If you missed my post on how I’m setting goals differently in 2019, you may want to read that first. In a nutshell, I am focusing on ONE thing and one thing only each month to change. Because old ladies ???????? get set in their ways, it’s hard to change a million things at once. Therefore, I made a list of different things I want to completely eliminate from my diet, or add to my daily routines and will change slowly over the course of the year. It will be easier for me because obviously what I’ve done in the past hasn’t worked. I gave up three days in. ???? . That brings me to my January Health Goal.
I LOVE COFFEE. I mean I don’t understand how anyone can function without it . And since we have the best coffee maker in the universe, it makes it more fun to drink! Back in January 2018, we followed the Whole30 plan for most of the month. There is no sugar or dairy allowed. Therefore, I familiarized myself with Nutpods coffee creamer. Basically it’s almond and coconut milk which is allowed on that program. I slipped up a few months into the new year and started using my janky creamer that is filled with tons of sugar and nasty chemicals.
Well, I have been keeping a secret from you all this month because I really did start my January Health Goal. I ditched my nasty chemical filled coffee creamer for Nutpods again. If I don’t have Nutpods, I have been drinking my coffee black. While I still think sugary creamer in my coffee tastes mighty delicious, ???? I have noticed a few things that aren’t happening since switching to Nutpods. I used to finish my coffee and be RAVENOUS…. like I was ready to eat a HUGE breakfast. My sugar levels spiked high first thing in the morning with the coffee creamer and I could tell as soon as they started dropping. STARVING. Since drinking my coffee black or using Nutpods, I don’t have that sugar drop. Therefore, allowing me to eat smaller portions for breakfast and even eating later in the morning. Which if you are doing any intermittent fasting, that’s a good thing. ????
If you think about it, not only will I feel better from the more stable sugar levels, but all of the calories that I was consuming in my beloved half creamer half coffee will be saved. And, that’s a WIN/WIN in the term of long term goals. That alone should show a few poundages gone. I will keep you updated on how this coffee situation has gone when I check in with you on February 1 and share what my next goal is. I have my life planner marked with all of the changes I want to accomplish this year and I really feel like this will work better for me.
Have you guys done anything like this? Or are you a go-full-force type of a person? Let me know in the comments. You can always find me over on Facebook or Instagram ….. where we have more fun than one should be allowed to have. ????
