Yesterday we went to our County Fair and we all KNOW that a FAIR is not healthy-eating friendly! Before SP, I would bemoan all the food I COULDN'T eat, but I had purposed beforehand that I would have ONE thing: a chocolate ice cream cone from our local dairy. I brought all the rest of the food for my kids and me to eat. I THOROUGHLY enjoyed my splurge and didn't feel for ONE minute that I was cheating on my diet because I'm NOT on a diet but a journey towards healthier lifestyle.
My ice cream cone [single dip] I figured was about 300 calories and 10 grams of fat which I calculated on my food tracker.

Most people hate having to weigh and measure their food portions. To save time, get a plate that has three section in it. The largest section should be for your salad/veggies serving, one of the smaller ones is for your protein serving and the other one is for your carbs/starches.
No fair piling on the food though it has to fit inside the section neatly
