This week I haven't been as 'good' at watching what I eat and making it to the gym. And when I was a couple pounds up on the scale on Tuesday, I realized that I'm not strong enough yet. I still give in to temptation too easily. Whether it be a cookie, choosing more sleep rather than going to the gym, or a wussy workout, I needed to get motivated again. So Wednesday I kicked it up a notch. Both Wednesday and Thursday I got 2 workouts in, (to make up for the laziness of the weekend). And now instead of being a couple pounds up I am now a pound less. I'm glad I'm not up, but if I didn't allow myself to gain I would be 3 lbs less. Ugh. It's always going to be a struggle. Anyways...I thought this week I would share some of my favorite 'snacks' that keep me from falling off the wagon.
|I love the chocolaty chewy goodness of these. They are so good. They are a good 'treat' and alot of days they are my go to breakfast.|
|Love pop chips! Lately I have been loving the new Sweet Potato Flavor and the Parmesan Garlic. They are delicious and really cure that 'chip' craving.|
So here's to a new week. I had to physically write down some motivators for me to get my butt in gear again. Once written down I placed it on my fridge, so every time I reach for the cookie dough (that I bought to make for a meeting that I ended up taking something else to. Ugh) I will see the list and stop myself.
In case you can't read them here's whats been motivating me.
* 100 Days to Summer Weight Loss Challenge ends in 4 weeks. This is one of the Challenges I am in and it was started by my cousin. My husband Scott has been doing it with me and we have been doing it for the last 10 weeks. We are down to the final month so we want to end with a bang!
*Zumba challenge ends in 3 weeks. This is the other weight loss challenge I am doing. It was put together by my Zumba instructor. And that ends now in 2 weeks. I have been doing it with my friend Meagan for the last 5 or 6 weeks and I really need to kick it up a notch.
*Florida-New Swim Suits. We are going to Florida in 2 weeks and I can't wait. I also have to buy some new swimming suits. The last few years I've been in maternity swim suits and XXL suits. And I'm excited to say that those won't cut it this year. This is the first time in years that I have to buy a new suit because all of mine are too big! Wahoo! But it's still a swim suit, and I still have a ways to go until I am where I want to be, so I have to hit the gym more often!
*Old Navy Coupon- Ha. I have a coupon for 3 pairs of jeans at half off the reg price that expires next week. I have wanted to use it for weeks now but haven't let myself. Not until I was down a size. New colored denim here I come!
What are some of your favorite snacks? I would love to get some new ideas! What keeps you motivated? Let me know. Cause if you don't I might have to open the package of cookie dough in my fridge and start baking. And I really shouldn't....
