So You Made A Mistake...

So last night you splurged and went to Dairy Queen and had a large Oreo Blizzard and now you feel like absolute crap and could not possibly get off the couch, let alone make it to the gym. Or maybe you have been slacking on getting a new pair of sneakers and now your knees are killing you.

Just like anything else in life, mistakes happen in fitness too. Use your mistakes as lessons for your fitness endeavors in the future. This way, the next time you're craving ice cream, you may just opt for the smaller size or even skip it altogether. Let's be honest do you really want to feel that crappy ever again?

Don't beat yourself up about the mistakes you make in fitness and health, just learn from them and move on.

I sooo agree with u Nikkih...its like whenever I cheat, its a domino effect, I always have a feel guilty and do nothing period...instead of just getting off my ass, and working out!

I made this mistake just yesterday: I bought a chocolate bar (with almonds) from a co-worker who was selling it for their kids' football team, then I went home and had a huge slice of cheesecake!! I felt terrible this morning, but I still went and did my normal workout. I'm glad I did, because I would have just felt worse if I would have sat around feeling sorry for myself--and my waistline!

Just because you binged today, doesn't mean you have to binge tomorrow. Eat normal after a splurge, then restrict. I never try to immediatly jump into a heavy restriction after a binge.

It's 2am and I just ate Wheat Thins... I’m on a strict diet and am doing so good... Until the Wheat Thins called out to me… I'll just be extra careful tomorrow.
