I just finished off a crazy, fun weekend spent with my lovely friend Devon . She took a mini-vacation to spend some time in Philadelphia. We ate, we drank, we were merry, and even got in an easy 2.6ish mile run. But, all that fun-having means now I’m feeling a little bit sluggish and am ready to dive back into a more solid routine. It was pretty good timing that before the weekend arrived, two of my friends on vacation let me have their local CSA share for the week.
Yay fresh food! I was planning at some point to give the Drop10 Detox from Self a whirl, especially since it isn’t low-calorie or strictly liquid. I have another packed weekend coming up for Labor Day and this week seems to be perfect to try it out. I printed out the shopping list, checked off what I already had in stock, and made my way to the grocery store. I slept in late (Devon had a way early flight, thanks Delta) so I decided to just have the smoothie for lunch and pick one of the dinners (in typical KJ fashion I’m already tweaking/modifying things…). So, here is what Day 1 looked like:
My red swiss chard from the food share wasn’t going to make it to Wednesday, so I prepped Day 4’s dinner today. I know it doesn’t look pretty at ALL, but it was really tasty and filling! Booster: I had one shot of this booster recipe they have. I was expecting it to be gross but it surprisingly wasn’t. Workout 2: Pick-up soccer for 60min (3x20min games with a 5-8min break in between).
This was the final Sunday of our over-30 pickup soccer league. It was such a fun experience and I’m a little sad it’s over, especially because it means summer is coming to a close. However, fall looks like it holds some pretty exciting stuff (concerts, more soccer, two half marathons, two 10Ks). I’m going to prep a small snack plate to finish out my day consisting of a cup of cherries, a few wheat thins, and a Laughing Cow wedge. Oh yeah and TONS of water. I ran my ass of tonight!
I’m eager to see how things look by the end of this week with the diet. As far as the workout plan, I will likely stick more to my half training plan for the cardio and throw in a couple more days of the toning moves. I need to make sure the last three weeks of my half training go according to plan. My main goal for doing this was to get me off the habit of buying breakfast and lunch all the time, and also to actually prep REAL dinners. We’ll see what happens!
PS – I didn’t really take any pics while Dev and I had our weekend of ridiculousness, so I’ll just wait for her recap to share how our shenanigans went.
