Fat Tuesday Volume: I still don’t know!

So it’s still Fat Tuesday because I’m still fat. I would have hoped that after six months, I would be a lot closer to “a little chunky”, but my fat loves me and does not want to leave! Also, I have FINALLY come to the realization that I am going to have to sacrifice even more deeply for many more months if I’m ever going to be happy with my fitness. I think most of those deeper sacrifices will have to come in the form of food. While I am doing a lot better, I still really crave sweets and bread. I am mostly eating a primal diet. I am actually very happy with it. I just need to keep doing it, so that my tastes continue to change and I think my cravings will continue to dissipate.

The thing I have really noticed since starting to eat this way is that I hate grocery shopping a little less. It’s so much easier when you don’t even need to go down most of the aisles in the grocery store. I have stopped couponing for the most part. There are very few coupons available for most of what I buy. I do still check Target’s coupon site most of the time before I go there, and the next time I need to load up on medicine I will be sure to clip some coupons. But even all the great coupons they have for personal care and beauty items don’t cover the brands I buy.

What about you? How did your fitness goals fare this summer? Have you been using coupons consistently?

  1. Surprisingly, my fitness goals have stayed on track this summer. I’ve even started tackling a new goal – C25K. I WILL RUN A 5K!! Hopefully! I’m like you in that the things I buy don’t usually have coupons. I will use them for a few things that I buy on a regular basis (cheerios mainly). I don’t buy things that we don’t eat just to use a coupon. Good luck on your fitness goals. Think of it this way, at least you’re still working on it & haven’t given up!


    • Congrats, Traci! You have been doing so great! Thanks for the pep talk and I hope you have great time this weekend when you head up to my neck of the woods. 🙂


  2. Whenever I watch those couponing shows I’m always appalled by what they buy – only the worst food ever has coupons! And just by sticking with a better diet I think you’ve succeeded – congrats!


    • Hey Megan! I completely agree about the food. There are mostly just coupons for crap food. Hopefully, this will change in the future. Great to hear from you. 🙂
