I definitely am starting to feel normal again. I have not had any coffee since last Sunday, and I did not have any green tea today, so I think I'm finally caffeine free :) This is probably the biggest accomplishment I've had in a really long time because I've tried to kick the caffeine habit many times unsuccessfully. I'm really proud of this.
So lets check out the meals...
Green smoothie. No major changes yet. Going to make a few next week. I'll talk about this on Sunday.
Around 11:30 I ate this refreshing, crispy apple.
For lunch I had the rest of my brown rice, cucumber and avocado rolls with a big ol' chopped salad made with greens, sun dried tomato, cucumber and carrot. I dressed it later with CSD Carrot Miso dressing.
Before I went to the gym to do some cardio I had a snack of gluten free flax crackers with hummus and more sun-dried tomatoes.
When I got home from the gym I made an unpictured protein shake and then did about 15 minutes of yoga, mainly sun salutations and downward dog. Carr suggests you meditate every day and this is my form of meditation. I'm not really a sit at an altar and meditate kind of gal, my mind starts racing instead of clearing. Yoga has always been my kind of meditation, I focus on breath and that allows me to clear my mind the way meditation would. I also just needed to stretch out these legs if I want to survive this training session tomorrow! ;)
My intention for dinner was a baked sweet potato with some raw veggies. Then I realized I didn't have any sweet potatoes. Oops! I was still kind of full from that protein shake so I made a piece of millet toast and added some raw almond butter and a sprinkling of cinnamon to it. The raw veggies still made an appearance.
I'm craving something sweet (hence the intended sweet potato) so I'll probably have a few blackberries for dessert in a little bit.
Hope you all have a great Friday night!
