I was so indulgent last week, or so it felt. I ate whatever, drank too much wine, and exercised too little. I also used too little sunscreen, and I hate to say it, but I just prefer me with some color. Real color, not tan-in-a-can color. I know, I know. It's terrible. I'll be good the rest of the spring and summer. I just needed a little base. It's my vice. My kids, on the other hand, are like little Edward Cullens (minus the sparkling-in-the-sunlight-thing), and are in constant need of SPF 300. I'm not sure they produce melanin at all. However, they do look cute on the beach. Not that I'm biased:
I did manage to sneak in a few runs on the beach, which was really nice. The weather was insanely perfect. And, the beach is flat enough that five miles feels pretty easy.
But, aside from a few runs, I did nothing good for my body. So, this week is detox. I hate detox. I'm trying to avoid dessert, and worse, alcohol. It's not that I'm a raging alcoholic, but I do like my wind-down glass of wine around 5:30 every day. It's kind of a ritual. And, let's be real. It's more like 2 glasses. Which, really, is not exactly a crime. But, sometimes I think it's good to give your body a break from the things it craves. We'll see if I last the whole week. This gorgeous spring weather makes it tough, but I think I can make it.
I'm off to make a healthy dinner of black beans and rice. Can't wait to hear the not-so-subtle cries of disappointment from the kids on that entree.
