the conscious cleanse . day ten & eleven


aaalright, confession time. i've had a rough couple days trying to get back on track here, but then it occured to me last night: hey, i'm seeing result, why give up now? so i've determined to get back on track, starting of course with a slightly over almond milked green smoothie.

i won't go into the gory details of the my failings, but i will tell you there might have been a hot dog involved at my mother in laws... i just kinda forgot i was on a cleanse. and it wasn't all bad, we did have a healthy green salad with tomatoes, cucumber, avocado and a home made dressing, so that's gotta count for something. but i really don't have any excuse for gorging myself on cupcakes last night. ahhhh i confess... 

last night my amazing friend miranda, her sister, her mother and i all got together at the lone wolf golf course for a mother/daughter tea party session!  we borrowed a cart and drove down to this little coolie off the 9th hole, where there's this great old wooden staircase and an old aged wooden bridge crossing a little stream. well anyways, we had a 2 tier cupcake stand set up on the table, littered with these adorable little red velvet and s'more mini cupcakes... how could i resist?? i bought them myself i might as well get the pleasure of eating a few right!

but no sense in crying over spilt milk, what's done is done and today is a new day. i've actually been keeping it together when it comes to dinner. on day ten i made vegetable and chickpea stirfry with a stuffed yellow pepper (dan had perogies, what a guy.) the pepper was stuffed with a mixture of sockeye salmon, kale, avocado, quinoa and rice, with a balsamic sauce. and then dinner last night was amazingly healthy and tasty as well.

we made a chicken and vegetable stir fry with black beans and basil pesto, paired with a lovely jar of lemon water of course. so you see, things aren't all bad. and i've even been avoiding coffee fairly well. dan keeps giving me shit for not drinking coffee with him because we end up wasting half a pot of perculated coffee, which really is a shame, but i just keep telling him to make less: problem solved. hah
