New Day

My sweet tooth was seriously raging yesterday.

Remember how I joked about eating cookies and brownies for dinner? Well, I ended up having ice cream. Gah! Thank goodness for a new day and a new start.

I did enjoy a little sweetness in my breakfast this morning. I made myself a chocolate peanut butter sandwich on an Arnold whole wheat sandwich thin and had few South Beach Living dark chocolate covered soy nuts on the side.

Monday's Breakfast

I got my chocolate fix, but in a healthy, controlled way. Sometimes I feel like when I start to eat junk food and sweet stuff early in the day, my body wants to keep eating that way. It’s hard to break out of the sugar funk.

How do you handle days when your sweet tooth is out of control?

I try to silence my sweet tooth by eating something indulgent, but small. Yesterday my sweet tooth didn’t understand the concept of a small indulgence. It wanted an entire cake. πŸ™‚


Today I was excited to get to the gym because it was the launch date for the latest BodyPump release. Unfortunately, I must say I’m not feelin’ this new track at all. I love upbeat, happy music and classic rock when I’m lifting weights and I couldn’t get into the music selections for this release. Oh well… at least it’s still a good workout!

After the Pump, I did 20 minutes on the elliptical followed by 10 minutes of incline walking. Carrie Underwood’s music video for Cowboy Cassanova came on while I was on the elliptical. I think she is so gorgeous!

What celebrity do you think is beautiful?

I think a billion celebrities are very pretty, but Carrie Underwood is one I always think looks classy and gorgeous.

  1. I was a sugar monster yesterday too! Time to go work off some of my extra energy!

  2. I’m a Carrie Underwood fan too – she is gorgeous!

    I think sometimes it take a few classes of a new release to really get into the music. I have the same problem every time there is a new release.

  3. I’m always a fan of Carrie Underwood–mainly bc shes an Oklahoman. She wasnt kidding when she said she was from a small town. She lives in Checotah which is like a stoplight…it has a Sonic and a Walmart, that’s it. The only good thing about it is its close to a popular lake!

    I too enjoyed many cookies yesterday so I guess I had the sweet tooth as well!

  4. Awww, was it Body Pump 72? We are launching next Saturday. I really like the music for 72. hmmm.

  5. When I want something sweet…I eat it πŸ˜€ LOL Not always a good thing. πŸ˜‰

    Sorry the class wasn’t the best. Music is a big impact to me on whether or not I like a class.

  6. I’m like you- if I want something sweet I go ahead and have it (in a reasonable portion). I’ve always been a fan of Megan Fox!

  7. When I have a sweet tooth attack I have something sweet and try to drink as much water and green tea as possible. My mum is diabetic and I get very bad sugar spikes when I eat too much sugar and can feel very unwell. I swear by that green tea. πŸ™‚
    Sorry to hear about your class!
    I like Hillary Swank and Jessica Biel as they are athletic.

  8. My Gym launched 72 last Monday….I’ve done it 3 times and I’m not a fan either…..I found 71 MUCH tougher!
    I think the Ab Track is the easiest track in ages….BOOO Les Mills!

  9. I agree with you that Carrie Underwood is an inspirational figure for health! She’s so beautiful, but in a normal, natural way. She seems to have a really great head on her shoulders too.

    Have a great Monday, girl!

  10. Sugar is just necessary sometimes!

  11. Must be something in the Orlando water because I had one to many bowls of ice cream last night! GAH!

  13. I love Keri Russell…something about her is beautiful in a very honest (non-moviestar) way! πŸ™‚

  14. I never eat sweets before lunch. Otherwise, that’s all I eat. I also don’t drink soda during the day for the same reason. Once I start, I won’t stop!
