Okay, so you may have noticed I have been kind of slacker at updating my blog. Sorry about that. To tell the truth, I got mad at the site awhile back because I had this awesome post all done – it really rocked – and when I went to upload it, the site crashed and I lost it. I got mad, so I haven’t posted in awhile.
Want to know another truth? I have actually been doing really well on my healthy eating journey. I have just 3.6 pounds until I hit goal…something I didn’t think I was going to achieve. But I am almost there. I can taste. I can feel it. I want it
Now, that’s not to say that I haven’t had my ups and downs. I have. For instance, on the Fourth of July, I went crazy with eating sweets. Like seriously crazy. Unbelievably crazy. Want to know what I ate? Well, let’s see…if you count both Saturday and Sunday…I ate two 7-layer bars, two fudgey oatmeal bars, one other chocolate bar that actually wasn’t the best, but I still ate, two cupcakes, two of my favorite cookies (Lofthouse frosted sugar cookies), one Rice Krispie bar and probably a half a bag of Doritos. Yep. I did it. I ate all of that. Man, did I have a sugar high going.
But, I also ate tons of fresh fruit and tons of fresh veggies. And I didn’t eat any brats or burgers or BBQ’s (Sloppy Joes, whatever!). I exercised on Friday and on Saturday, I nearly ran three miles. I actually did a little more than three miles, but I walked part of it. I did a little bit of exercise on Sunday. I honestly think the exercise helped.
Oh, and believe it or not, I didn’t have any alcohol. Crazy, I know. I was the DD for our group on Saturday night. I love waking up and feeling wonderful the next day while everyone else doesn’t. Kind of fun, really!
Anyway, back to the journey. I am having fun. I have learned not to beat myself up when I eat crappy food, like on the Fourth holiday. I have learned to incorporate exercise, even though it is not my favorite thing to do. There is actually quite a bit I have learned. I will write more about that later as this post is getting quite lengthy.
