Goodbye my dear, little friend. I shall not see you for a while. Our relationship is just not working out for me. Although you are always sweet to me, I cannot continue down this path of addiction and co-dependency. Really, it's not you....it's me. I just don't want to be in a relationship with you anymore. I will miss you dearly.
Ok...here goes...I'm giving up refined sugar and fructose corn syrup for the next two weeks. Ack! All my sweet goodness will come from either fruit for dessert or the occasional bit of honey for my tea or smoothies. This will be a HUGE test of willpower, but my sugar cravings/addiction has seriously gotten out of control. And I'm a control freak. I like to micromanage. I like to be in control. I am probably going to be a total beeyotch for the next two weeks (my poor husband). Good thing I'll be out of town partially next week. But, I'm babysitting my niece who loves donuts. That's going to be a true test.
I've logged 10 miles so far this week. Shooting for 30 by the end of the week. On track and the legs feel pretty good. My recovery run really worked the soreness out. I think I'm going to the gym with a co-worker during lunch today to try and get a quick 3 miles in. Then I can hit the gym this evening for some bis and tris work and maybe another 3 on the treadmill or elliptical. While running is keeping my legs pretty fit, my arms and abs have wilted and withered a bit. I want to turn that jello into "hello!".
Today I LOVE: Raspberry flavored seltzer/soda water. Ritz and La Croix make great ones!
