Day 6 Recap....

When I did Weight Watchers and went to the meetings all the members would talk about a cheat day... cheat day?? I tell me more! They said if your going to have a cheat day ( and you most likely will ) make sure its right after you weigh in for the week so that you have the rest of the week to work it off. So needless to say day 6 was my cheat day. I am going to warn you now that I will probably have one every week, most likely on a Saturday or a Sunday. You see if you don't allow yourself at least one day ( and not right before you weigh in either) to kinda jump off the diet band wagon you will most likely jump off more than a few times and that is not good because that is how you slowly get to the point where you stop me I know! I found out that cheating 5 days and dieting 2 days just does not work no matter how hard you silly to think I did that sometimes but true.

I also think there are levels to diet cheating...let's take my day for instance. I got up did my normal Special K breakfast and got ready for the day and so on, well the idea was brought up that we go out for Chinese ( not my idea just so you hey, I feel that is important for you to know. ) so I thought ... what the heck, let's do it! So we went to have Chinese ( my fave) for a late lunch. So of course I feel guilty but think, it's's my cheat day. Well now let's go back to what i was saying before about the levels of cheating. I allowed myself that yummy lunch but that didn't mean i had to go the rest of the day cheating, I mean I cant imagine how many calories I just ate! I had my fun and now it was time to do the rest of my day right. So you see there is a huge difference between cheating ALL day which I use to do before and cheating for just one meal. I am sure down the road I will discover that my cheat day will revolve around a snack or a dinner or maybe even a breakfast, who knows. But the idea is to keep in mind is that just because you blow it on a meal the whole day doesn't have to go to waste.

Look to your health; and if you have it, praise God and value it next to conscience; for health is the second blessing that we mortals are capable of, a blessing money can't buy.~ Izaak Walton


  1. Oh, I'm happy to find your blog. I suspect I cheat too much myself. I'm looking at Nutrisystems. Not sure about it. Looking at other options too, like your exercising character :-) I'll keep checking your blog. This is adorable.

  2. Hey Abby!! So glad you stopped by. I tried Nutrisystem once, I loved how they delivered to your door and you could customize what you got. My only real big complaint was there they were always out of the chocolate brownies..LOL I mean you have to have some kind of chocolate when dieting. :)

    Good luck to you! And thanks for checking out my blog!
