Do you have cheat days?

I have been REALLY good for 2 weeks, no soda AT ALL, and it's my biggest weakness. I have also met my calories everyday, carbs, proteins and fat. Today SS is having a sleepover and they opted to have pizza for dinner. Against my better judgement I had a few slices, and because you can't pizza without soda, I had a glass too. I am only over my calorie limit by 100 or so. But I feel very satisfied. I might allow myself a cheat day once or twice a month, that way I don't feel so deprived.

Don't deprive yourself! Just plan for it! Either budget you calories or do an extra 20 mins on a stationary bike the day you want to have junk or something. (20 min at 13 mph is about 260 calories)

This is my plan. Hopefully soon I won't have the need for a cheat day.

I think you did really good and still got to enjoy something you have always liked. I give you credit for not going overboard like I have a tendency to do with things like that. Good job!

I don't consider it cheating. I'm living a healthy lifestyle and I make allowances for treats. I plan and I figure out what I can have... like the poster above said..I dont desire a lot of junk anymore so once in a while doesn't derail me.
