I like to track my day's food first thing in the morning or as soon as I know what I'm eating for meals. That way I know how much is left for a snack in the evening. I love to budget my calories and fat for a snack during my downtime in the evening. It makes it feel like a splurge even though it fits perfectly into my day's plan!

When you decide to get back on track first realize that this is not a diet but a way of life. Treat your home and your body as a shrine. No junk in the house no junk in your system. Outside of your home you can reward yourself for treating your body and house with love and treat yourself to a decadent sweet or drink. Good habits start at home. You are the keeper, provider and teacher to others.43
If you have junk food in the house collect it in a box, give it to a shelter, or better yet throw it away/,
I don't taste until I track! I put this rule in place for myself because skipping once is a slippery slope. And by making sure my food is logged before I indulge, I can see how much my choice will "cost" me and make a last minute change if necessary!
I've ditched food at the last minute that should have never made it to my plate because I tracked it first :)
