Just Push Play

Hi everyone!  How were your weekends?!  I absolutely loved the gorgeous weather that we had here this weekend, and enjoyed it even moreso knowing that it’s going to be gray and cloudy here all week!  I met up with some friends, got caught up with studying my Integrative Nutrition content, and enjoyed the sunshine.

I was also super excited because today I managed to fit into a pair of jeans that I have not been able to fit into for over a year!!!  It’s all thanks to Beachbody!  First I lost 10 pounds with the Beachbody Ultimate Reset.  I did try on the jeans after the Reset, but they didn’t quite fit just yet.  This past week I’ve been doing the TurboFire/ChaLEAN Extreme hybrid and I’m so excited because it’s working!!!  Thanks to that, today I was able to zip those jeans up, yay!!!!

I’ve also decided that I need to start eating more like I was when I was eating the Reset meals.  This weekend I didn’t eat quite as close to the Reset, but now that I know how my body responds when I eat meals that aren’t as clean (even if they’re gluten-free and vegan), I’m better able to make wiser choices that help me on my path to wellness.

A little tempeh salad for lunch yesterday

With a side of Tropical Shakeology, since I still felt hungry.  I couldn’t finish it all though, so I saved some for snack later on.

I made some time to finally start writing in my IIN journal.  I can tell that this is definitely going to help me on my journey!

Pancakes for dinner.  I didn’t feel like cooking anything last night, so when I opened up to Chloe Coscarelli’s book and this was the first thing I saw, I knew that’s what I was making, haha!

Today I met up with my good friend Diana in Leesburg, which is not too far from here, but I felt like I was in a whole other world.  I had a great lunch of vegan pad thai (and I loved that on the menu itself it stated that the noodles were gluten-free!), but thanks to the Reset, I feel like my appetite has shrunk, so I only ate a little bit and saved the rest for dinner.

After lunch, we walked around and checked out some of the shops.  Since Leesburg is historic, sometimes you’ll see signs outside of places that show where something historic happened.  We couldn’t help noticing this one though!

We also got some yummy chai at this cute little coffee shop called Shoes, that actually has shoes hanging from the ceiling!

And they even had the most beautiful little secret garden, that reminded me of places that I used to go to in London when I lived there.

For some reason, I failed to take a picture of the garden, but trust me, it was beautiful!

So how were your weekends?  What did you do to take care of yourselves?
