Jamba Juice

Okay, so I'm taking a Nutrition Class online (perfect timing!!!). Anyway, in the end of the book it has nutritional info for pretty much EVERYTHING. Jamba Juice is in here with its most popular stuff; everything is pretty much loaded with carbs (aka, sugar in this case). Really, the only things not are 16 oz of Carrot Juice with 23 carbs (but that is pretty much where all the calories come from, 92 of the 100 calories are from carbs) and 1 oz of freshly squeezed wheat grass juice only has 1 carb and 5 calories...... Yummy!!! ;-)

(If anyone needs nutritional info, let me know. I probably have it in my book.)

In conclusion, Jamba Juice DEFINITELY counts as sugar..... WAHHHH!!!!

As a side note, I almost had a heart attack in Fry's yesterday when I saw that their 12 cans of Pepsi were $1.97, and a 2-liter was $0.59. I almost got some just to have for my free day (which was yesterday for soda, and NO Pepsi ever tasted so good!!! Were they always that sweet, though?) but I didn't, seeing as how I am a weak little girl and wouldn't be able to help myself. Walking away from that isle, though, was almost as difficult as leaving Tyler with a babysitter for the first time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

2 more days!!

JUST TWO MORE DAYS OF WEEK ONE!!! YAY! One week at a time, right? I'm curious to know how everyone's doing. And I'm excited for tomorrow!!!! It's my designated sweet free day. A shake at sonic or the rest of the chocolate chip ice cream? ....hmmm. I should probably finish the ice cream so it will stop screaming at me every time I open the freezer... along with the m & m's and snickers... thanks melanie. :)

I realize that I used to take a lot of little extra bites during the day of something. Especially when making my kids a snack. I find myself thinking about having a little and a voice going, "NO, NO, you can't, you'll lose a point"!!!!!!!!!!!! I think my kids are going to need to do this wellness challenge also! :)

My own body is betraying me!!!!!

Okay, so last night on the way home from my class, my body was SCREAMING at me to stop and get a Jamba Juice. It was almost 10:00, so I would have to break 2 rules..... So, I stepped on the gas and turned up the music so I couldn't hear my stomach crying....... This is going to be interesting!!!!! :-)

The Hardest Part

Why is that I'm having the hardest time expressing sincere admiration to my husband???? How can that possibly be harder than not eating junk food? (It's not that I don't appreciate him-- just making sure I tell him is awkward. Oh, and finding some time in the day when we're in the same room together is not so easy either. . . .)

common confusion,Right?

My butt was wondering if anyone else was affected by the fruits and veggies, and all that water. So I am allowed to eat other stuff!! I just found out, better on the first day than in 12 weeks.
Okay, let's see how this goes!!!!!!!!! Have to get rid of Colby's YUMMY chocolate cake today! Wish me luck!

I think I can ... I think I can ...

So ... this morning, I poured the last half of a perfectly good 2-liter of diet coke down the drain. I didn't pass out. A good sign.
