you are happy to sit on the couch forever. Sex is tricky. My husband and I want to have a baby, so clearly the more sex we have the better our odds. Funny thing is, the minute you look at sex that way, it becomes a job and you no longer want it. WHAT? Not fair!
Or is it all about advertising? My mind wasn’t really thinking about Dunkin’ Doughnuts (really they are not my favorite thing) but the commercial seduced me. I want my yoga class to seduce me like I was a single, divorced woman and yoga was my sexy, wealthy dream man. I guess as far as the baby making goes… I need to do my own advertising. Pump up the seduction quality in my life… maybe that will be the incentive to get to yoga class in order to show off my new bod- to seduce my husband to make the baby. It’s worth a try!
