Eat Clean 2014 is well underway. And I have to say, we are hitting the ball out of the park. We had friends over for dinner last night and instead of the cheesy , creamy, calorie dense food I would normally make for a dinner party I went simple and light and it was a big hit. I made a turkey- kale chili that I could seriously eat every day for the rest of my life and die a happy woman. I paired it with some home made corn bread (which I also used to make corn dogs for the kids. HUGE HIT!). I woke up not regretting a single item I put into my mouth and not feeling hungover, thanks to the fact that I stuck to seltzer and lime the whole night. I am going to call this a major win.
In fact, I woke up with so much energy that I meal planned and fitness planned right away and went straight to the grocery store after Ella woke up from her morning nap.
Monday: Run 3 miles, Lemon and Herb chicken with sugar snap peas
Tuesday: Live Love Teach yoga pod cast, Italian chicken with pasta and marinara and sweet peas
Wednesday: rest, Beef strew in the crock pot with carrots and potatoes
Thursday: Love Love Teach yoga pod cast, Roasted broccoli with parmesan cheese and walnuts over brown rice
Friday: Run 5 miles, usually Fridays are take out or out to eat night.
Of course, things happen that are unexpected throughout the week and I know that I may not be able to stick to this plan. I go into this knowing that I need to be flexible, but having a guideline for how the week should go food and fitness wise is incredibly helpful.
Now that the grocery shopping is done, and plans are all laid out I can concentrate on more important Sunday things. Like large mugs of coffee, a 6 mile run, and watching my favorite little thing play. While in a fancy Sunday tu tu of course. Happy Sunday, friends.
