I’m Going To Cheat Today!


You must be thinking who would announce to the world that she is going to cheat. Let me clarify that your spouse/partner is not the only one you can cheat on…WHAT? If not cheating on a spouse/partner, then cheat on who?

In my case, cheat on what…you see, last year my hubby and I started an exercise regime and we have been consistent in keeping this new routine. It has been a year where we exercise 5 days a week each time for 30 minutes. We exercised at home following different exercise programme and after 8 over months, we do feel physically stronger but not much difference in our weight.

We then invested in an XBox 360 with Kinect (game console) where it has a device which can scan and detect your body movement so you can play without needing to use a controller (depending on the game). We then started to follow Nike’s Training Program. After a short 6 weeks, I saw results! Finally! It was worth the investment.

After 3 months of following the programme, it seems like we reached a cap on how much weight we can loose. We then discovered that it takes more than exercise if we want to achieve the desired figure, we have to look after our intake!

So this year we are going to change the way we eat. We were told to spread our meals by increasing the frequency and decreasing the portion size. To make better choice by eating more healthy food. So bye-bye to fast food, junk food and comfort food?

Well, yes and no. You see 6 out of 7 days, we will watch our diet and 1 day is set aside for us to indulge in what we want to consume, we call that day “Cheat Day” and it is today.


Today is also my Father-In-Law’s birthday and we will be celebrating him with a 9 course dinner and surely a birthday cake.

So there you have it, this is my confession…I’m cheating today. Cheating on my DIET.
