Since we left for vacation today, I decided to go ahead and weighin today and count it as a week. Then I'll restart Monday weighins when I return from the beach. I love to weighin on Mondays because it helps keep me accountable on the weekend. So in the last 5 days I lost..........1 pound, which I am SO HAPPY to report. Yea! Woo-hoo! I'll take every little bit.
Tonight I did have some oh so not good for me snacks: some boy scout caramel popcorn, then some peanuts. I actually felt sick after the popcorn. I learned my lesson. I don't ever want any more. After I ate it, I looked at the ingredients....these are the 1st three: SUGAR, CORN SYRUP, DEXTROSE!!!! It's bad enough to have sugar as a 1st ingredient, but to have it as the 1st three. Geees. Get this! The side of the bag says this: Better flavor. Better for you. What? I think they're on crack! Then I had a few peanuts and felt better. Since we were travelling, we had an early dinner and I became too hungry. Anyway, my husband laughed like a sinister laugh cause I fell off the wagon. Sometimes I think he wants me to fail. I think because he eats a lot of junk, he wants me right there with him. Any of y'all run into that with friends and family?
I'm going to put this behind me and not let it derail my healthy efforts. My husband does support me and help with the kids so I can exercise, but sometimes makes fun of my not being able to do it at the same time. So does he really support me? Maybe. Maybe not?
Bottom line....I'm celebrating my victory over the 1 pound and putting my bad snacking choice behind me. I think I'm going to the grocery store tomorrow and buy some yummy tea. Which leads to my question of the day....
QUESTION OF THE DAY: What's your favorite low or no sugar hot tea? I love the cinnamon spicy ones.
Thanks for reading and listening.
Be healthy. Be strong.
Have a great weekend.
