Gave myself "permission".....
Monday, September 30, 2013
On this journey I have used "everything is moderation" as a way of thinking - it works for me. Yesterday I gave myself permission to think out of that box.
I planned (tracked) for a high calorie day - right at the top of my maintenance range.
Had a taste for a pumpkin square so I took a ride to what used to be my favorite bakery. They didn't have the pumpkin squares so I settled for a cinnamon roll with frosting and nuts on top. As my mid morning snack I cut the said roll in half and enjoyed every bite. Went on with my "rest" day and later in the evening I figured I already tracked the roll so why not finish it. So, I did - the second half just wasn't as delightful as the first.
I'm thinking my "everything in moderation" thoughts kicked in (after I ate the second half)..LOL I have no regrets about the "permission" type of day, but I do know it will be along time before I might try it again. My mind and body are just so in tune with a healthier eating (and moderation) way of eating.....so I guess thinking out of the box should be taken lightly and with healthier food picks.
Thanks for stopping by and have a marvelous Monday. ((HUGS))
