Goal for the Day: Treat Yourself

The ever-present jar of chocolate-covered
For as much as we all try to be careful about what we eat, every so often, it’s acceptable to have a little treat.  As long as we don’t over-indulge, a sweet snack occasionally doesn’t do much harm.  If we deprive ourselves of the foods we enjoy, those cravings can get the better of us and we end up over-eating to compensate.  Today, pick up a bag of your favorite sweet snack and put it in an attractive container.  Allow yourself a few pieces every once in awhile.  Just don’t over-do it.  By displaying the treat in a glass container, you can keep track of your consumption by seeing how much you’ve eaten.  Pace yourself.  We all need a treat now and again.
