As you know I had a much needed cheat meal on Saturday night. I had been looking so forward to this for WEEKS and it did not disapoint. We went to my favorite pizza place and we had a shrimp/canadian bacon salad w/ FULL FAT ranch and crackers and then we had some pizza dip, it was SO GOOD and that totally satisfied my chip/dip craving that I always love and then it was time for the mushroom and hamburger pizza. It was DELICIOUS and totally hit the spot. Here I am with my BIG grin and my pizza. I only ate 2 slices of a small pizza so when I left there I was FULL but not miserable. YEA!! I was really worried about eating myself sick but I did not do that.

Lizzie wanted her picture taken with her pizza. Isn't she the cutest?

THEN...we went to my favorite ice cream place which actually serves chocolate and vanilla frozen custard so it is very creamy. I got what they call a concrete with chocolate custard and choc. chip cookie dough mixed in it. It was SO GOOD. Heaven on earth I call it.

I so appreciated this food a lot more since it had been so long since I have had it. I still like my clean healthy food though but to eat this on occasion is such a treat and something that you should do for yourself. Just think this food used to be my everyday food. Seriously, there was a time after this ice cream place openened that I went there THREE times a week, then I finally made myself cut down to two and then one time a week and now even when not prepping for a competition I still only go about once every 2-3 months if that. Hmmm, and I wonder why I was over 200 pounds...GO FIGURE!

I think it's important to allow yourself a cheat meal even in your rigorous training mode.

Cheat meals are fun!!! They make the naughty foods more worth it!

Dawn, look at your face in this pic, and look at the one on the top of your page to the right, with the headband. You look so different, yet great in both pics!!
