Fit Mommy Friday: WK 4: Down BUT Not Out~

So I'm feeln' kinda outta sorts. This snow and ice is getting to me~and I'm still plugging, but not feeling like DOING IT~I've overall been very much on my POE~lost an additional 2#s for total of 41#s~woot! Week 17 is completed with no white sugar or flour.  Here's a flyer I received on sugar FYI~

Sorry it turned out so small, but hope you can read it if you need some sugar FREEing inspirations!  I certainly do. But let me say that I FEEL so much better physically that I don't WANT to eat white flour and sugar~period. Like I don't eat pork either. When a food makes you feel so rotten, you have no trouble giving it up~but it's a mind game about the sugar, b/c since I've given it up, I don't miss it~MOST of the time...and less sweet tastes plenty sweet to me.
Here's my week:
Fri~YMCA water exercises
Saturday~Stretching and moving.
Sunday~Nothing. DAY of REST ;-))
Monday~Stretching and exercising at home.
Tuesday~Water aerobics at the YMCA
Wednesday~Stretching at home~
Thursday~In with a tummy ache~(NO MO sugar free candy for me!)
Friday~YMCA swimming and workout.

Head over HERE to ck out the Fit Mommys!

I love it when great minds think alike ; )

I gave up sugar on Jan 5 and haven't had any in over 21 days!! woot! ; ) Feel much MUCH better. I gave it up to learn to love God more than I love food... currently studying through Breaking Free by B. Moore and Made to Crave by Lysa Terkeurst. Anyway... I digress...

Here's an incredible sugar-free recipe that I adapted from a bloggers recipe...

1-2 t. baking cocoa
2-3 t. stevia or raw sugar

mix together in 12 oz of hot water and top off with a little milk. So yummy!

I'll be praying for you on your sugar free journey. ; )

Great week! I can't eat very much sugar free candy for the same reason. I just make my own sweets if I want them. Homemade sugar free sweets are healthier anyway.

I wish I could go swimming! I might have to check into that option.

Sounds like a great week to me! Good job, especially on the cutting out sugar part. :-)

SEVENTEEN WEEKS! - absolutely AWEsome!

You are pushing on, even when you don't feel like it and I'm proud of you!

I made myself get up and exercise last Friday night after reading your post and I felt so much better. I knew I would, but just didn't have the gumption.

Have a great week!

You are so awesome! I don't know how you can cut out sugar!! You must have some willpower...please pass some to me! I wish all us Fit Friday Mommies lived near eachother because I so want a workout buddy! Hope you have another great week.

17 weeks is amazing. Great job!

And don't worry about that ice and snow; it'll be gone in less than two months, and by then you'll be any number of pounds lighter and will have enough energy to really enjoy the good weather.
