Clean eating + the weekend.

The weekend was full of a lot of joy.

And a lot of food that was just horrible for me.

Saturday afternoon, after I taught a killer Zumba class, I attended the graduation party of a friend, where there were some amazing sides (life of a vegetarian), and what I ate was not limited to:

  • Two types of macaroni and cheese.
  • Potato salad
  • Guacamole + Chips
  • Pasta salad
  • Deviled eggs
  • Baked beans
  • Diet Sierra Mist

Followed by…

  • A lovely thick slice of cheesecake made by my boss’s boss.

I ate disgustingly – and I kind of want to try something to kind of get rid of the nasty I ingested this weekend.

Before that!

Let’s review my weekend!

Because I am so beautiful and gorgeous, I did another photoshoot for Headbands of Hope.  Okay, I kid, I kid, but I did another, and don’t worry, I will share those photos with you as soon as they are edited and ready to go!  But I did get this sweet buff that made me feel like a fun hippie all weekend.  I think I’m gonna buy a ton of these, because these are randomly really absorbent too!

I ran home to my parents’ in Charlotte, and got to see my newly-engaged younger sister.  Everyone thinks that I’m younger because I’m only 5’8″ and she’s like 5’10-5′-11″.  I look SO short compared to her!

My brother kind of impressed me with his burrito making/folding skills and he made one for a ton of folks.  I told him he needs to open something up and that he could give Moe’s a run for their money.  He’s showing promise in the cooking arena.  Between him, my dad, me, and my sister Kimmy (who cooks like a pro), we could have an excellent little family restaurant situation.

Onto the gross stuff that I ate this weekend and what I’m going to do about it.  

I’ve been reading this week about clean eating, and to be 100%, I feel like I’m kind of fumbling around blindly with the idea.

I don’t believe in fads, and I don’t believe in cleanses, but I totally believe it eating good stuff, and prepackaged foods like my yogurt and my Fiber 1 bars are making me feel like crap.  For a week, I’m prepping my foods, avoiding alcohol and coffee, and staying away from anything that comes in a wrapper.

My only hope is to alleviate some tummy troubles, and to get rid of this gross stuff that I spent this weekend eating and drinking.

Now….with all of that….what did you do this weekend?

  1. Only 5’8?! I think that’s super tall! I had a work filled weekend but I did get to hang out and do some of it at a cute little restaurant with big comfy couches and awesome french fries 😉

  2. Clean eating always makes me feel a million times better (even when I didn’t know I was feeling bad).

    And can we talk about how beautiful you and your family are?!?! #goodgenes

    1. I am totally feeling like crap after all the terrible food I ate this weekend, so I just need to eat well and let my body work it out!

      And thank you! I guess we’re all right 🙂

  3. I love this post!!! Looking great lady!

    After a weekend filled with gross foods-that’s usually how I feel too-ready to tackle the healthiest foods under the sun!!! Good luck.. I’m sure you’ll do great though!

    1. I have been doing great today! Honestly when you have a weekend when you eat all of that crap, honestly, the thought of eating nasty stuff just churns your stomach to pieces! The hard part is not reaching for a beer at night while I blog for the week, but I know it’s for the best 🙂

  4. Aw I had no idea your mom suffered a stroke. I love that she is able to smile again! :0)

    All that food just sounds so delicious. I try to eat clean, and most days I am pretty good about it, but sometimes there are cheat days!

    1. I had a GIANT GIANT cheat day on Saturday, and then I cheated a little bit with my mom when we went to to TCBY for some fro yo 🙂 best cheat day ever!
