Working for my reward!

Today is Smashburger Day at our house! It is the last day of school and we are going out for lunch. I promised the kids that once I could burn at least 500 calories in a one hour workout session, I'd treat us to our favorite burger joint.
I made it that number because that is about 3/4 the caloric count of my favorite Baja Burger. It is important to remember how much work it takes to burn off a splurge, but it is also important to give in to the rare splurge. I will also choose to have the veggie fries, rather than the delicious smashfries, but it is all about moderation and I don't think I'll feel at all deprived.
Well, for about a month now, I've been able to burn those 500 calories, SO we've set up today for the celebration that I've been working towards since January.
The good news is, since I've been expecting this day, I've been good all week and the scale dropped down a bit further. Good thing too, because I may need that extra cushion!
Enjoy your day!
