This is what a cheat meal used to look like..
It wasn't even a cheat meal, it was more of a binge. I would find the unhealthiest meal on the menu and gorge, justifying to myself that it was a cheat and it was a one time thing. But that meal would make me feel so bad about myself that I wouldn't stop at one bad meal, and before I knew it I was way off any healthy plan I had tried to stay on and it was just easier to give up. And then start over. Again.
I also used to hide my eating. Like, I would see what I could eat without anyone knowing. I think it was trying to exercise (ha, pun not intended) some sort of control, when all it was doing was isolating and causing harm to myself. It was a vicious cycle that kept repeating itself.
Here's what a cheat meal looks like now...
I work hard, fueling my body with nutritious foods and working out regularly. When I want to have something of a cheat meal, I don't deprive myself. I enjoy food. To ENJOY it, not to sneak it in order to feel in control. I jump right back into routine because I know how it good it feels to work towards being my healthiest self. I surround myself with supportive and motivating people that share the same struggles.
