Taking things moment to moment and baking substitutions?

Motivational Quote of the Day: "At any given moment, you have the power to say, 'This is not how the story is going to end'." From the Motivational Spark Pages.
I just found this quote and I love it!!! If I am unhappy with a choice I have made, I know I have the power to change things for the better with my next choice. This may be at the next bite of food, or the next meal or my next move at the gym. I like to take things moment to moment, not necessarily day to day. Hey, one day can be long and if I end up having a binge, I'd rather binge at one meal, not all day long like I have in the past.
So, I have a bean-barley soup simmering on the stove--this is the first time I have really ever made something like this before!!!! I'll have to let you know how it turns out! I got the receipe from Trader Joes. I also baked cookies today, but substitued the sugar for splenda--not to different from the original, but I can taste that chemical after taste from the splenda brown sugar. I think for me I just need to make the real version of things in this instance. More calories, yes, but less chemicals. What do you guys think? Does anyone have any other suggesions for substitutes in baking cookies, etc.?
I'd love to hear about any suggestions!
Hope everyone is having a beautiful weekend!
