Dealing With Indulgences


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

It's not always possible to always stay on the "straight and narrow" path of eating "perfectly". Sometimes life happens and we indulge in foods that are not "on the plan." When this happens, my best advice is to "Own it...track it...and move on."

There's no sense in beating yourself up for enjoying that cake...margarita...whatever! Just know that you have to fess up...account for it...and adjust accordingly to move back to "center"...whether it's adding on some more exercise...or eating a little less tomorrow.

    This happens to me all too often.

    I think this is great advice. Life is going to happen, it's important to just try to stay on track and not let it make us give up.
