Just like a good tango we move forward and backwards in maintenance. With a little over a month into maintenance under my belt, I remind myself that each day is a choice and a decision to make good or bad ones. Can I have pizza? Heck yes I can, but maybe only one slice and only once a week. Do I want a glass of wine? Of course, but I won’t indulge in it every day. Moderation my friends is what is working for me and I am finding my balance in the dance.
Just like any good dance…there will be dips and there will be rises. What has worked for me is making 1 meal a week my cheat meal and balancing it out with some good workouts several days a week. This is the rest of your life and it is one worth living each day.
