I try to make sure I make time for my own personal goals outside of work. I believe you have to draw the line somewhere or you can become completely consumed by your 9-5.

I also like to allow myself naughty foods. (When not prepping for any competition) But try to limit it to one day a weekend. I don’t believe it is healthy to deprive myself completely of foods that give me pleasure.
