TGIF! I’ve survived my first week working from home.
# of days I exercised = 5
# of days I blogged = 2
# of plants that died = 2
# of cheat meals I used up = 1
# of days that I cleaned = haven’t actually started yet
So not bad, not bad. Ignoring the fact that I just pitter patter making plans to clean out the apartment instead of actually throwing things out, I’m pretty impressed with how the week is going.
One of the things I noticed about working from home is that I am consistently looking in the fridge/pantry for a snack. Yes, I’ve stocked my fridge and pantry with healthy options but the fact that I’m reaching for a new snack every 15-20 minutes isn’t going to help me with my get fit plan, so the timing couldn’t be better to learn that one of my favourite bloggers was releasing another eat clean challenge.
Let me take you back… when the clock struck midnight and the new year began, I made a resolution that I was going to make my health a priority! I found a blogger (Abigail Keeso) who was putting together a 6 day challenge called #eatcleanin2014. The challenge sounded easy enough so I signed up. What happened next was a bit of a surprise to me. Not only was I able to do the challenge but I loved her recipes and embraced cooking. I have never enjoyed cooking mainly due to the fact that I didn’t know how, but her recipes were easy and each step was detailed. I have completed every one of her challenges and I continue to rely on her recipes to keep myself on track. I wasn’t the only one who loved the challenge because Abigail has now started a website called thatcleanlife.com and her next challenge “Project Beach Body” is being released today.

Happy Weekend Everyone!
