Food Friday - 4th of July Treats!

I often get emails and people asking me if I ever eat treats. I know I've addressed this before,  but here's a perfect example:
Looks good huh? (My Mom made it.) How about this one.....
SO to answer your.... YES! I do eat treats, in moderation of course. Holidays are a perfect example of a time when family often gets together and an assortment of treats are served. This is a time when I plan ahead. Planning ahead is key in being successful in all of this as far as maintenance. (Remember when I was actively losing, I was very strict and focused on my end goal.) The best part is, I loved every bite and felt not one bit of guilt!

Are you planning ahead?

Here's hoping everyone has had a happy 4th!

Pin It!

  2. I'm getting back to planning ahead, because I do know it's best, though now I'm working towards staying strict and focused to finish up the weight loss portion of my journey. :)

    Loved your recap of the half if I didn't already mention that. Went to high school in Bellingham, WA and love that area!! One of my fitness goals is to run a half with a friend of mine who lives in Oregon. Your trip looked so fun.

  3. I love your blog! Joy is the word that led me here!! Congrats on the accomplishments you have made with your best friend, God!!
