It Does a Body Good

Attempting to cut down my sugar intake and actually get back into some semi-regular workout routine with only 6 months until my Beach Body has to be Beach Ready. Ordering the cutest swimsuit you've ever seen [and getting it in the mail this week!] really stepped up my motivation to keep things moving forward!

We've been switching to Sugar Free options, which is a heck of a lot easier [though as effective?] than giving up foods we love. Sugar Free has become a lifesaver. We have Sugar Free coffee creamer and Sugar Free syrup. I'm sure there is a better way to go about healthy-ing your diet, but we're busy people and we're trying to work with what we've got, you know? And what we've got, my roommate and I, is a sweet tooth.

Yesterday after work, I was craving cake. Like, super-duper, this-is-happening-whether-I-like-it-or-not, absolutely-no-willpower CAKE CRAVING. In light of this, I made myself a deal: Cake could happen, but all other snacks and purchases had to be within the new healthier/sugar free guidelines. So, I bought a teeny tiny cake and these Jell-O desserts. I was pretty proud of myself for not eating the entire teeny tiny cake! 

I got in a few good workouts this week, but I think the real treat was starting up Walking Lunges. Ay caramba! These things are intense! I've just been doing a few laps up and down various hallways at work and at home. My legs and butt are on fire, I tell you. On fire in the very best of ways, that is. :)

workout associated with this picture is a standing version of the lunge, while I actually travel forward with each lunge, turn around, and start again. Oh, and I don't use weights. I'm not a glutton for punishment. I'm pretty sure my booty will do    j u s t   f i n e   with simply the weight of my body holding it down.

Anywhos, hope summer is going well for each and everyone of you! I seriously cannot believe that July starts tomorrow. How freakish and weird is that? Spooky....

  1. I like your swimsuit, very flattering!

  2. Thank you! I can't wait to move to the beach so I can show it off! :)
