Day 6 







Breakfast – Oatmeal Pancake with Chocolate Chips

Post Race Snack – Breakfast Pita and a Banana, 2 Chia Seed Peanut Butter Cookies

Lunch – Nachos

Afternoon Snack – This afternoon we went over to my sisters house to chill in the backyard and have a few post-race Coronas. We also had a few snacks too…Bits and Bites, Cucumber and Baby Carrots with Veggie Dip Here is a picture of me enjoying my first of 3 Coronas!


Dinner – 4 Mint Oreo cookies and a Coke Brutal! After eating all that crap and drinking a few beers, I really didn’t feel much like eating dinner!

Water Consumption:
8 glasses

7 hours, almost uninterrupted as my husband got up with our son in the night…such a treat!

So ya, today was NOT a clean eating day AT ALL, but when I started this challenge, I knew that today – race day- would be my only cheat day in all of the 40 day challenge. I definitely had my fill of non-clean foods, and I’m actually really looking forward to getting back on track tomorrow…and so is my stomach! Isn’t is crazy how quickly out body adjusts to eating clean, and then how much it punishes us when we don’t! I’m feeling like total crap this evening…tired (I’m guessing that’s because I ran 13 miles – 21,1 kilometers – today), full, bloated…just plain yuck, and I know it’s because I ate like crap today.

I’m sooo looking forward to getting back on my 40 Day Clean Eating Challenge tomorrow!

How is YOUR Clean Eating Challenge going?

Day 4




Breakfast – Clean Eating Waffles – My daughter absolutely LOVES pancakes, but this morning I didn’t have the ingredients necessary to make our usual Eat Clean Cottage Cheese Pancakes, so I poked around online and came across this recipe by The Gracious Pantry. These waffles were not only super easy to make, but really yummy and filling! We loaded ours up with fresh berries…de-lish! And as a bonus…we have leftovers to pop in the toaster for breakfast tomorrow!


Lunch – straight from the freezer to the oven…Eat Clean Chicken, Spinach and Ricotta Quesadilla. Quick and yummy!


Afternoon Snack – Chia Seed Peanut Butter Cookies – While the kids were napping I spent some ‘quality time’ on Pinterest…found a cookie recipe that used chia seeds and since I picked some up last week – and had no idea how to use them – I thought I’d give these cookies a try! So, Ryan and I whipped these up after her nap this afternoon. They are sooo good, and HEALTHY.


Dinner – Pork Tenderloin, Corn on the Cob and Grilled Asparagus – Seriously, does I get any better than that!


Evening Snack – 2 more Chia Seed Peanut Butter Cookies – At only 162 calories for TWO cookies, how can you resist!

Water Consumption:
8 glasses

7.5 hours, minus about a half hour to feed Tanner at 4:10 am
