Pick a day or two in the week and have a treat that is planned, such as a dessert or entrée that you especially enjoy. The extra 100-200 calories you've eaten will then be easily burned off with a 1-2 mile walk. Other ideas include:
- Challenge yourself with a 5K run or walk.
- Treat yourself to a massage.
- Try meditating, yoga or an old-fashioned nap.
- Take care of yourself as often as you can.
