Finding My Vices

Monday, November 26, 2012

This week's challenge is to avoid one vice that is standing between you and your health goals. I had thought to go completely Paleo and then forgot about that and got corn chips at lunch today. Doh! Otherwise, it was a great meal! Lettuce, steak, fajita veggies, and salsa.



I've also been drinking tea like crazy to avoid my biggest vice - milk and sugar. I don't put that much sugar in my regular coffee. It is mostly a problem when I get a drink at Starbucks. Even though I ask for less syrup, it is still more than I should probably be having! Just in case though, I stashed some Stevia packets in my purse in a plastic baggie. I've got coconut milk at that I can use as "creamer".



So for the rest of the week, I'm going to get back onto the Paleo thing again. Just an FYI, today I downloaded a free ebook on Amazon with a 21 day Paleo meal plan including 63 recipes. Check it out! I use the app on my phone to read these books :) These recipes will help me get through the week! www.amazon.com/gp/produc

So "the plan" is still the same as I mentioned last week:



There is a Body Pump class today at 5:15 that I would like to go to but I have a take home exam that is due this week. Plus, there are some big things going on that might take up a whole ton of time very soon. Things are just getting pretty stressful which means less time to worry about health and fitness. I plan on continuing to blog since it keeps me on track. I might take more pictures so I can just be like "see what I did and ate today!" just to save time. LoL!

Well, its time to me to go be productive. I have tutoring hour soon too. No one ever comes but I have to sit there and wait. I feel bad doing work while I wait because if anyone does show up, I don't want them to feel like they are interrupting me. Catch 22. Well, I'm off! Happy Monday!

    Looking good! I have similar goals. Keep up the great work!

    I get something like that at Chipotle too, depends on the day if I allow chips. I'd say that's a vice for me. A "naked" burrito hits the spot, I don't miss the tortilla anymore.

    I probably ought to give up the evening glass of wine for the week. At least on weeknights. Thanks for the tip on the free eBook, I just downloaded it!

    I always do that with the stevia packets cause when I go out to eat, I like to get tea or coffee and I know I will want to sweeten it up. Also, still thinking about what vices I can completely give up.

    Sounds like a great plan. My vice is definitely carbs. hum. Getting back on the treadmill this week. That always at least makes me feel better.

    My "vice" is carbs, plain and simple! Great idea about having a "stash" to be prepared for coffee. :-)
