Cleaning Up

January 4, 2017

In an effort to clean up my body after the holidays, I’m dedicating January to eating lots of whole foods and very little processed foods. I already feel better after a few days of eating lots of lean protein, fruits and veggies, raw nuts and drinking lots of water. I got 30 minutes of treadmill yesterday and plan to go to a Hot Yoga Class today.

That’s it for now! I’m organizing my house today. I have a friend coming over to hep me rearrange all of my accessories. My dining room table is a mess right now with every little accessory on it! I hope when we are done that it looks like I bought a bunch of new stuff! lol

Here are yesterday’s eats…

Breakfast – 4 SP

Fajita Scramble

Peppers and Onions sautéed in Cooking Spray with Fajita seasoning. I mixed those in with my scrambled Egg Whites and topped with tomatoes and Smashed Avocado. I also had a few bites of White Sweet Potatoes.



Lunch – 6 SP

Tuna Salad and veggies



Snack – 6 SP

Un-Pictured Chicken Breast – 1 SmartPoint

Mini Lara Bar – 4 SmartPoints



Fruit with Almond Butter – 1 SmartPoint

I wanted something sweet. I was thinking about my Warm Cinnamon Apples, but wanted more.

I sliced an Apple, put it in a small skillet with 1 T. of water and sprinkled the apple slices with cinnamon. I added a handful of fresh blueberries and cooked until the apple slices were tender. The water and cinnamon and blueberry juice turned into this this yummy sauce. This would taste so good on Oatmeal, or Pancakes or Waffles!


I topped it with 1 tsp Almond Butter. This satisfied my sweet tooth for sure!



Dinner – 11 SP

Meal prep paid off. Everything on this plate was already prepared, I just needed to heat it up!

Baked Chicken Breast, Brussels Sprouts, Butternut Squash, Carrots.



After eating this plate of food, I was still a little hungry AND I had points left!



Hot Tea and a Mini LaraBar



Daily SmartPoints Total = 27

2017 Goals

I wake up feeling so good when I get my water in! You are drinking your water??

    You are so sweet. I’m so happy you were inspired to eat more veggies. I never thought I would enjoy veggies as much as I do now.

    (I take WAYYY to many pictures of each meal. It’s silly really, but I am so glad you appreciate it!)

    Organizing really does make me feel better, so maybe there is something to that? I know as a kid I had a small bedroom with way too much stuff and I always felt overwhelmed by it all. As an adult, when I start to feel overwhelmed by the stuff or clutter, I just start getting rid of things and it is a huge weight off of my shoulders.

    Hi Caren! It was not as eventful as I had hoped. I just need new accessories. I’m tired of the things that I have and I have too many little things. I need to buy a few new large pieces and stop trying to fill up space with a bunch of cheap little things. lol.

    Having a fresh eye did help though and I love a few of the things that she put together in some of my smaller areas, but the living room needs change.

    Ahhh…shopping I must go!

    Invite someone over for coffee and see what ideas they might have!

  4. I always say this. Your meals look so yummy. I was inspired by you to roast a bunch of veggies to go with my lunch this week. They taste good, but don’t photograph well 😀

  5. I know I do better with water–but coke keeps calling my name.
    I so need to go through my things, organize and purge.
    There is so much being said about being organized. The experts say it leads to happiness and health.
    Messy table today organized life tomorrow.

  6. I hope you do a little “Before and After” post showing how rearranging your accessories can make them look new! 🙂 I need a friend to come help me see my things with a fresh eye. Have fun!
