Day 1..or 2…holding tough

Well, so far being back on track has consisted of one brownie, one GNC shake, one taco and one serving of a “boxed” dinner…not really awesome for days 1 and 2.  HOWEVER with that being said, I did not eat an entire box of cereal either day, nor did I make 3 peanut butter & jelly sandwiches, so that feels like an accomplishment in and of itself.
