I am so proud of myself as I was having more than two treats daily before I started this challenge and feel I am now able to live without the block or two of chocolate daily.
I went shopping at The English Shop in Koln last weekend, now this is where I buy my Weight Watchers treats and Cadbury's chocolate which you cant buy in the normal German shops.Once I got there I said *NO TREATS* and bought All Bran, Oats and Marmite ~ no treats as I knew they would sit in the cupboard and call my name...I am an all or nothing person...I have given this challenge my all this month and am going to try make it a lifestyle change....treats have to be that...TREATS and not everyday foods.
Yesterday I went shopping and stood in front of the Dark Organic Chocolate.....stood there quiet some time reading labels and seeing the exciting new chocolates that have come out....but then thought about all the Clean foods I'm putting into my body....why would I want to sabotage it with chocolate....so walked away...and felt fine...I had decided.
I have not lose weight by giving up these treats or eating clean...in fact I have gained...but am not sweating it as I am doing lots of toning which develops muscle and know I am eating correctly and training daily...there are so many factors that could be causing the weight gain, muscle being one of them and then menopause....
I am not going to crash diet, or drop my calories to lose weight... I am feeling great...am working on not obsessing on a number anymore...so what if I am a little heavier than a few months ago.....I still measure the same and fit into my clothes....AND FEEL GREAT!
