No matter the plan... we all Blog to Lose!
I was on such a nice streak of eating well and avoiding sugar. Why did I buy gummy bears? They were organic and fruit-sweetened, so I thought, good, not a sugar-chemical cocktail. I wanted to try out something I read about gummies being a good booster during long-runs.
I tried them on my 10-miler on Sunday, and they were definitely not better fuel than my Larabar. Which I could have guessed. We all know that I just wanted an excuse to have something decadently sweet!
So last night, I found myself up late, not sleepy, and wanting to put something in my mouth. I've done such a good job of not buying junky snacks, that there was nothing to munch on. Except those damn gummies. I finished off the bag, consuming so much sugar right before going to bed.
No more buying gummy bears for me!
Other than that, I've had some great eating over the past week. I've cooked more, used Pluto's salads as my "fast food" option when I don't feel like cooking. Sunday I made my crockpot chicken with bbq sauce, green beans cooked in tomatoes, and corn on the cob. It was also Monday's dinner. Monday and Tuesday breakfast has been my avocado smoothies, which I haven't taken out for a spin in a long while. Very satisfying and wholesome.
My weight is a puzzle. Two weeks ago, I was excited to be closing in on a milestone- only 3lbs to 40lbsLost. But the following week, I was 3lbs UP. This week, I am back 3lbs down. I'm on a mission to duel it out with these three pounds so that I can finally achieve this milestone.
It's taking sooooo long to lose this 10lbs, compared to the first 30, and it's daunting because I still have so far to go AFTER the 40lbs. Will weight loss continue to be this sluggish?? Geesh.
