This comment I made at the end of my nutrition tracker today:

Wait a minute! I thought I "blew it". I was ready to blow off the rest of my day when I looked at the damage report here on my tracker. My carbs are over 200. I knew by mid afternoon I would not make my 135 protein, less than 165 carb and around 30-60 fat gram "perfection". But this is NOT about perfection. It is what I can do consistently day in and day out. DS brought home ice cream It's been in the freezer for 24 hours. Ice cream is a temptation. I succombed to 1.5 cups. There was a time that I would have eaten more. I'm good with protein for today. I noticed that I did not "crave" the ice cream like in the past. In fact, I think the 3 ODWALLA protein drinks that I bought on sale and tried to drink over the last 24 hours weakened by resolve. Just a thought. Also, I think I was EXXPECTING more craving. I asked DS to serve me half cup only of ice cream--which he did. I went back for 1 more cup.

It happened, it's over--now back to the y!

    Great comment!

    We will always succumb at some point, it's all about how you think about it. And you've got the right attitude (as long as you stay out of the ice cream today!).

    Ice cream is my FAVORITE treat!

    I've been buying the 6oz. ice cream cups to have on occasion. There are a few brands and flavors. Look around to see who has your favorite.
