Weightless Wednesday – A Little Indulgence and I Can’t See My Feet….

 

…and no, it’s not because of my weight!  That title alone proves that grammar is important, because one part of the phrase has absolutely nothing to do with the other.

I woke up this morning and can’t move my neck.  Tried stepping on the scale, but can’t actually turn my head enough to see the number on the scale, so no weigh-in this morning :-(  Since a workout was also out of the question, it was on to bigger and better things, breakfast!

Had a smoothie and a small vanilla-mint latte.  My milk frother is on the fritz, and it will be 3 business days before the next one arrives, so didn’t bother taking a pic.  This got me thinking about how little indulgences fit into a healthy diet.

In my personal experience, if I want something, if I really crave it, I better eat it.  If I try to avoid what I am craving, I will inadvertently overdo it on “healthy” foods, each one leaving me unsatisfied.  I will eat just for the sake of trying to fill that void.  And in the end, I will eat the food I was craving to begin with (and probably in greater abundance now that I’ve also stuffed myself with different foods and reason that I’ve ruined the calorie count for the day already, so why not go all out?)

I’ve learned that if I eat a little taste of what I am craving, and then move on to the healthier choices if I’m still hungry, I won’t overdo it.  I eat much less, and I am satisfied.  Sometimes our bodies crave things because there is something in the food that our body needs at that moment.  Other times it is for comfort, or joy.  We can’t expect to ignore these calls and succeed on any nutrition path.  So go ahead, indulge.  Just do it in balance!

Warmest regards,
