Eat Clean and Elf 4 Health

Feels like there’s a ton of stuff going on, I’m not even sure which eat clean day I’m at.  I must be at Day 6 and Day 7.  Today is Day 3 of the Elf 4 Health Challenge, and today’s challenge is trying a new workout.  I just need to make sure I make time for this workout after I get home from the board meeting at my son’s nursery school.

Eating clean the past couple days has been okay, not 100% but better.  After last week’s couple days of indulgences, my will power is stronger.  It’s that time of month for me and I am refusing to give in to the cravings.  I already feel bloated and gross, I don’t need the addition of bad food on top of that.


Wow.. so I started the post above first thing this morning, probably around 7am.

It’s now close to 4pm and time to go home.

I’ll continue this post once I get home.


It’s now 8:30pm and shortly after coming home I found myself eating a small bowl of grapes and then rushing out to make it to my son’s prenursery school board meeting.  I got home shortly after 7pm, loaded up the washing machine and did a quick shoulder workout.  Unfortunately it wasn’t a different or new workout, as per the elf 4 health challenge.  But I”m glad that I squeezed in a short workout.  I definitely had to, considering while at the board meeting, I ate 2 slices of pizza 😦

My own fault for not being more prepared and having a quick bite to eat before leaving the house (rather than having a grapes).  I came home from the board meeting feeling so gross!  I should’ve tried to stick to one slice of pizza, and to be honest I was already full after a slice of pizza, but the pizza was there…  not a wise decision on my part.

Tomorrow is another day and I’ve got tomorrow’s lunch in the oven.. roasted chicken with orange peppers and zucchini!

    You know, I think you need those off days to remind you why you’re doing it. I find how bad I feel when I “indulge” repulsive. After a while now I avoid them, but still, ever so often, I remind myself by having something aweful and pay for it dearly. Will we ever learn?! Accept your failures, acknowledge your success, and move on to the next day.

      The reminder definitely helps to re-focus. It’s hard to believe that at one point that feeling that is now repulsive was “normal”. Nothing to do but move on to the next day. Great advice!
