Did really well today on my challenge. I even managed to not eat a protein bar today! I am trying to break my addiction to them. Could be worse, it could be chocolate chip cookies.
Sometimes really loving food sucks. My taste buds are way bigger than my stomach (or my caloric needs). I am not always of the mind that a taste or 2 is enough. Sometimes a taste or 2 just wets my appetite and gets the cravings really going. That is why certain foods can’t come into the house, like any type of Reese’s product. I can eat an entire bag of mini reeses cups without blinking an eye (and I think that is a pound bag).
John bought some dark chocolate peanut butter M&Ms the other day, and I told him that they must be super secretly hidden and not his usual hiding places (which I know), or I knew that I would be into them. I cannot eat just a couple of those and be happy. I will easily and happily eat a cup of peanut Ms. That is the food addict in me. So, he obliged and they are very hidden….. and I’m not looking… yet.
Had a good workout today. Did some swimming, then weights. I am just finishing up the NROLW Stage 1. I’ll post the totals this weekend sometime of my progress. I did barbell squat 110 pounds today! I have done 105, and thought I would try 110 on an extra set. It is surprising how much heavier 5 pounds is. I could only do 7 reps, I started to wobble on the last one and stopped, but think I did pretty good.
So – the big move will be happening probably tomorrow to move my blog to it’s own domain! I’ll make the announcement and then flip it over. The new blog is still a work in progress, but at least the basic frame is there. I need a good logo person to make me a butterly curling a dumbbell, though!
