Usually I have one cheat day a week, where I eat whatever I want. Not last week.
I had a weak moment with (crunchy) peanut butter and medjools on Tuesday. Read: A Lot of medjools and pb. Followed by Ben&Jerry’s.
It was totally okay, I felt fine, was like ah well, that was my cheat day for this week. Then Wednesday night I grabbed the pb jar along with the box of medjools again. When I finished the medjools, I didn’t stop with the pb; I grabbed a spoon. I remembered I still had a raw cacao bar, and dipped the bar in the pb jar (tasted quite good actually haha). Continued with pb and a spoon. Then it hit me I still had regular dates lying around, yay!
I think you get the situation; there was no stopping until the pb jar was almost empty and I was so nauseous and stuffed that I barely slept that night. Next day I felt extremely bleh and my stomach was really upset. I don’t feel really good about it but I don’t feel guilty and I don’t panic. There was a time when this was different but I got a little bit older and calmer and I realize that there’s always a tomorrow.
So as a Fit Girl, why am I sharing this?
Because even a Fitgirl has off days; we are all human. Some days we just need a whole jar of pb, and I want you to know that’s okay! Enjoy it, accept it and move on. One slip-up won’t make you less of a Fit Girl – not even 100 slip-ups. Don’t be too hard on yourself!
