Yesterday I made some bad eating choices. I made the choice to order chicken fingers instead of soup/salad. I made the choice to clear my plate. And I made the choice to go way over my allotment for calories.
Then, this morning, I had my Kashi cereal for breakfast, and went to enter it into the tracker. It is such a delightful feeling to look at that blank food tracker and see that it is a whole new day! The bad choices are behind me, and I have a whole new set of choices to make today. It is up to me how I approach them.
I made the choice to have my normal light breakfast, and not add on snacks in the middle of the morning. I decided to brush my teeth again at 10:00 am so I am not tempted to eat again until my minty-freshness subsides closer to lunchtime.
It is still early, and I know I will be faced with a lot more choices throughout the day today. I hope that by writing this, I remind myself that everything is a choice and that it is up to me whether or not those choices are good or bad.
