Yeah. I had Ice Cream tonight. A regular scoop. There was probably 1.5 cups on that cone...LOADS of calories. BUT, I had enough calories that, even though I thought it would take me WAY over the top, it didn't. I didn't plan on Ice Cream. My husband suggested it and me, being me and thinking Ice Cream makes EVERYTHING better, even if nothing is wrong, said yes. And ate it without guilt even though I though it might mean too many calories today. And now I can be really happy knowing I didn't "blow it". Doesn't get any better than that.
Last night I turned down the chance at a chocolate bar. For some that might not be much...for me, it isn't so much the chocolate as the sweetness...and I turned it down anyway. That is a step in the right direction. I CAN do it when I choose to.
Where am I going with this blog? I don't know. lol. I guess I am just glad that, even though I didn't give it a second thought, I didn't mess up, either. I know, I could start over again tomorrow and do better, but that is exactly why I am the size I am to begin with...because there is always tomorrow...but I never do any better. At least not enough to make a difference. And tonight, I don't have to worry about that. :)
I think this calorie counting is going to work for me. I am going to ask my husband to give me a bit more notice about going out for Ice Cream, though. I would like to be able to "budget" my calories rather than eat and hope for the best.
