So, in an attempt to get myself back on track, I'm committing to the Clean Food Challenge for one week. What does this mean? It means that I can't consume dairy, sugar, gluten, processed foods or alcohol. I will only eat clean foods (i.e. whole foods), and I will drink 120 ounces of water each day. Some people cut out coffee, but that's not an option for me. I fear for my husband and children if I don't have coffee in my system. After all, cutting out wine is hard enough.
This challenge is going to be especially challenging because I am going to Boston with my friend next weekend (Friday - Sunday). It's going to be just the two of us, which means two days of me time. No kids, no work, no responsibilities. I love Boston and all it has to offer (especially the food), and I really think it's going to be fun to experience it while I'm participating in the clean food challenge. I will have to try to find healthy food places to visit that will allow me to stick to the challenge while still enjoying yummy food. We're planning to visit Whole Foods and Trader Joe's (sadly, my town doesn't have either) while we're there, so I'm sure I'll be fine.
So, tomorrow will be day one of the challenge. I will blog about my experience each day with recaps of what I'm eating and how I feel. I'm excited for tomorrow, but today I enjoyed these.

I know I can have them again in a week, but it was still a nice way to end my phase of gluttony and get ready to clean up my act.
