Good morning folks! I hope your week is going just swimmingly. Today is a special day over here, as it’s my husband Dave’s birthday. Because of work and my classes, we won’t be doing much of anything tonight. We do, however, have some much-anticipated reservations for dinner tomorrow at a San Francisco classic restaurant, and I’ll share all about it once we go. We made the reservations nearly two months in advance, so our table better be ready for us.
Since it’s officially “What I Ate Wednesday,” let’s get to the pictures of food. This recap is from Monday, a day in which I worked from home and taught a BODYATTACK class in the evening.
The juice cleanse that wasn’t
You’ll see below that I had a lot of extra liquids in this day, and that’s because the very kind folks at San Francisco-based Project Juice, provided me with all the goods for a juice cleanse. While I was considering trying the one-day cleanse, as a first-timer looking at my teaching schedule, there just wasn’t a good day for me to do it and have time to relax pre- and post-cleanse. Thus, I decided to make the most of the juices and incorporated some of them into my daily meals, and it was a great way to get more fruits and veggies and a little extra energy throughout the day. Until my schedule allows for a little more down-time from intense workouts, I don’t think I’ll do a cleanse. And quite honestly, I think I like food way too much to give it up, even for a day. But if you’re interested in some high-quality organic, local, cold-pressed juices, you should definitely check out Project Juice. San Franciscans rave about this place, and I can see why. Now to the food …
Breakfast at 7 a.m.
Overnight oats, a cold-pressed green juice and some hot green tea.
Mid-morning snack at 10:30 a.m.
Lunch at 1 p.m.
Afternoon tea at 3 p.m.
Afternoon snack at 4:30 p.m.
Hydration during class at 5:30 p.m.
Post-class protein at 6:40 p.m.
Dinner at 8:30 p.m.
Dessert at 9 p.m.
That’s that! I’d say it was a pretty good day of eating, full of many of my usual healthy food staples. While my exact food choices vary, I definitely tend to stick to three square meals, two hearty snacks and a protein shake as a daily eating plan. And on this day, I really liked having the extra juices to complement my food, but of course, they are all gone now.
By the way, I randomly selected the winner of the Athleta gift card yesterday, and Sharon was notified by email. Thank you to everyone who entered. I hope to have another giveaway for you soon. Happy Wednesday!
