Super Short Post…

This Will Be Short Because I’ve Got Some Really Important Things To Do…

… like watching the Bachelor episode I missed earlier. Of course, it’s extremely important that I watch it tonight before bed as to not catch any spoilers on my Facebook Newsfeed tomorrow that might ruin it! … What a stressful life 😉

The last few days I’ve had a terrible sweet tooth and have been wanting nothing but carbs and sugar, sugar, SUGAR! Trying to keep that in check has been hard.

I made some chocolate chip and also peanut butter vegan cookies for my husband and I think I’ve had at least one cookie every day since Thursday! I’m not knocking myself too much for one cookie a day. In the big picture, that really isn’t all that bad. At the same time, I’m trying to meet a weight-loss goal and cookies aren’t a great choice to get me there! But, anyhow, here’s my summary for today:

  • Breakfast: Apple, mixed nuts, 1/2 Avocado
  • Light Lunch: Carrots & Hummus
  • Post-Workout Drink: Plant Protein Powder + Almond Milk & PB2
  • Dinner: Soy Ginger Marinated Tofu + broiled Japanese Yams (& cookie)
Tofu + Japanese Yam

Marinated Tofu + Japanese Yams (Spiral Cut & broiled)

Don’t Forget to Check Out My Progress on my Workout Cal!

Bachelor Time! Have a good night everyone!


Well, I Meant To Workout, But…

20 Nov

Today started with the best intentions of working out…

BUT, despite my good intentions I wound up running around like a mad-woman today –> Class, Veterinarian Office, Grocery Shopping,  Cooking, Cleaning, Taking a two-hour online ‘pre-course‘ so I can enroll in an online class next semester, then ate some dinner, and started preparing for this math placement test I have to take tomorrow.

My advisor instructed me to take this test instead of waiting for my transfer credit to come in so that I can schedule a physics class. She assured me, “it’s just basic stuff, you’ve had algebra and calculus in your past transcript, you’ll be fine!”. Once I got home and started looking over the sample questions I realized how much I’ve forgotten since grade level math! Polynomials, radicals, multiplying exponents, improper fractions, … WHAT?? I’m convinced now that I was, in fact, smarter as a fifth grader … sad realization…

Anyway! While I did not go to the gym today, I did a good job of staying in my calorie range!

Breakfast: PB Bagel and Apple

Lunch: Marinated Baked Tofu, Breaded Okra, Peas

Dinner: Mexican (Beans on Corn Tortillas with Cilantro, Romaine, Salsa, and Avocado)

Here’s my food breakdown for today (below)

Check out my calendar to see how I’ve been doing for this week!

Thanks for checking in guys! Have a great day!
