I’ve been home for 3 days now, and all I can say is I’m totally happy to be able to eat like me again! All weekend was raw, and I immediately felt better. Lots of smoothies, juices, salads, and snacking on tomatoes and celery.
My hotel in Vegas had really crappy in-room coffee. I think they do that so you’d order the $8 pot of coffee from room service. They tout that their coffee (room service coffee) is Starbucks – of which I’m not a fan (too bitter). So, it happens that I was slowly weaning myself off caffeine last week, so this week has been a breeze. I haven’t had any coffee (or caffeine) since Friday morning, and haven’t had any of those annoying side effects.
The no caffeine/no alcohol/no processed foods/mostly raw has been incredibly easy this past few days. I know I was craving it, but it’s just felt so good too.
Monday was a very hectic day, and found all I had time for was a cup of herbal tea and munching on dried fruit I had in my desk drawer at work (yes…the fruit was dried when I put it in there). As a result, I was quite hungry when I got home. On his way home, D stopped and got me some veggie sushi, which was sweet. I ate half of it – the other half I didn’t like (sorry honey), but that’s okay.
I also made my rice cooker favorite of brown rice, coconut milk, mixed veggies, and Red Thai Curry, just in case I ended up getting hungry again, and to have as leftovers this week.
Oh the joy of running outside! I should have biked or swam this weekend, but it was sunny and pretty out, and I had to take advantage of that.
This week the lifting gets back on course, so that should be fun (insert sarcasm here).
This weekend is a Treasure Hunt run at the state park, and I’m looking forward to that. Followed by a Tri club clinic to kick off the spring training season.
Just trying to get back into the groove of things has been a lot of work! I ended up missing the girls weekend in the Outer Banks for S’s bday celebration. I just couldn’t leave after seeing the kids, and thankfully, S was more than understanding. I’ll be making it up to her on Saturday with some Tacos!
I spent Saturday doing laundry (9 loads), cleaning the house, and grocery shopping. Sunday was much of the same – finishing up the wash, more cleaning and organizing, and trying to get my body back on East Coast time (funny how I want to stay up until 2 am and sleep until noon!).
Monday was back to work, and it was a busy day. Not a bad one, just busy, and the rest of the week looks to be much of the same.
And on that note….it’s time for me to head to the office. Have a great day!
