Splurge Day! And I'm OK!

Saturday, November 06, 2010

Yesterday I TOTALLY splurged. I took the kids out to lunch after their first dentist appointment (which went swimmingly)--we went to our favorite ice cream parlor. I had 1/2 a grilled crab salad sandwich and some onion rings, and a small sundae, and some root beer. Then late last night, my husband and I busted out the Halloween pumpkins and mowed through a bunch of candy while we watched a movie. Did I mention that I skipped my workout?

Here's the thing though: I feel fine about it! I'm not trippin. I realize that this is only one day and that, the vast majority of the time, I'm working out regularly and eating well. I thoroughly enjoyed my splurge day, and today I did a make-up workout with extra time on the treadmill.

I'm inspired by Coach Nancy's (SP_COACH_NANCY) motto on her sparkpage:
"Perfection and guilt have no place in living a healthy lifestyle."

That is so true! It's OK to "blow it" once in a while. In fact, blowing it isn't even blowing it. Rather, it's more accurate to say that it's healthy to enjoy yourself and "live it up" occasionally, GUILT FREE. What a revelation!
