Crankypants can still make good choices

Been kind of cranky today, lots of hormones, yep.
Tracked my nutrition and realized I needed to eat a big dinner RIGHT NOW. Maybe some of the cranky was from low blood sugar....
But I'm cranky, so I'm contrary, so I ate a small dinner. Then I remembered the treats in the freezer.
Well, they're low fat frozen yogurt sandwiches, and I don't even need to feel guilty because I have plenty of calories left in my daily allotment. So I ate one. Okay, I scarfed one down like a starving mongrel dog.
Then I entered it in the tracker. Then realized I could eat another one! Woo hoo, right? Right?
When I bought those treats, I knew I was flirting with danger. If I avoid sweets, I can stay on track. I love healthy food and can cook up some delicious, nutritious meals, no problem. But sweets have been something I used in order to escape. I used them to perk myself up when I felt down. And guess what? I was about to do it again. So I chose not to.
WOO HOO! For reals.
I still need to eat some more calories tonight, but you know what? That's nothing to be cranky about.
