I'll begin by telling you about yesterday... mmmmmm.. yesterday. I have chosen Sunday as my cheat day, ya know, the "I will eat whatever I want and however much I want" day. Needless to say, I love Sundays.
When I say cheat-- it's only with food. I still run on Sundays and got in a good 4 miler yesterday. After that-- it was Farm fresh eggs and bacon. For lunch and dinner: a LARGE Italian submarine, with three kinds of meat, mayo, oil, the works! My desert?
Nestle Ultimate chocolate chip cookies! I went to bed with a huge smile on my face.
Some people scoff at cheat days. Those strict nutritionists who say there is no room for that kind of eating any day of the week, month, or year. I disagree and in fact, have been successful working in a day of gluttony.
I decided to "go nutz" one day per week when I started to stop losing weight. Someone mentioned that I was not consuming enough calories forcing my body to store fat. They suggested breaking the rules for one day to reset my metabolism. This was not hard and it is working. I began to drop the pounds again!
Today-- it's back to a healthy menu but it's not so bad. Today, is Turkey Chili!
Now, for that 10 miler-- I am running one today after work. That's it. Writing about Sunday is sooo much more interesting :)
How about you other runners out there, do you have a cheat day?
