My day off was incredible. Such wonderfully yummy food, I was in heaven! There is a couple things I thought I would share though:
I decided right at the end of my day to scarf some last minute sugar. I don’t recommend this, as though you may feel great going to bed, you might wake up in severe pain because of the amount of acid you intake at the last moment. It took about an hour at 4 am to settle my stomach pains down and fall back asleep. Also, because of that mistake in the night I had some serious issues eating anything that had any amount of acidity in it. Example: Tomato salsa. So, if you’re in need of a last minute sugar binge on your cheat day, be aware of some of the problems you might run into!
The only other issue I’ve had bouncing back from cheat day is my pure exhaustion running on for 2 days. There is more contributing to the exhaustion factor (which I’m going to post about next) but though I was yearning for healthy food again, I wasn’t able to enjoy it, eat enough, last 4 hours, or stay awake. Something about my cheat day affected the transition. I’m looking forward to trying another this weekend and working out some kinks.
If you have any stories or advice for cheat day that you’ve encountered or heard about, please twitter me! @katpenfold
Have a healthy week!
