$25 Dick's Sporting Goods Gift Card Giveaway Sponsored by TRX Training Pittsburgh XShadyside

I know you all love free stuff just as much as I do, so I agreed to write a sponsored post so that I could give you the opportunity to win a $25 Dick's Sporting Goods gift card! All opinions are mine alone!

What is TRX Training?

According to the TRX Training Pittsburgh XShadyside website, their "TRX Suspension class offers a full-body challenge. TRX is a total body exercise system that leverages gravity and your bodyweight to perform a wide variety of exercises". You're in control of how challenging your workout is because you are using suspension and body weight-- with a change of position, you can add or decrease the resistance making the workout more difficult or easier.

The TRX company describes its system as "drawing on leading-edge research and best practices from the military, pro sports, and academic institutions". They are on top of leading edge research and the workout continues to evolve.

What are the benefits of TRX Training?

TRX Training requires just one piece of equipment, and with that you can train just about every muscle in your body. It's inexpensive and can be used by beginners and pro athletes alike. The TRX equipment is lightweight and small enough to fit into your gym bag and you most certainly can do TRX Training anywhere as this YouTube Video shows!

Little Victories!

Yesterday was a little more of a challenge. I was hungry all day and was really craving sweets.

I actually broke down and baked a cake mix and whipped up a little frosting. I was feeling really guilty about it but continued to tell myself what I recently learned in my Beat Binge Eating program.

There is nothing wrong with a small sweet treat.

I ate one piece and felt satisfied, yet there was something about that feeling of "cheating" that started to get to me. I wanted to go back into the kitchen and have more.

I stood at the stove and looked at the cake. I had a silent conversation with myself and asked, "If this cake were unlimited and I could eat it whenever I wanted to without any guilt, would I still want another piece?" The answer was no.

And so that was it! I only ate one piece and I felt very satisfied! The sweets craving went away and I continued on with my evening.

That's a HUGE triumph for me!

I admit, I am still battling those thoughts of the "all or nothing" mentality. I keep telling myself that it takes little steps and consistency.

Someone commented the other day about my eating habits and deeper issues. You mentioned that maybe I needed to let go of the shakes.

Deep down, I know you are right. I keep fighting it, hoping for different results. I have friendships intertwined with this program and that makes it a little tougher to try to let go of. Although, I don't want to let go of it 100% because I do believe it makes me feel better. I just have to make it my own, and that's what I'm trying to do!

So like you said, I shouldn't feel guilty for eating a salad with a shake. If that's what helps keep me on track to healthier living-- that's perfectly ok!
