WorkIt: Sugar Fueled

Workout: 25 min walk + 25 min weights

After this little proclamation, I was feeling high and mighty. That lasted about a week. Despite feeling great and eating cleanly and in control, sugar found it's way back.

It started with the BB's b-day party planning. A chocolate from the goodie bags, here. A taste of the dinosaur cookies, there. Some of the cool-whip dessert here, and a lot of the birthday cake over there.


After three days of not the most spectacular food choices, my body had enough. It cried out to me and I had a salad for dinner on Sunday. It was glorious. It's funny how greens can sometimes make you feel G'rrreat. Take that Tony the Tiger!

This week has been a lot better, but giving up on those sugar cravings is never any fun. I saw the below this week and thought, yes this could help.

I won't lie, it wasn't much help after the day I had yesterday. The BB was NOT a happy camper (all day) and I needed that Reese's peanut butter cup at the end of the day.

Sometimes, you just gotta give in and move on - or so I tell myself. Today is a new day, right?

How do you handle sugar cravings?

ADios :)
