The sugar thing? I might of been jumping ahead of myself. I'm not ready for that yet.

BUT, I've decided to get more on board with the portion control instead. I've been eyeballing it, and I know not well enough. I'm going to get the portion control thing in check, and limit sugar. I've been doing good with limiting sugar. I don't sit down with 5 cookies anymore.. so I think that's where I need to start. Do the sugar detox when I got things more in line. it's too much right now. I'm also working on turning everything over to light or sugar free, which I know, some of those things can bring thier own trouble, (like sugar free items can be really high in carbs, things that say fat free normally have tons of sugar) and I've been watching that too. I see people buying the "diet" frozen meals and wonder if they know how high they are in salt and carbs.. just because they are low in calories doesn't mean they are a good thing to eat.

I made some chocolate chip cookies for the kids last night, but I put splenda in them.. (minus the chocolate chips, I'm still looking for sugar free chocolate chips. lol) but atleast they were a little bit better than normal, and they are tasty, I've had a couple of them.. then instantly thought about this whole no sugar thing.

I'm just not there yet. but I will be, someday.

This is just a busy month. I need to get our house in order, get finances in order, do a sugar detox and a no spend month, and AHHHHHHHHH.. lol enough said. I think I'll spread it out over the next 6 months,.. This month? house/life organization.

We need to go though a different area everyday and declutter, donate, and organize the area. Possibly pack it up if it's something we won't need until after we move.

Febuary- No spend month (also tie that into the finances/bills organizing)

March - We should be moving this month (we might delay it till late march/april hoping to find a rental that is in this area so we don't have to transfer the kids into a different school with 3 months left. I wish I would of had the forsight to tell them june so they could do the rest of the year at their school. moving with kids with anxiety/autism, isn't fun.. I imagine. lol)

After that, Whatever comes next. I want to start training for a 5K in june and I hope to be alot thinner, but there's going to be alot of stress over the next few months, and I'm hoping to pull though without my emotional eating self porking on everything I see. lol

I'm hitting the gym twice today. went this morning, did the Hill function on the treadmill it got me up to a 6.6incline, but I pushed it in the last 3 minutes though and went up to 4mph (never go above 3.2) and I did a 12incline. (normally I don't see 3) I wanted to see what it was like at that speed/hill. lol I did it at seperate times so no, I wasn't running up a hill for 3 minutes, I probably would of died. lol I did the incline for a minute and the speed for almost 2. I couldn't run though. I was just walking incredibly fast. lol I was scared to run.. I don't know why.. I just couldn't get into the run groove. I'm not sure how people run on treadmills, but I'm not one of those people yet.. 230lbs is probably why I'm not one of those people. lol I hope to be someday, today I'm just trying to retain balance without holding on. I walk like I'm drunk on that dang thing, even at 2.5mph. lol

Alright. So I have a game plan. Sorry to get everyone excited about the sugar detox. You'll read about it someday I imagine. :)
