Back on track :)

So, for those of you that read my Friday post you know I made it to day 5 of the cleanse. I was not on the cleanse over the weekend and I didn't work out as much as I would have liked. I only got in a long workout on Sunday. Life happens sometimes and I was busy with friends and activities. Anyways, I pretty much ate what I wanted over the weekend IN MODERATION. I had tilapia tacos (instead of the cheeseburger I really wanted), sushi (split with a friend), crab nachos (which I split with my dad), and I might have drank a little. The key to this for me is to realize that I have CHANGED. The old me would have ate the cheeseburger and regretted it, would have ordered too much sushi and would have devoured the whole plate of nachos alone. BUT I can't anymore. I get full faster and that's just the way it is. I also can't drink like I used to. A few drinks and I am done. I know my limit. It's a lifestyle change and I am changing (might be slow, but it's happening!). So, today I started back on day 6 of the cleanse. Here's how it went:

Breakfast: Probiotic, 2 eggs with a little salsa, low sodium bacon, and a few strawberries
AM Snack: orange
Lunch: Salad with the best dressing I have been able to find, tomatoes, and a Larabar
PM Snack: Apple and PB2 and a few raisins.
Dinner: I ate at the parents tonight (can't beat mom's cooking).. she made a chicken casserole and I did my best to pick it apart and eat chicken with a salad and avocado, plus a banana.

I ran 2.0 miles, did 3.0 miles on the bike, and worked my arms, back, and butt today. My arms were on fire! WHEW! I incorporated some intervals on the run today and am going to try and work on my time.

I am just a work in progress like everyone else :) A girl trying to find the balance between healthy living, enjoying life, working out, and having fun in between! Have a great week ladies! :)
