Today marked the official start of my health quest and so far, so good…but don’t they always start off great? Anyway…I began the week with a cleanse that I found on Small Kitchen College just as a way to give my body a “restart”. It was much easier than any of the other cleanses I have attempted in the past, I was a little hungry by late afternoon, but dinner was very filling.

I spent the day shopping with my mom & cousin and I was worried that I would have problems “sticking to the plan”, but I’m pretty proud of myself…I only went over 83 calories and while I would prefer not to go over at all…it’s much better than normal. For breakfast, I made a quinoa breakfast bowl from Two Raspberries. I substituted the almond milk for a tablespoon of Organic Greek vanilla yogurt and added Organic unsweetened shredded coconut and a touch of cinnamon…it was de-licious! We had Cracker Barrel for lunch and while I really wanted Chicken ‘n dumplings and fried okra, I opted instead for a grilled chicken Caesar salad and I’m glad I did, it was so good…and filling. I did break down and have a Starbucks green tea frappucino (my weakness), but baby steps, people!! We had Chick-fil-A for dinner and I got a Cobb salad with fat free honey mustard dressing…it was good, but I should have substituted with grilled nuggets which would have cut down my calories by about 200, I’ll know next time. We ended the night with a stop at Jolly Pirate’s Donuts, a childhood staple, but I was strong and got only a small black coffee.
All in all, I like the direction this is going, now I’ve just got to incorporate some exercise.
