This morning I hit up the gym for some strength training. I did a few moves on the Roman Chair, a piece of equipment that makes me feel silly for some reason, so I prefer to use it when the gym’s quiet
Then, I came home and Ben called me.
From the shower.
I’m always asked if I’m only half Mexican, but my mom and dad are both Mex. So, we had Mexican food since that’s all we know how to order.
Since the focus of my partnership with Orville Redenbacher is “Smart Snacking” I took a little look at the
man woman in the mirror and realized I need to get that part of my diet together.
Not to beat a horse that’s passed away from natural causes or anything, but snacking is my #1 diet downfall. I like to snack, but most of it goes unaccounted for in my mind and on the blog. I’ve estimated that snacking adds up to an additional 800 or more calories a day over here in RERville.
That’s not okay because it’s often mindless eating or at the very least – not balanced snacking (read: cereal or cereal with more cereal on top).
So, I am starting a little challenge for myself –
30 Days of Smart Snacking Challenge
To stop overeating via unaccounted for snacks
To stop ruining my dinner with afternoon snacking
To stop mindless snacking
To stop nighttime snacking (something I’ve been better at, but let’s put it here to be all official and stuff)
The Reward: My jeans will fit again!!! (I went through 3 pairs before I found something I could wear to dinner last night.)
