This morning as I was recording the remainder of yesterday's food intake, I stopped and pondered the results. I was over (again), but, what was this odd deformity gracing my lips?...A smile? How can I smile in the face of failure?
I hadn't failed. It wasn't the picture of perfection, but, it was not close to a FAIL at all. As far as I'm concerned I could have been far more destructive and the effort I put in yesterday was a vast improvement over my old habits.
1. I didn't take seconds on the absolutely luscious ribs my children made (even at the risk of John and Kate not barbecuing ever again for the mama...I doubt that, those kids have seen me cower in fear of the BBQ).
2. I didn't snack when hubby came home from his absence. He usually power snacks when he gets home. I had oodles of cookies for prepared for him. He tends to not need a snack buddy when there is ample cookies available. I hope I remember this trick.
So as far as I am concerned I avoided a minimum of 1, 500 calories yesterday that I wouldn't have before and that my friends is success. Slow success, but, success none-the-less. Slow is still a go...
HaPpY DaNce.....2 min.= 10 calories burned ;)
