Me and food

Something has come to my attention recently. I have not done super great with watching what I'm eating lately. I mean, I haven't started sneaking bon bons in the middle of the night or anything, but I've definitely become lax and have been eating way too much white sugar. Yes, I'm still exercising and running 4-5 times a week. I've even added an extra 20 minutes to my gym routine to get more weight training in (and I've been doing some cross-training with the Crossramp too, which I L.O.V.E). But, I'm feeling the effects of my non-self-controlled-eating so much lately. In order to combat this, I'm going to have to do 2 things:

1) start writing down everything I'm eating during the day (just to keep up with it and to try to cut out all the snacking)
2) cut out white sugar altogether for the next 30 days (gasp! This one will be really hard because I've been baking some lately, and I found that it's something that I really enjoy)

Just to clarify, I am not a calorie counter. It's just not for me. It's stressful and sets me up for failure, which makes me feel bad about myself every time I eat a brownie or anything sweet. But, I need to regain some self control and some perspective. So, here it goes! Wish me luck.

On another note, (and totally opposite to what I just posted) Jude and Ezra's birthdays are coming up next month and I am going to make their cake again this year. Last year I did a boxed cake mix, but I think I'm going to go all homemade this year. I got this recipe from the Pioneer Woman today and I really want to try it as their cake. Look how pretty it is!

Yum!! It's like a cookie cake with a marshmallowy frosting and fruit on top. My mouth is watering. I want some now!

Oh wait. I just said I'd wait 30 days before eating white sugar. Darn!
