With lots of time not running the past few days I spent it doing really important things like finishing all the seasons of Mad Men on Netflix and Pinteresting (now a verb, I believe) my way through future workouts, running gear, and infographics. I love infographics; the clean lines, information, organization, oh, me and my Type A personality. Look to see some of my favorites in the next few weeks.
Here is one about sugar consumption (from Forbes.com) something I struggle with all the time. A dumpster worth in my lifetime!??? EEK! I fall into that trap of oh, I just ran so I can eat _________ (fill in the blank with your favorite sweet treat). I’m sure I’m not the only one…right?! It is easy to forget that what we put into our bodies is equally as important as what we ask our bodies to do. How can we ask our bodies to perform at a high level, when we fuel it with junk? Something to think about anyway. As I work on this clean eating process, I’m trying to make sure more of my sugar comes from natural sweet things like the amazing strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries we were eating today. The real thing really is so much sweeter.
What is your sugar trap? How do you overcome it?
