It’s Not a Diet!

I have been posting pictures and comments on Facebook and Instagram about my journey into healthy eating and exercise.  And I just got proof that people are really paying attention to what I’m doing, even if they don’t interact with me very often.

I went to Mary Lou’s Coffee yesterday with my kids and got a delicious and decadent

My Spilled Coffee

My Spilled Coffee

Girl Scout Cookie iced coffee, complete with some whipped cream and about 350 calories.  But I wanted it and I enjoyed it.

The problem was the poor girl behind the counter spilled mine by accident and had to make me another one.  And when she commented that she should have taken a picture, I obliged her and put it on Instagram and Facebook.

Then I get the comment, “I thought you were all into healthy eating?”

I am, but this is a lifestyle change, not a drastic deprivation diet.  I enjoy an occasional treat and made up for the extra calories by hitting the treadmill for a walk/run and the arc machine for a nice calorie burn.

Don’t live like everything is forbidden except carrot sticks and salad.  Enjoy a treat every now and then.  All things in moderation is a nice credo to live by.
