Food Freedom

Pizza- specifically this Asian Chicken pizza from Hungry Howies (and it’s my favorite pizza of all time) used to have complete control of me.

I would sit and eat slice after slice and wind up feeling bloated and miserable. And then the binge cycle would begin.

The following thoughts would run through my brain:

I messed up, I may as well eat anything I want the rest of the day, I’ll do better tomorrow.

But the One/80 program taught me SO much about food, the way I look at food and I removed it’s power. Food is food. It’s not good or bad, it’s just fuel for my body. I ate 2 slices and then went on with my night. No food guilt, no food binges followed.

This is my food freedom. I have achieved it. It’s the BEST feeling!!! Obviously my journey is still going and I’m still working on myself every day, but to feel like I’m making progress is something I have been striving for and I am finally achieving it.

Exercise (Tuesday)

Emma has been working really hard on riding her bike and she is getting faster and faster, I’m walking and almost running at points to catch up to her. We have officially reached a major milestone in this house and I’m going to be selling our stroller! We are DONE with it! Now that she can ride her bike for as long as she can, I’m so excited! Baby days are done and gone behind us and I can not be more excited. Some people love babies and newborns, I’ll take preschool age and teenagers any day. And that’s where we are. Finally!

Ok, so we did 1.62 miles of her riding and me walking/running beside her.

Later I did Abs 10 (10 minutes of ab work.) I hate ab work so I never do it and I never do it because I hate it. But, 4 babies and 4 c-sections also means that I have 0 strength so I’m making myself do it and then I finished off with Fat Burn Challenge. It was 1/2 hour of a series of 2:00 cardio drills followed by a 30 second break. I loved it and can see it becoming one of my favorites!
