[Weekend Recap] Detox Detour



Did you guys have a good Labor Day weekend? Hopefully you didn’t do too much laboring. I most certainly, did not.  I did, however, take a slight detour from my 2 week detox, but not so badly that I can’t get back on track this week.

Because I’m still very much in weekend mode, and struggling to get through this work day, I thought I’d recap the weekend using pictures and as few words as possible. Ready, Go!

Sunday morning birthday brunch with friends.  Off to a festive start with bottomless mimosas and bloody marys at the Sunny Spot.

Labor Day Breakfast Feast: Veggie Scramble w/ Bacon & Half an Avocado Bagel


The start of an epic chicken brine. A day off from work calls for an elaborate dinner. Why not try making fried chicken for the very first time?

If it’s not already obvious, I strayed a little from my 2 week detox this weekend, but not too terribly!

Detox check points:

Greens – I tried to sneak in greens wherever I could. Hey, avocado is green.
Water consumption – I was on it all weekend.
Sugar intake – Definitely splurged a few times, but not as many as I typically would on a weekend.
Alcohol – Yeah… this was definitely my weakest metric of the weekend.  Bottomless bloody marys are not conducive to a detox, BUT perfection is boring.  And bloody marys are delicious.

What was the highlight of your weekend?
