So the other day I had an epiphany, and I've been trying to learn from it and live by it. I realized that allowing myself to "cheat" was just silly. Of course I realized this as my arms were burning while I was strength training and the realization that if I hadn't driven through McDonald's for lunch, I'd be burning off yesterday's calories instead of today's. Funny thing is, I knew I'd made a mistake. They say the first step to solving a problem is realizing that the problem exists. I think by admitting a mistake was made you are in essence acknowledging the problem's existence. So, while we berate ourselves for screwing up and eating the wrong thing or skipping a day of cardio, let us remember...by being frustrated with ourselves we have taken the first step. We've acknowledged the problem. Now let's take that next step forward and work on solving it!
