The Struggles of Mouth Pleasure

We all have times when we fall off the healthy bandwagon. We are human, we are not built to be perfect 100% of the time.  Every now and then I just want to eat an entire pizza and a whole 2 liter bottle of Mt Dew. But I have to remind myself that the mouth pleasure is not worth it!!! 

How do you all handle weekend eating? The weekends are when my hubby is home the most. For some reason we just want to eat crappy food when we are home together. So the other night he decides to get Papa Murphy’s and have a cheat meal. I opted for an Italian salad! (Go me!).

Hubby then weighs himself the next day, only to find out that he is down another pound.

WHAT!!!!

He has lost 30lbs. THIRTY!!!! Thats so great for the last couple months of his hard work. I have lost 19. Together we are kicking our fat booties. 

There will always be a part of me that will struggle with wanting sweets, but it’s getting so much easier to make healthier choices. I am getting a lot better at portion control too, which was a huge problem for me!

Choosing to eat and workout better and healthier with my hubby has been the best decision ever. Together we are getting to our health goals!! 

Just remember when you are faced with a choice of crap food….

It’s not worth the mouth pleasure.

No Fast Food Streak… Broken!

Ok so me and my family had a weak moment the other day. 

At the beginning of the year we decided to try not having fast food all year. Well…no one is perfect right? After 4 months of keeping at it we had some fast food! Boo! 

This past week or so it has been a struggle eating healthy too. I was stuck at a plateau with my weight, but I finally broke through it. In that process I was raising my calorie intake a little and eating some carbs to try to sort of “trick” my metabolism, if you will. Thankfully that worked, but then I started craving the crap food again.

Hubby wants to start another Whole30 challenge with me, and I think that is just what I need to start clean again.

No one is perfect 100% of every single day. I take care of my 3 kids and help the hubby with his studies here and there so I am BUSY! There will be times I cannot eat perfect. I just need to remind myself of that every day!

On another note, I have started lifting weights. Me and the hubs bought some adjustable dumbbells and they are AMAZING!!! I just love it. I am in no means a body builder (yet lol) but I just love how I feel afterwards. 

Plus, how fun is it to workout with your spouse??!! 🙂

 

Well that’s my little update for now. I need to go meal plan now. Back on that bandwagon!!!
