Sugar is the devil

I have to admit something. I have been a junk food junkie in a bad way over the last month or two (or three, eek). To the point where I now think nothing of grazing out of the candy jars strewn around my work place all day long. I have had issues with sugar in the past. I liken it to an alcohol addiction. Once I am used to it, I have to have it. I started "over" today and I have already had to sit myself down twice and give myself a talking too b/c I was talking myself into starburst from the vending machine! Not the best for baby at all and not the best for my waist line. I have already gained what I had hoped to gain in the total pregnancy. Now, no worries and I don’t need any comments about how I look great, etc. I don’t look too bad and I understand that I am pregnant and this is what happens. But the fact of the matter is you are suppose to gain 25-30 lbs for an entire pregnancy, not just the first 6 months! So, it stops right now. All the holidays are behind me. I am watching what I eat, not cutting calories by any means, but trimming the junk and trying to get back to wholesome foods. If I don’t get this under control now, I will have an awful time after the baby is out and I am tired and stressed, and I will jump face first into cakes and ice cream. I am cutting out all excess sugar and refined whites and dairy! Why dairy? B/c I am lactose intolerent and I have been lazy with it lately and eating ice cream, etc and my belly hurts. So, far so good today. I think I will feel better overall if I can get my eating back in gear as well. Workouts were pretty non existent last week, but that’s okay with the travel and all. Here's the plan for the rest of the week:

Tuesday - circuit, 30 mins split between hill machine and cross country skier
Wed - 45 min Aerobics DVD
Thurs - Run with Sara - 4-6 miles
Fri- Spin class
Sat - circuit and 1 hour cardio
Sun - spin class, weights
