Post work out feast

Lunch!! Hickory smoked tuna salad with yogurt based ranch! This huge portion is just around 300 calories. Love that you can eat more when you eat healthy!

Doesn’t every one spend their Sundays practicing pull ups? 

Yup..here I go again.

HOLY GOOD GOD!! I just had the biggest chocolate/sugar binge…..

It all started at work..my 9am session did not go how I had wanted and I was feeling a little stressed. My co-worker brought in some fudge so I thought I’d have a piece..
Whats one piece, right?
One piece turned into 5 pieces…oh well..I’ll just eat healthy the rest of the day.
WRONG!!
I have a potluck to go to tomorrow at work and I have to bring a dish. I thought I’d make these chocolate peanut butter bars because they are phenom and would make every one love me.
So I was at the grocery store getting things for these bars and it was like some mutant bad decision-making chocolate demon took over my body and I went into the bakery and I got a caramel crumb chocolate bar that I’m pretty sure Jesus baked and a white chocolate macadamien (i can’t spell macadamian) nut cookie. 
I wasn’t done yet. I grabbed some Reeses Peanut Butter cup Easter Eggs..and then the rest of the ingredients for my bars.
And..its true..I ate every last bit of it..PLUS licked the bowl to make my bars and have a few spoonfuls of peanut butter out of the jar.
I’m not at all mad at myself.
I’m perplexed. How? How did that happen?? LOL 
Then it came to me. SUGAR IS EVIL. I seriously have absolutely no problems handling my portions, what I eat, cravings..UNLESSS I have something with excessive sugar in it. 
Well..I’m not going to take it anymore! I think I’m going to COMPLETELY CUT OUT SUGAR. Yeah, I said it. I mean it too.
NOT sugar added to like condiments and things like that..because honestly that shit gets crazy and I don’t have time to get that anal about something..but everything else..cookies..chocolate…cake..other desserts. 
What do you guys thing? Good idea? Stupid? Let me know. Message me.
