Turning point in my eating

Monday, April 22, 2013

After gaining weight over the last few weeks, I am moving back down. I weighed in at 127.8 this morning. :)

It was 8 minute Monday today- 1 set = 5 sit-ups, 10 push-ups, 15 squats

Last week I did almost 12 sets with a 25 lb vest, and 2 sets were on my toes. This week I did 14.5 ( no vest) and they were all on my toes. Whoo Hoo. It's week 3 of this boot-camp and I started at 10.5 sets on my toes. Last session it was 16.5 sets at my best but all my push-ups were on my knees. This boot-camp is all about strength and good form :)

Eating healthy has always been something I forced myself to do, but I still loved junk food. I ate healthy but I never loved the food. I have been craving one of those Six Dollar Bourbon burgers from Hardees / Carl's JR. I finally gave in. I ordered the 1/3 lb one and I got it lettuce wrapped so I could be as healthy as possible lol. it tasted SOOOOOOO gross. The sauce on it was sickeningly sweet. Like candied Hamburger. UGH. I made myself take two bites and then passed it to my very happy husband. He said it was amazing, so I knew it was just me.

I made me some Paleo "fudge" the other day, and it is soooo good. I feel so naughty eating it, my kids and husband tried it and they said it was not yummy. LOL. They all wanted me to make some with milk chocolate. It was coconut oil, almond butter, cocoa powder, and honey. It taste sweet to me, so i must be doing things right. My husband made dinner last night, and he breaded the chicken in coconut flour so I could eat it. It was so yummy, but it had a weird texture. The kids didn't love it, but he told them to get used to it because our family was going to keep adding more and more paleo foods in. I was grinning inside. I love that man. So thankful for his support.

I am blessed.

    It's funny how our taste change and after eating real food we can start to taste the chemicals and "junk" in the other stuff. I so happy your husband is supportive! Mine is coming around too :)

    It's crazy how when you eat healthy you only crave the healthy stuff after awhile. I remember one time I ate dominoes pizza the first time after a long while. I was so excited cause I tracked for it. I ended up being so sick and it tasted too oily or something.. Great job! Sounds like you have a great hubby too... emoticon

    I couldn't do this without the support of my hubby either :-).

    I love how my taste buds have changed in such a short period of time! I really do crave my healthy food now! Loving this SP thang ;-)~

    Well he is a keeper, for sure! How great that he doesn't mind helping you out of a difficult eating choice with the Carl's Jr burger, too! hah :) That was too cute! We love those lettuce-wrapped burgers, so I am glad to know the bourbon one is not worth having, because I would avoid it due to the sauce. The others are really good though, so if you haven't tried them yet, definitely do! Om nom nom! :)

    What a wonderful hubby!!!

    Great job at really making changes. It is funny how eating well can really make things not taste as good. I was craving pizza for weeks. We got some Saturday. It was just as delish as I hoped. Although I did lay off the "garlic butter" dipping sauce that is packed with fat, trans fats, chemicals and yuk.
