So, it is almost midnight, which would start Day 7... but, I can't sleep, so let's read about days 5 and 6.
Day 5 - Saturday - The weekends on the cleanse are always the hardest. Not, because I want to eat out and have all my cheat meals (okay, maybe that is true), but also because I don't get my water intake completed because I'm usually so busy.
Breakfast: A boiled egg and half an avocado. I was headed out for a run and it needed to be light.
My first official half marathon is at the end of March, therefore it was time I got off my 4 week running strike and outside. It was not fun. I had aches from not running for so long, I was preoccupied in my own thoughts, I couldn't get my breathing regulated, etc. Yet, I got out there. Not every run is your best run. What matters is that you did it.
After my run I came back to put dinner in the crockpot. My friend introduced me to cabbage soup a while back and I thought I'd hate it. It always smelled foul, I guess due to the cabbage. It is basically a vegetable soup, but with cabbage.
Meanwhile, this is happening:
My 5 year old daughter loves building forts, and because she is an only child, she likes her parents to be IN the fort WITH her. This was our attempt at all being in there at once. To save our sanity, we went out to lunch.
Genghis Grill is one of my absolute favorite places to eat! I love that I can get a medium sized bowl, but fill it to the overflowing top of yummy goodness. The only part not on the cleanse was the sauce I added.
I usually ALWAYS get a starch. Today I chose brown rice (cleanse friendly) and knew to get it on the side so I could control the portion size. However, once I started eating all the yummy bowl goodness, I did not miss the starch and therefore, did not eat the brown rice. WIN! May start doing this from now on..
For dinner I ate the cabbage soup.
For a snack, I had bananas, walnuts, cinnamon, and vanilla stevia drops. Very yummy when I wanted something sweet.
Day 6 - A super busy day ahead of me with not many pictures.
This afternoon I attended a bridal show with one of my besties getting married in October. Always a fun and exciting time. I did have two 1x1 inch cake samples... seriously, they were no bigger than 1x1 inch square, haha... greedy cake people!
After the bridal show I had to book it to Irving for a Pure Romance training seminar. I started selling Pure Romance last January, and I LOVE it! If you're interested..
So, while on the road I ate 2 oz of almonds.
Dinner: Advocare Meal Replacement Shake - Chocolate Mocha and a bowl mixed fruit (watermelon, pineapple, and blackberries)
Snack: Another apple with PB2.
That was my day. Typically, I would have eaten more, but being on the road and in meetings curved that a bit,
Whew! Once again, very impressed with my cravings lately. A lot of girls ate pizza tonight for dinner and it didn't even look good to me. I love pizza.. however, it was easy for me to just socialize while I drank my shake and they ate their pizza. Moving forward!
