You’ve heard your friends say it, your family say it, and likely even complete strangers say it – “It’s my cheat day!” I even heard my fitness instructor say it to my whole class last week, which is what sparked this somewhat ranty blog post.
Cheat day? What does that really even mean?
OK, I know what people mean when they say it…They are describing a day where they can eat whatever they want and not feel guilty about it, because it’s not something they would normally do. It’s a day without restrictions.
That doesn’t sound so bad: You eat healthy most days, but once in a while you like to have a day where you “allow” yourself to just eat whatever you want without worrying about your waistline. Maybe there is even an excuse, like a friend’s wedding or your birthday. Does that sound about right?
