Hello friends, so much to say I'm not sure where to start. I guess I have to say thanks for the support, I chose not to eat the cake for me and not because I knew I shouldn't or to be able to tell everyone I didn't. Making the bfc a lifestyle has had some big challenges, mostly in the way I view food mostly food that is belly bad. In the beginning I knew beer was high in carb but I drank it anyway and a couple of times too much. I have allowed myself to indulge in cake at work. I think it's ok to have those things once in a while, but the problem was I noticed that one cheat would lead to another and I would justify all of it. Sound familiar to anyone?
I love the bfc community, being able to share and connect is the reason I am still doing the bfc, because there have been plenty of times I felt like nothing was happening. My hubby helps keep me grounded during my times of doubt. The weight is coming off slowly, but I think the lifestyle changes are the best. I avoid fake sugar, limit real sugar and chose better carbs in smaller portions.
Marjie, thank you for sharing you are such a sweetie, and I appreciate you checking up on me. Congrats to you for losing your muffin top and keepin it off. Reading the bfc blogs is a great way to keep your head in the game. When I first started the bfc I was looking for a blog from Jorge and that's how I stumbled upon Amber's blog..I found her to be more helpful than the bfc book and from her blog is how I found the rest of the girls and was inspired to start my own blog. Crazy about your daughter and the shampoo causing her rash, I tried the shampoo you are talking about several years ago and didn't like it because I felt it was getting rid of my natural highlights. Thank you for sharing, I never thought to look at shampoo as a source of facial skin problems.
Today was my second day of zumba, and it is growing on me, no wonder it is so popular. I downloaded the cardio party and I am excited to try that out...but the 20 min one is a realistic start for me. And thank you Helen, I didn't think it was gonna be ok to drink coffee so I guess I can wait until morning cardio is done. I am so proud of the example you are setting for all of us.
Tomorrow we leave for our trip to see hubby's best friend for his 30th bday. I am excited to see him and his wife and to just get out of town for the weekend. They have a whole foods so I am going to try some of the products I can't get here, and if I like them I will put in a big order at amazon. I want to try natures hollow preserves, joseph's cookies and clemmys...I am super excited for clemmys. I am going to take food so I can be on track with the bfc. I don't want to make a big deal out of what I am doing, but I do want to feel good about what I ate come monday morning. I am not looking to cheat because it was a special occasion. Anytime I have cheated for what I told myself was a special occasion has set me back a week. You know what I mean?
I told hubby we need to get some new pics this weekend to share, (he doesn't like this pic of him with his blemish on his forehead lol) Well, I guess that's all for now...I hope everyone has a belly good weekend :)
