Ups and downs

Lost a pound since I started here, yay!
That is the good news.
In the not so great news, I caved in and had cake and ice cream yesterday. I mean, it wasn't a great choice but I don't feel too bad about it. I was starting to obsess. Everything sounded good, I was craving sugar till it was driving me to distraction, it was all I thought about! So I gave in. I bought a slice of cake at Safeway and some ice cream to go with it. I guess on the bright side I never really realized, till now, just how ridiculous the portion sizes are on those slices of cake. The best part? I couldn't finish the whole slice. :) I ended up tossing about 1/4 of it. I consider that a win. Just like the other day when I bought a chocolate bar, ate half and realized that it was just making me feel bad, and I tossed away the other half.

I am getting there. I am not making healthy choices 100% of the time, but who does? I figure that if I give in once in a while I will obsess about this kind of stuff less and as long as I am making good choices 95% of the time I'm doing well.

So breakfast this morning was an awesome smoothie with whey protein - lots of nice fruit, plenty of protein and fiber. And now I am going to go get my shoes on and walk my dog.

    stay cool babe, don't overdo it, and careful for diet rage! if you spend all your time thinking about 'dieting', you'll start bingeing.
    just learn to make healthy choices every step of the way, and remember we are hardwired for survival, so losing substantially means outwitting our brains. no easy road!

    That's right - it takes time to establish a healthy lifestyle, which is why we call it a journey! I found that themore vegies I eat, the less I crave other stuff. I do allow myself some DARK chocolate now and then, and that usually takes care of that sweet tooth. And whenever possible I choose whole grain over processed! Blessings on your journey.
