Easter is over..and so is the candy...

Thank you girls for all the support and for coming by to cheer me on! I have added a new picture as well from my new haircut, it was taken yesterday for Easter with my family.

I just had to post this article..if your a sugar should definitely read it
How Sugar Harms You

Well this weekend as most know it was Easter, one of my favorite holidays, its between Christmas and Easter but I just love Easter, everything around it.

Well I did pretty well on the portions during Easter lunch with my family but the desserts, candy, etc just killed me. I left last night and kept kicking myself why did I eat all of that candy. To say the least I think it has cured my sugar tooth for a while I feel so sick from eating too much sugar.

So last night when going to find something for dinner knowing all this candy was STILL around I went for a nice healthy salad and brocolli with shells so lots of veggies which made my stomach feel a bit better for sure.

So maybe thats just what I needed to cure my super sweet tooth Ive been having, eat too much dessert to make me not want it..haha! Today is my last day of Spring Break and tomorrow its back to work. I cant believe that school will be out May 22, wow where has this year gone?!

Also after yesterday instead of being lazy and saying Im not working out its Easter excuse which I was pretty close I went out and ran, yes ran a pretty good ways and walked because Im not up to running that far yet. I was so mad at myself for eating the amount of sweets I did I ran the usual part I run, then walked, then on my way back I ran the second part of it. I couldnt believe I really did it but I felt so much better afterwards for doing it.

Hope everyone had a wonderful Easter and a great Monday! Ill leave you with a few quotes that I thought were inspiring I found from the greatest magazine Womens Health....My favorite one which Im going to stick to everything... "Success never comes to those who quit."

"I never regret it when I do it, but I always regret it when I don't."
-- Devin McDonald Vinson, 37, Portland, OR

"Don't judge it, just do it."
-- Kathleen Johnston, 48, Nashville, TN

"Kill…Kill…Kill. The. Hill." (You say the words to match your feet hitting the ground, and it creates a rhythm for you to fall into. A little violent, but hey, it works.)
-- Rita Buscher, 21, Boston, MA

"KMF: Keep Moving Forward"
-- Laura Staub, 34, San Francisco, CA

"This run (or hill or these bicep curls) is bananas. B-A-N-A-N-A-S!"
-- Sarah McDougal, 31, Denver, CO (to the tune of "Hollaback Girl," by Gwen Stefani)

"If you don't focus on your ass, no one else will."
-- Cristina Goyanes, 27, Women's Health associate editor, New York City

"High school reunion"

"Success never comes to those who quit."
-Anna Doughman, 20

"If you can do one you can do two. If you can do two you can do three and so on and on" I started using this when i was training for triathlons. Now I use it when I ad extremely high reps to my sets. I usually ad 25 at a time - referring to abs. I start with 25, 50, 75 and so on. It's excruciating. The results are amazing.

Persistance is the mother of all success.


"A strong outside strengthens the inside."
-- Selene Yeager, 38, Emmaus, PA

"Push the stress out!"
-- Samantha Denny, 37, Jackson Hole, WY

"What's for dinner: something warm and cheesy?"
-- Sue Piccone, 38, Salt Lake City, UT

"Beat, beat, beat, beat, fast little feet feet."
-- Marit Fischer, 36, Salt Lake City, UT

"Grab it! It's yours!" -
- Nona Jordon, 37, Rome, Italy

"This is not the hardest thing I've ever done."
-- Amanda Ryan, 32, Portland, OR

"Thin, strong, lean, long…thin, strong, lean, long…"
-- Kristen Lowery, 35, Colorado Springs, CO (used in yoga class)

"Can I get some fries with that shake-shake booty? If looks could kill you would be an Uzi."
-- Leslie Goldman, 31, Chicago, IL (lyrics from "Shoop," by Salt-N-Pepa, which she sings to herself)

"I am strong beyond belief. I am powerful beyond measure."
-- Abby Ruby, 28, Boston, MA

GREAT article on sugar!!! It's my hot button right now. I just posted about me giving up artificial sweetener for a week. It nearly killed me, but I made it through the week. Now I don't crave sweets any more. I was amazed at how quickly I was able to transition. It really is an addiction. My daughter had a can of soda tonight that had 40 grams of sugar in it. WOW!! That's like 2 days worth of sugar intake. She said she's cutting back.

Thank goodness the candy's gone. I ate a mini Reese's peanut butter cup (my ultimate weakness) and 4 or 5 mini M&Ms. Not bad. I think the whole thing was 3 or 4 points. Just enough to make me think I actually participated in Easter.

Thanks for the quotes. Those were awesome!!
