Stop Being Fat! Friday.

Thank you all so much for your ideas from last weeks post. You gave me some awesome new snacks ideas that I have been trying out and this week I have been so much better about staying on 'track'. Sometime I just get in a rut, finding myself eating the same things day after day and I get BORED. So switching things up a bit has really helped. I have gotten in 5 workouts this week and I am feeling better!

Although I must be honest, last weekend the hubs and I went on a double date and I was BAD! We went to the Copper Creek Pub, and after seeing their Chubby burgers on the menu both Scotty and I ordered one. What is a Chubby burger you ask? Basically they use a grilled cheese sandwich in place of your bun. Hello Fat and Grease & deliciousness! I did only finish half of it, but I did did through all of my cheese curds. And then we went to a movie where I may or may not have had Reese's and Crunch and Munch. Ugh. Least to say I felt horrible after. So when I was through taking the sitter home I went straight to the gym and didn't leave until I had burned all the extra calories I ate that day.

My stomach hurt after eating all that crap and weirdly I am glad. It showed me that I am doing better. My body isn't used to eating so much crap anymore. And it can't handle it. And I realized how much better I am feeling now that I am making healthy changes. So no more Chubby Burgers for me!

Bacon Ranch Chubby.

Deep Fried Cheese Curds.
So the rest of the week has gone really well. I wasn't down any pounds at my Zumba challenge weigh in on Thursday but I was down inches. This is our final week and I can't wait to compare my numbers with my starting points.

We leave for Florida on Wednesday and I am determined to bring my gym clothes and USE THEM while I am there. (And stick with eating well of course.)

Also I just started a Herbalife Digestion Cleanse. It's a program that last 21 days. I know a couple people who have done this and they have noticed so many changes. Better skin, better digestion, less headaches, more energy etc. So my friend Meagan and I decided to do it as well. It's a combination of morning and evening pills you take everyday for 21 days and we are also taking the Aloe Juice as well.

I just started taking this Wednesday night. Along with this I am trying to eat red meat and high fatty foods sparingly (as the cleanse is to rid my body of toxins, I don't want to be putting them all back in at the same time). So I'll keep you posted on how it goes.

How was your week? This is my first 'cleanse' of any kind. Have you done any? Digestive, liquid or whatever? Did it work? Did you like it?


  1. I've considered a cleanse off and on for about a year but can't seem to find a week that it wouldn't interfere with training. I'm looking forward to hearing how it goes for you.

  2. I would like to try this... You just continue eating regularly, minus what you mentioned above, and take the pills? What does the Aloe juice do for you?

    I need to get some of these recipes from you.. :)
