Ricotta Garlic Mashed Potatoes

Along with Primal eating and no drinking January I am also trying another detox challenge, the 21 day lemon water challenge.  It supposedly gives you nicer skin but I am more interested in the detox, metabolism boost, and digestion aid.  Here is the link, and I will definitely keep you updated as to how it makes me feel.  This is my first week back the to gym full time since mid December and today I can barely walk.  My weekly workout routine consists of: Monday- cardio kickboxing class (sometimes followed up by a cycling class); Tuesday- 1/2 hour Zumba and lift class; Wednesday- 20min of cycling and Zumba class; Thursday- 1/2 hour Zumba and lift class; Friday- cardio kickboxing.  I usually get in 4-5 days a week depending on how busy I am.  I am also excited because my boyfriend is finally joining my gym which is even more motivation to go workout :)  I'm sure lots of you are also on some sort of new year get healthy kick, so I hope I help motivate whether it is working out to eat all the yummy things or eating healthy most of the time.  Also sorry for the repeat picture...boring.
