Weekend Shenanigans

Why hello, June! Can you believe it is June 1st? I feel like we go through this every month, but seriously…where does the time go? Today is the day folks. Today is the day I go grain free, dairy free, and processed free! I picked up some stuff at the grocery store that I have never even looked at before. Hello, coconut flour, I am looking at you. It is time to kick it in to high gear. I also hit a PR in my run this morning, so I am feeling extra motivated!

Let’s get to it, shall we??

This weekend there was lots of Chicago Fire watching, cleaning house, meal planning, writing a guest post for another blogger that I am super excited about!!!, letting go of a few more clothing items, and Mario Karting.

Saturday, we went to Asian Rim for lunch. I had the spicy tuna roll and said my final farewell to rice. We sat out on their patio and it was so pretty outside!!! We ran a few errands while we were out that way too and oogled over some cute new cell phone cases but couldn’t commit to any of them.

My sushi will have to come from Whole Foods from here on out with quinoa! Shout out to Whole Foods for being so awesome with their sushi choices!!!

Saturday evening we headed to my SIL’s house for my MIL birthday celebration. Always good to spend some time with family. We also consumed some more Moe’s BBQ which is always delicious. Zero cake for me. Will power! It also helps that I don’t really care for the cake and usually only consume it for the icing.

Other scenes from my weekend included:

Weekend ScenesA microwave explosion. The package said 4-7 minutes, it was in for 3 minutes and 30 seconds when that occurred. The universe did not want me to indulge in any last corn./Coconut flour breakfast muffin/healthy finds at the grocery store/Greek Quinoa Salad for lunch this week/iced coffee with my freshly painted yellow nails. Polish is Orly’s Frozen Collection – In Summer

Linking up with Biana! I hope everyone has a fabulous week!!! Show this Monday who is boss 🙂

    YUM to that sushi. And I didn’t know that Whole Foods had quinoa sushi! That’ll be good to know once child is out! Also that yellow polish is perfection, and totally makes me wish I would have gotten it when we made our Walgreens run!

    That quinoa salad looks good, you need to share the recipe. Eating clean is a big challenge so more power to ya!
    You have to share your recipes for this week so that we can try.

    I literally just said “oh shit” when I saw your microwave explosion. Girl I have done that more times than I care to admit 😉

  • Reply Katie June 1, 2015 at 11:53 am

    Ah I miss sushi so much!!! I can’t wait to hear about how your new eating plan goes for you. Good luck!

    I hate when microwave disasters occur! At least it wasn’t something saucy. Also, I never knew about quinoa sushi. I’ll have to try it.

    Come on, corn. I hate cleaning up microwave messes.

  • Reply Jenn @ Business, Life & Design June 1, 2015 at 1:56 pm

    Good luck with your challenge! I’m glad you don’t have to say goodbye to sushi, but you have to let us know how it is with the quinoa. That sounds really interesting. Stupid corn.

  • Reply Laura @ Life with Lolo June 1, 2015 at 2:55 pm

    Holy smokes, grain and dairy free would be so tough for me! Get it girl! Thank goodness for quinoa – I love that stuff, and your salad looks phenomenal. Also, running to the store to get that yellow polish! so cute!

  • Reply Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis June 1, 2015 at 2:55 pm

    Oh no I hate having to clean the microwave! Good luck with the new meal plan this week. Sushi was a good way to “splurge” before starting and your iced coffee looks super delish!

  • Reply alyssa June 1, 2015 at 3:25 pm

    You just took me on a serious roller coaster of emotions. (1) sadness over the lack of sushi (2) shock that I hadn’t thought that grain-free would inevitably mean sushi-free (3) anger that life has to be so cruel (4) extreme relief over Whole Foods’ solution (5) happiness for you that you don’t have to give up sushi. Whew.
    Congrats on the run PR! What was it? #nosy 🙂

  • Reply Tracy June 1, 2015 at 7:20 pm

    Oooh quinoa sushi sounds interesting! Might just have to try that out since I just moved near a Whole Foods…
    Yay for your run PR! I also need to know what it was. Sharing is caring 😉

  • Reply Kerry June 1, 2015 at 8:47 pm

    Bummer on the corn, hate when that happens! Good luck on the grain free, the dairy is the hardest part for me.

  • Reply Darcy June 1, 2015 at 10:06 pm

    Sushi with quinoa?! I’m intrigued!!

  • Reply ellesees.blogspot.com June 2, 2015 at 8:10 am
