I've Put On A Couple Pounds

Ladies, I promised I'd show you my favorite snack today, then I realized I had already shown most of you back in May. I'm sorry for the repeat for some of you. If you are new to my blog, then I guess that's okay. The cravings are coming back. I buy these for the kids' lunches. It's hard for me to look at these.
I bought this black licorice because I do crave this and it is natural. The other flavors they make have high fructose corn syrup, but the black is natural. If I have 4 pieces with a cup of black coffee it's 130 calories. I decided to do this yesterday afternoon and I hid the cookies. The craving was gone and I was happy.
This is my favorite peanut butter and honey toast with black coffee. Have started every morning like this for the past 30 years. I use Adam's not Skippy or Jiff. I look at it this way; the calories and fat are the same, but the type of fat is not. It would be like stir frying your veggies in olive oil or peanut oil rather than Crisco. Get it?
This morning I am sore. I only ran once yesterday, but the reality is I am sore. the soreness my body feels and this old gray day makes the newness of the treadmill wear off." Lord Jesus, help me to be faithful and strong in the commitment I made with You to take care of my body and to exercise." Okay, pep talk and feeling sorry for myself is over. The truth is, I am out of shape and I am still young enough and strong enough to get out there and work hard, so off I go.... "Thank you Jesus..."

adsgram said... are lucky to like black licorice. My Mom loves it, but I cannot even stand the smell of it. I have never heard of Adam's peanut butter...must not be out on the East Coast. I often have pb and whole wheat for breakfast as well, though. Coffee- no sugar and 1% milk is as low as I have managed, but if you stay on line with us maybe I will get inspired to try to lose again...if you think over 50 is glad you aren't over 60 (with not much willpower to boot!) You have done so wonderfully...congrats!

Have a great day..
