Okay so I am feeling some guilt of unhealthy choices the last few days!

BUT you know what? 99% of the time I choose unsweetened tea over diet soda even when I give myself permission to choose. I just don't like the way the diet soda makes me feel anymore. Now don't get me wrong there is that 1% on occasion that I want it and only it and I drink it. But it has been a year and a half that I have broken the diet drink habit!

I was hungry today after my walk and was having a little emotional issue to boot at 5 pm. I knew I would not make it till supper and decided to have 1 ounce of mozzarella ball while preparing supper but that turned to 3 oz but I tracked it. I had leftover kale and cauliflower as sides for supper but chose to eat during the mini meltdown.

Well maybe it was not so much as a meltdown as real hunger??? Only had about 600 cals early in the day and all nutritional and portioned and controlled not to mention my walk/jog was a full hour.

Stayed in control for supper as far as choices and portions go!

Then I logged it all and realized I could still have my comfort after supper snack which I traded ice cream portion for fresh hot baked sweet potato topped with 1 Tbsp coconut, slivered almonds, and nonfat plain Greek yogurt. I call that a wise choice as far as comfort food goes!

So yes, I am feeling the emotional eater in me but managed it with less than 100 cals over my limit.

Trying to stay positive without making excuses. Oh and I did 25 min of yoga stretches to stop the afternoon eating!

    emoticon You did an emoticon job today! That's what I call purposeful, educated eating! Wow, emoticon I'm not sure where you are in your "getting healthy" journey, but I'd say that is one HUGE step in the right direction. Yesterday is over and boy did you take advantage of a new day! You should be so proud of yourself! Keep it up because emoticon
