I have been so stressed this last week. I couldn't even eat. That never happens to me! Food tasted bland and my stomach would hurt when I put food in it! The problem seems to be getting resolved, but it is still stressful. Just before all the stress hit me, the kids and I had a bad case of the stomach flu. So in a matter of a week we had the flu, had this super stressful weekend and then my oldest started her pre-k class this Monday.
With all of that, I somehow managed to lose two pounds. Gee, I wonder how?! Haha. I wasn't able to get on here and track my food or work out or anything but I did keep my one main goal! I didn't cave! I didn't have a caffeinated soda! I have been so tempted! And you know what is really weird? Because I haven't had and Diet Coke, I had this desert the other day that was loaded with Splenda, and I could taste it! My mom accidentally bought sugar free ingredients. I think my next goal will be to focus on clean, whole, "real" food. I always feel better when I am eating real food. Even with whole fat products, whole milk etc. As long as you are eating within healthy limits for your body, I feel it is just better for you. Who needs all the extra fillers that they put in things to make them low fat or sugar free.
Slowly working on adding more filling satisfying items to my regular eating to cut back on calories! Slowly but surely making these changes to my life. In the mean time, three weeks with out caffeine! That is a huge record for me! The longest in almost five years!!!

    Glad the stress is starting to alleviate. I had started using stuff like Splenda, but for me, I realized that I need to practice MODERATION. I don't want to substitute real with... well, "substitute." LOL

    Keep up the Awesome work and hope you feel better!!

    I'm so with you on the Splenda. Once I gave up Diet Cokes and artficial sweeteners they all started to tast kinda chemically to me.

    I can def tell when something has an artificial sweetener in it now big time. Just tastes bad.

    I use honey to sweeten almost everything with now and occasionally a little real sugar.
    I am also trying to focus on real food as well and its been amazing so far. People think my fridge and pantry are kinda bare but it works for me. Fresh fruit, veggies, whole grains, and meat. I include dairy so occasionally butter and yogurt as natural as possible. If I see a label with wierd ingredients in it now I try to just walk away. None of that stuff can be good for us.

    Now I will admit to my one main sin of whey protein powder. I don't even want to know what half the ingredients in it really are. lol emoticon
