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.

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. 🙂


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!

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