I don't have a set rule that "saturday is my cheat day", but I do allow myself a day off every now and then. (Too many lately, but I'm getting back on track.) I agree, a high protein lower calorie breakfast and lunch (egg white omelette and salad greens with some chicken or tuna maybe?) and enjoy the evening. You aren't on a "diet" after all, you're changing the way you live. Life should be fun. Hit the gym tomorrow, it'll be fine.
I agree, decide what you're going to order before you go. Another helpful trick: ask for a box to come WITH the meal, put half your entree in the box, set it under the table, and treat yourself to a really nice meal again tomorrow. Or ask the waiter if you can get a "lunch portion" or order off the lunch menu? Some restaruants will do that if you want a smaller portion to start with.
If I keep starting over, eventually it will stick, right?
