Struggling to make healthy choices
Sunday, January 20, 2013
Still trudging toward finding that perfect balance of healthy food and exercise. I find my body crying for fatty foods after a long workout and I didn't even do that much today. Yes I took my boxer dog Roxie for a 2.5 mile walk today but it really didn't feel like that much of a workout I guess b/c my son was riding his bike just ahead of me while Roxie and I walked. I am such an ice cream addict and wish I could find a way to kick the habit. I have already kicked the soda habit but last night we had pizza night and that was a complete disaster. We always have to order 2 pizzas b/c my husband and son love pepperoni and cheese pizza and it's not my thing anymore. So I ordered a pizza with beef and canadian bacon aka ham on it. I figured since I only got thin crust with extra sauce and light cheese I was doing well. WRONG! I got on the scale this morning and I had gained back what I lost and then some. Ugh! It is so hard to find the right balance to lose weight and still feel happy. Hopefully someone who reads this can help me out here I'm really struggling. I love fresh fruits and veggies but with my husband having IBS it makes cooking really difficult b/c he can't eat super healthy as it upsets his system. Walking the tightrope is getting harder and harder. I don't want to drag my BLC team down by not losing consistently but I am really lost at this point as to what I should do. HELP!
