Another Good Drink...


I had a goal this year to really fix my sugar eating habit starting when we got back from our holiday festivities. And since Larry was having to cut back on what he ate before his trip, I thought it would be easier. I'm not a breakast person, although I LOVE breakfast food. So I decided to start drinking one of these every morning on the way to work instead of a DDP. I had seen these in Costco but had never tried them. Then Kenneth brought me one the other day and I really liked it. I love mangos, I had never even heard of them until I met Larry and my first one every was fresh right off the tree in the Bahamas. Good stuff I tell ya!

So my eating habits so far-REAL GOOD. I have found out that it's better for me to go ahead and eat something if I'm hungry so that I don't starve myself in between meals and then stuff myself because I'm just so hungry. My sugar intake has gone way down. Yes, I know it's only 12 days into the New Year but I want to be healthy so that one day when I'm pregnant, I don't birth a sugar cube.

Since Thanksgiving I have had only one caffeine drink with some acceptions here and there (especially Christmas). Although I feel like an old person now and falling asleep at 8:30 due to lack of caffeine, I still feel better overall. The key for me giving that up is just going to caffeine free. If you ever give something up, you gotta replace it with something else and that's what we did!

I started back my exercising yesterday morning, that was a bit tough. Overall, I feel great and a lot healthier.
