Can you tell what I’m obsessed with lately? Nut butters and honey on toast! To be honest, I’ll never love almond butter more than I love peanut butter. I’m working on training my taste buds to truly enjoy it. And yes…its possible to train them. Jeremy and I finished a supersize jar of peanut butter in a week and a half. Now, I have to get rid of the peanut butter damage on my ass. Just kidding, I just swapped the peanut butter with almond butter. It’s not as addicting.
I have the type of body that gains weight fast. I wasn’t blessed with the “skinny jeans”(genes) I can fluctuate up to ten pounds week to week. My brother is the exact same way. Thanks, Dad! That is why I don’t weigh myself. When I need to drop a few pounds, I don’t diet or overexercise. I just make sure to eat super clean and cut back on the junk food. I replace my favorite foods with healthier versions. I can feel when my pants are snug or when I’m bloated. That is how I determine my gains. I never step on scales unless I’m in a doctors office. There is no need to stress over it, just move on with your healthy lifestyle!
A lot of people write me and say they’ve lost a ton of weight but have gained some back. They’re usually upset and frustrated, but its important not to stress. It happens to everyone. I gain weight all the time. If I didn’t, I’d be worried. I love food and sometimes it’s okay to splurge. Just continue your healthy lifestyle and focus on whats important to you! Don’t let that number determine who you are or how you feel. I promise you…your life will change after throwing away that stupid number game.
