30 Day Challenge

I don't know when it happened, but I fell off the gluten-free train. HARD. It started as just one bagel to serve as comfort food for my poor sore Mexican bug tummy ( I realize that contradicts itself, but it sounded good at the time), and next thing you know it I am back on that delicious carb high daily.

Fast forward a few weeks, and not only do I feel like absolute garbage, my face and waistline have taken a hit. Have you ever heard the expression "carb face"? Whatdoyaknow, it's real. My face is living proof. So, you can imagine how ecstatic I was the other day when Andy turned over and said to me, "I want us to do a challenge in May. 30 days of serious clean eating: no processed garbage, I want to stock our fridge with all healthy protein, vegetables and fruits and just. eat. clean." Ohh, yes my love, yes.

An added bonus is the amaazing Farmer's Marker that Vernon has to offer is only a block and half away from our house, so we can enjoy fresh veggies, spray free, and local! This month is going to rock. In accordance with our healthy eating, I will still be going to my fabulous gym, but also doing a couple "exercise challenges" as well, to really make this month the best, including a few runs we will do together now that the weather is so beautiful out. I plan on doing the squat challenge I keep seeing everywhere, as well a plank challenge to really get my core singing, as well as get me up to a full 3 minute plank, yowza. I have done a 2 minute once, through some sort of miracle, so I know it is doable. Wish me luck.  Thanks to my other love, my Pinterest food board, I have a few recipes ready to try so that we don't lose steam on day 10, and don't get bored with our meals. Do you have any that you love and want to share? I'd love to hear about them!     New folder1 image_1367376306792507image_1367376315517925{Can you tell I did some food prep yesterday?
