Sugar The Bitter Truth

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dBnniua6-oM

Very interesting video. 90 minutes long, and really boring and scientific in a lot of parts, but stick it out and toward the end, he brings it all together summing it up!

I am not going to give up sugar all together by any means, but it did give me an incentive to cut way down on sugar, except for berries, fruits, etc.

Back from Vacation!

We returned from vacation yesterday (Saturday) and surprisingly, I did rather well, sticking to my calorie limits. I didn’t always make the best choices (ie Danish, whoopie pies) but I was proud that I did make some GREAT choices (ie steamed/broiled haddock, kiddie portions of ice cream)

We went biking, walking, and ATVing a lot and I felt I was pretty active all week. I only went over my calorie limits on a couple of days, but some days I was under, especially when considering exercise!

I reluctantly weighed myself this AM, and I am roughly the same weight as my last weigh in, maybe a 1/2 to 1 lb higher, but I am probably a little bloated due to PMS, and my water intake has been not great, so hopefully I can get back on track, and lose a little bit this week!

But all in all, it was a good week!
