cheating on an exam – bad.
cheating on your significant other – bad.
cheating on your diet – not bad!
well, kind of… if you stay on task all week, you my friend have earned yourself what people call a “cheat meal” . this is a meal where you throw nutritional value to the side and enjoy whatever it is you like the most.
what gets you though is that this is a once a week occurrence, not every time you feel you need one! i have found some great “rules” to follow when doing your cheating.
if i know a group of friends will be going out to dinner i will plan to use that for my cheat meal. if i don’t have a group going out i always save mine for sundays, that way i have something to look forward to all week.
my top food weakness is sweets. ice cream to be precise. i make sure each sunday that i make a trip to my favorite frozen yogurt shop to get my weekly fix.
so when you feel like giving in and eating junk, just think a cheat meal is only days away!
food- pumpkin pie frozen yogurt. do it. you will not be sorry. i promise.
fitness- make sure that you get in some form of exercise on your cheat day. it will help take the over-stuffed feeling away. just make sure and wait a while after the eating!
fun- check out this blog to find some cool restaurants around the okc area to enjoy your cheat meal at!
