This week, salt is the enemy. I know I lose my sugar-addicted folks here, but I would take something salty over chocolate and sweets a-n-y day. Today I woke up wanting turkey bacon, which escalated to wanting regular bacon, which spiked into a full blown kettle-chip—or wait, even yummier— french-fries craving by lunch. My blood pressure breathed a sigh of relief because I didn’t give in to any of these cravings…today. But the fight is real.

The funny thing is, salt is not an ever-constant villain – it isn’t that hard to avoid eating a list of these salty infiltrators in the same day. But during weeks like this one, I do have to come up with tricks to keep temptations at bay. Right now, nuts are my favorite go-to option, and today I closed my eyes and my handful of lightly salted peanuts and almonds tasted just like bacon, kettle chips and fries. Ok. Maybe not. But those nuts slowed my craving down long enough to remember that salt will not be the victor in this week’s journey.

Most of us have been on one…our own Fit Journey. One that we’ve kick-boxed, salad-nibbled, smoothie-drenched, green-juiced, spin-classed, scale-stalked, weight-lifted, bike-laned and Zumba-sweated our way through. I’m a long-time member of the Be Fit Fam, and this is my Fit Journey. I hope you will let Be Fit Brooklyn shape yours.
