Normal Eating?

What exactly is normal eating? For me it means not stringently counting points, calories, fat, not labeling food as good or bad, and most importantly enjoying what I eat! So I am going to tell what I ate yesterday. I know that it, by no means, met any healthy guidelines, but I did the best I could and I am not going to beat myself up over it.

1 serving old fashioned oatmeal with less than 1/4 cup crasains. I know it was less even thought I didn't measure, just because I have measured it out so much I visually know.

Large fiji apple

1/2 BBQ Chicken and onion quesadilla, tortilla chips, 2 oz of sour cream, salsa

100 cal oreo bites
about 10 plain M&Ms

Black bean, great northern bean, rotel, and orzo pasta concoction
Single serve package of dark chocolate cadbury mini eggs

Woah. I don't feel like a deprived myself yesterday and I ate chocolate 3! times! I know I could have chosen a few different things to make my overall eating better for the day, but I didn't. I am ok with that. I enjoyed my lunch out and I was comfortable with all of my choices. I didn't associate guilt with anything I ate yesterday. Hopefully I will be able to keep this up.
