A Special Weekend & Day 1 Clean Eating begins


I hope you all had a special weekend with your family & friends. Valentine’s Day is all about spending time with your loved ones and I enjoyed every second of this weekend.

Here is a quick weekend PICTURE RECAP:


Friday night Marc and I went to dinner at Blackstone Steakhouse in Greenwich.


We enjoyed our alone time and a glass of wine!


We split a tomato, green bean & mozzarella salad.

My meal was ridiculously good… I had the Herb Crusted Chilean Sea Bass and we shared a large side of Bacon Brussel Sprouts


 Marc had Beef Medalions!

Saturday morning I taught boot camp to a lovely class. It felt great to get my sweat in early.


Marc’s parents came over shortly after to spend time with us. We were entertained by Ava running around like a mad woman and playing with her toys. She seriously has a crazy amount of energy.

They left in the afternoon and I made a trip over to see my parents and drop off an Orchid for my mom and some chocolate covered strawberries for them to enjoy!


Marc made me dinner… we weren’t that hungry because we ate a big lunch but we had some Dijon Chicken with salad and a sweet potato.


Ava enjoyed dinner with us!


Clearly I secretly saved room for dessert. LAVA CAKES!


The first one we tested out FAILED…. it was an epic fail.


I was a little nervous for the rest of the mini lava cakes so we popped the rest back into the oven for a little longer.


Talk about ooey gooey chocolatey goodness. We had a little vanilla ice cream on top and my chocolate craving was satisfied ;) I might have even done a little dance it was that good.

My sweet husband Marc got me a massage gift certificate. Guys I have never had a full massage before. I am super ticklish and kind of nervous about it, but between past hip and shoulder injuries I could sure use it. It was a very thoughtful gift.

I can go on and on about the weekend and how special it was… but today is DAY 1 of our 5-day Clean Eating Challenge and I couldn’t be more pumped to work with this group of people. Their energy excites me. My big tip to all the challengers is to take this “ONE DAY AT A TIME!”  Stay focused and you will all cruise through the week!

What did you and your loved ones do this weekend?

Are you ready to eat clean this week?
