Maintenance is HARD!! but Sp makes it doable
Monday, May 20, 2013
There is nothing like a warm California day to make you want a pint of ice cream. And oh boy this weekend I wanted it. During past summers when I was still losing I removed ice cream from my diet because I knew I had no self control once I got started.
But now I'm in maintenance mode and the weather is gorgeous. I walked over 13000 steps each day this weekend in temps in the high 70's and there seems to be a Baskin Robbins on every block. I just couldn't walk on by like I could when I was in weight losing mode. There is only so long this denial thing can work. And SparkPeople has taught us you don't help yourself by denying your favorite foods.
And SparkPeople also teaches us portion control is key. So I walked right in to BRs and ordered my Peanut Butter and Chocolate ..... Kiddie cone and savored every bite. It did the trick. Only 200 calories, not so hard to work off and oh man it tastes so good!!
