Monday was… well… Monday. I overslept, but that’s not such a bad thing. I “needed” to get in 60 minutes of pilates and yoga, but I only had time for 30 minutes of yoga. Clearly the sleep was more important than pilates.
Check out some of the green things I’ve been eating. Due to planned and accepted indulgences of last week, I’m cleaning up my diet. I’m lightly following this detox plan from Gwyneth Paltrow’s blog Goop, but I’m hesitant to call it a real “detox.”
Green Tea (not decaf… whoops)
I think our bodies do a pretty good job flushing out toxins on their own, so this is really just clean eating. There are a lot of scary detox plans out there (ie: nothing but juice or cabbage soup), and that sounds like a recipe for disaster.
Green Smoothie (kinda’ brown from the hemp)
This is still out of my normal comfort zone, but it focuses on real foods. I’m also adding in a Greek yogurt, apple, or rice cake when needed. I’m not one to go hungry!
Green Broccoli Soup (ugly, but prettier with the tree)
After spending waaaaay too much money at the local health foods store (wakame, shitake mushrooms, miso, fancy tea, etc. ain’t cheap), I’m ready to at least give this 7-day plan a 4.75-day shot. Day 1 = Success; I turned down local pizzeria pizza the company catered in for lunch. In your face, pizza!
Now – on to the fun stuff! Check out these stylin’ socks I received from Fashletics. Fashletics has all sorts of goodies for the people on your holiday gift list (or yourself). I liked the socks and t-shirts because of the awesome slogan, but I think the jewelry could make a great fitness inspired gift for your favorite athlete.
These socks don’t feel as thick as my fav running socks or old soccer socks, but they feel as though they’d help me power through many sweat sessions at the gym.
The model looks cooler than me, but you get the idea.
I tested them out at home for a lil’ boot camp action, but let’s face it – all of us only care about how darn cute they are! Want to win a $25 gift certificate to Fashletics?
