Wrapping up "Clean it up June"...

June is over. I managed 30 days of pretty clean eating.  I made some big strides analyzing personal triggers and pretty much cut the emotional & mindless eating.  
The last 2 days were a bit sub-optimal. I'm cutting myself a little slack though.  First, it's incredibly hot here in central California. Second, TOM. 
My body is not loving the 108*+ weather. I am retaining water like crazy.  I'm going to just keep plugging along... 

I may have to cut way back on the raw nuts. I struggle with portion control. I do better with the raw nuts than nut butters, but it's still not an optimal choice. I especially struggle to eat them in moderation as it gets close to TOM. 

The nuts were back on Day 29. And then I ate the sorbet. Really though, it's frozen bananas and strawberries blended together with some water. Is it the end of the world? No. I just have to be careful eating those types of possible triggering foods. I wasn't craving ice cream, I just wanted something cold and refreshing.

A little light on the veggies, and heavy on the fruit. Plus, more nuts.  Vegetables & protein will be my number one focus this week, especially with the holiday coming. 

Hope your weekend was great! Here's to a great week ahead.

I think your food looks amazing. Like you said, veggies and protein should be the focus - but in 108 degree temps, you eat some frozen fruits??? You are a human being, after all!! I think that is a great choice to have some refreshment - I sometimes make a worse choice and go for the coconut milk ice cream (but I have to really, really want it since we don't keep it in the house and it would require me going to the grocery store - so that only happens once every few months, haha).
