I'm addicted to carbs and sugar. I know this because when I get a taste, there is no statisfying me. Just like a drug. I want more. I am so full I could puke, but I still want more. A loaf of bread? Yes, please!
This is whats holding me back from my weight goal. I've got the exercise thing down pat. 5-6 days a week, 50-115 minutes a day.
I tell myself I have to workout cus I like to eat. But really, I dont like to workout as much as I like to eat.
It makes me feel good and when I dont work out i can see a significant change in my mood. I need the endorphines it supplies my brain. That natural high.
However, I've been sustaining (nevermind the recent weight gain) the same weight for about a year now. Something has to change. And I find that workingout on my lunch hour, and an hour after work is pretty much all I'm prepared to give to exercise.
I eat good mostly. But I do have those moments several times a week where I am out of control with carbs or sugar. One step forward, two steps back.
This leads me to my next endeavor. I'm giving up simple carbs and refined sugar for 5 days next week. Monday, thru Friday. I'll eat it naturally in veggies and fruit. I am hoping that what "they" say is true and after 5 days you don't miss them.
Here's to hoping I make it. As a plus, if you know me, you might want to stay away from me, I'm gonna be a total bitch.
