Healthy Eating

Hello lovelies!  I am so loving that this Wednesday feels like a Tuesday.  All weekends should be three dayers.  However (yes, there is a however) I may have gone a tad overboard the last week or so with my food and workouts.  By overboard, I mean stuffed my face with anything and everything and not worked out at all.  Oops.  I guess sometimes you just need to fall off of the wagon to get yourself back into it even more than you were.  Or at least that is what it means for me.  I have been seriously slacking for a few weeks now in the workout and healthy eating department.  My portions have been way OOC and my workouts have been getting shorter and less frequent.  It is due to a mix of schedule changes and travel... both of which I know aren't an excuse.  I have been back to healthy eating - clean and mostly gluten-free for the past couple of days and really stepped up my workouts and I feel great!  It is crunch time since I really wanted to get rid of 20 pounds and actually feel okay in a bathing suit this summer.  Can you all just hold me accountable here ;)

From L to R, top to bottom
1. Tuna with chopped cucumber and balsamic reduction
2. Gluten free pasta with butternut squash sauce (dairy free!) and a kale caesar salad
3. Salmon with a vegenaise sauce, tomatoes and steamed broccoli
4.  Smoothie with ice, unsweetened vanilla almond milk and vanilla protein powder
5. Cucumbers, carrots, hardboiled eggs and greek yogurt dip
6. Eggs over easy and sliced tomato
7. Vanilla fat free greek yogurt with a handful of gluten free granola
8. Everything multigrain bagel thin with tomato, cucumber, pea shoots and vegenaise
9. Kale caeasar with onions and mushrooms

I have also been guzzling these.  I'm trying to get in at least a gallon a day.  It helps me stay full and in the bathroom. (tmi)

But, a girl has to enjoy herself sometime.  I had a bowl of amazingly delicious clam chowder at the shore, doused in Old Bay.  Worth every bite.  I also made the funfetti dip that has been floating around Pinterest.  It was ok... definitely not my favorite.

So that is that!  You should check out Hey Lauren Rene for some healthy, clean recipes and awesome fitness inspiration!

  3. Howdy this is somewhat of off topic but I was wanting to
    know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually
    code with HTML. I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding know-how so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!
