So yesterday I did OK on my diet. I went over by 1,000 calories. Many of you are probably thinking um.... Jasmine? Going over by 1,000 is not OK, it's more like TERRIBLE. haha well at first I thought so too. I was so mad at myself. Why did I eat 800 calories worth of pistachios? What was I thinking? Peanut butter? I know that's my trigger food! But then I stopped myself and noticed something. Yes, I ate a lot yesterday! but if you can believe it, I used to go over my calories by SO much more. I used to down an entire jar of peanut butter (I'm an emotional eater). Limiting myself to four tbs of peanut butter was a success for me! Also, not pigging out after my binge was another victory. In the past I would be great with my diet. Then the day would come where I would slip and eat a ton of something that didn't fit into my diet plan. And you know what I would do? I would throw the entire program out the window. I would beat myself up and say you BLEW it, might as well make this a mess up day. and then i would eat EVERYTHING bad in sight probably blowing my calories up towards 5,000. By tracking what I ate and by patting myself on the back for not doing worse, I controlled myself. My whole attitude is better! Heck, I feel like yesterday was one of my best days on spark people thus far. I worked out and I didn't go CRAZY. I'm excited to do even better today!!
