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!
