7 Day Body Blast – Day 2

One day down, six to go! My salad last night turned out amazing despite the fact I forgot to buy fennel. If you recall, the salad was a Salmon & FENNEL Salad. Needless to say, I was nervous the taste would be completely off. It was still fantastic to my surprise and awe. I can say this because my trooper-of-a-husband, who has been eating everything I’m eating, completely agreed. His report on everything I’ve made? So far, so¬†good!

I started off today with a body blast elixir (I still don’t enjoy it, but Rob actually does!) and a Butternut Squash & Cherries smoothie. The smoothie was amazing. Instead of the raw almond butter, I used natural peanut butter. It’s also worth noting that when you freeze a banana, peel and cut in half first. Last night I prepped lunch and chopped everything but the avocado for my Arugula Orange salad. I had leftover White Bean & Kale soup so I’ll be eating that for dinner.

I packed my workout clothes and all of my food and headed into work for the day. I’ll be going directly to a studio class with Katy at 5:45 p.m. and I teach class at 7 p.m. I’m excited to head in and hear how everyone is doing. I’m also looking forward to feedback and more recipe suggestions!

I teach tomorrow morning at 6 a.m. and can hopefully get a good night’s rest tonight. I had some trouble sleeping last night, but I think that was due to the fact that a rambunctious kitten wouldn’t leave me alone. But seriously- how can I be mad at that face?
