So I have to admit...sometimes I'm tempted. The last challenge is over....the new challenge begins on July 7th. Do I get a cheat day? People ask ...don't you deserve a cheat?
LOl, everyone got that? I never refer to a day as a cheat day. The term cheat day implies an all out, eating fest that will put you in a food coma. Not a good idea.
Should you have a treat once in a while? Absolutely. Let's first define "once in a while". This is not once a week. I consider this to be about once every three weeks. So after the challenge ended, I had a treat....one donut. After the donut was gone, the treat was gone. NO more bad eating....back to my usual plan for the rest of the day.
So here's a synopsis : occasional treat=OK
Cheat day= No Way
