When I was in town I went to the store and cooked all my food for the weekend. Trader Joes at Patriot Place saved me! I also made a stop at Whole Foods and Lululemon because i couldnt help myself. I went to dinner once and ordered plain salmon, squash and a spinach salad on the side with walnuts.
I was feeling very fall and wanted something to warm up with while I watched 12 episodes of Vampire Diaries! Ahhhh I know... I have been so busy with school and work that I needed to catch up. Plus I was waiting to watch it with someone special :)
Clean Hot Cocoa Recipe
1 cup of unsweetened almond milk- microwave or heat over stove
1 Tbsp of unsweetened cocoa powder (not coco*)
Stevia or Splenda added for a little sweetness
I used a handheld electric blender, but you could also whisk it to blend. It was amazing and only 50 calories. Also I have read that coco powder acts as a diuretic so it's an added bonus!
I had the pleasure of attending the game with Paige my new BFF. Finally a tall friend. Instead of drinking and eating burgers before the game, we shopped and picked out my competition jewelry and Paige got some Patriots gear!
We pretty much froze our buns off at the game but we had a good time doing it. Of course I also packed my food for the game. A turkey burger and veggies and raw almonds to snack on during the game. Once your get into the habit of packing your food and preparing it early, it is very easy to do. No excuses.
It was a great weekend and I am happy to say that I was successful at eating clean. This weekend is homecoming weekend and all my roomies with be on there way to Athens tomorrow to tear up the town. Very excited to see everyone and I am fully ready to face all of the challenges of the weekend. Even though most people my age do not approve of my heathy life style, I am going to stay strong and hold my ground. Find your strong! Don't let others influence you negatively. People will take every chance they get to tear you down but it's up to you how you let it affect you.
