My cheat day yesterday :/

Friday, April 08, 2011

I got to spend the day with my husband yesterday and, of course, we went out to eat. I told him since I had been choosing our meals for the last few weeks he could pick wherever he wanted. He decided to go to Golden Corral. I made me a salad first then after I finished it I went and had stuff loaded with calories. I didn't eat a lot of it but what I did eat made me feel guilty afterwards. Then by the time we got home last night and got the kids in bed I was exhausted so I didn't do any kind of excersing whatsoever. I know it's ok to occasionally give yourself a break or cheat day, but I don't think I want another one for a long time. I like knowing that I am doing good and making myself healthier. A friend of mine sent me a text message the other day that said Live life to the fullest, it's not like you are going to make it out alive anyways. I want to live my life to the fullest by being happy with myself and my body not using that saying as on ok to be fat and overeat and not exercise.

    I can definitely relate! I went to lunch with some work friends today, and we ended up at an asian buffet.. I did my best to be sensible, but I definitely exceeded my normal lunch limits... At least we can recognize it's not the healthiest option anymore.. I know a month ago, I wouldn't have given it any thought at all, and just stuffed myself!

    Either way, you can stick to your goals, even if you slip up every now and then.. You have the right attitude... Keep at it!

    I find now that when I give myself permission to have a "cheat" day, I don't want it because I have to work so hard to lose any weight that one cheat day just sets me back too far to be worth it. I work in little cheats, like a margarita here or there or maybe going to cold stone once in a great while, things I want at that moment. I don't do this very much either, maybe once every couple of weeks. I love that you started with salad! Good intentions, right? But my gosh, that place is just unhealthy, isn't it? So many bad things you can eat there, and those deserts! I haven't set foot in one in years but used to work with a woman who loved to have lunch there. Skinny woman. Could eat anything. I hated her. Still do. Anyway, sounds to me like you have good perspective on the cheat day and I bet you don't go there again.
