This morning I woke up and wanted to be Lilly for a day.
My work-life balance this past week hasn’t been very balanced. Work is busy of course, but to make my world extra hectic I started taking classes to become a yoga teacher!
I’m really excited about my teacher training. It is something I have wanted to do for a couple years. The only down side to it is that it is very time consuming. I have 5 hours of classes I have to go to, plus commute time, plus homework.
Ok, I will stop complaining now. I realize this doesn’t sound like the greatest challenge anyone has ever faced. And it isn’t. This is something I’m doing for fun. Learning is fun!
What it really means is, I haven’t had time to get in the kitchen to make anything new to share on this here blog.
This is what I ate every day this week.
Breakfast: “Thin Mint” protein shake
Snack sometimes: a grapefruit
Lunch: Green Curry
Dinner: Salad made of leafy greens, black beans, brown rice and topped with Creamy Cilantro Lime Dressing
This weekend I have high hopes of getting in the kitchen.
I have been on my cleanse now for over 4 weeks and it has gotten much easier! My chocolate and sugar cravings have pretty much gone away. Of course, if you put cookies in front of me I’m going to start drooling and then I would probably cry because I can’t have any. But I’m good, I swear! I have gotten in to a good groove with my meals and I feel totally satisfied! I actually feel really good and I when this cleanse is over in another month I don’t really want to introduce much sugar back in to my life. I think I’m better off without it!
I will be back soon with something more interesting, I promise!
