Cleaner Life Challenge days 1-3!

I'm doing the Cleaner Life Challenge with Heather and Rose and I'm very excited about it. I was thinking of doing something like this myself actually, then they announced their challenge and I thought it was perfect!
Well on day 1 I had a wrench thrown in right away! About a month ago, the house next door to me burned and Monday all the equipment showed up for the demo before I got home from work. I called my mom and told her that if I was going to get any sleep I needed to come to their house. So I packed up the doggies and myself, made a cup of coffee with rice milk and a green monster and hit the road!

For lunch we took my grammie out to The Long Horn (her fav place). They had a new salad on the menu that looked so good. My mom told the host/manager person we didn't eat chicken out though and he suggested we ask for salmon instead so we did! It was so so good! It was baby green, strawberries, mandarin oranges, pecans, and the roasted salmon with raspberry yummy! And very filling! I also grabbed my grammie's steamed broccoli off her plate cuz she can't eat them!

For dinner we had left over smoked chicken my dad had made the day before, my mom heated it up on the grill. I also had the roasted potatoes that my mom made with just olive oil and salt. I told her I was doing this challenge so she made sure everything she made I could eat!

Then the next day, Day 2, was the problem...there was no breakfast. I went and searched her soldier angels stash and finally found a Cliff Bar. I know it has soy in it, but otherwise I would have had nothing. They eat yogurt for breakfast or white english muffins which I don't like anyways.

For lunch we went back to Moe's and I got my sammy on a fresh whole wheat roll. It wasn't the same, but kept me fuller longer!

Then I came home and the house next door was gone! On the way home I stopped at the store and got some veggies cuz I was out and some fish cuz it was on sale.

For dinner last night I had tilapia with Baja Lime marinade. It was so yummy...I also had steamed carrots and broccoli.

For dessert I had a bowl of cherries, they were pretty good, not the best I've had.

Today I slept in because I'm working tonight. Then I got up and had a Goodbelly of course and a Green Monster. This time I put a kale leaf in it and frozen raspberries. It was so yummy!

Fueled me up for the gym, where I walked on the treadmill for 45 minutes. It felt good!

Tonight at work I'm going to have a salad with a piece of left over fish on it...I can't wait!
