...and eat it too!
Calorie counting goes to show that if you track, you can save up for special times. My husband begged me to go to Chick-Fil-A (Mr. Athlete has quite an obsession with the place...and their milkshakes!), so I said fine and I tracked my calories all day to make sure I had enough.
I was going to take a day off of working out to "rest," but after two days, I didn't want to fall into that trap of an excuse. So, after coming home from Chick-Fil-A, we watched "The Middle" on ABC (LOVE that show!) and then at 7:30, I said, "NO EXCUSES" and went to the basement and did me some Tae Bo Cardio Inferno. 45 minutes = 575 calories (may have been more as my HRM was having issues detecting the heart rate at first).
