Another Monday, another week where I feel like I am starting over….again!

I started the whole Crazy Sexy Diet Challenge and I have failed miserably.  The first week was rough and as it were, I made some alterations to the “diet” so to speak.  In truth, the CSD is not designed for people who workout rigorously like I do.  I was finding I didn’t have enough energy to get through my workout let alone feel like I had enough energy to even start one.  So the changes I made were small but simple.

I added some full carb/gluten foods back in.  I had my best workouts/runs after I ate pizza or pasta (duh) which are technically no-no’s on the CSD.  I have also been very wary about the dairy and other foods I’ve been putting into my body but on the weekends I tend to go a little crazy which makes me feel like I am setting myself back.  I’ve also been really good about the drinking thing – although this weekend was an exception since I decided to just enjoy myself – I was at a reunion after all! (I’ll get to that in a minute).

Basically what I think I’m going to end up doing is resorting back to my original eating habits – they were not bad in any way – I was just trying something different with the CSD.  Eating clean is the name of the game – and I am still liking the green smoothies I make so those are a nice addition to my daily eating habits.  I just might not drink them first thing in the morning.  Also – I realized this weekend how MUCH I miss coffee.  Yep.  I still want it.  I figure, I have about a month left to live at my place and when I am out of here, I’ll change everything around.  I have a lot of different things ahead of me in May – CAN IT BE MAY ALREADY??!?!

In other news….this weekend I went to one of my Alma Mater’s – Albright – for a Phi Mu/Phi Beta Mu Alumnae Reunion.  It was a BLAST!  I forgot how much I loved those ladies.  I really couldn’t have asked for a better weekend.  The weather was gorgeous – I reconnected with a ton of friends – and reminisced about the fact that in some ways I wish I would’ve stayed there instead of transferring…..BUT….if I hadn’t have gone to La Salle, I never would have met some of the most amazing friends and gotten to experience the things I did – nor would I have ended up at CMU or in Michigan and met even more amazing people.  Everything happens for a reason.

Some pics for your enjoyment 🙂
