All last month, I ran, started back Insanity and ate 80% clean. So I should have of lost a ton of weight…NEGATIVE. I gained 4 pounds ( I’m hoping it’s muscle). I got on the scale and feel like this.
I almost resorted back to eating a whole box of Cinnamon Toast Crunch but I have to remember a fitness quote I saw on Tumblr.
While I like to see results ASAP, I have to remember that it takes time but I do have to “own up” to my own eating fails– snacking is killing my progress. Instead of me snacking on this ALL the time…
I may cheat and snack on this (they are organic but still)…
It doesn’t look like a big deal but check this out. I plan to have 1 cookie but that quickly turns in to 5 cookies. If the cookies are 100 calories each, I’ve just added 500 calories to my intake and within a week I’ve gained 5 pounds. ((Sigh))
So in an attempt to reign back in my snacking, I’ve thrown away every processed snack in the house (all while getting the side eye from my husband) and I am VOWING to stay in the game. I am exercising enough BUT I HAVE TO GET THIS EATING UNDER CONTROL. As a result of my snacking I’ve noticed that my skin is starting to break out. So for the next 8 weeks, I have vowed NO MORE PROCESSED SNACKS, up my water intake AND I am going to do meal replacements at least once a day with either juicing or meal replacement smoothies. I am also going to post a lot more about my daily battles with working out and eating–because this weight loss journey is no joke. I’ve already lost a considerable amount of weight but unless I “reign in” this snacking all of my goals will be GONE. I’ve worked to hard to let some cookies (as good as they are) get in my way..
