Keeping up with the Janathoners, I worked out before breakfast. I did 40 minutes of kettlebells. Sparkpeople.com says that equates to 800 calories, putting my starting calorie allotment at 2,000. I’m skeptical.
Today also marks the end of my 3-week no junk food challenge. How did I do? Certainly not perfect. Well, I learned a few things. I’m still at a 4-lb. weight loss, which I’m happy about.
I feel better without junk food. My energy stays steady and my face is clearer. My attitude has improved. I feel like I’m supporting my best self.
I can’t drink coffee with only milk, unless under duress. A spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down. Mary Poppins said so.
Too much coffee causes me to drag in the afternoon like a curly-haired slug.
I will avoid salty foods, as they maketh me a sponge.
I will add dark chocolate back. Too long a separation, my sweet dusky friend.
That being said,I need to mind my sweet tooth. There’s a coworker who brings in cookies, and gives me a half every single day. I can save those for Zac like I did during this season. I don’t know that I’ll ever conquer la dent sucree, but I can satisfy it with fruit most of the time.
This is a lifestyle I’d like to continue. I want to indulge in the occasional burger with fries or handful of potato chips. I have 6 lbs. to go to get to my goal weight. Staying motivated is the key.
How are your New Year’s resolutions going?
