I spent the morning moping around and grumpy from feeling lethargic from last night’s alcohol. ‘Round 11 I decided nothing would make me feel better more than a workout, so we rounded up the bikes and set out. That was exactly what the doctor ordered. Not 10 minutes from leaving I felt my first energy of the day. It’s a gorgeous day today too – much less humid than usual and it actually feels like fall!!! At the gym I did an easy 30 minutes of Squirrellipticalling, 10 minutes of weights and headed home.
I was ready for lunch, but we got tied up in a garage cleaning project following by a make-up area organizing project and before I knew it it was 2:00! I quickly showered and set out to put this organized lunch together:
I made a wrap with a slice of Applegate ham, a slice of jalapeno cheese, 3 slices leftover grilled squash, avocado and mustard, all grilled in a pan. It was awesome!!!!!!!!!
I added a straight laced carrot + pickle –
And ate up the last of the gazpacho with some goat cheese on top (which curdled 🙁 )
It was such a happy lunch.
While I was at the gym I read this new SELF article on the Dangers Of Detox Diets. The article says people are now using the word “cleanse” and “detox” in place of food restricting “diets” since diet has such a negative and old fashioned connotation these days. Women in the article say they are criticized for going on a diet but applauded for “getting healthier” by restricting their eating to just raw foods, juices, or supplements. Some of these supposedly healthy practices landed the women in the hospital for nutrient deficiencies and malnutrition over time. It’s very interesting to read that the same old food restriction of the 80s and 90s is masked in jargon of health vocabulary.
Tonight we’re going to a friend’s house for Indian food. Can’t wait to see what she’ll have!
