..and do it and be happy!
Today i wanted homemade chocolate chip cookies.
I dithered about looking at how to healthify the recipe and lower the calories.
And then I decided I'd rather make the real deal, calories, fat and all.
And I thought, "Uh-oh, what if this tips me over and I overeat and then give up on healthy eating and weightloss?"
But then I realised I had the choice: I could choose to log my cookie eating and still stay on track.
Could i do that? Could I really do it??
Turns out, YES!
I don't feel deprived and yet I haven't "ruined everything".
I just logged my cookie for what it was worth, 200cal as it happens.
It's all part of life. And that's the key. For "this" to work, for my eating habits to be healthy it has to be part of real life.
And it is!
p.s. I did the 1st workout of the Firm Express. It was good. Perhaps still a bit tricky bc I don't know the choreography yet but well worth while. I burned 240cal in 20min. Don't mind if I do, thank you!
