When I started sparkpeople and tracked my nutrition I would have a melt down when I went over my calorie count. Then I would have a food fest and triple my calories feeling guilty afterwards. It was such a vicious circle, but the cycle has been broken! Today I went over by 100 calories, the first time since December. I didn't have a melt down. I didn't throw a food party and I didn't feel one shred of guilt. Instead I gave myself permission to and I told self it was ok. It feels so good to finally break the cycle of guilt, self loathing and hate. I know tomorrow the horse will be waiting and I'll get in the saddle and ride off into a day filled with healthy eating and calorie balances.
