It's time for our monthly check-in. But before we get to that, I'd like to talk about diet demons. We all have them, don't we? LOL...surely I'm not all alone in this battle!
I actually have two demons that I am battling right now. My two biggest hurdles with healthy eating is my chocoholicism and my enjoyment of celebrating holidays & special occasions. And wouldn't you know it, this weekend is a double whammy, a holiday celebrated with chocolate.
I work hard at counting calories, eating healthily and exercising on all the "everydays" of my life. But when it comes to holidays, birthdays & anniversaries I don't deprive myself of any of our traditions, especially the menus. If I didn't have the food & drinks that I associate with those times, it just wouldn't be special to me any longer.
We are celebrating Easter early this year, just like we did with Christmas, because Desiree is working on the holiday itself. So we've already had our Easter dinner & Easter baskets yesterday. Desiree arrived Thursday and we had Toppers Pizza for supper when she got here. LOL...and I still have several days of over-indulgence ahead because Jesse will be here until Tuesday. Thank goodness we have another month until the next check-in...plenty of time to work off the extra calories :)
THIS WEEK'S CHALLENGE:
Part 1: It's check-in time...either measurements or weight, it's up to you. Do you have any changes to report? As for myself, I weighed myself before the weekend festivities started...I've lost 1 lb. this month :)
Part 2: Do you have any diet demons? What are they? Are you having a hard time with keeping them reined in?
NEXT WEEK'S BLOG: What's Your Workout?
DISCLAIMER: Whenever I use the word DIET in my blog posts I am in no way suggesting that I have invented/discovered some miracle system to lose weight. Whenever I use the word DIET, I am simply substituting a single word to replace the longer phrase EATING HEALTHIER THAN IN THE PAST.
