Iíve had a couple of not so good eating weeks recently- my sonís first birthday, cravings for sweets, emotional eating and a desire to just eat things because they look good or were around, not because my body needs it.
Iíve tried to compensate for this by doing more cardio, working in toning to my Zumba routines, going to yoga class and practicing more yoga at home.
I feel stronger and more limber and Iím beginning to actually get some muscle definition in my thighs and forearms, but have gained some weight.
For a while, I thinking along the lines of ďmuscle weighs more than fat, Iím building muscle, so this is okĒ but have decided that this is NOT ok. True, lean muscle take up less ďspaceĒ than fat, but for me, this was a cop out.
Also, I was finding that after a night of eating sweets or refined carbs, I would wake up groggy and tired- as if I had a sugar hangover.
I know that when I eat sweets or refined carbs, I just want MORE and find it hard to stop. And, itís not doing anything good for my body.
Time to keep up my new exercise practices and go back to my vegi laden, high protein eating. I know that I know how to do this- I just need to do it!
