The weekend, which is usually where my healthy-eating mishaps take place, indeed brought some challenges. The weekdays are easy: I get up, go to work, come home, go to bed. While there are meetings, socializing and teaching mixed in, my eating schedule rarely changes. The weekends are a different story.
I drank a smoothie and went to an early morning barre3 class on Saturday. One of my husbands college roommates was in town so we met up with him and a few others for lunch at Moe’s Southwest Grill. I ate half of my burrito bowl, which was filled with tofu and a ton of vegetables, in addition to some chips and salsa (yikes!) Rob and I had dinner reservations at G. Michael’s in German Village so I had already set myself up for Body Blast failure. I had a glass of wine and a crab cake for dinner… and I don’t regret one bit of it. It was delicious! While this place is a bit pricey, it’s definitely worth it for a special occasion splurge.
On Sunday I reeled it in with a smoothie and teaching a full 10 a.m. barre3 class. Did I mention that’s my favorite way to start the day? I made some amazing vegetable soup for lunch with leftover veggies (see below). I sauteed onions, carrots, celery and garlic in coconut oil then threw it into a huge pot with vegetable stock, kale, kidney beans, diced tomatoes and corn. So good! For dinner I had rice and vegetable stir fry.
And there you have it. The barre3 7-Day Body Blast is complete, with only a few bumps along the way. Tomorrow I’m going to do a little reflection and upload my grocery list from the past week.
I’ll be coming back to these posts more than a few times throughout the year when I feel myself slipping back into old habits. Or maybe before my summer vacation to Ocean Isle? I’m thinking June 30 might be the perfect time for round two!
