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.
