Cheat days

I have been contemplating having 1 cheat day a week.  I go back and forth on the subject because there are pros and cons to it.  I think I am set on one cheat day per week, but it is not an all out eat everything in sight type of cheat day.  That will just make me gain back whatever I lose during the rest of the week.  It is going to be one meal and I am not going to eat until I am sick and full.  Therefore, I will be clean eating about 90% of the time, but still get to indulge on the bad, processed foods a little.  It really isn't the indulging that I care is the non preparing for 1 meal that I will get to do.  So really it is just me being lazy.

Sundays are usually spent at my parents house after church and they have some sort of lunch planned out.  Other people come over to enjoy lunch as well, so they have not been clean meals because I am the only one eating this way.  This will take some planning on my part because I need to make sure I think through my 1 cheat meal according to what I have going on to ensure it is only one per week.  I have a birthday party next Saturday night so that will be it for this week.

Just some random thoughts about cheat days with my eating clean.  On another note...I ran 8 miles yesterday and my legs were so tired the second half of the run.  I had a good pace for the first 4 and then quickly slowed after that.  It took everything out of me to keep my legs going.  I think it is because all of my running this summer has been 4 miles or less on any given day.  It was hard, but felt good to accomplish it.  Today, my whole body is sore so I am going to try and get a workout in if it doesn't kill me.

Work starts again tomorrow...UGH!


  1. Planning is the hardest part, if someone could go to the store like every other day for me that would be awesome :) I don't want you to start work, summer was toooooooo short!!!!

  2. Do you take some fuel like GU to eat when you run that far? I haven't run that far yet but my friend at work said anything after about 6 you need to have more fuel while you run.

    Your blog is cute but it's hard on my eyes to read. (just an FYI you can tell me to suck it lol)

    Thanks for having me on your blog roll I had a few people come over from here when I was looking at my stats. I should do one on mine too!
