sararay's Journal, 23 April 2013

Things are starting to settle down after having a baby and moving to a new city. I started a squats challenge about a week ago and that has started my motivation going again. I have been doing abs and arms too. I'm still trying to find time to get on the elliptical. It is hard between a busy 3 year old and an almost 4 month old.

I can't really go super low carb since I am nursing right now so I'm just limiting my carbs. Sugar is bad for me so trying to avoid it but the little one doesn't tolerate it when I eat splenda (or dairy for that matter) so I have opted for stevia, monk fruit extract and a little non-GMO corn dextrose which is supposed to be 100% glucose so no fructose to trigger the insulin problems. I did a lot of research to get to that conclusion. I still have to limit it, though because I can tell when I have had too much sugar because my lower back starts to hurt.

I'm trying to eat a lot more vegetables, and limit sugar and starches especially after lunch. Sometimes I reach for the quick and easy (and not as healthy) when really I should just sit and eat because I'm hungry. If I eat vegetables and proteins I won't be as tempted by the sugar since I won't be hungry.
