This Week’s Macros (Staying the same):
I am keeping them the same macros as last week….Why mess with something if it is working???
Confession time…I broke and used the rest of the Coffeemate in my fridge. I couldn’t waste it, right? So how do I explain the fact that I bought more? By telling you that I am human.
I have been chewing gum crazy for years (like more than a pack a day) and gave it up a few weeks before I began my 8 Weeks to 40 plan and I have managed to NOT chew ANY gum since then which I consider a victory! I have also managed to stay away from frozen yogurt for the last 4 weeks and if you look through my Instagram feed you will see plainly that it was a weekly habit and one that was overflowing with candy toppings. I have decided that I can give myself some grace and break my Coffeemate habit at a later date.
I did experience some hunger again this week, however that is to be expected and will be rectified soon when I begin my Reverse Diet in a few weeks. I was also a little sluggish on some days, but that seemed to coincide with the days when we had grey Fall weather (that ALWAYS gets me). I’m a girl of the sun…I don’t care if it is cold as long as the sun is out.
As I mentioned above I am planning on keeping the same macros this week. Oftentimes people have this odd itch to switch-up their macros and speed-up the weight loss. I want to preserve my muscle and keep any fat loss nice and slow so I do not dip in to that muscle I have been working so hard to build.
I’m half way through my planned cut and excited to see what the next 4 weeks bring.

This is amazing, I too have had a gum habit for years, I was at my worst chewing three packs a day of ‘sugarfree’ gum too, nasty!! I also love frozen yoghurt and still allow myself 2 scoops if I go to the movies. 😉 It’s hard stuff to get off, and it ruins your teeth! I was amazed how the abs return after giving that stuff up and you begin to taste food again. :/ Go the victory!
I am still not chewing gum and my tummy thanks me!
