Fit Girl Slip-Up (aka PB overdose)

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!

Are you experiencing difficulties getting your mojo back? Here are some tips to help you.

    Tuesday was my skip-workout-eat-chocolate-feel-depressed day :/ and I was really upset about it, I really could not understand where have my motivation disappeared over night…
    But yeah, the only thing I can do is move on and right now I'm back on track and still happy from my BodyCombat class this morning 🙂

    Aaahhhh thank you! This article makes me feel normal… Some days I just can’t say no to an entire bar of dark chocolate!! I try to fight the urge to eat it, sometimes I win and eat only two pieces 🙂
    I read your blog from Chile!

      Haha Carolina, same here! That’s impressive hah, I can’t do that, it’s the whole damn bar or nothing :’) but ah well we all need some chocolate sometimes!
