It's funny how when I'm consciously eating healthy and balanced meals there are days when I have a hard time coming up with enough calories. Today was one of those days. How did I resolve the issue this time? Ice cream. One half-cup serving of strawberry ice cream left over from my nephew's birthday dinner. It is delicious. I think I enjoy it more now than I would have in the past. Since staring my diet back in January, I rarely have desserts, but I don't deny myself completely. I think that's one key for me to succeed. I don't feel deprived, because I'm eating food that is healthy, but that I also enjoy. And on occasion, that includes a treat or dessert. And I know it's working because I have lost 25 pounds so far (as of my weigh-in this morning).
Question of the day: When you're in the mood for a treat, what do you usually go for?
I enjoy a lot of different things, but most often it's something chocolate.
