It is such a great feeling!
This weekend off has been very successful so far - successful in crossing "to-dos" off my list.
The day started off with a thunderstorm. And the need for me to put my boots on to run out to the postal carrier to retrieve a package....
PJ bottoms, cowboy boots, a giant sweatshirt, ball cap, and smudged mascara.
It's called "working from home" fashion and I'm not ashamed of it.
In fact, I stayed in the outfit - including boots!- until 8PM this evening.
My boots help me to focus.
I begin my chores in the kitchen. It was so nice to have time to focus on preparing meals for the week.
I got an easy and awesome ( according to Kev) recipe out of the latest Real Simple magazine. I tried to find a link to it - but couldn't. You will just have to go out and buy it. I broke down and got a subscription because I love the magazine so much. Organizing, Decorating, Fashion, and most of all... the recipes. They are usually pretty simple and healthy - or can be made healthy.
And so far they have all been winners.
Crock Pot Pork BBQ was on the agenda today.
Crock pots are pretty awesome!
Then I made some broccoli slaw to go with it. I used Greek yogurt instead of sour cream to make it acceptable for my cleanse.
BEST black bean burgers EVER... By Emily at The Daily Garnish.
Thank goodness I don't get sick of eating the same thing over and over and over!
I also made a Detox Salad from Oh She Glows. But haven't taken a picture of it yet. It will also be eaten for multiple meals.
After cleaning the kitchen, I did three loads of laundry, cleaned my closet, and FINALLY finished unpacking every last box in the attic!!
The attic is still not complete - but it is SO much better. At least we know what all we have and where it is.
Our upstairs inventory is pretty interesting, random, crazy, and weird. Which I guess pretty much describes the two of us. :)
Then it was finally time to eat! The house smelled so good all day.
Speaking of my meals... I realized that some of you might not know about or remember my cleanse last year. So, I feel it necessary to tell you what I am not eating in addition to taking the supplements.
Which will explain why I am not eating the same meals as Kev.
I have cut out:
-dairy ( with the exception of one cup of plain Green yogurt a day)
I have also decided to cut out meat this time around. The cleanse definitely suggests cutting out red meat and eating organic chicken - but I'm attempting to go meat free this month.
I've just completed one week and so far so good.... even though I have had some major cravings ( pizza!!) . It usually takes my body a week to adjust and then it becomes a routine.
And now it is time to check some shows off of my DVR list. I feel like it is never ending.
