Extra Credit

Do you need some extra credit?  I personally did not meet all of my goals.  One night I ate after 8pm.  I just couldn't get dinner done in time with the girl's after school activities.  It happens.  In order to gain some "extra credit" and make up for my missed goal I added on a 30 minute cardio session to my week and cancelled out my missed goal.  If you didn't quite meet your goals try adding on some extra credit.  Examples of extra credit might be adding a 30 minute cardio session, adding an extra Pilates or Yoga day, cutting all carbs one day, and so on.  Get creative :->  Comment below and let me know what you are using for extra credit.
