Holiday Indulgences & Curry Yogurt Dressing

The holiday season with its wealth of treats has begun, and my Sunday eating reflects it! I definitely had more of the Gianna’s cookies than I needed, along with a few yummy tartlets, and just too much food in general.

I am so grateful that my appetite does balance itself out, so I found myself not all that hungry on Monday, and ate fairly light. My approach to eating is never an all or nothing deal РI eat what I want to eat, but usually in moderation, with planned indulgences that are a small part of the overall picture of my nutritional intake. When I stay aware of what I am doing, and make conscious choices, and pay attention to what my body tells me, this works very well.

Tracking my intake, through these pictures and through writing it down much of the time (I’ve used DietPro in the past, I’m now experimenting with LiveStrong.com’s MyPlate) gives me the information I need to keep my eating supportive of my health and fitness.
