Beating the sugar

I have to be honest and say, I am NOT a fan of the Easter bunny. He is still haunting me

candy is everywhere!!!

candy

I. can’t. Stop. eating!!!!!!!!!!!!! It is very frustrating to get back on the wagon. I was doing so well

Even with all the food consumption, I have been making it to the gym for some great workouts. Mini crossfit, being sore from yesterday, and today was 30 min on the elliptical and 30 min walking on the treadmill at an incline

Later, Andrew and I went to the park and played baseball for 45 minutes

I have been looking at pinterest for inspiration…..

My next step…to make a “board” to put on my frig

Hopefully it will help me stay away…. (or maybe I should get some locks!)

Question for you:

How do you get back on track after holidays?

Time for some energy

Holy Moly. What a day. I had a bit of a revelation.

Yesterday, I had a sugar overload. I could NOT stop eating candy at work, and then I had the crash. Then I felt bad. Then I cried myself to sleep. Ok. I didn’t do that, but it made me realize something. I want to eat foods that give me ENERGY!

When I got up today, my goal was to eat healthy, not have the afternoon crash, and not get cranky with Andrew

Breakfast: 2 eggs, sausage, and paleo pancakes

Then I went crazy. Laundry, dishes, cleaned the kitchen and bathroom, and workout class at the gym. ALL BEFORE NOON!

The rest of the day, before I ate something, I said “Is this going to give me energy? or no?”

I went shopping, and made a green smoothie and brought snacks for the trip haha
