I have a confession, I have learned that when I have a really good workout, I tend to let my eating slip. I know all the reason that I shouldn’t be eating that pound cake, but I do it anyway, because, I had a really good workout. I can’t explain it. Hopefully, I’m not the only one out there with this dilemma. As I’m munching on snack foods, I even think to myself
Your totally cancelling out all that hard work you just did!
So how do we move passed this crisis? Well, one thing is probably to not have these foods in the house. My excuse was a recent get together at our place. Since I never have these foods in the house, I think I went a little over board. I also think we should give ourselves a limit before getting in to a mess. Before even putting your hand in the chip bag, give yourself a restriction, two handfuls or 10 chips is plenty.
Working out is great, but what good does it do if we don’t follow it up with good foods? I think this is a question we have to constantly think about. Just imagine what the possibilities would be if we did both!
