The lovely Ruthie posted a great comment on a recent post about superpowers and expectation that made me think:
"... you should figure our your kryptonite and avoid it like the plague! :)"YES! Kryptonite - we all have something in our lives that makes us powerless against it. Maybe it's a trigger food or the lure of party platters. Maybe it's waiting too late to eat a meal and then chowing down like a hungry gorilla or drinking too much and throwing caution to the wind when you decide you're hungry (I'm convinced this is why McDonald's still exists!)
Mine is the latter. If I have more than one glass of wine, my willpower goes the way of the Dodo. Any greasy, fatty foods in site are suddenly on my radar and I have to consumer them. NOW! Sober Sarah can let the craving pass, but slightly above the legal limit Sarah is ready to party - with cake.
My strategy of dealing with this is two fold: 1) Don't drink so much! and 2) Go into the situation full. If I eat a healthy meal beforehand, I can usually pass on the tater tots at the bar later on, but if I had alcohol on an emptyish stomach before ordering food, it's a guaranteed disaster.
What's your Kryptonite? What's your strategy to avoid it?
