I ate about a thousand dark chocolate peanut M&M's. I couldn't stop. I have been at about 14-1800 calories a day and no serious amounts of sugar at all for a couple weeks. Last night I went off the rails.
In the past, this would have sent me on a downward spiral. I would be at it for good, eating whatever, whenever. I now wake up, shrug my shoulders, and say, "I'm not perfect." I will be back at the good diet today and move forward. I think I have gained some perspective of the years and understand my limitations now.
This is not to say I give up now. I am as focused on a strong 2014 as ever. I just am more understanding of me. I try to limit the caloric damage to not so often. Also, I make sure it's worth it. I do not simply binge on anything within the striking distance of my arms. I mae sure I think it's something I enjoy.
Last night, I enjoyed those M&M's!!! I will say, the thought of them right now is a little sickening. When I said I ate a thousand, I meant it :)
