Week 3 of walk/jog DONE! & having a comfortable relationship with food.

I am DONE week 3 of the walk/jog program!! yeah!
On a different note, I was thinking today about food. Yes, surprise lol! I found myself having negative thoughts about eating some food with some students (a think slice of cake- it was seriously think, since the kids got most of it and some icing etc), Anyway, I was enjoying myself having fun in the kitchen with students sampling the dip, frosting etc as we made the stuff and later I felt guilty. And was wondering how to track it. Then I thought to myself- hey! Wait a second. Relax.
I don't do this every day, I was having fun. I was't sitting eating it by myself or in secret or overeating, but having some tasting as we cooked/prepared with some students. It is NORMAL eating. I am so used to looking at food in a dark light, that I forget that there IS this good relationship. So what if I cannot keep track EXACTLY of what I ate. I could estimate and that is that. Instead of beating myself over it and over-thinking it- THAT is unhealthy.
