Reduced Prices Do Not Mean Zero Calorie :)

This is my biggest temptation every year.

Seriously, even more so than the day after Christmas.

Every year, the day after Easter I love to go to Target, Walgreens, and CVS and hit up their holiday aisle for the CLEARANCE goodies!

I’m reminding myself this year to realize…just because the bags of candy are $1 or less doesn’t mean that I have to buy them. I LOVE the Starburst Jelly Beans and the Cadburry Mini Eggs that are completely full of that awesome chocolate with the thin candy shell. Not to mention those wonderful Reese’s Peanut Butter Eggs!

But, I don’t need to derail all the good work that we have done in our home with healthy eating habits by putting all that in our home again. That was part of our original problem.

I believe in all things in moderation. For me, moderation is a pizza night one night a week. As for sweets, I’m down with my chocolate Shakeology, so candy and treats of that sort are reserved for special occasions mostly.

Easter is a very special occasion in our home! Our biggest special occasion! Therefore, we will enjoy our treats on Sunday, but that’ll be it. We can have our favorites and enjoy every bite rather than scarfing it all down, knowing that we’ll have more tomorrow when bargain lady mommy goes to the store and raids the holiday aisle!

Every jelly bean (even if it is zero fat) contains sugar. Sugar turns into fat…which my body does not need.

Those mini eggs…well…my love affair with those will just end up with them being suction cupped to my hips.

I’ll stick with enjoying them on Sunday and being thankful at the end of the week that I didn’t let it trigger more and more treat eating throughout the week.

Everything in moderation…but always on the right track.

As a teacher, I was always careful to keep my students on the right path, even if our conversations went astray for a few moments. I enjoyed getting to know my kids and making them laugh…they worked harder then when it was time to work!

Same holds true here…stray on those holidays! Enjoy! But stay close to the path so you can hop back on without having to take a long journey just to get back on track!

Slow and steady always wins the race!

Healthy living is a marathon, not a sprint. 🙂

Insanity: The Asylum, 30 Day Challenge

Losing weight, getting into the swimsuit, skinny jeans, capris, tank tops, and summer clothing! All things in my Spring Vocabulary!

This year was the first year that there was no yo-yo dieting, no weight gain in the winter, and no bloated depressive feelings setting in come March.

It’s April and I’m ready! But…always ready to push to DO MORE and be the best.

My dad always told me when I was living at home…never ever settle for what you have achieved. If you get comfortable, you’ll never improve. Many times that was annoying to hear when I wanted to celebrate an achievement, but he really helped me keep it “real”.

I have been loving loving loving my second round of Turbofire workouts. It fits me. It’s fun, has great music, and I can fit it into my morning routine before my full time job as Anthony’s teacher and stay-at-home mom kicks in.

The second round ends at the end of the month. I’m ready to kick it up and DO MORE!

I’m going to start Insanity: The Asylum. No, I haven’t done the 60 days of Insanity yet, but I’m jumping into the Asylum. Heck, I was a teacher, I can follow directions and stay on track! I’m jumping to new heights in my health!

I’m looking for others who want to do this with me! I am looking for others to check-in with virtually just to compare notes and keep me motivated!

Are you looking for an intense calorie burning cardio workout? Come on! Let’s do this!

Message me and let’s get ready for the beach by June the 1st baby!!
