A Small Victory

Sunday, May 15, 2011

I just finished recording the last of the food I ate last night at a birthday party. I exceeded my calories for the day by a couple of hundred. WOOHOO!!!!!

I have not lost my mind, lol. I am just thrilled, thrilled, thrilled, that despite what I said above, I had a good day yesterday (and the day before that, too, as a matter of fact). How can that be?

For me, it is simple. Everything I ate yesterday was eaten consciously. I did not graze mindlessly. I had a little of this and a little of that, and I know I ate more than I should have, but the amount of calories I eat is, at this juncture, less important to me than the fact that I am now back into the zone of consciousness. I don't love the fact that I exceeded my generous calorie count for the day, but I'll take conscious eating over what had been happening any time.

Have a Sparky day!

    As WELL as you SHOULD be EXCITED !!! Hey as a SPIRITED UNDER DOG I a ALWAYS happy to read of a memember hitting a personal goal or something that makes them say "AHHHHHH I GOT IT !" This is clearly a I GOT IT moment !! You did extremely WELL !! That is something to be VERY PROUD OF !!!!

    Remember this is a LIFESTYLE change we are in,,, SP knows we are going to have days we are going to go over,,,,and we CELEBRATE those days,,,,of course we don't want them OFTEN, but occassionally they WILL HAPPEN. So thats the AH HA difference between SP and a DIET. On the DIET your PUNISHED If you go over,,made to feel as If you've done something WRONG !! BUT NOT on SP !!! We KNOW we are ALL going to do this. It's a LIFESTYLE change and in LIFE we are going to DO this. GLad you enjoyed the day.

    The key words here being "conscious" and "in control". We deserve the right to "go over" as we see fit. It's the seeing fit that is the key. You may have had a bigger "ahh haa" than you even realize.

    Well done, my friend.

    That is a good way to look at it. I understand why you are excited, it's because you were in control the entire time. Well done.
