Splurge Guilt

My eyes are glazed over from editing 90+ pages of a document this afternoon, so please forgive me if this post lacks my typical energy. I can't wait to get out of the office and go to my Body Pump class this evening :)

Anyway, as for the midweek update, I am pleased to tell you that I did not let the splurges from the weekend destroy my week. Starting on Monday, I got back to eating healthy and exercising. Both days I ate within my points and did cardio at the gym. I think that this may be the secret to maintaining one's weight--alternating "bad" eating days with "good" ones. I weighed myself on the gym scale (I know, it's a bad idea to use different scales) and it looks like my weight is back down a bit, so hopefully I'll see a loss at my weigh in tomorrow.

At the moment, all I can think about is the weekend. Bizzarly enough, I'm actually craving some alone time and I'm thinking about allowing myself a mini-splurge on Friday night with some pizza and maybe an ice cream sandwich (and a good movie, of course). It's kind of been bugging me that I've been wasting my WPs on social activities (yes, I'm still peeved about the Chipotle incident). So, this week, I'd like to splurge on foods that I actually like. Haha...what a novel concept, right?

So, I'm thinking on Friday that I'll make my own individual pizza at home and then buy an ice cream sandwich and maybe top the night off with some popcorn or twizzlers...Just to be clear, this is not a binge, just a splurge. Maybe I'll use 10-12 WPs. Does this sound like a healthy-ish plan to you?

It's weird. In the past, I've tried to make my splurges social events so that I don't feel guilty about them. But now, I'd like to plan a splurge for the food. Does that make any sense to you? Do you ever plan food splurges that aren't related to social activities?

  1. Personal pizza + ice cream sandwich + twizzlers and a great movie? Sounds like a perfect plan to me!

    I normally do most of my splurges in conjunction with social events, but I think its important to identify what your body wants and give it that sometimes!
