Sunday: Up with kids, spent day with my sisters family at their house, went to the mall, went out to dinner at Bucks of all places! Haven’t had a chance to go shopping, running low on fruit.
couple of blueberries
couple of grapes
1 bite of cheese off pizza delivered for everyone else:)
Chicken picatta, broccoli, carrots and green beans
All in all, I don’t think it has been as difficult as I thought it would be. I flared up an old injury on Monday so haven’t trained but am a bit glad because I feel like if there has been an improvement in performance, it will be more notable having had a few more days under my belt. At this point I would say improvements are more attributable to behavior modification than to the effects of eating clean. Having said that, either way, I’m happy I’ve undertaken this challenge as I do feel I needed to bring consciousness back to my consumption.
