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.
