so i managed to keep the healthiness rollin after my friday blog, until...saturday night. we had a housewarming party, and although i was completely fine eating-wise, i drank SO MUCH. i had a super fun night, which then ended in me being crying-drunk for the first time (my poor boyfriend!) and then SO SICK the next day. i spent pretty much all of sunday in bed, until sunday evening when i was ravenous...i kept it (surprisingly) super-healthy, but was still in the "i just threw up everything in the world so i can eat whatever i want" mindset.
unfortunately, while this mindset did not affect me too much on sunday, it definitely did yesterday. i started yesterday with a smoothie, and then allowed all hell to break loose haha. i had a huge/healthy lunch (veggie + turkey pita w/ a cup of vegan corn chowder) which for some reason triggered something in my brain that said "eat whatever you want"! (apparently massive quantities of food lead to loss of self-control)...so i then had a tall soy salted caramel mocha...and a container of starbucks caramel brule bites...followed up by pasta and garlic knots at dinner....FOLLOWED BY MCDONALDS! wtf. i have not had mcdonalds in YEARS. i was completely completely in binge mode. i found the mcdonalds to be extremely digusting, yet i still forced myself to eat most of it (in the car, on my way home from dinner) and hide the wrappers at a gas station so my boyfriend wouldnt know that i ate it. the worst part, is that despite me a) obviously not being hungry and b) not enjoying the food at all, i actually felt REMORSE when i threw away a mostly-full container of fries. what is wrong with me?!
anyway. back to my green smoothie deliciousness this morning, and i am going to have either a salad with no dressing or some sort of veggie-based soup for lunch. the scale tells me that i gained 5 lbs in one day (yesterday) so i am ready to take off that salt-and-disgustingness-based water weight!!!!

so i am in my final day (kinda) of the cleanse, and i am feeling amazing. i have cracked and let myself have caffeine for the past two days, but that first day without coffee was uggglllyyy. it just feels amazing to be really taking care of myself again, though, and i REALLY want to keep that going. i was able to go for a run outside yesterday due to a freakishly warm day, and i felt like my organized summer self- on top of schoolwork, eating and exercise...and i forgot how content and at peace that makes me feel.
the reason that i say that this is kinda the last day of the cleanse is because i would really like to continue it through the end of the month. i am going to allow myself caffeine and alcohol, but i would like to stick with this same morning smoothie + only grains, protein and veggies the rest of the day (i may or may not continue with the supplements). although i do not like the gym anywhere near as much as i like being outside, i REALLY want to commit to getting back into a regular workout routine. my body and mind will thank me!
although i want to wait until saturday morning to do my official cleanse weigh-in, i will say that i have lost 2.6 lbs since wednesday morning! definitely extra motivation to stick with this...and i feel very...healthy :)

sooo remember that last blog, where i was all fresh start! new month! that didn't happen so much. i have kind of eaten everything in the world for the past three days. sooo today i am starting my very first cleanse!
it is not a full juice cleanse, as i have neither the will power nor the inclination haha... here is the plan:
breakfast smoothie - 10 ounces almond milk. banana, handful spinach, 1/2 c. blueberries, 1 scoop protein powder, 2 tbsp. apple cider vinegar + 2 supplements (probiotics and multi-enzyme)
lunch + dinner - either protein w/ veggies or grains with veggies...or a combination of the two (except for dinner on the last day...not allowed to mix protein + grains). there are also supplements w/ lunch and dinner - all digestive-focused.
firstly, i managed to convince my boyfriend to do it with me, which should make it easier to stick with it...
secondly, this is not that intense at all, and should help me get back on track! the only thing that makes me nervous is that i cannot have caffeine for the next three days, and i am smack-dab in the middle of finals...here's to herbal tea and natural energy!!!
stats starting the cleanse: 154.8 (dun, dun, dun...)

soooo i got in the holiday spirit haha. annddd kind of ate whatever all weekend. i wasn't awful, i didn't binge, but i definitely didn't try....and didn't really track (for the first time in months!)
but with a new month always comes the opportunity for a clean slate and new goals, so i am taking full advantage! i stocked up on new protein powder (spirulina-based!) and quest bars yesterday, i have lotsa eggs and yogurt...i should be ready to start a healthy week.
i went to brunch today and wasn't SUPER healthy, but also managed to keep it pretty high-protein, low-carb...i had an egg white omelette w/ sauteed veggies, a bit of cheese and sausage/bacon. i had a couple of tator tots, a bloody mary and an irish coffee, which were definitely the less healthy parts, but overall not awful (and i will be stuffed at least until dinner, so my numbers should end up really good for the day!!)
i have SO much schoolwork, but i am letting myself take a quick nap to a) completely sober up haha and b) get my head in the game to write a midterm tonight (ugh).
i gained a cpl of pounds back from my lack of focus this weekend, so i definitely will not be hitting my 145 by dec 7th goal...so here are my revised december goals!
back under 150 by december 7th
and...dun dun dun...under 140 by the new year!!!!
this week is definitely going to be an eating-focused week, as i have no time for the gym...but that will be a good kick-start, so that when i get back to the gym i will hopefully be back down to my lowest weight.
i am excited to get in the zone this week, and knock out school/work/eating healthy!!! i had a really nice and relaxing weekend, and i am ready to kick it into high gear until the end of the semester!
