Dump the Junk- Overview

So now that I have completed my 10 Day Rejuvenation, I feel so motivated to continue a whole foods way of eating in my life, I like feeling good and having energy and not feeling bloated or have tummy troubles. 

Last night we met as a group and had a little pot-luck, where we shared some of our favorite yummy recipes. There was salad and rice crackers and guacamole, and beets and quinoa  all really good yummy nutritious foods. We talked about how we felt now, and the challenges that we faced along the way it was nice to have a group to talk and share with. The highlight of the evening was dessert. Heather shared with us a super healthy yet super tasty dessert, something that we would all enjoy and bonus something that we could probably all make to share over the upcoming holidays :) I mean lets face it the holidays can be rough for even the most careful eaters. 

I will get the full recipe soon but to give you an idea of what was in them, Carob powder, raw chocolate bites, gogi berries, pumpkin seeds, and I think a few other things. 

This was a great experience for me I would so do it again.

XC

So today at Regional's there was an open JV race, so we have a few girls on the team who really wanted to get varsity Time. We crunched the numbers and figured out the splits so that they would know what times they needed to hit at the 1,2,3 mile Markers. My goal was to Run right on Varsity Pace and try to pace them there. So with a 23:26 I did a pretty good job at pacing out each mile for the Varsity Time Finish (Varsity time is 23:30). Plus it was really fun to actually get to run the race today. Not going to lie sometime when they are running I just want to get out there and join them. It was a Fun day though at Regional's.

"Most people never run far enough on their first wind 

to find out they've got a second. 

Give your dreams all you've got 

and you'll be amazed at the energy 

that comes out of you."

I tried Kombucha

Stopped at the Health Food store to pick up a few things, and decided to try Kombucha. What is it? Well  Fermented Sweet Tea that is supposed to have many detoxifying Benefits. It was light and refreshing and had a light bubbly taste. It was a little pricey though so not something that I would buy all the time. 

Try It
