cherries are my favorite snack

rather than eat shitty superbowl food today, i ate wonderful whole foods (fruits, veggies, and lean meat) all day and feel great. this year i decided to give up sugar, alcohol and processed food. i have stuck to the no alcohol (this is easy for me, i don't really enjoy drinking and rarely did anyway) but i sugar is rough because it sneaks into many things. so i can't say i have managed to avoid it 100% but i am doing very well. i am not a big sugar fan to begin with. i don't like candy and i haven't had soda in years and years, but if i go out with hank's family they will usually get desserts and i am tempted to have bites. i am already super into my health but my goal for this year was to just kick my mindfulness about it up a lot. it's all about feeling good and making good choices.


  1. Wow! You are going to be the most healthy person ever! I am pretty good about eating well and eating lots of fresh fruits, veggies, and lean meats, but I absolutely could not go without sugar! I don't eat a lot of it anymore, but I would seriously die without having a little chocolate or dessert of some sort every so often!

  2. what did you do to lose your weight? you look amazing by the way!

  3. Thanks! I am still in the midst of losing, but I just eat smaller portions, and healthier foods, and work out 5-6 days a week. I mainly eat what I mentioned above. Primarily fresh foods, but I still do eat some processed food and sugar. I love it too much to give it up, haha! For me, being consistent with the exercise has been the key I think.
