Detox day 5.

It won’t be perfect, but I will do my best to only eat minimally processed foods, cut back on dairy and meat, and only have coffee sometimes. I really have enjoy the switch from coffee to herbal tea. I get just enough caffeine to jump start my day, without being up all night! Anyways, I hope you all have a wonderful Friday evening. I will be sober sam over here! Have a glass of wine for me will ya? πŸ™‚

Ready for day 3!

Start of “detox” Day 1.

I am not detoxing detoxing. No crazy meals or pills. I am simply trying to eat as clean and nutritional as possible. I am using this as my guideline-

Basically giving up coffee and most processed foods for seven days. Today has been a success. I have a lot more energy.

I woke up and had- Continue reading “Start of “detox” Day 1.”

Tuesday Surprise.

Today has been interesting. My husband and I decided to go out for breakfast this morning. We ended up at this cute little cafe by our house called The Cracked Egg. It’s basically a dive, but good “cheep” food (it’s theme is rooster, chicken, eggs decor). I got a combo for seven dollars. It included 2 over easy eggs, turkey bacon, homestyle potatoes, and biscuits and gravy. Was it healthy? Probably not the healthiest. Do I regret it? NO! It was yummy πŸ™‚ Sometimes you just have to live a bit. I ended up leaving some biscuit and 1 whole egg behind. Iced tea to drink.

On our way home I saw the cutest little dog on the side of the road. Of course I made my husband pull over. He had a tag on with his phone number and name. Before I could call his owners, “Reese” took off. It took a few minutes of cardio, but I caught up to him and successfully returned him to his owner. Little Reese was almost to the highway, so I am glad I could help him and his family.

This afternoon we had some time to visit our blue crab hole…..

Lunch was blue crabs on top of a salad.

Dinner was lightened up fish parmesan and broccoli. I used just a few bread crumbs, a bit of parm, and a bit of egg whites to coat the filets. Baked with tomato slices, and a bit of italian cheese. Perfect.

Not every single day will be perfect. You might not get a 1000 calorie burn day, or you might have a not so healthy breakfast. The point is balance. It’s not about being “perfect” it’s about living. I hope you guys had a great day πŸ™‚
