Yesterday was a good day at the gym; and, it was a good eating day too. I was under my minimum, just a smidge. Tonight is tacos, homemade. I may go over my minimum a little bit but I definitely won't max it out. I caved in and had a very tiny piece of chocolate cake leftover from my daughter's birthday. I was happy with just a little piece and didn't want more after; however, if I kept myself from having just that tiny piece...then I would have been craving a far bigger piece. I really believe it's okay to have a little piece of something now and then. It's really about portion control and not over indulging. Hell, there's plenty of smaller/thinner people that are healthy who also indulge in a piece of cake now and again! It seems unhealthy to put a big red X on any kind of food that I used to like but is high in calories. I'd rather take a nibble when I want some then start having these cravings for the food. Does that make sense? I think in my case, it will make it less likely that I'll fall into the same pattern of eating that made me overweight---if I don't cut myself off from everything and end up bored and miserable with the food I'm eating.
