The first of the year started and I quickly slipped into old habits. A cookie here, an extra coffee there. Before I knew it I found that I had gained back all the weight I had worked hard to lose. I became upset and lost my focus.
This morning, I woke up and the first thing I felt was pain. Then I stepped on the scale, something I hadn't done in a few weeks and wanted to cry. The sad reality that the pain I had in my rotator cuff, was not only from a bad nights sleep but the fact that I had gained weight back didn't help.
I decided to not workout this week or at least until I can move my arm without wincing and really focus the rest of the month on food. I cleaned of my 21 day fix planner and fired up my Myfitnesspal account to track it all. This month, I have been really working locating my food triggers and my breakdowns.
This month, my triggers are sugar, as always but secondly when I get home from work. I pick my kids up on the way and they want snacks. But as I am feeding them snacks I am finding myself snacking, of course it isn't on anything good. My goal is to start making protein shakes when I come homes. Something sweet to satisfy that craving but without over doing it. A good friend has shared some from the Dashing Dish that I want to try. I mean seriosusly, how good does this Red Velvet Cheesecake Protein Shake look? Aaaamazing right? I will defiantly share after I try it.
