When bad is good

With the holidays always comes temptation, and I have fallen prey to it this week. This week I have cheated a lot! However, instead of being hard on myself I took a look back at the rest of this year.

Wednesday I had two hand fulls of M&Ms and two of popcorn plus 3 cookies, Thursday I had 1 hand full each of M&M's and popcorn plus 5 cookies (spaced out over the day), and Friday I had 2 cookies and a breaded chicken sand which. The rest of those days were filled with fruit, vegetables, and lean protein.

Two or months ago on a given day I might have eaten three meal of fast food and filled the hours in between with eating more than all of the food above together. I would still like to improve my diet by eating less processed foods, but overall I think I am doing better. my efforts at moderation are much better. In fact, I can't think of the last time I even had fast food. 

Still doing a good bit of thinking and planning about life and my next year, but i can rest assured that as I sit around pondering this weekend I won't be doing it with a box of swiss rolls!

I like that attitude ... everything is a gift ... it all depends on how you use it!

Indeed you are doing better. Putting fast food in the rear view mirror forever is just a brilliant decision we all should make. Ok, that is being a bit hard maybe; say 1 drive thru visit every other year.

You are doing awesome for sure. I think smaller steps work better than big steps as far as diet. This time of year is so tough for me, because all of my favorite things are bad. I only go to Subway for fast food now. At least it is a little healthier than say, McD's or whatever.

Kudos for no fast food! Keep looking at how far you've come, because you're only going to get better!
