So this morning….
I overheard one of our clients say.
“today I get to cheat”
Of course I knew exactly what she was talking about.
But chose to play it dumb.
I asked “Cheat on what”
She said “cheat on my diet”
I then replied “oh wow, do you also get a cheat day”
She said “Cheat day???”
Well yeah “cheat on your wife/husband day”
(I wanted to get a reaction out of her. I know I’m evil ;)
She then looked at me like I was nuts.
She replied “of course not”.
That’s what I thought.
We wouldn’t dare think about cheating on our spouses.
Because we are committed to our RELATIONSHIP with our spouse.

When we commit ourselves to a healthy lifestyle
It simply means we are building a relationship with exercise and nutrition.
I guess the best way I can describe it is this…..
Your diet is a lot like your relationship with your spouse.

Having said that…..
What about variety.
We do need variety don’t we?
There are millions of ways to spice up your diet without adding unnecessary calories.
I guess the same thing can be said about spicing up your marriage.
(I recommend Dr. Ruth or Dr. Phil and NOT Jerry Springer)
Side note: I just shave my beard off once in a while and my wife thinks she has a new boy friend.
OK, too much information.
So let’s make a deal…..
Next time you think about that muffin, menudo, etc….
Am I willing to break up my family over this…
The answer is of course no.
Just something to think about.
Excellent post Sam.
