Default easier with no sugar on cheat days

I decided to modify my cheat day and just choose to have extra food if I wanted, but nothing sweetened with sugar or otherwise (besides usual shake & Mio). Last week I got into trouble with IP bars, so even those things can be triggering! I feel much better now. I haven't felt deprived so far and love not having to do the day-after compensation. Also my sweet tooth is not calling out.

My treat was cubes of butternut squash roasted with coconut oil, cayenne pepper, and garlic. Extra chicken, and a spoonful of roasted pistachio oil. It helped to stick to whatever was around rather than go grocery shopping with cheat day in mind.
