Time for Truth Corner ✋🏼📐(did anyone else have circle time at school?! That was lol)
On Wednesday, I had the privilege of dining at @eric_lanlard House, so you best believe I'm not stupid enough to say no to his menu. The man is a food god.
I hadn't had a cheat in 10 days, I'd trained twice that day (cardio and legs/glutes), and I knew I could train twice the following day (cardio and back/arms).
On Thursday, walking down the cake aisle at the supermarket was sheer torture.
Yesterday, all I did all day was toy with the idea of buying @oreo cookies.
And today, it has finally passed, and I don't feel tortured anymore.
A lot of you who have cheat nights and weekends off will be familiar with this.
If you allow yourself to eat all the foods you normally deprive yourself of, the next few days are going to be HARD.
Your #body has had that sugary, fatty,
beautifully tasting survival package of dreams and it wants IN.
You are in for a tough couple days.
There are 2 ways of dealing with this:
1. If you track your #calories and or #macros , you can allow yourself small treats here and there, so long as they fit into your numbers.
2. If when you have a cheat, the next few days are hell, don't cheat habitually. Make your cheats rare, and you will struggle less.
I personally am an option 2 kind of girl, but you don't have to be do or die, you can have balance, SO LONG AS YOU DO IT ACCURATELY.
I know it can seem like tracking #calories and #macros has restricted you, but it's actually the opposite. This method of dieting could give you the food freedom you've been looking for.
Or do it like me, and don't waver until you're Lean as a quaver. Made that up. Sort of makes sense. Ish.
