Well, you would think that since I didn't post for the latter part of last week I would have tons of photos to share and stories to tell... you would think. But no, in fact I have just a few! I always look back when I have no photos and think "what the hell was I doing all weekend?". Somehow I had a party and never took pictures of the food, the minimal but cute decorations, the pretty array of champagne glasses or the countless bottles of Champs we consumed. Short answer, being present in the moment without my phone in hand. No apologies for that! I did snap chat a bunch of pics and videos and if you saw that then you know we were having fun! The NYE fun continued the next morning as I had some sleepover guests cause we don't drink and drive. We polished off the remaining champagne with Mimosas and I cooked a big ass breakfast and then everyone adjourned to their own homes and beds for the remainder of the day. Super fun holiday!
The rest of this past weekend was spent relaxing, watching old movies (Breakfast Club/16 Candles sucked me in on New Year's Day) catching up on Netflix, football, trivia in the bar and food shopping/meal prepping for my Whole30 which kicks off today!! I have been to Earth Fare, Sprouts, Costco and Publix this weekend to get every last thing that I will need to be successful this week and some things that will last the month. Sunday I made egg muffins enough for 6 breakfasts on the go. Sausage, onion, Franks Red Hot and Prime Rib (leftover), scallion, horseradish were the two combos I went with for this week. I baked and shredded a spaghetti squash, 4 white potatoes, sauteed zucchini and chicken tenders for lunches. I feel really good knowing that all I really have to think about is dinner for the whole week. Snacks will be almonds, carrots, berries and nut butters, not sure what else but I have good healthy options. I am super psyched to get back to clean eating, my under eye bags have bags and it's not from being tired. It's from not eating clean and retaining water, inflamation is a killer for me at this point in my life! More on all of this tomorrow as Laura and I link up for our first Break Up Challenge 2016 post so stay tuned!
