Time to re-group from overeating on ice cream yesterday. I stopped because the carton was empty. I knew better but said I would only have a couple of spoonfuls. And it wasn't even a favorite flavor. Bad behavior.
And such behavior taints my mind and makes me struggle against thoughts...."look at you now....you went ahead and wrecked your weight loss...you can never beat this...."
Tendencies in me like this are why I made myself join the Inbetween Challenge, as I felt it offered me necessary structure to not backslide before the Fall Challenge. Binge snacking was and still is my toughest habit to gain control over. If I had been back to tracking my daily foods throughout the day, would I have not done what I did with that ice cream? I want to blame DH for bringing it into the house....still, the decision to grab a spoon was mine and I have to take ownership for it.
Mental check: Move on quickly. New day. New opportunity. Seize the day.
Get the fitness in.....that can only help the situation. Get back into routine as quickly as possible.
Track the calories for the day. Yes, I well know what I am eating, for I've been at this journey for too long. No excuses....Just do it.
Grand daughter time.....she will help keep me on the straight and narrow today, as I never eat poorly when she is here with us.
Early rise....time to walk before grand daughter arrives.
Walk and ponder the last 8 weeks of success over the Summer Challenge to put myself back in a positive place.
Execute food plan and track my foods over the day.

106 fitness minutes. Forgot to wear my SPAT. Darn....hate when that happens.
Ate a super healthy breakfast.
