Sometimes Good intentions lead to Margaritas....

So for day 2 of my smoothie detox...

I had my regular breakfast, minus the banana. This means 1 slice of organic whole wheat toast, 1 egg, 2 egg whites & spinach scrambled together with a little organic cheddar cheese. Green tea with Truvia on the side.

I made my lunch smoothie.
1 scoop natural vanilla whey protein
chia seeds

I forgot to add the greens! I seriously was planning on adding some spinach in, but after I poured it into my glass, I realized the mistake. Too late. Taste test? YUM. problem? The consistency got thick & gooey after letting it sit until lunchtime. I think the culprit is the chia seeds, so I omitted them this morning when making today's.

My plan was to make a tomato based one for dinner, but I forgot about a coworkers going away party. Which lead to 3 of these..
Skinny Margaritas at least! Tequila, agave, lime juice.
I had only a half flatbread pizza @ Uno's with a side salad and a taste of a few appetizers. I felt less guilty of indulging a little after my healthy lunch I had.

Today we are scheduled to get a decent size snow storm, so yoga may be cancelled. I did make it to TRX this morning, and talked to my trainer about Girls on the Run, yay!

Do cocktails throw you off track?
How do you avoid temptations?

I nearly never drink, but I'd dig a skinny margarita! Sounds like a good day, not a perfect detox day, but not horrible either. Your smoothie sounds yummy.

LOVE the title of this post! i'm wondering if maybe the reason it got thicker is all the sugars mixing together over time? who knows, hopefully it didn't affect flavor too mcuh!

Love the title of this post!!
I love margaritas, but alcohol totally throws me off track in dieting. It makes me lazy and then I give into temptations. One night of good drinking = +5lbs for me.
