Everyone knows that when you track, you realize how questionable seemingly innocent habits really are. But the other side of tracking is that it can show you when it's not over yet. And that's a reason to celebrate.
Tracking shows you how possible it is to keep on track. I went out to eat with my sister and my dad today. We went to this spectacular pizza place and got a large pizza to share. We didn't finish, but I did my best to help us try. I had four slices! They were small slices, but still! I could have just had two, or three.
The total came out to 720 calories for the escapade. Pretty bad. But I had a small breakfast. And I can have a small, nice dinner and stay within my high-end target of 1550. And the pizza did have lots of fresh veggies (along with the oil and cheese, of course). So if I'm careful today, I don't have to fall off the wagon at all. That's great to know. There's no reason either to starve myself for the rest of the day, or have a crazy dinner because all's lost for the day.
