We’re almost at the end of our ten day cleanse. I am excited to jump on that scale to see how much weight I have lost during these last ten days. I have been patient about checking on my progress, but I definitely feel and see the change in the way my clothes fit. YIPPEE… and this isn’t the end of it for me either. I’m going to continue on the cleanse for another week to support my cousin on her journey. Then, I’m going to start hitting the gym again and going back to my pilates and yoga classes, which I miss so very much!
Before you know it, the spring will be here and the sun will be shining down on our faces. There won’t be any more snow on the ground and the trees will start growing buds. Oooooo I can NOT wait. Spring is my favorite time of the year and this spring we have so much to celebrate! Our little Benny is turning ONE on May 14th, Lilliana is turning TWELVE on June 3rd, Lucas is turning EIGHT on July 19th and Mike is hitting the BIG 40 on August 15th. We have a lot of birthday celebrations this spring/summer! Oh yea, and I am turning 39 on April 26th. I officially begin all the birthday celebrations for the year :)
But, let’s not get ahead of ourselves just yet…. we are still knee deep in winter, yuk!
So, yesterday on our 9th day, I started with my morning cup of water water with lemon. Followed by a couple Mini Vegetable Frittatas. I love these, they are delicious, healthy and so easy to make.
For lunch, I had sushi. Wait. I had to work yesterday and stopped at Whole Foods on my way down and it was lunch time so I was hungry. They have so much to choose from there so I was going to get a salad because they have an amazing salad bar. However, the sushi was calling out to me…. I love sushi and my favorite is the Shrimp Tempura rolls especially with that spicy sauce they put on top, yum! So, I gave in a little and it was so yummy. I had them make it with avocado and cucumber too and roll it in a brown rice/quinoa mixture, so it wasn’t too off the cleanse routine, lol. Now, that I am writing this post, I am craving it again right now.
As a quick snack, I had a Honeycrisp apple, which are delicious. I shared one with my brother in law who now loves these apples too. I am telling you they are worth the $3.49 per lb. Super expensive but these are organic and so sweet. Nothing beats these apples from Whole Foods, they have the best produce!
For dinner, I had some vegetable soup that my friend brought over to us. She’s so sweet. Benny was really sick this past week and she is always so kind and brought over some yummy, comforting, vegetable soup for all of us. Love her.
When I finished with the soup, I was craving some chocolate. I almost wanted to pull out one of our homemade Gluten Free Fudge Brownies from the freezer, but I resisted the temptation and opted for a Chocolate Almond Smoothie instead, which I shared with Mike. It hit the spot!
Just one more “official” day… see you all tomorrow.
