Back in the saddlePosted: November 26, 2012
I’ve basically spent the past week eating and sleeping, there were no gym visits, there wasn’t much of anything going on except the aforementioned eating, oh and cooking of course. I did eat a lot of veggies but they were usually swimming in butter, oil, and/or cheese……mmmmmm, cheese. I also had pie, with a side of pie and whipped creams and ice creams and cookies and oh my. Not surprisingly I looked at my husband last night and said, “I feel so sorry for myself”!
It’s true eating this way not only causes a mess with my digestive system it also totally screws with me emotionally. My typical M.O. is to be super hard on myself and forget all the fun and community that I had in the last week and just wince at each “bad choice” I made and groan about the difficulty of getting back “on track”. But you know what – LIFE IS TOO SHORT. And as Kris Carr told me recently, “LIFE LOVES ME”! What kind of recipient of life’s love would I be if I start my whole woe-is-me routine? So this morning, I woke-up, hit the gym, went to the g-store, made my smoothie and sat down to talk to you fine folks, cause you know what? LIFE LOVES US ALL!
This is my “Back in the Saddle” concoction:
1 cup almond milk
1 scoop Vanilla Chai Vega
1 scoop Amazing Greens berry powder
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp cacao
1/4 tsp espresso
2 ice cubes
Giddy up ‘lil doggies, I can already feel my little light starting to shine once again.
