JBUCHANAN79 Everyday is a new day to behave better than the day before. Who can't resist GS cookies. It's good that you are aware of how many calories over you were. A lot of people aren't aware of portion sizes. Your strength training should be done no more than every other day to give your muscles time to rebuild. Cheat days are necessary once in a while. It sounds like you are doing fine and will succeed. Sheila937

There is nothing wrong with taking a "cheat" day, but it must still be done in moderation and not as a reward for what you have done the rest of the week. My Thursdays and Fridays are usually higher calorie days as I don't eat as healthy foods as I usually do the rest of the week. I also take off from exercising either of those two days, but I started that only a couple of weeks ago. Be careful that your cheat days especially with sugar don't keep on rolling on. I know I can't seem to stop eating sugar once I start :( Good luck!

So I joined the site almost a week ago, and i had been doing really well on my diet and exercise until yesterday when the girl scout cookies came in. Is it good to have a cheat day, while not going to over board? I know I went about 600 calories over, and yesterday was the only day I had planned to take off from the cardio and strength training.
