Before losing weight I would take the kids places and watch them have fun. Well on Saturday I had fun too. I road a pumpkin train. I used a slingshot to shoot pumpkins at various targets & yes I scored. Even won a popcorn ball and a toy lizard. Ha. I bungee jumped and was brave enough to do a BACK FLIP. Now I'm not saying it was the best back flip ever, but hey I did it! I've only lost 23 pounds so far, but I can definitely say I'm not the same person I was 8 weeks ago when I became serious about changing my life.
Today I ended the day in a very pumpkin way as well....with the help of Goodberry's. Honestly one of the best desserts I've ever had...pumpkin frozen custard, caramel, pecans. Now I absolutely love pumpkin ANYTHING & this was to die for! Really. It was that good. I know most of my subscribers are on a low sugar plan, but if you have a friend that's not just go with them and have a couple of bites. While it was soooooo delicious, my body reacted horribly to it. It is clear my body is screaming out, NO DAIRY, PLEASE! I won't go into any details, just trust me on this one. Another ingredient my body is not too keen about is gluten. While my body is not screaming out about it like dairy, I don't think it's good for me to say the least. So starting tomorrow I'm doing a little gluten free/ dairy free experiment to see how much better I'll feel without them in my life.
Now that I've had a super caloric dessert, I'm hoping my workout today helped counteract some of those calories. I usually try to end strong right before a weigh in....I did right up to the Goodberry's treat. I'll get right back on track.
