Work Hard Play Hard
If you eat clean and train consistently on a regular basis, and these are the ground rules you stick to, a treat here or there won’t slow progress.
I’ve learned the hard way that it’s no way to live to deprive yourself. Treats are an integral part of any balanced program.
I’ve tried treat days, treat meals, small treats in my every day, and all can definitely work. I’ve found that NOT planning treats has worked better for me than planning them. I prefer to eat clean and train consistently and when an opportunity arises to enjoy life with those I love and when it includes a treat, I go for it.
Instead of planning treats, I allow life to happen. There are more than enough spontaneous treat occasions and for me, it makes me feel less deprived and much more free if I am not restricted to a specific treat date and time. I’ve found that with all those spontaneous treat opportunities, there’s no need for me to plan my own treat meal or day – plus – that only puts emphasis on deprivation for me.
Flexibility, spontaneity and balance is where it’s at. But remember, you have to have already put in the work. So work hard, but play hard too. It’s the only way I’ve found to live. It’s where happiness is at for me.
Work hard, but play hard too.
Be consistent, but treat yourself.
