My healthy cheat!

For the past 3 months i have been trying to eat healthy, i was super strict and kept everything plain and boring. I HATED IT! during the week i was fine but during the weekend i fell off. I couldnt keep the diet for more than 5 days! It was frustrating. So for the past 2 weeks i have been trying to eat healthy but im not as strict, i enjoi my chicken breaded or with some sort of seasoning. I eat alot more veggies and i eat fruit once in a while. I also dont worry about my carbs the only things i worry about are keeping my calories between 1500 and 1700. I keep my calories at 1500 5 days of the week and on leg days i take in 1700 or less and i make sure that every meal has protein. During the weekend my boyfriend and I try to enjoi our food while keeping it somewhat healthy. Today we had this for our second meal. We got whole wheat buns , lean beef, and all natural ( reduced fat ) cheese :) i made sweet potato fries seasoned them with pepper and paprika. I had my burger with 0 calorie hot sauce my boyfriend had onions on his. You can have a cheat once a week, make it healthy:) avoid desserts and avoid over eating.

This shows you how much calories i took in for my meal! i have 4 more meals to go! ill make sure to keep it under 1500 calories. This was my 2nd cheat meal this weekend, im really lean so this doesnt hurt me at all. I only have 1 or 2 cheat meals a month. I avoid desserts and if i go out to eat i only eat half of what they give me! I DRINK ALOT OF WATER:)

  1. How do you make the sweet potato fries? I find them so hard to cut. Do you do anything to soften the potato first?
