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!
