Hi all and Happy Friday!! The sun is FINALLY shining here after an entire week of clouds and rain. At least it hasn’t been too cold. It’s finally nice today and I plan to spend the afternoon/evening outside! I just wanted to send a quick update on how my week off from working out has been going. I kept really busy all week outside of work so I really didn’t miss working out. But today when I was preparing for my cycling class tomorrow morning, I really wanted to work out. I think it’s because I know I will work out again tomorrow, but I really miss it! I needed this week off and (shocker!!) I didn’t gain 10 pounds! I learned to listen to my hunger cues more and not worry about whether or not I needed to eat before and after my workout (I probably don’t need to most days). Hopefully I can remind myself to think back to this week off when I am struggling with eating/working out. I also really enjoyed spending the extra time with Nate. I feel like we don’t spend enough time together and it was so nice to be with him all night during the week!
Anyway, today, I went to lunch with my old gf Christine and her baby Zoey! Isn’t she a doll?!
We went to Hunan’s which is where Christine worked in high school! She wouldn’t let me take a picture of her. She is getting married in July in Florida and since it’s the same day as Tana’s and I’m in Tana’s, I won’t be able to make it. 😦 Bummer, but she is having a reception in August back here! This summer is going to be crazy with weddings!
So, I do have a super easy recipe for a nice detox drink that I have every morning. I stole this recipe from Kasey at Powercakes and it’s now a staple in my diet! I’ve got my roomie Amber and my friend Susan hooked on it too!
ACV Morning Mixer
- 8-16oz water
- 1 TBSP Apple Cider Vinegar (I use Bragg’s)
- 1 lemon wedge
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 10-14 drops vanilla liquid stevia (I use NuNaturals)
Mix in a container, add ice and drink 30 minutes before breakfast!
Enjoy! I hope you all have a great weekend! I’m out!
