I have been effectivley watching what I eat, and exercising. <br />Tomorrow is my first day of my last year of university (WAHOO!) and my FI made me a XL cookie and wrote on it; “One more year! Mourn the loss of your summer holidays!” It was cute. Aaaand… I ate it all. <br />What can I do now. 🙁 Go for a longer run? I slipped, I shouldn’t have finished it all. 🙁

Haruyou: Congrats on the healthy eating and exercise regimen, AND starting your final year of school! Since no one is perfect, cut yourself a little slack. One cookie does not a regimen break. Just eat clean tomorrow and you’ll be fine!!

Haruyou: I think you are overreacting a little bit. When dieting you should still have treats and food you enjoy, like cookies. You don’t need to feel guilty unless you do this everyday. Just relax a little bit it’s no big deal!

Haruyou: it’s good for your metabolism to have a boost of calories now and again! But you could always go for a longer run or something if you want to balance it out. I ate a couple slices of pizza last night and totally blew my daily calorie goal, so I did a run today along with the mountain bike ride I had planned with my husband. As long as you don’t get super obsessive about making up for any perceived slip, I think that’s a perfectly healthy way to approach it. But really not necessary either!

Girl, if I have learned anything about eating healthy and working out, it is to never completely deprive yourself. Have little treats now and then so you don’t go crazy. You will be fine and I am sure you look great! Just don’t let one off day completely throw you off track.

One cookie won’t hurt. the key is to stop at one.

Haruyou: I’m going to guess you’re over-restricting your diet if you felt the need to eat the whole cookie (assuming it’s as big as you say!). If you let yourself have a small cookie (<100 calories), even every day, you’ll be better off than not allowing yourself any until you binge on hundreds of calories of cookies. Everything in moderation!

Definitely don’t beat yourself up over a cookie, no matter how xl. If that was the only thing you had that was like a treat then I think you’re doing very well.

Yep. You ate it, I’m guessing you enjoyed it, now forget about it and keep going with your healthy eating and exercise. One cookie, no matter if it was a big one, won’t set you back 🙂

Being on a diet doesn’t make food bad or wrong or something you should feel guilty about. It just means that most of the time you are careful about what you eat so that the overall is better than what it was before. If you beat yourself up like this every time you have a treat you will end up finding the diet harder to stick to becasue NO ONE can say no all the time to everything. A treat is a treat, enjoy it, move on and don’t do it too often, not because it is bad but because it will stop being a treat.

RunnerBride13: I don’t think I’m restricting THAT much?… I still each what FI eats, just smaller portions, and adding in healthier options for myself…

Haruyou: One cookie won’t ruin everything, unless you allow this slip to demotivate you for other occassions. If you’re going hard on the calorie restriction though, make the next day no or low carbs. Alternatively do a fast day (500 calories total, over 2-3 meals).
