Day 8: Marching on
I have to admit to you guys that I was a little bummed yesterday. I think I had unknowingly put a lot of pressure on myself, so I was really disappointed not only when I made the mistake with the soup mix, but also letting my eating habits get a bit out of control again. But thanks to your sweet comments and my affirmations about what makes us eat when we aren’t hungry, I ended the day on a major high note :)
Even though it wasn’t totally vegan, last night’s dinner was really good. The soup tasted great and the bread that Courtney bought was amazing!
It is the Viennese (?) all natural freshly baked bread from Meijer. I checked the ingredients and what do you know…it is all natural and vegan to boot. That made me happy :) I ate a couple more pieces than what you see there.
Also, for dessert, my sweet friend Margie brought some So Delicious non-dairy “ice cream” in Chocolate Velvet. Which is EXACTLY what it tasted like.
So yummy. I would definitely eat this again but I have a feeling it would be dangerous in my house ;-) It also didn’t “mess” with my stomach the way dairy ice cream used to.
For our entertainment of the evening, we watched the movie “Amelie” which I had NEVER seen and it came out in 2001 I think. Anyway, I love the French language and culture so I thoroughly enjoyed it. I took several semesters of French in college but have sort of “lost” it over the years. But last night I decided I could probably “get it back” just by watching lots of French movies.
This morning, I started the day off with some PB&J oats, which I had been thinking about doing for a while but the final push came after seeing them featured on Eating Bender.
I liked the taste but I think I used way too much Simply Fruit and perhaps would leave out the banana next time. But still a good, filling breakfast :)
Right now, I am snacking on some nuts and trying to get more work done today. I’m definitely feeling more motivated than yesterday!
For lunch today, I have leftover soup and bread…YUM! And my legs are still hurting so I am thankful that today I planned a weight training workout. Let’s work on the upper body and abs only please!
Cool things to read today:
- Mandisa Hundley (Christian recording artist, best known from American Idol) has lost 80 lbs (!) by NOT going on a diet and working out with a personal trainer (I love stories like this!)
- Heather and her husband Chris’s HILARIOUS messages written on eggs :) I laughed SO hard.
- Alicia Silverstone talks about her vegan diet and her new book The Kind Diet, which I am definitely going to have to check out when it is available.
Have a great Thursday…it’s almost Friday! :)
