Falling Victim to Cheat here or there “How many cheats was that?”

You know what I’m talking about. You’re at the grocery store and it’s the end of a long day, so you tell yourself, “I’m going to treat myself to that cookie because I deserve it.” Or you’re out with friends and you say to each other, “We’re having fun, let’s treat ourselves.” And it’s okay, because you’ll split it. (The whole splitting trick i fell victim to over Thanksgiving)  Or maybe it’s a friends  birthday. Or you had a Bad day or even a bad workout, your kids were bad whatever the excuse.

How many times per week do you really end up “treating” yourself? Is it actually a treat or is it a regular part of your diet?

And is it really “treating” yourself? It doesn’t do your body any good. In fact, in all regards except a moment of instant gratification, it’s the opposite of treating yourself.

As we head into the holidays, think about your approach to  bad food “treats” Do you have a strategy? Alot of talking to myself.  Or for example I took Shawns birthday cake to my in laws house Not my house. Do you have a Wod partner, friend, loved one to hold you accountable when you need it?  What if you made it through a whole week without treats — can you think of a way to ACTUALLY treat yourself to something nice?

  1. This WOD looks hard.

  2. There are many days that come around that I think about cheating on my diet. but in the past 6 weeks especially when I want a sprite, ‘Paris let me has a drink of your sprite’ what does she say? ummm NO mom!!! I told Lindsey I would tell her if you drank one.
    then I smile and remember that if I cheat I will feel like crap (because I did) and I am trying to set a good example for the reds. the biggest reason of all is how amazing I have felt these past 6 weeks of eating as close to paleo as I have. I don’t see myself going back to eating the junk i did. I thought i ate clean as much as anyone, but it is amazing how much better I feel, how much faster and stronger i have been since this challenge started. so almost 20 pounds has been lost since we started. and starting tomorrow my next goal, no band pullups, wall pushups and 30 more pounds!!!! Its not Crossfit that has changed my life, it is Pearland Crossfit and the family there, that has changed my life and the reds’ as well. so I thank each and every one of you for all the ways yall have made a difference in our lives. Now let’s keep kicking that ass!!!!!!!
