5 Things Friday: Thoughts, Happiness, Work, Recipes & Blogs!

Happy Friday!

I’m 5 days into this “detox/cleanse” thing and I have a couple of thoughts about it.

5 thoughts about this detox:

  • I’ve never done anything like this. I’ve cut out dairy before because I’m pretty sure it has a link to my skin issues, but never cut out grains and sugar.
  • I don’t really have issues with ¬†cutting out gluten, dairy, soy and beans (for the short term!!), but the thing I miss most is the sugar in my ice coffee.
  • I imagine that this weekend is going to be a little tougher because we usually have pizza or make a special dessert, so I’m already missing that.
  • I feel “cleaner”. I don’t know if that makes any sense, but I haven’t had any bloating or stomach troubles AT ALL.
  • I think I probably have to stick with dairy free because I think it’s a bigger issue for me than I want to admit.

Again, if you want to see what I’m doing, check out my post and email me for more info.

5 things I’m working on right now:

  • I haven’t mentioned this at all here, but now that it’s pretty official, I’m re-launching Blissful Eats!I’m so excited to have new varieties of granola and chocolate bites. We’re relaunching around June 5th.
  • Pull ups. I can do only one chin up and about 3/4 of a pull up, so I’m working on this a couple times a week. ¬†I’m doing this program (how funny is this guy with no shirt & the hat). Except I’ve started with 5 sets of 5 reps, not 8.
  • Pushups. Doing 100, 3 days a week.
  • Getting caught up on Grey’s Anatomy. I’m 3 episodes behind. Anyone else still watch?
  • Working on not drinking so much coffee! This cleanse is helping!

5 things making me happy

  • Liv can finally reach the microwave buttons on her little play kitchen. She was SO psyched and it was so cute so see.
  • Do I mention the Today show in every post? It just makes me smile and brightens my morning.
  • Friday!
  • Sunshine
  • Orphan Black. We started it two weeks ago…maybe even 1.5 weeks ago and binge watched it till we finished. It’s SO good.

5 recipes I plan on making now and some after this is over:
