Every Monday I come on here and complain about how much I ate over the weekend and about how my weight is up blah, blah, blah. I’m sick of it. I’m sick of overeating on the weekends and undoing all the hard work I’ve put into losing 30 pounds.
I think it’s all about baby steps. And my first baby step is to cut way back on the sugar. I eat too much sugar. I have a huge sweet tooth. When I eat sugar, it makes me crave more sugar. Then before I know it, I’ve eaten ten Hershey kisses and half a Dove bar. And once I start on the treats, I have a hard time stopping. I’m not the kind of person that can eat two Hershey kisses. I need five. So, for me, it’s better not to start with even one Hershey kiss.
So, my mini goal for this week is to cut back on the refined sugar – no candy, ice cream, chocolate, etc. Even though fruit and yogurt have a lot of sugar, I still plan to eat those because they’re a whole lot healthier than candy hearts. It’s all about baby steps. I’m hoping that by controlling my sugar intake it will help me to eat a bit better on the weekends.
Okay, enough complaining….
I have to share my intense love for the Golden French Toast coffee.
If you have a Keurig, I recommend buying it! I usually like darker roasts, but this flavor is delicious!
- BodyPump – 60 minutes
- 1.12 miles treadmill, ran
Since today is President’s Day, there was no school and the kids came to the gym with me. I don’t like leaving them in the kid’s room for too long, but I wanted to get a bit of cardio in after BodyPump, so I just ran a quick mile on the treadmill.
The worst picture ever but the cutest tank top:
I found these workout tanks at Meijer over the weekend on sale for only $7.50. This one is gray and hot pink, and I also got one in hot pink and neon yellow. I think they’re so cute, and they were cheap. Who knew you could find cute workout clothes at a grocery store?
I’ve also heard that Costco has some pretty good workout clothes.
I used half of the Peanut Butter & Co. package on toast yesterday for breakfast, and I used the other half in my smoothie for lunch today.
Yes, that is a Yogurtland spoon that I’m using. Reduce, Reuse, Recycle
In my smoothie:
- peanut butter
- plain Greek yogurt
- almond milk
- crushed ice
I also topped it with a tiny bit of granola for some crunch.
On a totally unrealated note…the new season of the Amazing Race started last night! Anyone watching?
- Do you struggle with anything? How do you deal with it?
- Where do you usually buy workout clothes? Regular clothes?
- What was for lunch today?
- What TV shows do you watch?
