When my clients ask me if they can include chocolate in their diet when on a cut, I say "ummmm hell yes!" If they asked me "can I eat as much of it as I want?", I'd say "ummmm hell no!" This beautiful find today is an 80g bar of Dark orange chocolate called Heidi and for half of the bar (40g, which is 5 large squares) it is only 200kcals! Why would you cut chocolate or your naughty treats out of your diet for "a couple of weeks" when you know that you're going to go insane and end up binging on ridiculous amounts? Instead, track that stuff in! All in moderation guys... 200kcals is not that much of my day and I am now smiley and not a miserable cow and I'm in control of my nutrition 🙋🏼🍫 #winning#diet#nutrition#chocolateaddict#tracktracktrack#caloriescount#weightloss#flexibledieting#besmartnotmiserable

*****THE DAY WE TRIED ON THE DRESS**** So let's talk about the day I tried on dresses with my mom and sister. I will never forget that day. It was one of the reasons that I chose to get healthy and fit.
We went on a Saturday to get some ideas for some bridesmaid dresses. I had no idea what to expect or what I even wanted. Walked in, went to the place they were and started to pull some off the rack to try on.
I went to the dressing room with my mom and my sister so they could give me their opinion and help me zip up. Never could do that on my own...I guess I have T-Rex arms! Lol
I put on the first dress, it didn't fit, no biggie, on to the next. Next one, nope, next one... Nope again. Tried on at least 10 dresses that NONE of which even zipped up.
The sales person said that is all we got in the bigger size. These dresses were 18-20+ in size. She didn't say it mean but in my head I heard... "I can no longer help you, you have tried all the bigger dresses on and there is no other options!!" lol yeah it sounded like that in my head.
I was totally devastated and hurt on the inside even though I held a strong exterior. I was totally defeated and thought how did I let this happen!?! For one, I was still wearing my maternity clothes! So when I grew they grew right along side me. I actually had no idea that I was that big. :( YIKES!!!! My mom and my sister kept saying you got time, you could lose it!! I am sorry, but that is not what I wanted to hear... I was PISSED! Mainly at myself but then realized how much work I would actually have to put in... Oh geez. I hate working out... I thought... This totally blows!!! You know your family will always love you no matter what.. No matter how big you get, but the dress was definitely a turning point for me because other people besides my family would be looking at me... Taking photos of me that would be forever documented in my sister's wedding! Geez.... I sure did feel the pressure!! I went home grumbling and mad at the world like it was it's fault... Nope it was all mine. I just keep thinking how many hours of exercise I would actually have to do.... Was not looking forward to that all!!
