Some people can adjust to allowing themselves a cheat day. That whole concept would not work for me. I am an ALL or NONE type of girl! The only way that this healthy journey is working for me is to not give into the unhealthy temptations. I wake up and eat early enough that I can still get my 5 to 6 meals in a day before I go to bed. Even when I'm on the go; I pack my meals to go along with me so that I won't go hungry or feel like I have to buy something quick (unhealthy). Also, even if it is not a workout day for me; I still stay active doing something to keep moving.
Weekends are the worse for me...all that "free time" allows me to get off track...this past weekend was horrible but it's behind me...I'm back on track and don't plan to have another weekend of "ripping/running" anytime soon so I can go to the gym, plan/eat a little better, etc...don't beat yourself up...just pick up and get back on track...but I think planning the weekends is the key!
