I won't say that this week was a total loss... but I will say that my husband is a bad influence on me :)
This was his week off. I still juiced my breakfast, and for all those that have shown interest in it... it is totally worth it! But having a man in the house for lunch and dinner... well, I can't make a salad or grill up some veggies. Oh no, there has to be MEAT... and where there is meat, there are carbs. *sigh* So this week I stayed on track 1/3 of the time. Lunch and dinner was way more then it should have been.
Today, Hubby has headed back to work and I am detoxing once again. My cravings for bread and sugar are unbearable.. and yes, I have given in to them. Half a banana nut muffin and some small chocolate mints.
I am going back and forth in my head... "I'll start fresh tomorrow.... no, I should start NOW... but I've already ruined today, tomorrow I will be stronger.... I shouldn't wait or tomorrow will be harder" Yes, the battle in my head has gone on for hours now. When the weaker side was winning was when I ate the muffin and chocolates. When the stronger side was winning I managed to juice some delicious breakfast and a strawberry banana smoothie. Water has managed to completely disappear from my routine altogether.
I havent stepped on the scale, and I doubt I will, for fear of seeing a gain. Tomorrow I am planning on taking a spin class in the morning to help burn the calories I've eaten today. :)
As for those that have asked what I am juicing:
1 handful of parsley
1 handful of cilantro
3 stalks of celery
Afternoon snack (great for when your craving something sweet)
1 frozen banana
1 juiced apple
1 tbsp chia seeds
(soak chia seeds in apple juice for 10 min. Then put everything into a blender and blend!)
