Workout goal- make it through the half marathon hahahahaha! This was my worst training period ever. I did not train like I should have but I have run half marathons before and I have been running so I should be ok, but I can pretty much guarantee no PR will be being set so I am just going to go out and have fun.

Days 10 & 11 of 28 day cleanse

Once again these 2 days were pretty similar

Juice for breakfast

She hates having her photo taken.

Lunch was a salad both days and both days I had a burger for dinner. I was craving it hahaha. And both days the burger 100% hit the spot.

Wednesday I ran 2 miles in the morning before work.

Thursday I went to a local park and busted out 5 miles! With Artemis.

It wasn’t too hot thankfully but she hit every water source she could find hahaha.

How are your workouts/eating going?

Day 8 & 9 of 28 day cleanse

I ate almost the exact same thing both days so i combined it into one post.

Breakfast Monday morning

Green juice

Salad for a snack at work, i ate it before i could take a picture hahaha

Grocery outlet had the more expensive slightly healthier soup so i tried it

The soup was really flipping good!!!! Well for a canned soup anyways lol

How’s it going this fine July morning?

School is going good but the subject matter is getting more and more in-depth so my study time is increasing. But I am still loving it!!!! It is all so interesting! I just have to take it day by day otherwise I get overwhelmed at the thought of all the information I need to absorb in the next few years.

Back to mostly juice!!!

Here is my morning juice, it was 3 carrots, some ginger, 1 apple and 2/3 of a peach (I had to cut off parts that were going bad). I was a little surprised at how happy I was getting back to juice this morning. Like my recycling of the Gatorade bottle hahaha.

Lunch 

I drank half my 2nd juice before lunch and half after

This was 1 cucumber, 3 celery and an orange…i think thag was it. 

Dinner was spaghettios and a quesadilla. 

Ive decided Sunday is going to be a lean in day and the 3 official days will be mon, tues and wed. This way i can head to my Bfs for dinner Sunday nights if our schedules allows it. 

How was your weekend?

Day 7 of 28 day cleanse

Today is a prime example of what happens when you don’t prep. I was tired from hiking and didn’t prep anything Friday night and woke up late Saturday morning so I had no time to make anything, I also slept horribly and needed coffee. Insert Starbucks here.

Breakfast was the reduced fat turkey bacon sandwich. I did have leftover pasta and garlic bread for lunch thankfully.

This was snack:

How is it possible that something that should be pretty healthy for you is so many weight watchers points????? All the individual components are good for you.

When I got home this had arrived from Amazon! Can’t wait to start coloring and learning!

This happened, my roommates made butterfinger cream cheesecake kind of think. Holy crap was it rich, that is the actual size piece I took, minus one bite and that was more than enough. Sugar coma totally.

To combat the sugar coma I had a quesadilla I microwaved and a salad then read and went to bed.

And with that I am ready to get back to my 3 days of juicing!!!!!

Overall the last 4 days I feel pretty good about what I ate. The dessert wasn’t great and I had some cookies before the hike on Friday and Red Robin isn’t the healthiest choice but overall I think I did pretty good.

Ready to start week 2?!

Day 6 of 28 and hiking review of salmon river trail

Happy Saturday morning!!!

Yesterday the BF and I headed out for a little hike. We slept in and had smoothies for breakfast, I worked a little bit on flashcards for my Medical terminology class and had the last little 1/4th of a cup of smashed potatoes before we headed out. It was just over an hours drive to the trail so we stopped just before we got there for something to drink and cookies hahahaha. The trail was nice, mostly shaded and not too many people, we passed maybe a dozen people so I was able to let Artemis off her leash for about 3/4 of it.

Most of the trail meandered near the Salmon river, which was pretty shallow.

Lots of trees equaled lots of shade. Though being near the river it was a bit muggy.

We did an out an back trail so we stopped at mile 3.3 to turn around and head back. I brought a tortilla, 2 pieces of ham and some cheese and we shared a tortilla roll up for some energy to get us back.

It was a lot of rolling hills so we ended up running back about 2 of the 3 miles, maybe a little more. We made it back to the car pretty quick which was really nice. We decided to go out to Red Robin for dinner for some big juicy burgers, but I was good and got a side salad instead of fries. It was delicious. That was my day!

I really like the trail. AND Artemis went into the river!!!!!! She has never done this, normally I have to stand really still by the edge and coax her down and scoop handfuls of water for her to drink, this time she actually got in the water! More than once! Breakthrough!!!!!!

Day 5 of 28 day cleanse

Today wasn’t so cleansy hahahaha. It wasn’t bad, i didn’t eat out or anything and everything was very simple but it wasn’t as healthy as it could have been….. but I’m ok with that.  

Breakfast was good, a smoothie

Lunch wasn’t terrible,  it was a salad with a simple quesadilla i made, but the diet coke was bad. 

Dinner was pasta with sun dried tomato pesto to which we added garlic and chopped up tomatos, store bought garlic bread and a glass of wine. It was simple and delicious and I don’t regret it one bit!

The bf and i watched the movie ‘the way’ while we ate and then cuddled on the couch. It was a wonderful night.  

Day 4 of 28 day cleanse

I get food!!!!!! Actually today wasn’t that different. I had a smoothie for breakfast

Then i made smashed potatoes from red potatoes with earth balance butter,  cheese and green onions. I had about 3/4 of a cup of the potatoes for lunch then around 4:30 i had a salad

Dinner around 7:30pm was the smashed potatoes but i was hungry and forgot to take a picture. 

I was starving when i got home so i made a quick, easy and simple quesadilla 

And now its bed time. Food is sooooo good!!!!!. 

So far stomach is doing better, bloating was noticeably less today and so far im down 1.6lbs. So now i just need to not let myself get carried away until i go back to juice on Sunday.  

I’ll keep you posted.  

Day 3 of 28 day cleanse

Today was a smoothie day instead of juicing and I got in just over 3 miles on the treadmill.

I am still so excited for dinner though!!!! It is amazing how excited about food I am. Dinner is the same as the last two days but tomorrow starts 4 days of just trying to do healthy non-processed food and I cannot wait!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am already salivating over dinner tomorrow night and Thursday night. I am feeling good though, there is still some bloat but overall I am starting to feel much better. Can’t wait to see how this keeps going!

Talk to you tomorrow!
