Is Sunday not the BEST day for television? I just got done watching The Walking Dead after Once Upon a Time and now I’m catching up on Revenge. Then I have to watch The Mentalist and 666 Park Avenue sometimes later this week.
Yes, I’m a little bit of a TV whore. I admit it. :)
My Sunday started with a run that was hard to start but, as always, totally worth it. I thought I’d be all cute and record a fun video to challenge you to hit the trails this fall but the battery died right in the middle! here’s what I ended up with…
Oh well, it was still fun and my challenge still stands. Find a trail this week give it a try. No one says you have to run it. I took a stroll yesterday with the boys and it was gorgeous!

OK, on to my less Processed day. I can’t believe I’m 4 days in!
Breakfast was scrambled eggs with a little bit of kale and a slice of bacon.
I made a big batch of scrambled eggs for the family and decided they needed to deal with the kale. The Husband immediately asked with "the green stuff was" and I just said I added some herbs since I had them from the farm. No further argument and ALL 3 boys ate with minimal complaint.
It’s the little things.
A little bit after breakfast I split another apple with Little Bean since he’s learning to appreciate them.
Notice the horseplay in the background. The 70lb 7 year old decided he wanted a piggy back ride.
Before heading out with family for the day I made some snacks and enjoyed a handful of sunflower seeds.
We were headed to a kids birthday party which served pizza and a cookie cake. Both of which were very easy to pass on for some strange reason. Cleaner diet? Momentum? Motivation? Who knows. I stuck to this..
I mean, I kind of wanted a slice (it IS pizza afterall,) but it just didn’t seem worth it. Not in the middle of this week anyway.
When I got home I was a little hungry, so I made a batch of butternut squash fries.
Honestly, I didn’t know what else to eat that wasn’t "processed," and I think that’s the beauty of a challenge like this, you have to start thinking outside the box.
Dinner was a small steak (that would have been fabulous on the grill — bastards!) broccoli and corn on the cob.
Once the kids went to bed I enjoyed my Banana Soft Serve out of the Yonanas machine…
It may look like a pile of poop because I added some dark cocoa powder, but man is it yummy!
I’m ending the day totally satisfied. Not hungry, not stuffed and ready to tackle tomorrow.
It was truly a Sensational Sunday. :)
