So, Monday I ate good, lots of salad. I taught 2 fitness classes that night at the gym. 45 minutes of interval step/weights and 45 minutes of hardcore boot camp. It was EXTRA warm in there so everyone left completely SOAKED in sweat! :o)
Tuesday I got up and headed for the gym again to go to Shelley's ball/weights class and then I taught boot camp. I threw in some Insanity moves to up the intensity a bit and it was a great workout. I ate good all day Tuesday because I knew we were going out to Zio's Italian for dinner. I also knew that I had a coupon for a free appetizer and that we would order the Italian Nachos (my FAVORITE). Thankfully, since we were having dinner with some friends, I behaved myself and only ate a "normal" amount of the appetizer instead of hogging it and licking the plate before I let the waiter take it away! ha ha Matt and I shared a thin crust combo (supreme) pizza and I had 2 small slices. Not good by ANY means...but better than I would have done previously. It was my "cheat" day so no biggie.
The proof will be today...a very busy day for me...that I get in a work out AND continue back on my healthy eating. I've already had an inkling to just "throw caution to the wind" and eat something unhealthy...but I resisted the urge. I MUST not let a single cheat day completely change the direction of my path. It's like a speed bump and instead of going over it...I just turn and go down a different road (the road to eating junk again). Ugh! Live and learn, right? :o)
I will (plan to) weigh on Friday and see if the scale shows any progress. Even if it doesn't, I know I've made some VERY good choices over the past week and I'm proud of that. :o)
