Lately I've been really trying to keep the peace between me and my arch enemy : Food! On top of being a compulsive eater/binge eater i also deal with some depression at times. It comes and goes but i keep it in check with diet and exercise.
Yesterday i dipped my toes in the cookie pool - but i didn't go swimming. I made homemade from-the-box chocolate chip cookies 'for the kids' and ended up eating a few. Later my mom stopped by with some McDonald's and I gotta tell ya, it was good. Further into the evening I had 3 beers while cheering on my favorite bb team. (DH at work, kids asleep and i was completely content with being by myself in the living room,lol)
So, I guess my point to all this is I counted every last calorie yesterday and the day ended at a respectable amount (an amount discovered through trial and error) and there was no overwhelming sadness and regret when i woke up. Of course i knew i had to balance yesterdays decisions with a good workout today & good eating. I just finished a great full body weight lifting workout followed by a fun step aerobics routine. It was 99 mins total and 702 calories burned..that's done! Now time to focus on my eating for today and tomorrow morning i can pat myself on the back =)
