We had a great time camping this past weekend. It was Jimi, my little sister, her bf and me. It was nice to actually talk to my sister's bf, since we are a loud family and he is so quiet. He is very outdoorsy (hiking, camping, backpacking, mountain biking etc), so we got along great. J love anyone who can use a chainsaw and can split wood :)
I think the food highlight was a chicken and bean enchilada casserole we made in the dutch oven. Of course, we were so excited that we didn't get a picture
I also drank considerably less that I have at previous camping trips, so I'm super proud of that. We did a 4 mile hike, explored around the river and hung out around the fire. Oh, and Jimi was about to buy himself a french press to take camping, soI had to unhide the one I'd bought him for his birthday...
I decided to stick it out and finish the month of detox days each week, even with the issues I brought up in my last blog. With extra planning, I could easily get my protein up for the day. Monday was a dud. There was a spur of the moment invite for dinner because a friend was in town, followed by (extremely delicious, large portions of) ice cream in the historic part of Yorktown. It was fun. Obviously, I didn't follow the detox plan, but followed it yesterday and today.
New Food Plan
Instead of doing 'detox' days, I think I'm going to try for 4ish days of unprocessed, no sugar etc per week. I love cheese and yogurt and kicking them out of my life on the detox days isn't working. I really rely on them for protein, especially on days where I don't eat meat (which is 4-5 days per week).
I'm still way under the level I was at 4-5 months ago. I've been doing videos at home, or making up workouts. I got a Groupon for 1 month at a gym near my office, so I'm going to try that out. After that's over, I'm planning to do a 1 month trial membership at a yoga studio near my office and a 1 week trial at a yoga studio near my house. I think I really miss the classes, which were not offered at my old gym. I've also been getting in 10-20 minutes of exercise 4ish days a week before work (um, minus this week
Well, it got kind of long, but that's what I'm doing. I need to start having more witty, fun blogs!
