Yesterday morning at my Bible study, one of the fabulous women that attend every Thursday and help set up brought in a very tempting blueberry bread dish as well as a quiche made with bacon and cheese.
As you can see I ate most of it:
Whoops….I guess some would say that makes me a hypocrite.
But actually, it doesn’t.
Listen, well have days where we will indulge ourselves in some of our favorite foods that are less that great for us. Okay, fine….they really aren’t that great at all. (Even though they taste divine at the time).
Even tonight I had Mexican food with friends and a cupcake.
But now I know it is time to get back on track. Because I can’t eat like that all the time. Once in awhile is fine. Enjoy yourself. Just don’t do it every weekend. Get back on track. Start incorporating more greens and fruits in your diet as a way of detoxing any of the junk that is probably still in your system.
Drink plenty of water.
If you are on Shakeology, be sure and continue incorporating that as one of your meals as well.
Work out. Find a workout that makes you excited about everyday. Yes there is such a thing!
Being a healthy individual who chooses to eat well most of the time is not a prison sentence. It is a life giver. More often than not, those who choose to eat healthier and work out consistently refuse to go back to the habits they had before….making cheat days less likely. It isn’t because they look down on those who do have cheat days, but because they love how they feel after eating well and HATE how they feel after choosing poorly.
But if you have been consistently working out, eating right then one day of indulgence will not set you back. It is the habitual choice to eat poorly that will harm you.
