1. It's Friday, duh.
2. It's the Friday before a long weekend.
3. College football finally kicks into high gear.
All good reasons to celebrate. Also all very legitimate ways that your nutrition and training plans can get off-kilter if you're not paying attention. Please please please do me a favor this weekend and
treat yourself right, yo.
Remember, a cheat day only cheats you! If you plan to tailgate, pack an ice chest of clean eats to munch on in between the occassional chicken wing or bratwurst or burger. Drink a bottle of water in between each beer to stay full but keep the calories at bay. And just for good measure, get out there early and run a few miles, take a spinning class, do Zumba, do SOMETHING to kick your metabolism in the rear and off-set some of that game food! ESPN College GameDay doesn't start until 9:00 am. You can burn a crapload of calories before then.
Have a great weekend, everyone, and stay healthy! Remember, you want to still fit into your favorite team shirt by the end of the season!
