I mentioned the other day how I always used to struggle with eating too little and then in turn eating too much because it just wasnโ€™t sustainable. โฃ

Iโ€™d always do great Monday through Friday and then the weekends would hit and Iโ€™d pull myself completely off track. โฃ

I have a cheat meal. โฃโฃ

Iโ€™d stop tracking. โฃโฃ
