A day of Glutony

Monday, January 24, 2011

Yesterday I went overboard. I ate french toast with butter for breakfast, even went for a small brownie and a couple of Oreos. I did feel a little guilty, almost like I was cheating. However, I came to an epiphany this morning over my coffee. I can't deprive myself of the things that I like. It's not like I ate a whole package of Oreos. If I say I can't have something, it will only drive me to want to eat it more. Today is a new day to start fresh. I can't dwell on what already happened. On the bright side, I still got my workout in yesterday and I'm in my last week with the Sparkpeople 28 day boot camp. I truly feel that I am establishing a habit with exercise and food tracking and it feels awesome. I can't believe how much overall energy I have.

    Treats are absolutely fine - every now and again and in moderation. I schedule them in - for me it's not realistic to never have treats again. This is my lifestyle, not a diet. Find what works for you and go with that.

    Oh, and also - a couple of Oreos will ALWAYS have less calories than 4 or 5 or 6 etc. Perhaps once you may not have stopped at one or two (I don't know and I'm not assuming at all) so stopping at a couple is an achievement in itself.

    Definitely a great outlook to have! I know that you can do it, Julie. And if we make it up this summer for a visit, we'll have to set aside Work Out time together.

    I agree completely - a treat now and then is fine, as long as you're aware of it! If you deny yourself anything it's just asking for trouble. No point in making yourself miserable for the rest of your life!
