This is going well! (She says, after just one day....) I met my goal Monday eating less than 19 tsp. of added sugars. AND, I went to a kickboxing class getting a solid hour of exercise into my day as well. *Punch, Jab, Cross* It was awesome! I don't exercise (more than just walking) very often, and I love waking up SORE! :) It's been a good start for the week! Although, we did go grocery shopping yesterday. I should've taken a picture of what we bought...
...because I'm sure you would've laughed and shook your head at us.
"Oh, goodness, are you not trying to limit your sugar intake? Then why in the world are there bakery snickerdoodles, 4 varieties of lemonade, graham crackers, white chocolate chips, and 2 Theo chocolate bars in your cart?!?" I imagine that's exactly what you would say to me, gradually getting louder as you list off each item. And yes! I caved, I bought not just one, but TWO Theo chocolate bars. They had a new flavor I hadn't tried yet. But mostly I credit it to writing about it in yesterday's post, and then couldn't stop thinking about how much I wanted one afterwards. (Addict, no?)
But, I only ate 1/6 of it yesterday (4.3g) and that was plenty. That 70% cocoa in the bar really satisfies quickly, and it's oh so delicious.
I really am partial to Theo Chocolates not only because they're located in Seattle, their products are organic and Fair Trade. Integrated pest management protects cocoa farmers and the environment from damaging pesticides. I am in support of anything organic, something I hope to write about more. But, until then, how about a giveaway?
