Happy Thursday

First, a little housekeeping.... I’ve had a facelift!
And I love it!!
Special thanks to Hubby Jack for the amazing transformation!!
Obviously, he does great work and is really affordable.
Keep him in mind if you need a little sprucing up!!

So far, Operation Sugar Detox/Diet Reset has been going well. I have not eaten any bread, crackers, cereal bars, cookies, cake, chocolate, candy, etc. and I feel GREAT!! My stomach is flatter than I have ever seen it. I told my hubs that at this rate, I could get into my Miss Me jeans that I haven’t been able to wear in 2 years because of my muffin top!! Woohoo!!

I'm concerned about fueling on my run, however. Usually I use a banana and Honey Stinger waffle or PB toast pre-race. During the run, I fuel with Gu Chomps or Honey Stinger "gummies" I'm thinking about oats, peanut butter, banana, or a sweet potato pre-race and dried fruit, honey packets, applesauce, or cut up Larabars on the run.

And I’ve successfully completed Jillian Michael’s 30 Day Shred for 3 days in a row. Last night was rough because my arms were sore and tired, but I got ‘er done. Thank goodness this is taper week for my Pathwayers in prep for their 10k this Saturday. I put in 3 miles with them Monday night, 2.65 wet, cold miles last night and we’re going to do 2 miles tonight.

Whew!! I’ve been a busy girl!!

Now, let’s go have a terrific day!!

Do you watch your sugar and processed food intake?
How do you handle sweet cravings?
Any other sugar-free athletes out there??  How do you fuel your run without gels or "gummies"?


  1. Thanks!!! You gave great direction!

  2. Oh my gosh! Im doing the 30Day shred too!

    Today makes Day 10!! And Im on level 2...
    I was so sore the first couple of days, but push through it and it will get better! But yay for you!!


    1. Way to go, Cece! Level 2, that is awesome!!

  3. Check out those guns! Wow! I've never successfully made it through the whole 30DS. Keep up the great work!

    1. Thank you! I haven't either. I find that I get bored or am not as challenged as much as I would be if I were in a class.
