The good and the bad

I am going to warn you, I am not really sure what I am going to blog about today. Sorry for the rambling. 

This week has been a little hectic. Work was hectic and home life was hectic. Jed had to go out of town for a few days for work which meant I got my workout when I could. I was lucky to have a friend watch R while I went to a new to me class at the gym. I liked it. It was called group ride and it is similar to a spin class. The rest of the week was a combination of morning or evening. I didn't go at all on Wednesday and so in Thursday I felt grumpy about it. So what did I do? I ate like crap. No kidding, I had pizza and chips. And then for supper I had tuna helper. Have I ever mentioned how I LOVE TO COOK. Oh yeah you will never hear me admit that because I don't love to cook, I pretty much hate it. But I hate my family's eating out every night more, so I at least make something. And since I was grumpy yesterday and feeling lazy I made Tuna helper. Normally I can eat pretty darn healthy all day and then I will be a little more relax about dinner, but Thursday I just ate like crap ALL day. I did go to the gym but I once again I was feeling lazy and I spent my whole time on the elliptical machine. Not the best work out. 

But today I got up early and went to my group power and I feel much better about today. I love that class and when I go at the butt crack of dawn I feel like I achieve something. That is good thing to feel at 5:30 in the morning. 
 This is my group power set up. 

I also had a yummy breakfast, Ezekiel English muffin with peanut butter and sliced banana. I felt more awake and energized this morning. Normally I just have a banana because that is the only thing that sounds good at 4:45 in the morning. But then I found these English muffins at the store and thought I would give them a try and honestly they are freaking good. I toast them and then put peanut butter on it with about a half of a banana. It is quick and yummy. When I would just have a banana before I would getting a little light headed after my workout, I thought it was because I didn't have enough water before my workout but it turns out I needed more in my tummy. 

This is another one of my favorites right now. I am not a hummus person, but this stuff is yummy. And I am digging carrots right now, so this is a perfect snack for me.  This is much better than this
I told you I ate like crap on Thursday. This is some place where I am completely honest about my diet/bad habits. As you can probably tell, I struggle with a healthy diet, but I am working on it. Some days are better than others. With that said, what do you all think of cleanses? I am seriously thinking of doing the 10 day cleanse from Advocare. Have any of you done one and if so, what did you think of it?? 

Well that is all I got for you today. I hope you all have a great weekend! 
This is from my date with R the other day. One of the best dates I have had lately. Shhhhh don't tell Jed. ;) lol
