Fuck It Days

Have you heard of cheat days? Yeah? I don’t like that term, but I like the concept.

I’ve been tracking my calories and had made some progress (got down to 1550 per day!), but have stalled. My real goal is 1350, but that seems completely unattainable, because I find myself saying at least once a day, FUCK IT. I want that. I can eat that. Just Fuck It.

That daily indulgence (honestly, multiple times a day some days) is what makes 1350 seem impossible. I can’t control my ‘fuck it’ impulse.

So, I’m going to try something for 2 weeks. Have a “Fuck It Day” once a week where I don’t track calories. The thought being here is similar to smoking on the weekends. If I know I’m going to be allowed to do something soon, I can wait for it. So, when I see Russell Stover chocolates at work, which I don’t even like that much, I theoretically should be able to avoid them because I’ll get to eat whatever I want on my Fuck It Day.

Look forward to a menu of future Fuck It Days! Let’s see how gluttonous I can be.
