About a week ago my 3-day cleanse from Kaeng Raeng arrived. Since I knew I would be going to vacation I decided to hold off on using it-I mean, I wanted to be able to enjoy my vacation, right? And enjoy I did, frequently eating and drinking items I save for cheat days. Faithful readers will know that I try to avoid animal-based products, baked goods, and generally try to maintain a vegan diet. I rarely drink. Of course, these little “guidelines” were largely ignored in preparation for the upcoming event. I present the evidence below.
My boyfriend and I shared a dessert called Oreo Madness at Friday’s. I don’t even want to know the calories.
I’ve yet to see a veggie burger on the “fit and trim” menu at a restaurant. Sort of telling. And who eats any kind of burger without fries?
Gift to whomever can guess what is in this glass. Hint? Not just pineapple juice.
This black bean veggie burger was so good that I almost keeled over and died. I forgot to ask for no cheese.[/caption] Yeah, self restraint wasn’t a big part of my vernacular this week. But I still ate some healthy things too.
A Peanut Butter Protein Shake-the healthy alternative to vanilla and peanut butter ice cream.[/caption] I also continued my usual routine at the gym, as well as doing some physical recreation.
And then it became clear we were straight up rock climbing. I was terrified!
When I look back on the week I feel as if I actually maintained some sort of balance-for someone who was letting herself off the hook, as they say. But I’m still more than happy to be cleansing now and getting back to my routine. I couldn’t eat another veggie burger if you paid me.
Let me know how you get ready for a cleanse. Do you take that opportunity to eat whatever you want or do you still stick to your routine? How about when on vacation?
In case you missed it, here were some of my post from from this week.
I detailed some of the repercussions I faced from yo-yo dieting in, The Thing About Boobs.
I taught coffee lovers how to incorporate their favorite beverage into a healthy breakfast, with my easy Breakfast Protein Coffee Shake.
Trainer Taylor Ryan paid my site a visit and gave a strength training workout video for easy gainers.
In other news, it is currently snowing in New York. I really hate the snow when I have things I want to do, like go to the gym. I went out for dinner and drinks last night with my boyfriend, so I really need to burn some calories. I will be hitting up my home gym pretty soon. No excuses!
