Clean Eating


My quest for a healthy life continues to go well.  We traveled to the Dominican for the March Break and for the first time, ever, I lost weight while on vacation.  I worked out, I meditated and I ate mindfully.  Who'd a thunk it....it actually worked!  I've been trying to incorporate more vegetarian meals.  Truth be told I probably have at least 5 vegetarian dinners per week.  Tonight, while my family had turkey tacos, I chose to have this killer salad. 


Mixed salad greens with roasted sweet potato, avocado, shallots, pumpkin seeds, hemp seeds with a homemade apple balsamic vinaigrette.  YUMM-O!

28 Days

So I finished my yoga today crying. Not because I was sad, but because I was proud. 28 days in a row. I've never exercised this many consecutive days. Also, I was able to achieve poses that knocked me on my ass all month! Today I finally achieved it. What a strong feeling! I am determined to change my health from the inside. We are leaving today for our vacation. I packed sneakers and exercise clothes. Another first! Wish me luck :)
