Vices

What is willpower? Is it the ability to drag yourself out of the bed at 2am to give another feeding? Is it going out into the 20 degree weather looking for the dog when no one else will? Is it coming home from an exhausting day to cook dinner for your family when you really just want to drive through McDonalds? Apparently not. Apparently, willpower is the power to restrain yourself from doing something. And, apparently, I have none because I REALLY want that chocolate, glazed donut my kids are eating. Yes, I'm venting. Is there something wrong with me that medication can fix? Psychiatrist? Hypnotics? R has the metabolism of a 15 year old boy and eats any and everything he wants. After I told him I was dieting, he wants to order chinese! Uggh! Anyway, as I begged him to eat the last chocolate donut this morning so that I wouldn't be tempted (I only bought 3 so that I wouldn't have one,) he lectured me on willpower. Do I really lack that much willpower? Yes, I have a hard time dragging myself out of the bed to workout, but I get up all those other times when no one else will. Doesn't that count for something? Now, that I've vented, I feel better. Thanks, bloggers:) Please share vices!!!! Misery loves company :)
