I manage a country homestead and the lives of my 4 babies ages 10,8,5 and 3. I LOVE TO RUN and NEED to keep healthy and fit for my SANITY!! Seriously....All problems are solved when I am running.

Making MY health a priority allows me to be the mother and wife that I need to be for them.

Don't fret. Tomorrow is another day.

Trying to watch what you eat, or are you on a diet and trying to lose weight??

Have a craving?

Indulge.

Well, don't eat the entire bag of cookies, but do allow yourself space in your diet for those goodies you love.

If you avoid completely, all you will do is focus on it, and when you finally give in, you will eat WAY more than what you will feel good about it.

So leave room for a cookie or two....no not at every meal.

And if you mess up and eat too much?

Don't worry.

Tomorrow is another day. Don't punish yourself. Just start over and know better next time.

I have been trying to do that Alyson. But, some things I love too much and if I have one bite I feel like I could eat a whole bag. So I try to make some sort of substitution.

Works most of the time.

I have been loving your advice! Please keep it coming!

I don't have self control. I just don't buy stuff...and when I do, I make Adam eat most of it ;)
