detoxify my life

Day 21

Hlaf way through and I’ve been so half-assed.  It’s REALLY hard to eat clean let alone cut out all sugar when you’re commuting 1.5 hours to work each day, working 10 hour days, and busy all weekend.  No time to prepare!  I have been eating whole foods as much as possible, taking my probiotics and weaning down on coffee though! 

Quinoa salad with salmon

Breakfast: 2 eggs with avocado

Lunch: Bowl of cereal

Late afternoon: PB&banana sandwich

WholeBodyEcology Day 8-11

Sick with the flu (which I think I got from one of my teammates). I don’t think I’m ever eating meatloaf again!  Survived for 2 days on saltines, then I struggled to find things that I could stomach for a few days.  I’m finally feeling better and have started getting back on track towards the end of Day 10.

WholeBodyEcology Day 5

Woke up at 8:45am because I work from home on Mondays and my body really needed the extra sleep after losing an hour to daylight savings on Saturday night. 

Breakfast: coffee with coconut milk and stevia (Looking back, I should have made a green smoothie but before I knew it, the clock said 11am)

Late morning: eggs with asparagus, spinach and red peppers

Mid-afternoon: roasted red potatoes

Around dinner time: 2 handfuls of almonds and chia pudding

It’s now 630 and I haven’t really eaten dinner yet.  I’m waiting for Jay to get home from work around 830 so we can go grocery shopping together.  Then I’ll try to throw a quick meal together and pack my lunch before I head to bed.  Bad to eat before bed, I know!

{update} I made some poor decisions this evening because I was starving and didn’t feel like cooking anything.  I made a meal plan for the rest of the week, but never thought about what to have TONIGHT!  Anywho, after Jay and I did our lap around the grocery store for some good eats (well, good for me but not so good stuff for him), we realized we had nothing planned for dinner.  So we ended up grabbing frozen pizzas (a vegan one for me), and headed home to heat it up.  We ended up eating this not so great dinner around 9:30pm. :(

But the good news is that this week WILL get better. While the pizza was in the oven, I cut up some veggies for breakfast and made my lunch. I’ve got this.  :)

WholeBodyEcology Days 3&4

As it turns out, the WholeBodyEcology Program is not really easy to do when you’re playing (and coaching) in a 2-day volleyball tournament where coolers are not allowed.  I tried my best to stick to the program today but later on I found myself hungry with no “approved foods” available to me at the Convention Center.

Day 3:

Breakfast: Eggs with asparagus and red peppers

Mid-morning: Green Tea

Lunch: Greem Smoothie, Can of salmon with Mayo and fresh dill, and a couple of bites of boiled red potatoes with sauerkraut 

Mid-afternoon: some fruit & quinoa bar thingy

Late afternoon: 2 bags of Stacy’s pita chips

Dinner: Chicken Curry with jasmine rice 

I know I ate something when I finally got home at 10:15pm, but can’t remember what it was… It was a really long day for me and my memory sucks!

Day 4: 

Breakfast: eggs with asparagus, green smoothie

Lunch: Turkey sandwich and a cherry pie larabar

Dinner#1: coleslaw and a protein shake

Dinner #2: quinoa & amaranth pancakes with butter
