So today i decided that I would reward myself in a rather unhealthy matter. I pretty much ate what ever I wanted. I know not the smartest move in my book, but I have decided I will not do that every time. I am currently working on reward goals that don't include a binge eating situation. I will post that later. For now I leave with this blog as a reminder to myself that I ...
