So I was sitting here getting ready to beat myself up for eating what I shouldn't. Ready to drown in guilt and self loathing over food again. Then I stopped, and simply held myself accountable by typing what I'd eaten into my food tracker... and I gained some major perspective.
My big sin ? Half of a small piece of cheesecake made with fresh fruit and fat free topping and ONE chocolate chip cookie with ice-water instead of milk. So did I consume late-night calories I didn't need ? Absolutely. But even in my moment of indulgence I practiced portion control and took the low-fat and low-calorie options where I could. It was second nature. I think I can be proud of that. I obviously can't have sugary snacks every night and still meet my goals, but what happened tonight, when brought into perspective, actually represents real and lasting progress...So YAY ME !!!
