This morning I logged all of my food for the day. Planned it all. Stayed within all of my ranges. Even on the low end of my calorie range! And that's even with having a piece of Pizza Hut pizza and some chips for lunch. I felt really good about my choices and felt confident that I would be successful!
..... Then I got off work, errands didn't go the way I planned, got home and had a disagreement with my daughter, frustrated with too many animals in my house, stress and feelings of being overwhelmed started to take over.... Taco Bell and rum and coke was sounding really good... but it would have ruined my carefully planned menu plan for the day. Normally I would say oh well and cave in... but NOT TODAY!!!
I ate the dinner that I had planned, It was delicious and I feel like a winner. The only things I changed was I had salsa on my salad instead of olive oil and vinegar. And I put some salsa on my black beans, too. And I added a glass of ice tea. I am full, satisfied and very happy with myself! An AMAZING dinner for less than 500 calories and the salsa filled the craving to splurge! So, this is what success feels like! I am happy!!!
