The rise and fall of sugar. Sugar Be Gone.
Monday, February 18, 2013
I have been on a bit of a hiadus this past week for blogging.
I thought blogging would help me be accountable with all that over consumption of chocolate. Turns out it didn't work. I hate coming on here and admitting that I messed up but hey, I'm human right.
The day after my kick butt workout was Valentines day. The dreaded chocolate and treat day. Let me tell you my will power lasted about 5 minutes that morning. I woke up and found Bryan's mom made homemade cupcakes as our gift. Of course I ate one, it was mini but I still ate it. What a way to start my "healthy" day. Then at work we were having a party......that lasted ALL day. Snack was fruit and cupcakes. Lunch was homemade sandwiches, pizza and chocolate. Snack was chips, cupcakes and veggies. Dinner was heart shaped pizza with Bryan.
I have to admit the valentines part of my day was great. Bryan and I made dinner together and watched a movie. Perfect for us!
I woke up Friday morning feeling horrible. Headache, tired, just plain horrible. I wanted to call in sick I felt so ill, but I knew it was from that stupid sugar. Turns out every staff member felt the same. We have all been doing so great with no sugar that all of us felt that crash.
I made it a goal to eat what I brought and if I did slip then ONLY once. I did not slip at work! I ate delicious healthy food. When I got home after I ate dinner I allowed myself a few mini chocolates.
Saturday I did pretty good again. Healthy foods mostly. I did splurge on a homemade pizza sub and 2 mini eggs, but again I am working my way down to eating less chocolate. The best part I woke up feeling almost 100%.
Sunday. Another great day. I prepped my food for the week and only ate 3 mini eggs. I did have a digestive cookie, but that I will keep having every weekend. I woke up feeling great. No headache, lots of energy!
Now it is Monday. I have 3 days under my belt for delicious foods and limiting sugar. I can do it again. I woke up a bit tired today but that it probably because I went to sleep late and woke up early.
Sometimes it is hard to come here and admit my mistakes, but I know I won't get judged. I know I'll be supported. So there you have it folks. My week in a nutshell.
Also I've focused so much on nutrition I kind of left exercise In the dust. That will change tonight. Zumba! Woop.
