Hello friends and happy Wednesday hump day :) A co-worker found my notebook yesterday... yay. Work was fine...but the good news is I came home to a nice clean apt, hubby cleaned the kitchen, vacuumed and made the bed. Hubby rocks he is such an awesome husband.
So I was thinking today how did I get the belly fat I hate...Well, I've always had a poochie the fat below your belly button. When I was in HS my family and I were doing the zone, and I started eating oatmeal for breakfast and salads for lunch, I really liked that way of eating and I found that I feel my best when I eat that way. I ran x-c and track, but I also ate a lot of "healthy" foods full of sugar.
I met my hubby when I was 23 I felt great but I still had that dam poochie despite my best efforts to eat healthy and exercise all the time. While we were dating hubby deployed to Iraq, man that was hard after he came home safely we got engaged right around Thanksgiving 07 for that Christmas we flew back to Philly with his sis and nephew to see his folks who had just moved there. I probably gained 10 lbs, eating, drinking and being merry.
Planning my wedding was very stressful for me and I continued to emotional eat and drink. On my wedding day I probably weighed 150-160 lbs I never weighed myself, but my clothes didn't fit. I was super stressed and hubby deployed again a month after we got married April 5, 2008. While he was gone I lost weight but still had that dam poochie. After he came home I moved down to CA to be with him, I exercised all the time at the awesome gym on base, but I couldn't lose that stupid poochie. Probably cuz we partied a lot and drank a lot of soda with rum. From what I have learned on the bfc if I had eaten less sugar from soda and other "healthy" foods I think I could have been skinny and sexy.
Today I still have that dam poochie but it is getting smaller. I feel good eating less sugar and better carbs. I also think that less drinking is the key to my success, it's been almost 2 weeks since I had a drink and I feel great. I feel better about myself as my clothes fit better than they have in a long time. Hubby and I are unsure when we are going to try for a family, but I want to develop good habits now so that I don't go crazy when I get pregnant. I watched one of Jorge's youtube video's with Dr. Oz and they said that pregnant women need higher blood sugar for the baby, so when I am pregnant I will probably eat more than 15g of sugar a day, but that's fine. So in a nutshell that's how I got to where I am today.
