Followed meal plan. Check. Drank water. Check. One hour of boot camp. Check. Today was a good day.
After weigh-in yesterday I was allowed to have a “cheat meal”. I thought of all kinds of stuff to eat. Mainly dishes involving potatoes. I decided on a jumbo loaded baked potato. You know the one, with broccoli, cheese, butter, sour cream and bacon. Went to market to get all the fixings. Once I had all that stuff, I wasn’t interested in splurging. I had worked too hard, I wasn’t hungry and there was nothing of which I felt deprived. This isn’t a sprint, it’s a marathon for me. When I get a hankering, I’ll satisfy it in moderation. For now, full steam ahead.
