First off my week one of maintenance training has gone great.
Cycle: 1 hr 15 minutes
Strength Training: One full body and one lower body (will get one upper body in this weekend)
Yoga: This is what I looked most forward to but just did not happen. Long story but will absolutely take place next week.
Running: Will finish with 20 for the week. Trail running with hubby tomorrow. SO excited!
Abs: Managed to add this twice this week. Really need to do these daily. It is a sad area for me.
So now it is time to COME CLEAN about something… I LOVE sugar…sweets…anything covered in chocolate. It was not until I made contact with Jennifer that Suzanne turned me onto that I realized I needed help. Sure I eat healthy food and drink plenty of water. Anyone that is around me often enough would say that I do pretty good. So I am outing myself and coming out of the closet. I have days where I eat candy bars between work and home only to walk in the house and pour Hershey’s syrup directly in my mouth. This bad behavior has only help escalate my GI issues of the past year. It is a piece of the puzzle and one that will be the hardest for me to address. Starting Saturday morning I will begin a 14 days NO SUGAR diet. I will have to monitor all foods and really be aware of the hidden refined sugars that hide quietly in our foods just waiting to be eaten. No alcohol at all (not a problem) and no candy of any kind (big problem). I took pages of notes while I spoke with Jennifer and was just amazed at the amounts of information that she shared with me. I will be adding more healthy fats back into diet and adding lots more fresh veggies and fruits. Things we all know to do but tend to put off. My weight is good just have to get my body back in balance. Something has to be better than what I have been doing. This girl does not want her race to end due to GI issues again and I am ready to do something about it.
Wish me luck… my body is already on high alert status!!!!
