Week 1's "back on track" review-
The past week was FANTASTIC,  despite one minor run-in with some dried cherries. I ate really clean and as a result, I'm feeling "clean" (if that makes sense).  Exercise is on point again too.  I had to postpone my morning run today due to an appointment, but I've already set things up with hubby to go later this evening. 
The scale this morning read 165.0 which gives me a loss of 7.2 lbs this week.  While it feels good to show huge losses (while not starving myself), I don't expect to show that next week. To be frank, it would not surprise me to show negligible loss next week.  I'm okay with that though, as the number is only part of the equation.  Most importantly is how I'm feeling and how well I'm doing with consistency in eating clean.

Now, if you've been reading me for any length of time you know that anytime I find a product I like, I like to share.  Today I've got two things .
The first, is called kombucha.  To read more about kombucha, click here
I'm generally not a fan of drinking calories, but in this situation the calories and sugar are small. I drink TONS of water, but sometimes I just want something different. I like carbonation, but try not to drink too much diet soda.  This is a perfect solution for me.  At 35 cal/serving and 2 g of sugar I feel comfortable drinking this. As a bonus, it's loaded with probiotics and other good stuff. (Just a warning, as it's fermenting gives it natural effervescence, so don't shake it or I've heard it can "explode" upon opening).  There are several brands and flavors available. The one pictured above is a flavor I just tried last night.  Hubby and the kids refused to try it since it was green lol, but I liked it. 
My second "find" is probably something you've seen.
 The one in the middle is pink grapefruit flavored Perrier (my fave).  These ARE NOT sweet!  If you don't like mineral water, you most likely won't like this.  I like to put mine in a big ol' wine glass with lots of ice and feel fancy :) Zero calories, zero guilt.

So there you have it.  Mama's back on track, and you have a few new things to check out, if so desired. Anyone tried these things already? 
Hope you're having a great week! Happy Thursday...

How does a person lose 7lbs in ONE WEEK!!!!!!!!! :)

Congrats on getting back on track. Nope, have never tried those products, but maybe I will. I, too, like putting my beverage in a wine glass. I knew there was a reason I've stuck around your blog (LOL)!

Glad to see you back! I'm trying to get there myself. Just having trouble with the mental part (okay, that's really all of it, isn't it?). Great job on the 7 pounds! That's dedication no matter how you look at it!
