It's a Vicious Cycle

Note: I wrote this last night.
So I have been struggling with my snacking. I'm sure a lot of us have been. It is so f'n hard when you have all this shit food around you at work. I have had pretty good will power but sometimes you just give in and eat a damn homemade pumpkin muffin with cheesecake frosting. When my boss brought those in I directly said "I hate you!" to her. Obviously I was joking my boss rocks but I really didn't want those cup cakey muffins staring me down. So I ate half of one, then I ate the other half the next day and then today I ate a whole one. Then pasta for lunch and then fast food for dinner womp womp womp. I feel like shiiiieeeetttt. It's like one bad choice brings on another then another then another bad choice!There goes my weight loss for last week! 

Well what's a fatty girl to do?

So after reading Miss Holly's post about starting clean eating again, I decided I am going to start "clean-ish" eating tomorrow, because I really don't have the balls to eat totally clean. I am not going to be eating cupcakes or cookies or processed sugary snacks. I will still eat granola bars (that contain protein) and SOME other processed snacky items. Plus I'm going to keep my sugar down to less than 30 grams a day.

I AM going to do this until next weigh day and see how it feels.
Just like I sucked it up on the treadmill I am going to put my big girl panties on and do this too. Who wants to join me?? 

Plan for tomorrow:
Whole wheat double fiber english muffin
1-2 tblspoon natural peanut butter (200-290 cals)

Elliptical workout

Chocolate muscle milk (150 cals)
Morning stare black bean veggie patty 
2 slices smart wheat bread  
greek yogurt (320 cals)

special k protein granola bar

4 oz chicken tenderloins (skinless)
some sort of veggies
brown rice

Also going to get at least 80 oz of water in!

On a much more fun note Melanie is doing an AWESOME giveaway that ends Friday! Go check it out her blog is super motivating, and she is an inspiration to me!

  1. I feel like once I've taken one wrong step, I'm on a downward spiral. I need to get my head in the game and realize that one cupcake does not mean that McDonald's for dinner is inevitable.
    Clean eating sounds awesome, but I'm too lazy for it. So, instead, I'm going to cut out soda (again) and horrible gas station breakfast food (why does Casey's breakfast pizza have to be so good?)! GOOD LUCK!

  2. You got this lady! I started eating cleaner this week and I can tell a huge difference in the way I feel. Plus, you don't feel deprived because you are eating every 3ish hours. I am the queen of sweet tooth land and I haven't had a killer craving yet!

    And, I feel ya on the office biz. Why must you bring tempting things here? Why must you put the haha

    Have a great day!

  3. I am on the SAME TRACK right now. I need to start eating better - really I do. I feel like here at the office it is basically an EAT FEST and I can't take it anymore. Just let me be.. ha.

    I know I love sweets more than my kids, so it is so hard.

    Thanks for the shot out you lovely lady you. We CAN do this - we WILL do this.
