I should not admit this but it is the truth and part of my 'fitness'. Lol not really, but I'll share in my stupidity with you all.
I gain and loose weight pretty easily. Right now I am trying to lose about 3 pounds. This is quite difficult for me as I work out regularly and eat pretty well most of the time. In order to annoy my metabolism and force it to change I find tricking it for a couple of days works.
Yes I can just cut back on my food intake a bit, and and I can ramp up my running. BUT I will admit that sometimes I am just lazy, and don't have the control to stop eating at night!!!
So I bought some caffeine free, zero calorie 'cola'. The fuzz fills my stomach and gives me the satisfaction of filling my stomach without the calories.
Yes pop makes you bloated.
Yes this is stupid.
Yes Aspartame causes cancer.
No this is not long term
Oh my word....have you ever read the ingredients list on a can of pop???? There is NOTHING good in it. In fact, it not only contains cancer causing ingredients, but it contains nasty chemicals!! NOTHING good. Why do they sell this stuff??? Of course they still sell cigarettes don't they!
I'll admit that sometimes I'm an idiot. I'm hungry this morning and bloated.
Back to accountability and getting out for a run, and snacking on vegetables.
