So if anyone reading this has been reading my blog posts over the years you know the things I blog about are generally the things I struggle with. Such as blending our families, LGBTQ issues, social justice issues, dark spots on my face, and FOOD!
I have a problem with food….well to be honest I have a problem with my love of food. I love it. Unfortunately I am NOT in love with vegetables and healthy fish I am in love with baking and luscious creamy things. I am in love with high calorie foods! Trust me I TOTALLY wished I loved kale as much as I love a great piece of cake. But I don’t. Sadly.
And this love of less healthy food has caused another problem- weight gain. Now when I was in my 20’s and even my 30’s all I had to do was work out extra hard and I cold balance the scales. As I entered my 40’s and DEFINITELY now that I am in my 50’s, that doesn’t work anymore.
So I have decided to try the 30 Days to Healthy Living Program using Arbonne products. Now just to be totally transparent I am an Arbonne Consultant and have done the program before, but have ALWAYS cheated. I have NEVER done it for a full 0 days correctly. So I have decided that this time I am DOING IT!!!! Completely!
So Day 1 was good. I did have a low key headache from coming off of the sugar, but nothing I couldn’t manage.
For Breakfast I had a vanilla protein shake with spinach and strawberries and almond milk. YUM.
For lunch I had a chocolate protein shake with cherries. Also Yum!
And for dinner I made Turkey Picadillo
So Day One is done!!
