My Obsession Has Stalled Me

I really over did it and now I see it, but I’m back on schedule. What happened? I love, love peanut butter. Almond butter is okay like it, but I love peanut butter.

For the past 3 weeks I’ve had peanut butter in so many ways. First of all I usually have PB2 for my shakes (Shakeology), the powder had less calories and high protein . But I had peanut butter as a snack, yep just off the spoon, peanut butter sandwich. Oh yeah I rarely eat bread so uh huh. I had fried peanut butter sandwich, made snacks with oatmeal, peanut butter and Shakeology blend. I had sauce for my veggies, you guessed it the main ingredient “peanut butter”.

Now usually this is not a problem when I’m lifting weights and heavy workouts but that’s not the current situation. My current workout is a dance workout. Let me explain it is so much fun, the moves, the music and you sweat like crazy and continue even after the shower. If you’re a calorie conscious person I burn 240 to 285 in 25 to 30 minutes not bad. There are days weights are used in this workout but not heavy. The explanation is because my obsession with peanut butter was so much greater than what I needed for protein.
On the obsession phase I didn’t consume my usual proteins other than my super food shake. My protein sources are my shakes, protein bar, fish, tofu sometimes PB2. But I excluded my usual and this was not good.

But I’m back on target, I’ll be using my color coded containers to assist with Portion Control. Recognizing when we get off course is great, but even better is to implement what’s necessary to get back on track. For me this applies to my fitness and nutrition journey; but it’s applicable to any journey in your life.

Today I say never give up, don’t stop, as humans we sway but use your positive, inner most strength and get back on track to your goals. Great travels on journey.
