As many rounds as possible, in 20 minutes:
15 box jumps (24/20)
15 push-upsYou know what I’m talking about. You’re at the grocery store and it’s the end of a long day, so you tell yourself, “I’m going to treat myself to that brownie because I deserve it.” Or you’re out with friends and you say to each other, “We’re having fun, let’s treat ourselves.” And it’s okay, because you’ll split it. Or maybe it’s a coworkers birthday. Or it’s a full moon. Or whatever else you tell yourself.
How many times per week do you really end up “treating” yourself? Is it actually a treat or is it a regular part of your diet?
And is it really “treating” yourself? It doesn’t do your body any good. In fact, in all regards except a moment of instant gratification, it’s the opposite of treating yourself.
As we head into the holidays, think about your approach to treats. Do you have a strategy? Do you have a partner to hold you accountable when you need it? What if you made it through a whole week without treats — can you think of a way to ACTUALLY treat yourself to something nice?
