I did pretty well on my health goals this last week… I did lots of walking and ate really pretty healthy!
However… this week presents a challenge. Wednesday is my birthday (yay! 🎉). But with birthdays means going out to dinner with my hubby and, of course, cake and ice cream. And leftover cake and ice cream. Not to mention the fact that I already know I’m not going to want to exercise on my birthday!
So how does one stay healthy while still enjoying all the fun of a birthday? I definitely don’t have the self control to do one of those watermelon “cakes” instead of a real cake (bring me CHOCOLATE!)
So, instead I am going to set some limits. I can eat out, but still try to choose a healthier option at the restaurant. I can have cake and ice cream, but don’t eat the whole thing myself! I can enjoy taking that day off of exercising, but I need to still exercise every other day this week.
Most importantly- I need to not use this as an excuse to stop all together! It’s easy to fall into the trap of enjoying a special day and turning it into a week, month, or however long of not eating right or exercising.
Do you have a big event coming up? How are you going to stay healthy thru it?
