Greetings from the chaos that is the playroom on a Sunday morning. H and J are playing trains, A is in the jumperoo, and Mama is on borrowed time.
Welp, the last two days were a giant fail of the I NEED THIS ALMOND TOFFEE variety. I allowed myself to get too hungry at times. (Like, when I took H to a friend’s birthday party yesterday morning at 10:30, and we were both FAMISHED and had to hit up the vending machine for lack of better options. Why had I forgotten to pack healthy snacks?)
(And then when the pizza and birthday cake were finally served, and I indulged.)
Sugar begets sugar in my world, because by the time we got home, I was sneaking into the pantry for handfuls of chocolate chips. For shame!
Today, I will be better.
J let me sleep in until 8 AM (I’ve been exhausted, no doubt from all the fake crap I’ve been eating), and as soon as I woke I prepared us fruit and spinach smoothies with coconut milk.
I’m determined to fight my sugar cravings today. Each time I feel the familiar itch, I’ll choose fruit or nuts instead. It likely won’t be as satisfying in the short-run, but I’ve got to break this cycle.
The recommended daily intake of sugar for a woman is 30g, or 6 tablespoons. How much are you getting each day? I know on days when I slip up, I am hopelessly over this amount.
So, we resolve to do better.

I’m nervous about starting school tomorrow, for a myriad of reasons. I don’t want my blogging or my fitness goals to suffer, so I’ll have to be extremely focused. I’ll be thinking about this tweet from Bob Harper, which I favorited yesterday:
Embed this into your life: discipline.
