Trader Joe’s – the scene of my inner struggle. Will I buy binge food or stick to my plan?

Podcast Recap

I overcome an overwhelming compulsion to weasel out of my exercise class and ponder what’s under my weaseling-out instinct. Then I attempt to visit Trader Joe’s while hungry. Will I sabotage myself or stick to my plan? Also, iTunes comes through and my husband surprises me in an emotional way.

    Are you a mind reader?!?!?! I have never called it that but I’m forever weaseling out of things I know I should do for better health.
