As I mentioned before I made work a no junk zone and that worked again this week. On Friday I had a diet coke though, cheated a little with that. On the weekend I didn't splurge too much, but I didn't stick to the low sugar diet either. I had some sushi with edemame on Friday night (and a delicious cheap glass of wine), on Saturday I had some popcorn and a apple crumble "dessert" (it was a microwaved apple with oatmeal and honey). On Sunday I had a waffle, which didn't have as much sugar in the recipe as I was expecting. I made up for it by using maple syrup.
Tonight I ate my cabbage rolls and they were delicious! Totally worth the effort, and now I have leftovers for ever!! (All recipes are on my Nom's page!)
I really like this eating really well during the work week, and homemade meals on the weekend, so I can actually enjoy the treats (aka sushi, waffles) and not feel too guilty!
Also to help me not feel guilty...I did AWESOME with the gym/exercise this past week. I did Zumba, Body Pump, Walking/Body Flow, Body Jam+Abs+Power Walking and then Skating/Walking on Sunday! Definitely got my 150 minutes this week! The cool thing is now that I have been going to the same classes with the same instructors I am starting to get to know them, and they notice if I miss a class. Totally makes me accountable for going to the gym!
I have now started week 3 and now I get to eat cheese again! Oh happy day. I didn't notice any stomach issues since starting to eat cheese so I am sure I not intolerant or anything. That is the whole point of cutting out stuff for the first 2 weeks, is to see if you are allergic or sensitive to anything. So far dairy and I can be besties again :)!
Also, I am still hovering around last week's weight, so 5 pounds in 2 weeks is very good! I just hope I keep seeing results like that!
Anyone else loving the gym lately? Anyone else have a crazy crush on cheese??
