The Clean Slate Day 26 and a Pumpkin Banana Smoothie


2014/02/02 by nikkiledford


Home Stretch! 4 more days! Honestly, the food part isn’t hard at all. Sure, there have been some sugar slips here and there, but all in all it has been a breeze. The HARDEST thing is keeping away from my phone in the car and meditating! I seriously need to renew my resolve to meditate even after the Clean Slate is finished. Starting new habits is difficult. Especially when you feel like your new habit takes up valuable morning time… The funny thing is, I’m sure that the meditation IS the valuable part of the morning time. I guess it will just take a more concerted effort.

Doin' it.
Had a bit of a meltdown last night and realized I need more life in my life.
Social media is awesome. I love sharing photos of healthy food, fun times, and my awesome family @theledfordcrew; but nothing replaces time with them, giving life and work my full attention, and cultivating my in-person relationships.
For Mother's Day, I'm giving myself the gift of presence and I'm going to do it for the whole month.
Be back later!
