Not Sugar Momma in the usual sense, just a momma who is trying to avoid sugar. It seems like a lot of us BR bloggers are struggling with this lately and for some reason I thought if we needed a support group 'Sugar Momma' would be a great name for our group.
I could NOT commit to no sugar until after today. Today my little one turned 18 months! And I know it isn't an official birthday, but it just seemed like a much bigger deal than a one year old birthday. He has matured so much in the past couple of months and I am just bursting with pride at his cheerful, inquisitive nature. We just had to celebrate. We didn't have a fancy party with a lot of people, but we did go to one of those kiddie pizza joints with rides, arcade games and go carts. We then went to the Farmer's Market listened to a band, then came home for birthday cake.
So that's it, I'm done- no sugar for awhile. At least a week to get me back on track. That just means no obvious sugar. I'm not going militant on a gram here and there or natural fruit sugars.
That being said, even though I haven't lost any weight-I am feeling pretty good about the old body these days. I am definitely tighter than when I finished body revolution. My abs have a lot more definition. Here I am today after Hard Core Abs:
Exciting Food News:
First CSA deliver- yay!
Then I made an AMAZING smoothie. CSA spinach, coconut water, cherries, a scoop of vanilla protein powder.
See my cup is Starbucks. They are opening a juice bars now in response to the healthy 'trend'. I am calling it now- I think this is going to be a big miss. The target demographic are people who pride themselves in NOT going to Starbucks. Raw foodies are out because they aren't going to dig the pasteurization. And if the produce isn't organic, I think people are going to stick to whipping up their local produce in their Vitamixes and skipping Starbucks. I could be wrong though, it has happened before.
Have a great night! Gonna catch up on blogs tomorrow.
