Wanting Some More Accountability

It's been a long time. I've been totally on the workout train the last couple of months (I won't bore you with the details here. Click here if you're interested in reading about it.) as I prepare for another triathlon in less than 3 weeks. (EEEEK!) But my eating habits have hardly budged.

I know I need to go on a no-sugar regimen and really fuel my body with healthy foods from now until race day, but I'm having a hard time committing to it. The biggest challenge I have is my daily routine of sitting down in front of the TV at the end of a long day with my hubby and eating lots of bad foods right before bed. Every night.

Any big ideas on how to combat the problem? I keep vowing to myself that I'll only eat veggies after a certain time at night, but when it comes to that time and my significant other sits down with a big bowl of cereal and some chocolate candy goodness, I can't stick to the plan.

I don't suppose Hubby would join you in your late-night rule-keeping? Or he could wrap carrot sticks around his candy bars? :)

I haven't brought it up with him lately - not formally in a non-whiny way, at least. I'll try it. If that doesn't work, I'll try the carrot stick approach. :-D

Try cottage cheese and some strawberries or peaches. Good alternative that gives you protein and has a little sweetness, but not too much sugar. Buy the peaches in 100 juice to cut out any syrupy sweetness. Or grab a handful of nuts, they feel you up fast and are yummy. Good luck!
