I hope everyone had a great Fourth of July Weekend. I did, it was so fun. I wasn't very healthy though.
I decided today I would really buckle it down and get back on track.
Mondays have been prep days for me lately. Today I did devotionals, cleaned my house, went grocery shopping, and am in the process of food prepping for the week right now. It's nice to get everything organized. I chopped and sliced celery, cucumbers, and carrots. I'm making quinoa as I type, and, I chopped and spun romaine lettuce for salads. ( I will try to upload some photos.) I love having cucumbers, carrots, and celery ready and on hand now. I either eat them with a little hummus or salsa. Or I make a healthy dip with greek yogurt and salsa mixed. Salsa is my must have ingredient lately. I even use it in my tuna with a tbsp. of sour cream. It may sound strange, but, it is AH-mazing. I found this little trick when I ran out of mayo and searched my fridge for a substitute. I figured I love ceviche so I would give it a try. I actually like it better than mayo now and its like half the calories! Win! I have 2 different types of hummus in my fridge right now too. I've made a deal with myself and have decided not to buy any chips for awhile. Sorry husband! Even if they are organic yellow corn chips I cannot be trusted with them. I have started using the cucumbers, celery, carrots as a healthy alternative. This will end up saving me hundreds of calories. Plus its really good.
Just adding this pic of the finished product of my Food Prep day... Here's what my fridge looks like right now....
I'm doing a mini cleanse of sugar and alcohol. I've over indulged in them for too long now. I know I will feel so much better giving them up for a few weeks. I will probably be blogging about sugar cravings soon so sorry in advance if I sound whiny and cranky LOL...
Have a great week everyone! We can do it!!!
