Accountability and Moderation

Yesterday started the second week of my March Challenge. For more information on that, you can click here. As part of that challenge, I made it a goal to take and post pictures of each of my meals this week. 

Why take pictures of my meals and post them for all to see? That answer is easy; for accountability. If I know that I have to post pictures of my meals, I am automatically having to put more thought into what I'm eating. It helps make me want to make better choices.

Breakfast
Protein Smoothie with Assorted Fruits (210 calories)

Total calories: 1,823

My mom brought over Girl Scout Cookies for us yesterday. It was a nice treat, and I used them as my snacks. Not the healthiest option, but since I was able to manage a decent number of total calories for the day, it's all good.

That's what I love about living a healthy lifestyle. It's not about dieting. Ever since I dropped 40 pounds from making healthier choices, without dieting, I vowed to swear off dieting forever. There are no foods that are "off limits". Moderation is key! That's my motto, and hopefully you'll see more of that in the pictures I post this week.

What's your favorite Girl Scout Cookie? I really like Tagalongs, myself.
