Ok, here’s putting it out there to make me more accountable. I am going to work on cleaning up my diet. I eat a pretty good diet with lots of veggies, fruit, greek yogurt, eggs and tofu. But I’ve been slipping into bad habits for awhile now.
When I was pregnant I ate really well. I didn’t withhold calories, but I did withhold excess sweets and junk food. After I had Jasper I lowered my carbs to take off my baby weight and it worked. I did really good watching my rice, pasta and bread portions for about a year and a half. Over the last year though, I’ve been pretty weak around my faves: sweets and carb-y snacks. I’ve been feeling a little softer than normal in the middle lately, and for a few weeks I’ve been telling myself I need to clean things up.
So what does that mean for me? Well, I never want to deny myself having fun in life. Jasp and I will still get cupcakes, but that is my treat for the week…not a treat for the day. And, when your husband brews fantastic beer, no sense in saying no beer, but once again, much limiting. On the day to day, I’ll go back to limiting carbs. I do really well when Mike is out of town, but it is so true when you are married/ live with someone you tend to eat more. It’s soooooo easy to say “let’s get ice cream!”
Anyone with me? Anyone need to rein in their sweet tooth?
This does mean one small pumpkin spice latte a week…NOT two a weekend. Looks like some pumpkins lives will be spared.
