advocare cleanse {day 1.5}

Day 1.5.........What's that you say?
Well, we had a little hiccup in our cleanse.
Actually, just I had a little hiccup. 

I caught a little stomach bug last night so I took the day off from all Advocare products.  Matt continued on to Day 2 without me and I'll join back in tomorrow.  I just couldn't bring myself to take a fiber drink when I couldn't even hold water down this morning.  My amazing husband stayed home to watch P-Man so I could sleep in and recover from the fast and furious bug I had.  Thankfully by 10am I was feeling soooooo much better.  I was able to hold hold down water and a piece of whole wheat toast.

I went ahead and ate a clean diet today, just skipped out on the cleanse products. 

For lunch, I had the sweetest pineapple I've ever had in my life and salad.
{rotisserie chicken, mixed greens, dried cranberries, slivered almonds, & raspberry vinaigrette}
 For snack we had apple slices and almond butter.  Almond butter is EXPENSIVE! Since I had never had it before I bought it at Trader Joe's.  First, they have better prices that Kroger and second, if you don't like something there, you can take it back no questions asked!  If I was going to spend $5.99 on a jar of almond butter I wanted to be able to take it back if I didn't like.  This snack really hit the spot this afternoon and the almond butter was pretty tasty.  
 Since I had planned on being at work all day, I prepped dinner last night.  After being sick in the middle of the night it was nice to just pull a yummy fresh dinner out of the fridge and warm it up.  We had a "Burrito Bowl". 
{Homemade Tex-Mex Rice, Crockpot Salsa Chicken, Lettuce, Tomatoes, Avocados, & Fresh Salsa}
**Technically we cheated because my salsa recipe has a tablespoon of sugar, but that's okay.  I'm sure a tablespoon won't hurt us!!

Matt just munched on some carrots and hummus and I had a pear a little bedtime snack.  
Hopefully tomorrow I will be back on track with Day 2.

I was going to ask you how it was going. Joel and I are thinking about doing this when we get back from vacation, you know, clean all the toxins out. I figured I would wait and see how you guys did first.

Sorry you got sick, glad you're feeling better now. hopefully you stay that way.
