Tuesday Treats

Hi everyone! Hope you all had an amazing long weekend. I was starting to get nervous on Saturday that the whole weekend was going to be a wash but Sunday and Monday were gorgeous and I even got sunburned. Yesterday we picked up our new puppy, Olive, and she is absolutely adorable.

Pixie seeing what Olive is all about. Olive is actually Pixie's niece!

If you're like me and ate a bit too much this weekend (and during the month of May), it's time to get back on track for June. Starting Saturday, and for this rest of the month, I am going gluten-free. I have a feeling it will be a bit harder this time around considering it's summer and I love a cold beer and all the BBQ fixin's but I am determined to get back to not eating everything in sight. I went gluten-free for lent, which is six weeks, and lost seven pounds and felt great. 

I have a few friends who did the Clean Program by Dr. Junger, that Gwyneth is a fan of but 21 days of 2 shakes a day and one small salad is way too restrictive for the most social months of the year (for me, at least...). I like the ideas behind the clean program (no coffee, alcohol, gluten, dairy, meat, processed food, etc.) so I went on the website to see if there were any other options. The Clean Program has a one week "refresh" cleanse that I'm hoping to try to get me on the right track for the summer. Refresh is a week long and you have a shake for breakfast and other healthy foods for lunch and dinner. You can have eggs, fish and grass-fed beef (hugeeee for me) but still no coffee, alcohol, gluten, dairy, etc. I think coffee may be the hardest to kick but I'm excited to feel great and it's just a week.. how hard could it be..??



In honor of my last 3 and a half days of eating whatever, I leave you with some pictures that will certainly tempt me for the next month!
