I missed writing an accountability check-in yesterday, so I'll do it now.
My husband and I attended an important event last night and didn't get home until late. I was hungry, very hungry on the drive home. I contemplated the ice cream in the freezer but chose instead to have a more benign splurge - two pieces of whole grain toast, spread with a little butter and honey. It was good. And I felt satisfied afterwards though a little guilty.
When I tried to decide if I was going to splurge or not, I thought about just going to bed hungry...that I'd be glad I did in the morning. And sometimes, that's just what I need to do, but last night, the success for me was choosing a smaller splurge instead of an all-out ice cream pig-out. Instead of being hard on myself, I'll take that success and build on it.
