Maybe I’m finally starting to get my head on straight again. After a Sunday and Monday of not-always-great choices, I put my foot down.
That’s right: I was standing in front of the vending machine at work. I’d walked in to get one of those cherry-cheese danishes for $1, because that’s what sounded good. (That, and I was in one of those “I blew it — might as well keep eating” moods.)
But as I stood there, something inside me rebelled — in a good way. I heard a little voice say, “Wait a minute. Do you really want that?”
I had to admit, I didn’t. I’d already consumed two hot fudge sundaes and assorted other junk (read: giant portion of homemade nachos) during my Sunday/Monday morning with the Boyfriend.
So I got myself the Snackwells sandwich cookies instead. Admittedly still not a fantastic choice, but better than a danish or a Butterfinger bar, for sure.
One choice at a time, folks. Chalk this one up in the win column.
P.S. Look for Project Food Journal to return tomorrow. I think I still have all the pictures from Friday and Saturday (but not Sunday or Monday).
