I can be quite the crazy person sometimes. I follow the program to the letter, have a bad day (week), then chalk it up to a failed attempt. Rather than starting the vicious cycle over and over again, I am building in a "cheat" day to my program. That way I am not expected to do it perfect, I am just expecting myself to make progress. I am going to try it for a few weeks and see how it goes. It might just blow up in my face, but it might workout for the best too.
- The splurge has to be really worth it...if I am going to eat sweets, the better the good stuff or homemade.
- I must use self control with portions...like not eating an entire pint of ice cream.
- I must get some sort of physical activity.
- Right back on the program.
What are you thoughts on a free day? Does anyone else do this?
Tomorrow is the big Couch to 5k program kick off. I have my gym bag packed so I have no excuses when I get to work tomorrow. I just pray that it warms up. This weekend it felt like spring and today we are back to our negative temps. Either way, I am pumped to start running again.
Here is a little something for the Jack Bauer fan. This clip really cracked me up. If you are familiar with song from Team America World Police and the show 24, you should be able to appreciate the humor.
My husband and I giggle every time he says "dammit" on the show. I guess there is even a drinking game. Any other Jack Bauer fans out there?
