Cleanse Pt. 2

By on October 7, 2017
My lunch smoothie, snack juice, kombucha and morning smoothie

So here’s what I got out of this cleanse:

When I woke up the third day of the cleanse, I finally saw the flat stomach I was looking for – no more bloat. The first and second days I was feeling a little blah probably from my stomach getting used to all the liquid. But on the third day, I felt good.

My main goal in doing a cleanse is to just feel better, a little lighter and to reset. I don’t want to see that I’ve lost a magical 5 lbs or anything because Lord knows I’m going to gain that right back the day after.

Cleanse, Pt. 1

By on October 3, 2017

So I decided to do a cleanse this week. It just felt right.

I know, I know – diets don’t work, cleanses don’t work. But I don’t do cleanses to magically lose weight. Yes, I do feel lighter and maybe a little skinner after doing a cleanse but I’m well aware it isn’t permanent.

I do cleanses to reset. I also try to cut down on caffeine while I do these because I’m always somehow drinking more and more coffee.

Grocery shopping

By on April 20, 2017

Grocery shopping…I hate it. So much. I’m so distracted every time I go to the store it takes me ridiculously longer than it should. I could just really live without it.

It depends how much time I have/where I feel like driving but typically I shop at Harris Teeter, Whole Foods or Trader Joes.

Each week:
Bananas – for smoothies and before gym in the morning
Strawberries
Pineapple
Lemons – for my morning drink
Cuties clementines – yes I’m a kid
Broccoli
Brussel Sprouts
Carrots
Eggs
Egg whites
Wholly guacamole mini individual packs
Lara Bars – Peanut Butter and Jelly is EVERYTHING and Blueberry Muffin

Fooood.

By on April 2, 2017

Who doesn’t love food? Or eating? I LOVE food. Love it so much. And I do eat healthy for the most part, whether I’m in the habit or working out or not, but when I want something bad and I eat it, it’s like a downward spiral for that entire day. It’s like everything goes out the window – I’m being a fatty for the day.

Anywhoooo, breakfast. Favorite meal. Will absolutely not eat lunch or dinner food for breakfast but I can eat breakfast all day long.

Here’s the green smoothie I like to make almost every morning that actually tastes good:
2 cups flax milk
2 bananas
2 scoops green powder
1 tsp maca powder
1 scoop pre workout
1/4 of a lemon
Handful of frozen spinach
I like to blend this first and then…
Add frozen strawberries, pineapples and mangos (about a handful and a half)
