Tired

I was a little bummed to not make it to the gym this morning, but sleep was no bueno last night, and waking up at 530 sounded like a nice slice of hell-pie (have you had that before? it's pretty much awful) so I thought I would sleep in with the kiddo, but guess who decided to wake up at 6 this morning? Combine that with an impromptu visit from my mom and you get absolutely no exercising (though hauling the tiny one in her massive car seat to and fro is a bit of a workout).

Food today was mostly leftovers, and for that I am grateful. You shall have no pictures, because repeat crappy iphone pics of food you've seen before is both gross and boring. You shall however, get a super gross picture of my half-eaten dinner.

Breakfast? Green shake. I love that they hold up for 2 days so I only have to deal with the mess once.  Lunch was leftover chili w/ some green onions added.

Dinner, though visually unappealing, was super good, and not bad on the calorie count. Baked tofu with spicy barbecue sauce (straight from the Sunflower Market bottle). I marinated it in Braggs, liquid smoke, chili powder and a little olive oil. I made Vegs some potatoes, but I opted for broccoli polenta, which was another bonus discovery. Polenta itself is pretty doable, calorie-wise, but I added a cup of broccoli and some nutritional yeast. So good and SO FILLING.

I had enough calories left over that I was able to treat myself to a strawberry Trio bar. Not a bad way to end the day.

Tomorrow, I must get to the gym in the morning, it's weird how I'm getting so hooked on the healthy lifestyle that I really miss exercising after only one day. I also need to clean my house, which is an utter dump right now. I'm also planning on getting my meal plans for the next week done. I've been winging it this past week, and it will be much easier to keep things under control. I just got 2 great cookbooks, and I'm so excited to delve into them to plan. Check out Veganomicon and Appetite for Reduction, both by my favorite cookbook author (vegan, anyway) Isa Chandra Moskowitz. Hopefully I'll get it planned, which will make sharing recipes all the easier.

I really appreciate all the support I'm getting here. It honestly helps so much knowing that there are people rooting for you, and it makes me much more conscious of what I'm doing, knowing that others will be hearing about it. Love you all!

  6. Downloaded the app last night! It's on sale right now too. Was planning on doing it this morning, but my phone had to be updated and since it's so old it takes forever so it was still going when I went to bed last night. I'm thinking I'll get up early tomorrow morning and do my first run.

  7. I wish you could cook for me too. This is my problem, cooking. I love food but I fail miserably when it comes to feeding myself. :( I know you say your food is easy to make (and Im sure it is...for you) but that isnt going to convince me to cook it at home for myself. I hate that about myself. I need a personal chef.
