Day one, try again

Yesterday I decided I was going to try and eat more healthy.  But then I ate a bunch of cookies ; (

Today when I wanted to eat a cookie I thought "no" and had a nice positive reinforcement.  Maybe I can turn the switch from meaning stress and reward = sweets, to be turn down the sweet=reward of feeling good.  That would be nice. 

I definitely notice that I freak out at the kids when I've been eating a lot of sugar.  There are so many reasons why it's important to eat well.  Without sugar, I'm much more calm, yay, and less impulsive, except for the bunk bed fiasco I've been working on today...  Well, baby steps.
