On Balance...
Saturday, I had an unhealthy day. I won't delve into specifics, but not a single vegetable was consumed all day. By the end of the day, I was a sugary, bloated, gross-feeling mess. To me, balance means having these days once in a while and not beating myself up about it. It means reflecting on how I feel and making changes the following day to ensure that multiple days do not happen like this in a row. Sunday, I made sure to get 10 full servings of fresh fruits and vegetables. Of course I felt better. I find that I have to battle sugar cravings the day after, but that by the second day of eating clean-er I feel better.

Wednesday, I am having my wisdom teeth removed. I am scared of being put under, and I wish Matthias was home to take care of me. My dad is driving me and picking me up, and I have instructed him on buying me some fresh pressed juice and a protein smoothie from Booster Juice. I have also stocked up on Bolthouse Farms Carrot Juice and Green Juice, V8 Soups, Frozen Fruit and Almond Milk for smoothies, and Greek Yogurt. Tomorrow night I will prep 3 days worth of oatmeal so that I will have a hearty breakfast. That's what I call balance ;)
