Eating and Working Out....Shocker

Day 1 of my cleanse went well thanks to proper planning.

I took a variety of food to work including my big ass salad.
{Lettuce, Rotisserie Chicken, corn, black beans, grape tomatos, onions, red bell peppers}
I used Walden Farms Chipotle Ranch Dressing, I really liked it and it contains no calories, sugar, or carbs. I've tried the regular ranch by them and didn't like it, but this one was not bad!

I also took raw, salt free nuts.
Grapes and strawberries, a banana, and 2 cuties.
All Natural Sweet Potato Chips {Sprouts}

I will say I kinda felt like throwing up after snacking on fruit all day. Tomorrow I need to get some hummus because I'm pretty sure I can't do fruit all day again.

Dinner was something new, Clean Eating Chili Mac.

I used Brown Rice Pasta and it was pretty tasty, probably more so if I had added the cheese.
Super EASY which means I'll be making it a LOT.

I didn't hit the gym yesterday, Monday's are my rest days, but I'm not planning on skipping or cutting back during the cleanse. I've been asked that a few times and I'm not sure WHY you would cut back??
I'm still eating enough and have plenty of energy. 
Yes I am still drinking coffee, I have no intention of ever giving it up, I love my  caffeine :)

My awesome Advocare girl Kristen started a Facebook page for us cleansers, if you want an invite leave your email and I'll get it to her. It's great for connecting and sharing ideas and recipes!

I made an arm and leg video for y'all.
I suggest 15 minutes of cardio followed by the leg workout, then 15 minutes cardio followed by the arms.
That will give you a nice hour workout!

Each move should be done for 40 seconds then rest for 20 repeated for 4 minutes.

Sorry it's a little out of focus, that's what happens when I'm all by my lonesome at the gym.
Which is rare. I like company.

I've also put together a media kit for sponsors, I've had some emails asking if I was planning on taking sponsors, so I guess the answer is yes :)

If you'd like to sponsor this little ole blog then send me an email at skinnymeg@ymail.com

I've also got the headers working at the top, thanks to my awesome web guy, so if you're looking for answers you can probably find them there.

Happy Tuesday!

  19. Lunge, up, lift looks like a real cardio boost! I'll have to give that a try tomorrow morning. Thanks for sharing!

    I also did a post on the Advocare Fiber Drink from the cleanse..and why people should just suck it up and drink it! Check it out maybe? :) http://www.carpethesangria.com/2013/03/what-is-in-that-fiber-drink.html

  20. Hi there meg.. This is kind of off topic (I also asked mamalaughlin) but what are your thoughts on green smoothies? I'm new to this cleaner style of eating and I'm assuming these are a good place to start. Should they be used as a "meal replacement"? I've been doing the 30 day shred and using myfitnesspal but I haven't seen anything change. It's only been about a month but I had hoped to see something, read: anything!!. Any words or advice for a discouraged fatty? (hopefully soon to be former fatty). If you have a free moment (super mom/woman) please email me back at charitylhughes at gmail dot com.. Thanks for being you which also happens to be totally badass!

  21. You look SO strong and healthy! I LOVE IT! :)
    Keep up the great work! Love those BodyPump lunges too!

  22. During the cleanse, are you eating a snack before bed? What is it? I need to break up with peanut butter!

  23. yay!!!!!!!!!!! (a hundred million exclamation points) for a new video!!!! I love seeing what you do in the gym, it gives me new moves to try out and does a lot for my motivation! Thanks for being my fitness guru!!

  26. Ok maybe it works this time lol. Do you have your workout written down like how many reps and sets you do? I never know what to do at the gym and why I stick with body pump. Since Jeremy works out at work I always go alone, and pretty much have no clue what to do

  27. WOW you amaze me daily! Love the video! I'm on my journey...I've feel off the bandwagon before but I've hopped back on now!
    jyttrie@regellen.com (I'd like in on the facebook cleanse group)

  28. I can't hold my appetite. OMG!! Brown Rice Pasta .. I like that food very much.I would love an invitation.

  29. Love love your blog!
    I did those squats and leg kicks/the shoulder raises and tricep pushes at the gym and didn't even care I was around all those super buffed out men. I showed them what I had!

  30. This post was such a motivation to me! I have a super complicated work day, so this really helped me figure out the best way to plan my meals. I'm a hospital nurse who only works 3 days a week, but the catch is I am usually there about 13 hours a shift. Thanks again for the motivation! :)

  31. I know you've finished the cleanse but I think the group and the posts on there would help me as I plan to do it myself later this month... can you invite me? meagan2t@gmail.com

    Plus I have kinda noticed a lightening up of language on the site and I really appreciate it! Thanks!

  32. I would like to be included in the cleanse group page! Kelly Houtz kellyhoutz00@gmail.com

    THANKS :)


Make my day and leave me a love note!
