I have set my November goals and thought it would be great to blog about them so that everyone can see them. ACCOUNTABILITY!
1. Eat Clean a minimum of 80% of each week
2. Load up on Veggies and Fruits (minimum 5 each day)
3. Begin painting again
4. Walk 10,000 steps each day
5. Get to the gym 3 times per week
6. Work my PT at home so that I can get better quicker
and I am ready!

Yesterday was Day 11 - WAHOO!
Breakfast: greek yogurt
Snack 1: raspberries
Lunch: Turkey Loaf, gravy, corn stuffing, veggies
Snack 2: nothing
Dinner: beef tenderloin, scallop potatoes, veggies, small salad
Snack 3: nothing
Wasn't as hungry yesterday, but I was prepping for an event in the evening and I think that had something to do with it. I also drank a lot of water!!
Hoping Day 12 is success as well!

I have been MIA due to travel and a hectic work schedule. Day 6-10 have been good. I have not been 100% clean, but I am making good choices and trying to stick to eating 6 small meals per day.
My weigh-in is tomorrow morning. I am hoping for 1-2lbs lost.
Found a whole foods that is huge and amazing! I am super excited to go again this weekend. It is about 35-40 minutes away, but it is so worth it. The two that are only 15 minutes away from me are super small and the variety is limited.

Oops - I wrote an entire blog yesterday and never hit post!
Alas, Day 4 was good. I had a headache in the afternoon and a co-worker brought me my afternoon snack since I was covering in a different part of the School and couldn't leave the desk to retrieve it. That was super nice of her.
Got home and still had a headache and just felt exhausted. My hubby had a long day at work and when we got home - neither of us felt like cooking. I mentioned going to a chinese restaurant because I could get brown rice and steamed veggies. He immediately said SUSHI - which for those who know me know that I could eat sushi every single day of my life and never tire of it. I actually did eat sushi for like 17 days straight one time. But, I digress.
I looked online for good alternatives when going for sushi and found that I should eat sashimi/nigri or rolls with little to no sauces on them. I chose an eel avocado roll, a softshell crab roll, and a spicy yellowtail roll. We also had edamame. I should have not gotten the yellowtail - i was full and it wasn't that great! Lesson learned.
Overall, I am not mad at myself. I am dusting myself off for Day 5 and for the weekend. I am focused and know that it is 100% or nothing; I am learning the process and want to enjoy my life!
Day 5 is today! I started off with my greek yogurt and I have packed a 1/2 pear with cottage cheese for my morning and afternoon snacks. We did not have any left overs for today, so I am going to most likely go to a restaurant nearby that makes fresh and delicious food! Dinner is with friends tonight at their home. They are the clean eaters, so overall, I am feeling good about today and ready for the weekend.
I will most likely not post a Day 6 stand alone blog because of being out of town, but I will post Sunday for Day 6 & Day 7.
On another note, today is my 2nd session of Physical Therapy. I am still having lots of pain! Wish me well sparkfriends!

Well, a friend of mine told me that the sugar headache would come on Day 3 and boy was she right. I thought it was just a sinus headache until I realized that today is Day 3 and I have hardly had any sugar.
I am fighting through the headache and ready for Day 3. I am well prepared for at lunch so that I do not get tempted with the yummy offerings here at the School. I was almost tempted yesterday at lunch, but I held strong and am glad that I did. I splurged at dinner and had a whole wheat roll with my pork BBQ (which on some clean eating plans is acceptable) and I also went to get non-dairy frozen yogurt and only added fresh strawberries, kiwi, and sliced almonds.
Day 3 Plan
Breakfast: 2 eggs, spinach, small amt. of cheese, salsa, Almond Milk - 1/2 cup
Snack 1: Pear (1/2) and cottage cheese
Lunch: Pork BBQ (left overs) on whole wheat roll; veggie
Snack 2: Carrots with hummus
Dinner: Lettuce wraps - lean ground beef, taco seasoning (homemade), tomatoes, onion, salsa with a side of spanish rice
Snack 3: Chocolate/Avocado pudding (new recipe) - trying for the first time tonight!
This weekend we are going to visit friends in Annapolis and I am super excited. They also eat clean and I am looking forward to learning some new recipes and have a great time laughing!
Until tomorrow Spark friends, until tomorrow!
