I fell off the wagon....

and it felt good. I've done so well for the past 4 days on my new eating healthier kick that I treated myself to an ice cream treat at Sonic last night. One thing I do like about dieting/eating healthier is that you appreciate those little treats so much more. Last week when I was scarfing down cinnamon rolls, tres leches cake, chocolate chip cookies, and Betty Crocker chocolate icing out of the tub I wasn't really appreciating those treats. At least not in the same way that I do when I haven't had anything sugary in a few days. I feel the same way about eating out. When we eat out all the time I quit enjoying it as much.

I am back up on the wagon today, a new woman. I have my black coffee and a banana for breakfast.

I LOVE Sonic! That was one of the things I really missed while I lived in Rhode Island...No Sonics up there!

And I know what you mean about really appreciating the treats. I always take one day off a week from strict healthy eating. (Usually over the weekend) I don't go wild, but I let myself indulge a little.

Keep up the good work!

I must admit I've never been to Sonic. I've never even seen one. However, I do know what you mean about appreciating treats more after you don't have them for awhile. *Sigh* I really miss Doritos.
