i am an athlete.
i am a pescatarian.
(i eat 90% vegetarian and vegan meals but have not made the full plunge. time will tell)
i am passionate about/and love food.
i am on a journey to be healthy and fit.
and i am constantly learning how to balance these two into a healthy and complete lifestyle.
ok. i’ve definitely been mia lately. and. that is because i feel off the band wagon. i know. awful. am not feeling good about it.
i can’t change what i haven’t done up to this point. all i can do is move forward and get it done!
today was a 60% good day and 40% needs improvement. i did well at work. oatmeal for breakfast, tasty fiesta salad from chipotle, banana for snack (it was suppose to be a pre-running snack. oops.)
then i got home. and instead of drinking water - because i was “starving”. i decided to mow down on some peanut butter puffins. if you haven’t had those. you should at least try them. but i do warn you, they are amazingly delicious and highly addicting. not exactly part of a raw diet. so. those are GONE. just need to cut them out.
so i had WAY too many of those. like we’re talking just about half the box. ugh. bad. moving forward…
i made zucchini noodles with my new julienne/spirooli slicer - check out this youtube demo. the guy doing the demonstration is a crack up. but yes. AMAZING. probably one of the best purchases i’ve made in awhile. and i also made a delicious raw no oil pesto. thanks to goneraw.com.
so. not the best day. but not my worst day. goal is to start fresh tomorrow. i’ve got leftovers ready to go and i added some cherry tomatoes. strawberries for a snack. another banana. almonds and dried cranberries. probably oatmeal again for breakfast. i am set up for success. now i just need to come home. push through my mid-day low (i get SO tired on my way from work - traffic! hate it.) and then i’m exhausted by the time i get home.
i’m going to eat my almonds and dried cranberries about a half hour before i leave for work. then get home and RUN! like walk in the door. change. and go! i feel like i’m going to have a great day tomorrow. done and done.
official update to come. wish me luck.
