My New Year's Resolution For The Second Time

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of The Low Carb Grocery. All opinions are 100% mine.

It is very disappointing and can be very depressing at times when you have set a goal and are unsuccessful. Last year, one of my New Year's Resolutions was to get back to my weight before I got pregnant with my second child. I tried exercising and eating less and the more I do it, the more hungry I get which led to more weight gain! I am truly disappointed of myself. I thought for sure that I could easily shed off the extra weight not having to do any special diets like I did after I had my first child!
But I guess I was wrong. And I think I know some of the reasons why I am not losing weight. First is because I am getting older and we all know that as you get older, your metabolism slows down too. That's why I try to exercise as much as I can to boost my metabolism but sometimes it is really hard, especially when I lose my motivation due to stress and other things that distract my focus. Another reason why my exercising is not really working I think is because, I am eating too much food high in carbs! I've craved so much Filipino foods and usually if I fix my native food, I always have rice with it! I tried substituting white rice with brown rice but they just don't taste the same.

Anyway, so I've decided that I will give it another shot and make it my only resolution this coming New Year! I am gonna have to make an extra effort and try harder to make it possible to get back in shape. My reason is not only so I can look good or sexy but I want to have energy and be healthy as well. I may have to do some kind of special diet to help me. If it is what it takes to help me lose weight, so be it.

Since one of my problems is eating food high in carbs, the first thing that I have to do is to change that by eating less carbs. One of the things that I've come across doing some research online about low carb diet is this PB2 Powdered Peanut Butter. This is not the first time I have heard about this product. So I clicked the link and brought me to the The Low Carb Grocery Store.

It seems like this online Canadian-based store offers low carb products that you can fix for breakfast, lunch, dinner and even snacks. Some of the low carb products they are offering are low carb pasta, low carb bagels, low carb breads, shirataki noodles, low carb snacks, low carb muffins, and low carb pancakes. And to be honest, their prices are very reasonable. I think I'm gonna try out their Powdered Peanut Butter first since my family and I loves peanut butter. What I love about this particular product is, it is powder-based which I can easily mix with other food!

So anyway, how about you guys, were you successful with your last year's resolutions? What's your New Year's resolution this year? If it's anything related to weight loss, why don't we try this low carb diet together? Visit The Low Carb Grocery Store  and try any of the products they carry to start the New Year healthy!
