I’ve been slooowly trying to get my diet back to somewhere near pre-pregnancy. Between wanting food that is quick and not being able to eat dairy, a lot of the times I’ve gone for the almond milk ice cream. More times than I’d like to admit. Last week I put a stop to that and just didn’t buy it. Sure it’s easy and delicious. But I need real food! Not having it the house went well. I’d make some chia pudding if I wanted something sweet, or have some fruit (easy! convenient!).
This week I decided on a little extra challenge. I’m cutting out sugar Mon-Fri. Other than finishing a dark chocolate bar from Trader Joe’s and a little stevia in Shakeology and my regular protein powder. So far, it’s going well! This extra challenge will really push me because I really can’t depend on any processed or packaged foods. This was a big reason to do it. Without cutting out something for a short time, it is easy to slide into a bad habit. Now I’ll get used to cooking, and know that it has an end in sight.
I hope that after Friday, I will have pushed the thoughts that I don’t have time for cooking out of my head. It hasn’t even been that much of a change yet, but not putting some stevia in my coffee was strange. Still good though! I’ll write about how it goes. And about Les Mills Pump…I swear!
