Is it ok to reward yourself after a workout?

Asked a year ago

I’ve been doing the one and done program for 2 weeks now and everything has been going well. I’m a big fan of chocolate so I reward myself every time I complete a workout. Is this ok? My mom says it’s not the best to reward myself for working out! Any thoughts?

Yes, you can reward yourself after a workout! But in this case, I would have to agree with your mom about having chocolates as a post workout reward. Having a small piece of dark chocolate now and then is fine, since it has antioxidants that can have a positive effect on performance during exercise. But chocolate after every workout could mean that you might not see the results you want.
