Today I am keeping track of what I eat and making choices which will result in some fat-loss. I sound like a broken record, but I want to be happy and being able to slip on my jeans in the morning or anything in my wardrobe for that matter without worrying about whether there will be a muffin top or not in someways determines my mood for the day. It’s hard to be all positive and smiley when you had to go through half the wardrobe before you could step out the house to start your day.
I stepped on the scales this morning. I have been putting it off, putting it off but I decided last night I need to face the music. I will face the music every morning. If I take a break from stepping on the scales I derail. I am in denial. I can’t see the damage therefore I kind of ignore the damage I do.
While I know what I should and shouldn’t eat for a long term healthy future, I can’t but help LOVE eating sweets. The weekend just past we were away as we had some jobs to do our beach house and then we travelled to Rotorua for the NZSS championships which hubby was riding in. While at the beach house I indulged in one of my all time favourite bakery treats: an apple custard twist. It is a no, no as it is basically bread with extra sugar! I also indulged in wine, chocolate and ice cream too while there. In Rotorua I indulged in ginger crunch, sweets, chocolate, wine – it was bad! So today (and going forward) I am detoxing myself from sugar…. I find this such a challenge, mostly it is hardest in the afternoon. Basically once I have eaten lunch I look for the sugar fix. The biscuit, the pick n mix, the yogurt covered raisins. If I can get through this week it will become so much easier. While I plan to stay well clear of sugar today I’ve decided to make it a 30-day challenge given that Wednesday is 1st May it seems a good day to start a 30 day challenge! When I say no sugar, I intend to also eliminate artificial sweeteners too. It will be after lunch that will be toughest.
So that is my S.M.A.R.T goal – 30 days of sugar free!
