Right! I was just reading in spark articles something similar-about the differences between a diet and a healthy lifestyle. It was stuff I already know, but it is so easy to fall into that diet-mentality and beat oneself up for over-indulging a bit too much. Part of a lifestyle change is allowing those kinds of days but not letting it totally throw you off track. It is also not deeming any food as "bad" food based on calorie content, but merely exercising wisdom with reasonable portions.
However, playing the “shame-on-me” game could cause you to continue down a gluttonous path. Besides, you’ve got a month’s worth of holiday parties to attend and slinky dresses to slide into. Apply these five sensible rules to get back on a healthy eating track today.
