Week 5

I despite having a horrible week was able to lose 1/2 a pound, and I will take it. I was so worried about gaining. I don't know what happened. I just couldn't get it together. I didn't do a proper shopping trip last week. I didn't stick to anything on my meal plans. I actually ate horrible. Now mind you I didn't over eat, I just ate things I should not have eaten. I am hoping that this week is a whole lot better. I think that I am sick of winter and it wasn't a very fun winter for me. I will be glad when it is over and I can get outside more. I hope that we have a great spring and summer this year and not being stuck with rain. 

Heres to a new and better week!

The Sugar Monster

I have been living clean with out sugar for over a month. I have used honey and agave nectar to sweeten things and very little of them. We have swapped cake and cookies for apples and oranges salty crunchy chips for celery with peanut butter, or crisp crunchy veggies My whole family has gotten used to not eating refined sugars. I have seen the possitive affects of our new lifestyle.......
Yesterday was Valentine's Day and The Sugar Monster came out of hiding.......
I made really decadent cookies for my daughter for her school party plus there was a few extra for home. My son came home bouncing off the walls from his party, my daughter came come crashing and my youngest was horribly lazy and moody. They would not cooperate with me, they were very emotional, crying at the littlest things, yelling and screaming at one another. I too had had a few cookies and did not eat properly yesterday. I felt so angry and I thought that I was going to explode at the littlest things.
I never want to feel like that again. my kids don't want to feel like that either. I told them that we are not going to eat that junk again. I never realized what a negative affect sugar has on one persons body. Thank goodness today is back to normal. I am throwing out the rest of the cookies that are in the house. we don't need those in our bodies!

Week 4

Happy Valentines Day  Everyone!

Today is my cheat day, although I feel really guilty about it. I have  been doing so good. I am down another 3 lbs this week I have also lost a total of 7.75 inches off my body. I swam laps in my mom's pool for over an hour on the weekend and I am going to finally do my fitness challenge this week. I was finally able start wearing other shoes other than my runners which I am very happy about! I wanted to walk to school today but the kids had temper tantrums and were dawdling really badly today. but tomorrow is another day and I am going to have to work off this Valentines day dinner and the chocolate milk chocolate chip and toffee bit cookies( yes all that is in one cookie) that I made and ate today . I had made them for my daughters class and she came home with extras i couldn't resist them I haven't had cookies in over a month and they were worth it. As I said that I am going to be working this off tomorrow I plan on doing an hour of cardio and  a 1/2 hour of strength training Turbo Jam here I come!  

Have a great week!

Week 3

Yay ME!! Down 2 pounds this week. I have Lost 7 pounds in the last 4 weeks. 3 of them were from the week before the challenge started when I was able to exercise.My foot is feeling a lot better this week I am going to start getting back into cardio this week and will focus on my abs as well. I was beginning to get stir crazy. It has been so nice outside too. I have missed tobogganing this year with the kids. I hope to walk to school sometime this week hopefully it will be nice enough for at least one day.

I Had my first cheat day last week on Caleb's birthday.and I didn't really even cheat except for I had more carbs that day and of course Birthday cake. Yesterday was the Super Bowl and while my family ate hotdogs and chips I ate a very healthy safe corn-free Chicken burger and BBQ chips. These chips are the most yummy low fat chip out there they are called POP Chips they are Popped, not baked or fried. and come in all sorts of flavors best of all most are corn free. For 29 chips there is 180 calories and 6gs of fat. You can only buy these chips at Shoppers Drug Mart, Costco or Superstore or online they used to just come in the big bags but I saw single serving sizes bags Saturday for the first time!.
Have a good week
