If you have been following me on this blog, you know that I go to the gym a lot. This week I only went to the gym on Thursday and I currently have no guilt about it and FEEL GREAT! This week has finally proven to me that you can not out exercise a bad diet. This journey so far has been a huge learning experience for me. A week ago, if I told you I had only gone to they gym once during that week, I would have been full of guilt and felt like crap. Today I have no guilt and I feel great! When this 28 day journey is over, I know that I can not go back to old habits. I have to change the way I eat, especially on the weekends.
This morning I made myself a veggie omelette. I am sorry I didn’t take a picture. It was so delicious I couldn’t wait to eat it! I also had my probiotic and detox tea. I ate breakfast kind of late so I didn’t need a mid morning snack.
This afternoon we were going to our local town’s Spring Fest so I knew eating lunch out there was not an option, because it was going to be all carnival type food. Before we left I made myself a Green Apple Goodness Smoothie which consisted of 2 scoops of Arbonne Essentials Vanilla Protein, half of a green apple, teaspoon of almond butter, dash of cinnamon, almond milk and a couple of cubes of ice. Blend and enjoy. Instead of adding one scoop of the Arbonne Fiber Boost I added 2 to keep myself extra full, so I would not cave to temptation. The smoothie was delicious it tasted like apple pie to me. I did great at the festival, the smoothie kept me full and satiated the entire time we were there. When we got back I had a fit chew and brown rice and black bean tortilla with humus.
For dinner I had a treat. I am allowed red meat once a week on this detox. The portion has to be the size of my fist and the meat has to be grass-fed. We usually eat grass-fed beef so that wasn’t an issue. I was worried about only eating a portion the size of my fist ha ha ha!
We also grilled some broccoli and zucchini seasoned with light olive oil Trade Joe’s house seasoning, paprika, oregano and garlic powder. It was a very delicious and satisfying dinner! I have the first Saturday under my belt now on to Sunday day 7!
