Less Than Perfect

This is just a short entry.  I wanted to make sure that I clarified one HUGE point.  I am NOT perfect at staying away from junk food and always having a balanced meal.  If you read my post when I first started this endeavor, you saw that I am changing 1 or 2 habits at a time.  I am taking it slowly!  That is so important because if you change too much, too quickly ... you will not stick with it!  That being said ... I had a Coca-Cola and ramen noodles today ...
I am blogging about this quest for two reasons:

1.  To share with others the information and ideas that I learn and to give you, the reader, tips on how you can make improvements to your eating habits.
2.  To be held accountable!!  This is so important because if there is no one holding me accountable for the changes that I say I'll make ... it would be easy to quit!

Having a healthy diet does not mean that you deprive yourself of "treats" all together!  Allowing yourself to indulge, just a LITTLE BIT on OCCASION will help you from falling off the wagon.  If you love potato chips, but you say, "I am not going to eat any chips at all," it is likely that you will start craving them until you finally give in and go overboard.  What happens then?  You feel like you failed, decide that you can't do it, and then give up.  This is just MY philosophy and I am quiet aware that others may not agree, but this is what works for me to keep me from giving up!
