    ✅ Exercise: 60+ minutes walking. Enjoyed going to a botanical garden to see their 60,000 tulips, although the season is a bit late this year so only about half of them were fully blooming.

    Thinking about how I define treats. I am pretty much avoiding sugar and processed foods, so the treats that I do have are things like kiwis, berries, or apples, and I generally have them at the end of a meal. Occasionally I will buy dark chocolate, but only that has more than 90% cocoa so it is not sweet enough to make me crave it and I can limit myself to a very small amount at a time. I rarely snack, although I may have some nuts if I am really hungry at a time I had not planned to eat.

    Yes x 3 Woke to snow this morning 😢😢😭

    Apple Watch prompted me to raise my “goals” again. Allowed the changes (with some trepidation 🥸). Closed all the rings today so that’s good.

    9+ km; 13,000+ steps; 68 minutes exercise.

    Treats. Hmmmm. 🧐 I have no “forbidden” or restricted foods (including wine🍷) and make “space” for whatever I’d like to have. I sometimes need to wait until the next day so I can make the plan in advance, but I do have it if it is something I’d like to have. Sometimes by the next day I no longer really want it (or my darling husband has already eaten it). And no, he will never live down the having eaten the last Halloween full size Twix bar despite the fact I had tracked it for the following day. 😑

    sometimes when I can't seem to get going again I raise my calorie allowance. It seems strange but a binge will cost me 1000's of calories most likely and raising my cal allowance to avoid it by a couple hundred seems to satiate me better. Hang in there. Glad you are still here. :)

    3 yeses for yesterday!
    2 pass days for the month
    I am still working on minimizing treats. Yesterday I had a 100 calorie Breyer’s ice cream and a mini pack of m&ms. No guilt-tracked it and stayed within macros

    @donna25trinity - Now you're talking my language! I love treats. Your question though, made me think about how do I define a treat - are they sweet, salty, processed, high fat, high carb, "bad for you"? I realized that I think about treats as something that isn't part of my main meal and generally thought of as "bad food" in diet culture. For example, last night I had 3 squares of bittersweet chocolate and 4 very delicious and sweet strawberries for dessert, but in my head I only think of the chocolate part as the treat. I always eat some sort of treat after dinner and once in a while after lunch.

    I make a lot of homemade snacky foods, like the equivalent of Whole Foods Raincoast Crisp crackers, Cheez-Its, or biscotti with my sourdough starter discard. These things last a long time without going stale since they are all double baked. If I have any of those, I tend to think of them as snacks and not treats. Weird, I know.

    Snack or treat - it all gets tracked!

    @enlightenme3 yes I totally know what u mean about snack vs treat business. I often wonder the same thing and get the 2 confused. Seems like u hve alot of discipline around your snacks and treats.

    3️⃣Pass Days left

    Treats: I’ve always allowed myself small treats, but I tend to go for much healthier versions than I used to have, or measured amounts.
    🔹measured portions: 20g popcorn; 10g of nuts; 20g chocolate etc
    🔹fruit or veggie sticks
    🔹biscuits under 100 calories (I have a few favourites)

    Occasionally I will have an indulgent dessert or ice cream. I have no forbidden foods, so seldom feel I’m depriving myself.

    Mind you, I’m in maintenance, so it’s not so crucial any more to be really strict.

    However, I do choose to eat healthy the majority of the time as I value maintaining the health and fitness of my body.

    @TerriRichardson112 looks like u hve the whole treat thing working 4 u and eating in moderation too which is awesome. Xo
