No chocolate for one week?

21 01 2010

Does the title scare you? It scares me, that’s for sure!!

It’s Thursday…which means it is almost Friday and it also means that I am done 4 Booty Camp sessions so far! 4 down, 12 to go!

WOW!! is what I say to the classes so far! My instructor Lauri is awesome! No hate towards my last instructor but her classes were a walk in the park compared to Lauri’s.  The classes are the kind where your whole body shakes, you keep glancing at the clock and you are drenched in sweat 25 mins in. I expect some great results by the end of the 8 weeks! As long as I can keep my eating habits in check…

Lauri is so invested in her class and she made us hand in food diaries with a typical weekday and a typical weekend. Now, I’m not gonna lie, I thought my food diary was going to rock her socks! Sadly, it did not. I got my sheet back last night and was almost embarassed. Lauri pointed out to me that I was probably eating too much sugar and not enough protein.  😳

I’ve always considered myself to be a chip-aholic. If there is a bowl of chips out at a party or an event you can bet I am going to grab a handful. But I’ve never even considered that I would be a sugar addict..until recently. While I have learned to limit and control my chip urges, by making them a special treat, I have not done anything to limit my sugar. I guess it’s because I’ll grab a piece of chocolate here and there or a handful of candy and not think twice about it.

So, when Lauri challenged us on Monday night to NO chcolate for a week including chocolate flavoured foods, my jaw almost hit the floor.  Ok I had a mini panic attack.. I mean, I had just been eating some dark chocolate right before I left for class.. 😯

But I am proud to say that I have not had a single bite of chocolate since Monday! Booyah!

Stay tuned for next week when not only do I have Booty Camp but I start the Running Room clinic next Thursday!

Thanks for reading!
