I added 5 more minutes to my gym workout, but I am eating horribly. I will probably come in under my calorie "limit", but I will do it by only eating a jelly donut and some Cadbury mini eggs. Some days are better than others, right?
I was talking to my sister a couple of weeks ago and she said "You know, as long as you follow the 80/20 rule, you will probably come out okay". And she's really right. If I am "good" 80% of the time (going to gym, eating healthfully, positive attitude, etc.) and 20% of the time my choices might be a little more questionable (like a jelly donut for breakfast and mini eggs for lunch). It really should be about moderation. I am working on moderation. I tend to be very "all or nothing" and really, after 40 years on the Earth, I should see that it doesn't really work that great for me. Trying to teach this old dog some new tricks.
