Yesterday my day looked like this:
So obviously I deserved a treat. The hardest thing about this diet and "get fit" thing I'm trying to do is to change my attitude towards food. Previously a "treat" would have been a big bowl of pasta followed by ice cream, aka a diet killer. However last night I treated myself with a steak and a salad. The treat came in the form of a loaded baked potato. Celebratory potato. It was delicious. Not 100% diet friendly, but like my doctor told me sometimes you have to feed the soul. Things that aren't diet friendly can still be enjoyed, just in limited quantities. Besides, what fun is life if you don't get to have your favorite things from time to time.
