Finally coming out of the sickness fog.


I haven’t weighed myself simply because… I forgot!

I will check in with you tomorrow after I weigh myself and it’ll be interesting because despite feeling like doggy poo, I worked out for TWO HOURS on Day 7.

First workout was Orange Theory and second was Pure Barre. I had two sick day appetites on days 6 and 7 and didn’t adhere to my 6:30pm cut off due to two late night workouts.

To say I’m sore would be an understatement.

Every time I get the opportunity to work out I almost always take it because my husband is a fireman, which means he is gone two days a week and I can’t make it to the studio, where I love to go.

If only there were childcare at studios, THAT would be amazing. If I ever open one, I will have an awesome room with childcare because Mom’s should be able to work out/teach fitness classes if they want too!

Finding a babysitter for a one hour class is almost impossible, expensive and annoying. And having a husband get off a grueling 24 hour shift to immediately do the handoff feels cruel. Wouldn’t it be awesome if you had a three day a week babysitter when you get your baby from the hospital? Someone that could stay home while your kid naps so you can workout, go to the grocery store and run errands for a few hours? I know… it’s called a nanny/babysitter. But what if it was just a clone of you so you felt like they were getting the best of the best while you were gone?

Here’s what I ate:

Day 6:

same as day 5, except for dinner:

gluten free noodles from Costco with homemade pasta sauce that my husband made with a side of minestrone soup from Massimo’s Italian restaurant. Bon Apetit!

Day 7:

my sister spent the night and we decided gluten free pancakes was the best choice and IT WAS. I use Bob’s red mill muffin mix (the only Bob’s that’s no sugar added, so 0 grams processed sugar) + 2 eggs + 1 1/4 cup homemade coconut milk, 2 tbsp earth balance vegan butter, cinnamon and blueberries. Delish. I had two humongous ones..

Then I had a mini macro bar, because our fruit was gone and since my go to pre – workout is a banana, a macro bar would do. I realized I was starving, so I had another one…. thank god because I ended up in a two hour workout.

Coconut water.


Watermelon juice with basil, lime and salt post Pure Barre.

These puff things they had at Whole Foods while I grocery shopped.

Then showered for 3 years and came downstairs to my husband making the world’s most delicious post workout dinner.

This is where I ate to my hearts content.


I had TWO. Which means I ate four pieces of bread and I loved every second.

I drank so much water too!!!!!!!!

Excited to see what Day 8 brings me in terms of nutrition and weight. I’m guessing an easy 127 even, but we shall see. My muscles are popping and I’m finally almost 100% better.

I gotta buy some produce to make more juice, so I’m set for the week before our big trip to California for two VERY big reasons: bestie’s 35th bday and retreat research!



Day 2 sickness… thinking it’s a sinus sickness, because the amount of pressure I feel in my head is like being in a tight box.

Alas, I didn’t get too crazy with food or anything considering I cannot taste a thing!

Almost 3 pounds and we’re halfway through, with a sickness, no working out and brainless thoughts.

I was not hungry AT ALL. Sick = no appetite. Had the worst headache, runny nose, head in a lock. Slept for 2.5 hour

I even napped for 2.5 hours which is UNHEARD OF. I do not nap. So I was really sick.

Weight when started: 130

Today’s Weight: 127.2

2.2 pounds left is goal weight and 5 days left. We got this. But funny because now all I care about is getting well. It’s how it always happens.

  • Lemon, Ginger, Apple Juice (again, these things are like 400 calories) massive amount
  • Mini macro bar – wasn’t hungry but knew I needed something
  • Peppermint Tea
  • Golden Milk – 3 Cups
  • Banana
  • Blueberries
  • Few Mary’s Gone Cracker’s
  • Avocado
  • Dinner: minestrone soup + spinach salad with bacon, tomatoes and hard boiled eggs with balsamic vinegar
  • Loads of water
  • Stopped eating at 5pm, wasn’t hungry and sipped on peppermint tea all night long!

*** sidenote: almost everything I wanted to send 90 Day Immersion clients arrive tomorrow, so packages will be sent out as soon as everything arrives and I type up a little welcome letter.

My favorite thing is sending cards, gifts and surprising people who deserve it!

Yesterday was a complete blur.

I caught my son’s cold and had no cravings for food or anything else for that matter.

My mind was so hazy that I forgot to write down what I ate and drank, but will summarize as best as I can:

  • Lemon, Ginger, Apple Juice
  • Mini Macro Bar
  • Golden Milk from Gaia
  • Smoothie Bowl: banana, blueberries, coconut milk, granola, honey, chia seeds
  • Mary’s Gone Crackers with Avocado + himalayan salt
  • Beet juice
  • Tortilla chips with daiya cheddar cheese and salsa ( I was really craving tortilla soup and this is all I could manage with 10% energy)
  • Peppermint Tea (limitless amounts)
  • Hot lemon water

I stopped eating around 5pm, had no appetite and couldn’t help but douse myself in essential oils to get rid of my migraine. I overdid it on Real Housewives reruns, it was the only thing my brain could handle. It hurt to look at words so reading was out.

I feel like this always happens. When I get really focused and intentional, something tries to throw me off, like this cold. But it won’t throw me off. My food diaries won’t be as glowing as I wished, because you need energy to foof it up, but smoothie bowls and juices are my jam.

No barre today or any sort of movement really, other than up and down the stairs to do laundry and bring my new client gifts to their pile that I’m waiting to send…. but not until everything arrives.

So there you have it! Progress, not perfection is the name of the game.
