1. control of one's impulses and actions; self-control.
Yesterday was again day one which I had failed. I had made it till 6:30pm where I then indulged in chocolate from the FreshMarket followed by ice cream topped with m&m's, hot fudge and nutella.
Another act lacking self control occurred yesterday was when I thought I needed a pair of winter boots. I gave in to some BCBG's. On impulse, my hands reached for these boots. I saw a glow around them as the surrounding background was blurred. I felt the soft leather of these eye rendering pull-on boots and abruptly grabbed them off the shelf. The lining stitch was clean and uninterrupted and with the round toe and 4-1/4" stacked cone heel they screamed keep me.
Yes, sometimes, I do lack repression of thy self.
