After a long weekend and a few indulgences, I felt the need to share with you guys some of my treats!
I don’t like to have a “CHEAT DAY.” I just don’t believe in it. I like to treat myself when my body is telling me its okay. This isn’t every day or every weekend but I don’t deprive myself of things I want, I just limit it. I would probably feel so gross if I gave myself 1 day to eat as much junk as I wanted. I would hate the way I felt after and probably have a stomach ache and never want to do it again.
This past weekend I had a few more treats then usual but I worked my butt of in the gym last week and to be honest I’m not trying to lose weight so I wanted to make sure I took in extra calories. While I could’ve chose a few healthier snacks I let my cravings take over a bit and I enjoyed every second
Saturday morning part of my pre-boot camp meal was 1/2 of a Chocolate Chip Muffin and 1/2 of a Strawberry frosted donut from Dunkin Donuts. Marc and I did a little split and Ava also had a few bites. (her first time having a bite of a donut)
Talk about PURE SUGAR!
I also ate 2 eggs, spinach and 1 piece of whole grain toast. I woke up with a crazy appetite and I went with my sugar craving. It’s a good thing your body processes carbs better first thing in the morning because I loaded up!
My other indulgence this weekend was wine! (this was an old pic, my other one came out terrible)
Besides those few treats, I ate tons of grilled veggies, fresh fruit, lean meats and healthy carbs like sweet potatoes, corn on the cob, & potato salad.
So although I had my “TREATS” I didn’t eat anything else that I would consider unhealthy and I never thought twice about the muffin or the donut or the wine. I didn’t go over board and because of that, I never felt bloated, uncomfortable or the least bit upset with my choices.
The point of this post is to let you know that no one eats a perfect diet. I like my approach and it allows me to eat healthy 90% of the time and my 10% gives me a little leeway to eat whatever I want. Although I post tons of healthy stuff on this blog I’m still normal and I still like to enjoy food & life but in moderation!
What are your favorite “TREATS?”
Do you believe in “Cheat Days?”
