Weekly Menu and an Update

Well hello there! It’s been a while since I’ve updated on my goings-on, and my has there been a lot. Michael and I have been hella busy lately with work, wedding planning, CrossFit, and oh so many other things. I’ve been a bad blogger recently but I’m here to make amends! I’ve missed you all very much. :)

Right now we’re in the middle of doing our very first 21 Day Sugar Detox, day 11 to be exact. We decided to try it out after completely binging on gluten, sugar, and oh so many other amazing things during our Vegas trip at the end of July. We went for a short weekend to meet up with my two closest friends, Tiffany and Jackie, and their significant others. The trip was one crazy blur, but it was a ton of fun.

Our little weekend getaway holds especially strong meaning because I doubt we’ll ever get a chance to do something like that ever again. We’re all at that stage in your life right before you really catapult into actual adulthood. I see plenty of weddings, kids, and houses in our futures so I’m thankful we got the chance to make this happen.

Okay, so back to the detox, it’s actually been going really well. The first week was a bit rough with sugar withdrawal symptoms, but I’m feeling pretty good now. It’s amazing how you can see physical differences in your body after such a short time of eating clean. My stomach lays flatter and my skin looks so much healthier. The hardest thing for me so far has been avoiding fruit and, like usual, not being able to eat out. Just having the option taken away of being able to go buy some quick restaurant food makes me feel so burdened with having to cook. Oh well.. we’re over half way there so I’m not giving up now!

Here’s what we have planned for the menu this week:
