Do you have any Cheat Meals?

cheatmeals

We all have cheat meals. Maaaany of you have asked me if I have any cheat meals, and the answer is OF COURSE!! ๐Ÿ˜Š

In my opinion, cheat meals play an important part in our fitness journey. If you don’t have weekly cheat meals, you’ll probably end up having one cheat meal that turns into a cheat day that turns into a binge weekend! ๐Ÿ˜

So yes, I indulge in a cheat meal at least once a week. BUT! Having a cheat meal doesn’t mean pigging out and eating everything you find in your fridge or eating a whole pizza by yourself ๐Ÿ˜‚

My cheat meals are usually things like sushi (๐Ÿ˜) or alcohol (champagne, wine or beer).
Since i’ve been doing #bbg, I no longer drink alcohol like I used to. I have stopped partying (unless its reeeally necessary) and have stopped drinking with my lunch or dinner. But every now and then there’s a birthday or a dinner, and I know i’ll be tempted to drink, so I plan in advance and have no other cheat meals during the week, knowing i’ll be cheating on a specific day. Planning my cheat meals sounds like a pain in the butt, but it’s helped me a lot!! And drinking champagne, wine and beer (in small quantities) instead of vodka or pisco has helped a lot as well (no more hangovers thankyouuu)!

So:

โž–plan your cheat meals in advance
โž–don’t turn your cheat meal into a binge cheat weekend
โž–don’t eat the unhealthiest thing on the menu – try to stay reasonably healthy with your cheat meals
โž–don’t feel guilty if you have a cheat meal once or twice a week
โž–don’t give up!! If you over indulge, this doesn’t mean you have to stop working out, it just means you’ll have to put in a little more effort! ๐Ÿ’ช .

 

Update: Since I wrote this blog post, i’ve changed my mentality on cheat meals. To read more about how I deal with cheats & treats, read my newer blog post about it.

  2. Hi Nat, how many fruits do you eat per day? I always feel like I eat too much of them. Like a banana for breakfast, all kind of berries in my lunchmeal, apple for snack and maybe something after dinner. Is it too much? Mirya
