Went grocery shopping last night. I felt that I made a number of wise decisions. Got healthier versions of snacking foods, but did succumb to nachos and dip (salsa, cream cheese, cheddar cheese, chopped peppers, tomatoes and onions). The expiry date said it was good for an entire week and I decided that it would be a nice quick snack to take a few bites of during the week. I ate the whole thing, in one sitting. Considering it was a store-made product I just guessed at what I had - but am still convinced I was worse than what I logged.
After eating the ENTIRE dish of nachos and dip I decided what better way to polish off an evening of bad habits then with a couple of home-made double-chocolate chip cookies. Funny thing happened though. I wasn't able to finish the cookies. I had maybe 3/4 of one and my body just said "nope.... no more." and for the first time that I can remember, possibly ever, I threw the remainder of the cookie(s) away.
Instead of allowing myself to go into a downward spiral over my bad choice (nachos) I am trying to focus on the small victory of not finishing the cookie(s). It's time to start building myself up and stop tearing myself down.
I am worthy of a better and healthier life.
