Expectations vs. Reality of Starting a Spring Break Diet

It’s that time of year again ladies and gents! Spring semester is upon us which means Spring Break is right around the corner. It’s time to put that doughnut down and run your little heart out at the gym. Although, we all know how that’s really going to go…

Expectation: You tell yourself you are going to be really good about eating healthy this semester! You’re not going to touch sweets until after Spring Break and you’re going to drink a green smoothie every day.

Reality: You end up eating a doughnut the size of your head after walking past Dunkin' Donuts on the way to class. 

Expectation: You’re going to go to the gym EVERY single day and get super toned and fit!

Reality: You go to gym once…get super sore the next day, and never step foot back into that hellhole again.

Expectation: You’re going to plan out all of your meals and make sure that you're eating a lot of fruits and veggies.

Reality: Gummy snacks count as fruit, right?

Expectation: You have a little hiccup in your diet but no worries, you know you can jump right back in and continue on your healthy path.

Reality: You “accidentally” let a birthday cake flavored Oreo fall into your mouth which then turns into the whole sleeve of Oreo’s 5 minutes later. You're already on a roll, might as well eat that Ben and Jerry’s half baked ice cream that's been sitting in the freezer while you’re at it too. 

Expectation: You plan to do crunches and sit-ups every single day to get those six pack abs!

Reality: They only six-pack you have by the time Spring Break comes around is a six-pack of beer.
