Because of the show coming to and end we went and treated ourselves to a little bit of carbs this morning. We would see donuts all over the country, but using all my will power, would often not participate in their tasty trouble. This morning in honor of our final weekend we went and got some coffee and had some donuts and it was great.
I share this with you because I think that there is two parts to eating well and healthy. One is to make good choices and to be aware of what you are putting in your body and it's effects on you, but the other is to be able to enjoy food they way we should. That doesn't mean over eating, or going crazy with the carbs every other day, it means taking the time to say, "I am doing pretty good and I can enjoy myself today." This is a lesson I am constantly relearning at this phase in my diet. I often times have such a fear that after losing all my weight that I will fall off the wagon and gain it all back that I forget how far I have come. Its important to know that We are in control of what we eat.
All that to say, yeah, I had some carbs today, and I earned them. Tomorrow, we keep moving forward.
