Have you ever got so used to doing something over and over and one day a light bulb goes off and you realize you need to stop?
In my effort to lose my baby weight, I have been working out (crazy hard) at the gym, more or less watching what I eat and drinking lots of water.
Perfect combination, right?
Except, I have been sabotaging my diet terribly.
My favorite juice
My husband loves juice. Like can’t eat food without it, if there is none in the fridge he will call me to get some or he will get some himself on the way home. When I suggest he drink some water he looks at me as if I have grown horns out of my ears.
As a result, I have begun drinking juice too regularly therefore drinking in unnecessary sugar and calories every single day. I am basically drinking on the pounds!
Which reminds me of the NYC Ad campaign that stuck with me and makes me gag every time I see it on the subway…
