Growing up, I was skinny. I mean, s-k-i-n-n-y.
And then I had 3 kids.
I’m not usually one to have body issues, but when not only am I feeling either like a sausage in every piece of clothing I own, or like I’m dressed in a mumu trying to hide it all, it starts the wear on a girl!
So, change starts now.
I still have 51 days until Little is old enough to go to the gym daycare (but who’s counting??), so until then, I am starting with watching what I eat.
First food to cut back on: SUGAR
I have a major sweet tooth that usually hits its high at 8:30pm and seems to only be satiated by too many Oreos. But I drink milk with them, so it’s healthy, right?
I completely cut sugar out a few days ago to give it a whirl, as I had heard that if you’re trying to lose weight and have never cut out sugar, it’ll make the biggest impact on your progress. I decided to splurge one morning and sweetened my coffee with a seasonal creamer (read: not available when I’m “back on sugar”).
I was a crazy person. After 2 tablespoons of a sweet creamer, I was bonkers! My mood could have just as well been a piece of playground equipment! It really made me consider how sugar affects my kids! And they don’t even get that much! (Sweets are mainly reserved for special occasions).
I think dropping extra sugar from our diets could help us in more ways than one!
