I did it

A couple nights ago  I completed Day one of the cleaning challenge, and my sink looks great! Fly lady promised to have my smiling like crazy and it does make me smile. I was surprised.

 
 
There's a glass cup stopping up my sink. We don't have a sink plug. Our drain is too big. No excuses. :)
 


 
 
I wish I took a "before" picture. Oh well. Trust me that it is much prettier now. :)
Tonight's challenge starts the beginning of some new positive habits so I'm excited for that. Baby steps. 
 
 
I also went to kickboxing that night.




It's not something I get to regularly do because of my husbands work schedule and class schedule conflicts so it was nice. It's a late class so I woke up too late today for crossfit but I popped in an insanity DVD and only missed the last few minutes due to a yelling tollder. I'm feeling good. 

This was my breakfast Yesterday:



That is a crustless egg bacon onion quiche. Yes, it's green. Yes, I still ate it. It was amazing. 

Lunch I improvised. And fell in love. I had some greens and brown turkey I brought with me from home, with some veggies thrown on top. I'm not a big ground meat fan and I was worried I didn't have enough protein so I ran to the store and used their salad bar to grab some boiled eggs. I grabbed a cherry chia kombucha while I was there and viola 



Lunch is served. 

I also put stuff aside for a PWO later:


(Avocado, Veggies, and the dreaded ground turkey)

For dressing I have a concoction that I make my own. It's basically half and half grape seed  oil and balsamic vinegar with a little crushed garlic and shallot with thyme mixed in. It's really good. I just googled grapeseed oil salad dressings one day and went from there. 

I am very happy to discover my love for flavored kombucha. 



I have a sad addiction to sugar free red bull and I'm hoping this is going to be a good replacement.




What is on your plate today?

Meal Prep Monday 11/25/13

My days are a haze of dishes laundry sweeping meal prep dog poop people poop making people foods and watching people eat cake and pizza. And Ice cream.  I never realized how much junk food I was surrounded by until very recently.  But it's cool. I have coconut butter, dates, coffee and Lara bars. Life is good. :)
Sun- chicken "fingers" and sweet potato fries with mixed veg.
M- Shrimp and (leftover) chicken and "fried riced cauliflower"
T- chicken tortilla-less soup
W- breakfast for dinner - self explanatory. Easy. Cheap. Favorite.
Th- thanksgiving !! At someone else's house ;)
Fri- taco night. I have renamed pizza night taco night. Because I can. Because I'm mom. This week will be ground turkey tacos because it's the cheapest if bought in  bulk.
Sat- leftovers

Breakfast: I made myself a frittata and  hubby has breakfast sandwiches I make him. He's super picky about healthy foods and if left to his own devices lives off bagel bites and chips. Which …

Whole30 Day 14: November 2013

Two weeks in. Half way. Kinda. Almost.
Regardless, I'm doing well. Feeling well that is. Kind of bored with meals due to low funds and time. But my body is reaping benefits. I may be speaking too soon but my pull towards sweet is suddenly lessened. I know I like them and I want them kind of. But I'm okay with not having them. I'm opting out of having them. I woke up pretty happy about my skin. Partially disappointed that I will have to keep sugar out of my diet for a clear skin tone but stoked I might have found a culprit.  No breakfast picture. My dog seems to be interfering with my time schedule. He's off schedule and wants everyone on his time..... I, apparently, was meant to have a mild mannered, old dog. Sigh.  Anyway, I made a frittata over the weekend with broccoli, leftover carnitas, onion and of course egg. Had a slice this am, coffee with coconut milk and a little strawberry and banana.  Snack time: Hadn't had one of these in weeks. So much yum. 
Leftover…
