Oh me oh my

Man, so I guess I'm not so great at keeping up with this.  It has been a busy few weeks since I posted last and when I finally sit down to start writing I'm either very tired or just not at all motivated.  I've been keeping up with the changes in eating, I just haven't written about it.  I'm trying!

So I had some cheating happen this weekend.  We went to the Great Wolf Lodge this weekend for Tara's birthday.  Can't believe she's already 14!  The restaurant there provided some great food to stick with the diet but I may have had some cookies, and a piece of cake.  And a beer.  Stop judging me...I can feel you judging.  :-)  But I was also chasing a 2 year old around all weekend so I think I earned some of the cheating.

So when I got home last night, put Addy to bed and straightened up for the cleaning lady (I know, it doesn't make sense) I sat down with a giant plate of fruit and water determined to oust the bad ingredients with copious amounts of fiber.  I couldn't taste anything though because my allergies were going bonkers so I popped a couple Benadryl, took a hot shower and fell asleep. 

This morning I was a little groggy but otherwise feeling ok.  I think my little fruit cleanse helped.  :-)  Whatever I have to tell myself right?  I brought some sweet potato pancakes for breakfast and a salad for lunch.  Chicken is on the menu for dinner.  Since it's just Addy and I tonight I'll probably keep it simple.  Fire cooked chicken is always a hit for a picky eater.  And me too.

I did discover a delicious combination of ingredients last week though that I would like to share.  If you like milkshakes then you'll like this one.  And if you don't like milkshakes then you must have missed childhood.

Sunny Banana Shake
Serves 2
  • 2 frozen bananas
  • 1.5c almond milk
  • 1-2 tbsp sun butter
  • blender
  1. Break the bananas into pieces.  This will make it easier to blend. 
  2. Put all the ingredients in the blender.  You can increase the almond milk amount for a thinner shake.  Decrease the amount for a thicker shake. 
  3. Blend everything until it's smooth.
  4. Pour into a cup and enjoy!

I'll try harder this week to write a few more posts.  Because I know all three of you are chomping at the bit to read them.  Have a great week!
