Heartbreak with that CHEATING Fool

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Monday, January 13, 2014




Yea, It's CHEAT DAY !!!
It seems like all too often we CHEAT on OURSELVES.
We don't want to be in a relationship with a Cheater, so why do we do it to ourselves?








Books encourage us to SCHEDULE a Cheat day, making it OK.
The only problem is how many times do Cheat days turn into BINGE DAYS?
It's like saying it's OK to screw up.
Who has the willpower to SCREW UP just a LITTLE BIT?
Not me.








When I choose a Cheat day, I can't stop with one piece of PIZZA. Then I need a soda, something to balance the salty. Then I need . . . It seems like CHEAT DAYS is a free for all day. Cheat days create MORE CRAVINGS. I am a CRAVING HEAR ME ROAR !!!
WHO DARE Wake up the CRAVINGS.









Cheat days creates Zits on a perfectly clear complexion the next day. It's so not worth it.









Cheat days are like THROWING OPEN THE DOOR OF TEMPTATIONS. Temptations I have been battling to can up and over come.









I need Dis becomes I need that and so on and so forth. Beware the door has opened, food must go in. It's so hard to slam that door shut again once the cravings start.







You think you got it back under control and then you need one more thing before you feel satisfied, but your already full. CHEAT DAYS are like PLANNING FOR FAILURE.










Honestly it feels like they must put something in the foods to keep you eating them like an addicted, out-of-control fool. It's MSG, artificial flavors, tricking our brains causing a druggie like reaction.











Then REALITY sets in. YOU BLEW IT. Your miserable, stuffed, feel bad about yourself. So why then DID YOU CHEAT ON YOURSELF?











I found its better NOT TO SABOTAGE myself by even letting those triggers in the house. They say it's OK to have moderate amounts of cheat foods. YEA, really? All they do is keep me in the cravings cycle that leads to my destruction. Cheating on myself doesn't work, so I don't.









It's time to STOP CHEATING on yourself. Unless you want setbacks.










You wouldn't cheat on your marriage. Why cheat on yourself. Your stomach is NOT a TRASH CAN.







Distract yourself, in a few minutes the craving will pass. Working out always helps me to overcome the cravings.








I like quality foods, fresh fruits and vegetables.









When you cheat, your only hurting yourself.









It's not my day to Cheat. I won't do it. Nope. Not one bite. One day of cheating slows down weight loss down several days. It's NOT worth it.









We can do it. Let's be strong my Spark Friends. Lets be true to ourselves. Don't BLOW it. MAKE PROGRESS.








If I were in a relationship with a Cheater I would break up. Humm. It's so not worth the heartbreak.

    I don't believe in the cheat thing either. Instead, I have no boundaries on what I can eat and do the portion control thing. Much better than having me feel deprived - I don't do well in that scenario.

    I have a system where I keep my treat for the day at the very end of the day. So I eat normally - to create a deficit with healthy foods for the whole day - have some calories left over - within the losing range of course - and then use 40-150 kcals for a treat at the end for being good.

If I haven't been good the rest of the day I don't eat the treat - my punishment. And the treat can be something nice like a hot cup of cocoa, a mini cake, a couple of chocolate buttons, a mini-pudding or even a slice of wholegrain toast with 15g of nutella. Whatever takes my fancy within calorie range.

It works for me - I don't have any cheat days at all. I eat happy all day, every day. Some days I'm more in the mood for sweet stuff so I adjust my other meals in a way to allow for more calories to be spent on sweet stuff if I want for that day, but my calorie count stays within range and I still lose weight.

    When Dr Oz presented a "cheaterday" in one of his programs last year, he was not giving us permission to go wild. I'm pretty sure his idea of a cheaterday was an expanded version of healthy eating within a reasonable set of calories over our norm (a thousand or fewer calories). We're human and I don't think I want to confess to being a perfectionist. Good luck with what gives you both balance and progress.

super blog with such memorable images!

And I so agree: gotta keep my promises to myself.

Wouldn't expect to sustain a marriage with "one cheat day a week"!!

    Great blog and amazing photos as normal!

I try not to do CHEAT days myself as so easily they can become OVEREAT days and BINGE days. Though I did have some 'relaxed' days over Christmas but was straight back to it afterwards.

    So good to hear someone else saying this!

I don't have cheat days any more -- been there, done that. My "Fatterdays" turned into "Fatterweekends" and "Fatterweeks." They were aptly named! They were encouragement for the Binge Monster. I put weight back on, and felt rotten physically & emotionally. I track everything, everyday and feel much better!

Moderation is KEY.

I agree with the five reasons not to cheat especially all things in moderation and lerning how to eat in moderation is better than an entire cheat day.
