Dy 129,130 & 131

I have learned some lessons this weekend. Pizza Hut is a no no and in more then one way. My stomach could not take it and when I came home I was shocked to see the fat. Pizza Hut is something new on base so I thought that I would try the small personal pizza. I think I will stay away from there.

I am still looking for something else to drink that I like besides water. The Healthy Balance juice I bought awhile back. Well I wasn't paying attention and it has Splenda. Part of this journey is weight loss, part is eating better and part is cutting out processed & unnatural food out. So if it has Spenda or any other artificial sweetener then I am not eating it. I am trying to like green tea. I don't like it hot or warm. Cold is OK. I am going to keep trying this though.

Today I did workout video knowing that I had a lot to do. Tomorrow is Zumba and the weather better not stop me. I haven't been in over a week and I am wanting to sweat and sit in the sauna. It is so therapeutic. I used to hate to sweat but now I love it. It makes me feel so good.

I put on pants today that I haven't worn since last winter that were getting to tight. I decided to try them on and now they are to big. I decided to try on a shirt that I had bought from the juniors section last summer. Xlarge. Well now it big. Not get rid of big just bunch in the middle big!!! I had the biggest smile on my face getting ready this morning. I felt a sense of excitment and new energy. Something that I have needed.

"Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan 'press on' has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race." -Calvin Coolidge

I like Fuze drinks (the "slenderize" line) which basically taste like watered-down fruit juice. Ten calories per serving.

But mostly I just stick to water, though I'll admit it's easier to drink it when the weather's warmer.

Pizza Hut is baaaaaaaaad news, haha. I'm so excited that all your clothes are getting too big!

Hi Sarah!!

I hear ya girl!! Pizza Hut for me too is a super slippery slope. I had some breadsticks a couple weeks ago, and started craving sugar like crazy again... ugh! So nope nope for me too!!

Have a beautiful MOnday!

Oh and how about tea?

I drink a ton of herbal teas with no sweetener in it.

Just a thought!

Fran said...

Herbal tea is in various tastes available these days, maybe an idea? Or put some lime or lemon in your water to give it some taste?

Have fun at Zumba tomorrow!

Must have been a great feeling that the pants were too big!
