I don't feel guilty...

Friday, July 15, 2011

Someone brought in a tub...yes TUB...of sinful treats to my office today (TRACY!!!!!) and I promptly took them off my desk & set them back in the dining area. Problem solved? Not quite. I knew they were back there. I just couldn't STOP knowing...so I went & checked out the serving size & calories. 210 calories didn't seem like that big of a deal. So why did I feel the pangs of guilt?

Deliciousness doesn't HAVE to make me feel guilty! I decided RIGHT THERE that I would take a serving (two pieces) & eat one piece at breakfast & one at lunch. It makes the tastiness last longer...and spreads out those calories a little bit too :) Tracking my food helps me see and be mindful of what I'm eating. Plus it lets me fit in a treat or two.

    I have a bag of Dark Chocolate Lindor Truffles in my cupboard right now and if between now and then I crave chocolate, I give my permission to have one, 1/3 of a serving=70 calories, and I savor the rich dark chocolate melting in my mouth. Before I may have eaten a 1/2 bag throughout the day, but I wouldn't have enjoyed it as I do this one little treat when I really can't fight the cravings off. I like the fact you saved one for later-great control and willpower. Doesn't that feel good?

    Good job on enjoying a treat with limitations. You don;t have to say no to treats, just use moderation.

    I think it's good to have those treats once in a while. You found a way to get that in and stay within your goal. WAY TO GO!
