Really? You can't possibly understand how excited I got that I was going to get to eat an entire meal of whatever I wanted without feeling the least bit guilty! Oh the JOY! :D I asked them what I should eat, I thought they'd die ROFL! They said, "Just eat! Eat whatever you want! CHEAT for goodness sake!" Have I told you lately that I love Tab and Chelle???? I really do. They MADE me cheat! YIPEEEEEEE!
I decided my cheat meal would happen Saturday night. I thought about it and pondered it constantly for the next two and a half days. I debated whether I'd eat ice cream (my absolute favorite naughty thing) or whether I'd eat something else that was carb-y and fatty but still healthy.
After MUCH deliberation...... I chose to do both! The hubby was sweet enough to prep it for me, he's a closet chef. My menu for the main part of my meal included:
|French toast, fruit salad and grapefruit! YUM!|
- French Toast made w/ Ezekiel Cinnamon bread. I drizzled it with honey and sprinkled it with my protein powder. (Yes - I asked him to keep the yolks in the batter!) YUM!
- 1/2 a grapefruit
- Fruit Salad (homemade)
|Ok, ok! Yes, I did put protein powder on my cake and ice cream. It was good! |
And I didn't want to miss out on the muscle building protein!
- A baby size Ben & Jerry's Cookie Dough ice cream
- a small slice of chocolate cream cake
Oh, the GRubBage! You guys, it was soooo good! And I felt great the next day! I had soo much energy and was quite productive. I may continue this "cheat thing". I think I'd keep it a clean cheat though and just have the "meal" part of the cheat and nix the dessert. No one needs that crap every week.
In general, week ten was successful. I increased some of my weights again and feel like I may have leaned out a little bit. We adjusted my cardio some and it really feels great.
Here's to another successful week!
Happy Monday, dear reader!
