"You can be smart and happy or stupid and miserable. . .
it's your choice" - Gordon B. Hinckley
My friend had this posted on her facebook page this morning. I thought it rather appropriate because I had a bit of a naughty dinner last night.
I got out of my rehearsal last night at 8:30 and I was starving!! My husband wasn't going to be home until late and I really didn't feel like cooking so I started looking for a place to eat. The restaurants kept changing in my head. Oooo! I could go Greek! Or I could have Costa Vida...the possibilities were endless! Except not really because everything was closed by the time I got there. :( BOOOOOO! I went to Smash Burger because they were open and a burger started sounding really good. I had a small burger with no cheese or mayo and a side of fries (they have the best fries! *drool*). The plan was to eat half the burger and half the fries but I was so hungry that before I knew it, both were gone. I did eat slow and thought about every bite (The points, OH the points!) that went in my mouth. I probably could have eaten more if there had been more to eat but by the time I got home I was full. I actually don't feel too bad about this. A burger and fries is a rare indulgence for me, and I really only went 5 points over my daily point total. I still have plenty of flex points and all of my activity points.
SO, the whole point of this silly post is that quote. On so many of your blog posts I read about the smart food choices we make and how great and empowered we feel afterwards. I also read about the dumb choices we make and how down on ourselves we are after.
Weight loss is about me. It is a completely selfish thing that I am doing for myself. I am in charge of my decisions. I am the only one who can truly make a smart or a stupid choice for myself. I choose to be happy!
