Hi guys! How has your Sunday gone?
Normally Sundays around here are chore day. I do laundry, actually make my bed (so it gets made once a week…), run errands, tidy up my room from the week’s chaos. It’s not glamorous at all.
But today I started off with a 6 mile run from my 1/2 Marathon Training Plan.
Before my run I had a mug of hot magic lemon water. I’m doing a detox off sugar again and today is day 1. I gotta get all my healthy guidelines checked off.
Max came in to be my moral support during the 6 miles. We did an out and back and I was definitely tired the last mile.
I might have ran pretty slow, but I didn’t walk at all!
BAM! Look at that awesomeness.
We rehydrated with some coconut water.
Sunday is also family brunch day. We always have lunch together. We went to Portobellos which is a fun little breakfast, lunch and wine bar.
Since I’m 198% back at clean eating starting today, I had my go-go diner breakfast. Skipping the toast and topping everything with salsa.
Coffee. 2 eggs. 2 strips of bacon. Potatoes.
Potatoes are technically a splurge since they are a simple carb and break down to sugar really quickly. But, I don’t mind having a potato or a legume as long as I’m strict with the other simple carbs.
And I just really really really love potatoes. You can’t give up the stuff you LOVE!
Max and I ran a few errands around town and literally an hour and a half after leaving brunch we were eating lunch. 6 miles will do that to ya.
We like to keep the cooking to a minimum on weekends. No dishes!!!
Chipotle veggie bowl with black beans, fajita veggies, hot salsa, medium salsa, lettuce and guac.
Under 400 calories.
The errands totally tuckered us out! So we spent the afternoon quasi napping on the sofa and eating healthy snacks.
I keep checkin’ off those healthy guidelines. Fruit, healthy fats, green tea, and lots and lots of veggies. :mrgreen:
Oh… and you can’t forget the dark chocolate.
Would you believe me if I told you I already feel better? My body is jumping for joy.
It was fend-for-yourself night.
I heated up some Roasted Red Pepper & Tomato soup for starters. Then I microwaved a veggie burger and topped it with 2 heaping handfuls of broccoli slaw and some Annie’s Goddess dressing.
I bought this entire place setting on clearance at Target yesterday. It was under $15 dollars!!!
I’m a sucker for a deal. ;-)
But they’re so cute so I didn’t get suckered in too much.
