Motivation Monday!Hello everyone, I am so happy to share that the past several days have been very successful for me!!! I have stayed strong and I haven't eaten any snacky junky food at work. Even though there has been plenty of opportunity do so. Sometimes I feel like I work in Sugar City in the State of Carbohydrates, there is always something sweet and very belly unfriendly. I keep telling myself that I just need to stay away, no cheating allowed. I have realized that it is just easier to stay away all together than to have just a bite or a taste of anything, doing that just makes me want to eat more.

7g of sugar in these mini sugar cookies
Last week when I was cheating at work I ate one mini lofthouse sugar cookie, I thought it's just a mini cookie and when is the last time I had a sugar cookie. I totally justified it to myself. Anyway, that one stinkin mini sugar cookie had 7g of sugar. Eating that much sugar in one little cookie is not what I need to be doing to get where I want to be. I want to be healthy, fit, toned, firm, happy and at a good pre-pregnancy weight for the time that hubby and I start trying to have babies. All of this requires putting in work, setting goals and sticking to them. Tomorrow we are having another pot-luck at work I'm sure there will be tons of tempting goodies, but I am in a better place than I was during last week's pot-luck, and I know I won't be cheating with those mini sugar cookies.

  1. I'm also always shocked to see the sugar content in what I thought was a super small treat (like a mini cookie) when I get home and log it into My Fitness Pal. I always say to myself - it wasn't even that good and it made me feel icky after I ate it!!! I could have had a few pieces of chocolate coconut fudge or a protien bar for half the sugars, some nutritional value, and more satisfaction.

    I know you'll do great at the potluck - I love what Rosalie says... if you're feeling tempted at a function, pick 1 "non" BFC food that you're wanting, have 1-2 bites of it and fill the rest of your plate with BFC friendly items. Then you won't feel deprived. This has worked well for me.

    Have a great day, stay strong, and thanks for posting. :)

  2. Katie, Katie, what are we going to do with ourselves??? Maybe the weather will change how we feel and look at food. I remember last year when you were excited about wearing your bathing suit at the river. I have a party on the 13th that I will be wearing my suit all day and I am thinking OMG!
    We will succeed!!!

  3. Those darn cookies!
    ...thanks for the uplifting words Katie.
