Clean Eating Link Up and Random Awesomeness

This week has just flown by, which is why we should make 3 day weekends mandatory. That one little extra day makes a world of difference. Or it’s just an extra day for me to sit around and watch Arrested Development {totally obsessed with this show}.

Yesterday I posted a picture of Twilight Sparkle and I on Instagram {@skinnymeg31} and Brandi is such a great friend she made a side by side and texted it to me. Love her!

June 2011 to May 2013

Sometimes you forget how far you've come, seeing these two pics next to each other really made me feel good. My dedication has paid off, my hard work shows, and I'm proud of my accomplishments even if I don't have a rock hard body. Progress not perfection.
So thank you crazy B!

Second, in case by some crazy feat you don’t follow me on any of my social media, yesterday Brandi and I were asked to show up at Skyline Ranch at the crack of dawn {not that I wouldn’t already be up} to demonstrate some of the obstacles for Pretty Muddy. It was fun and we met some pretty awesome women, including DeLese who is one enthusiastic woman. She rolled around in the mud FOR FUN and is also a breast cancer survivor; she is one tough {and fit} cookie.

I'm sure she will appreciate this pic :)
The segment went well, I may have tripped Fiona and she may have landed in the mud. Maybeeee I bust ass on camera, but it’s all good, I look tan so there’s that. Watch it for yourself here.

Alright, I know y’all are here for some clean eating recipes! Let’s do this, I’m starting my cleanse Monday and I have five days’ worth of lunch/dinner’s planned out.

L: Couscous with chicken and broccoli {my favorite brand is Near East}
D: Chicken Fajitas
*chicken strips, bell peppers, onion, fajita seasoning in a baking dish covered with foil 425 for 25 minutes. Paired with a brown rice/cilantro/lime juice side.

L: Flavored Quinoa with chicken sausage and bell peppers
D: Spaghetti
*turkey meat, stone ground wheat noodles, no sugar added sauce, mushrooms, garlic, onion

L: Zesty Tuna
* low sodium white mean tuna {in water}, ½ avocado, lemon juice, pepper, torn basil leaves. Serve on lettuce, spinach, whole wheat bread {stone ground}
D: Breakfast for Dinner
*eggs, mushrooms, onion, tomato, spinach, whole wheat toast

L: Couscous with chicken and broccoli
D: Chicken and Spinach Skillet Dish
*recipe below

L: Sweet Potato with turkey, black beans, corn, cilantro
D: Stuff Bell Peppers
*I just dice mine up and make it a mix. 3 Bell peppers, turkey meat or ground chicken, flavored red bell pepper quinoa. Cook, mix, and serve.

Breakfast will include: oatmeal, banana, hard boiled eggs, avocado on whole wheat toast
Snacks: I’m in luck, it’s SUMMER!! That means melon and fruit, holla! Nuts and baby carrots with hummus.

Saturday and Sunday I’m going to get crazy and try 4 new recipes. I get so stuck in a rut with my easy meals because I don’t have the time/motivation to try new things, so I’m challenging myself. Oliver’s out of town all week, which will make it easier on me {hopefully}.

My workouts will continue as normal, I’ve done this cleanse several times and have never crapped my pants, so no reason to not workout the first 2 days. I know some people are concerned about it, but honestly it’s fine.
I will be drinking spark, yep. Mango Strawberry.
Now it’s your turn, link ‘em up!
