Day 11 ~ 30 Day Vegan Cleanse

~ Day 11 ~

Today was a strange day.  I can't put my finger on why I felt it was strange.  Nothing out of the ordinary happened.  Everyone is fine.  I just feel a little off, emotionally.  I don't think it has anything to do with the cleanse.  I am feeling a little overwhelmed with things piling up.  And although I am working on practicing some of the helpful tips I have been reading about in my personal development books, I didn't really accomplish as much as I should have today.  I need to get back to my A-list (those of you who have read Eat The Frog will know what I'm talking about).  Basically it means I need to focus on the super important things first, then the somewhat important things, and let the little things go because I will never get caught up no matter how good my intentions are.  Bottom line, I just waste too much time.

Day 8 and I am still trying to wrap my brain around Insanity.  I think I thought of every excuse in the book as to why I did not want to work out.  I blew it off during the girls' nap time today.  But, when Josh got home, I sucked it up and went downstairs to workout.  Yes it was hard...really hard...but I did it.  And I always feel so proud of myself for pushing through when I'm done.  You'd think I might remember that feeling beforehand and be more excited to jump right in instead of procrastinating half the day.
Ah well...it's done, I feel good, away I go...

Here's the food!
Breakfast ~ Lentils with acorn squash
Snack ~ Protein shake: 2T vanilla hemp protein powder, 1/2 cup frozen cherries, 8 oz unsweetened vanilla almond breeze, 2 handfuls raw baby spinach

  1. debi, how do you plan your menu? That is my biggest problem.. i am not very good in the kitchen as it is.. so coming up with a good menu is really difficult for me..

  2. Hi Amy! I have gotten a lot of really great ideas through this cleanse - both via the materials provided to us by Missy, and then via sharing through the group. I do wing it a LOT and just kind of throw things together - like with breakfast and lunch yesterday. One of my resolution is to be less wasteful, so I just use whatever's leftover in my fridge and it usually works out okay! :o)
