Ah, Monday came quickly. I wish weekends were longer. Here’s my food update from Sunday: Green tea with coconut milk String cheese X 2 {that’s the last of my stock so no more for me from now on =( } A handful of grapes and cantaloupe Some veggie pasta with the left over cheese-less Alfredo sauce It’s a serving of veggies for each portion! Score. And then my parents took me and Daniel to Famous […]

New Outlook

Alright, time to get back into this thing! I’m pretty excited because now that I posted My Confessions, I’ve actually been doing a lot better about exercising and eating healthier!

Here’s what I’ve been doing lately: I’ve been trying to exercise every day by either doing a Jillian Michaels video or cardio. She’s hardcore! I’ve been alternating between her 30 […]

These Are My Confessions

I really am a terrible blogger. I come back temporarily and then leave again. Life happens. And sickness =( *cough cough* I finished the Vegan Challenge but not without a few cheat days. I hope to post the rest of it soon. It went well but I didn’t lose much weight and to be honest, I wasn’t very consistent with the workouts. I want to redo it but maybe not go as extreme as vegan.

Day 20 The vegan pancakes are delicious! I had mine with sliced bananas. Next time I’d like to throw some strawberries or blueberries in them. If you don’t have all of the flours you can just use All Purpose (AP). I had AP flour and Spelt but no Flax Meal so I replaced it with Almond Meal. They turned out great! Check out my action shot =) Up close and personal now. Fluffy and oh […]

Day 18 Now get ready to feast your eyes on my new favorite VEGAN DESSERT! It’s AHHHH-mazing. I’m working out the details still but recipe will come soon. I wish I could eat it every night. In fact, I’ve made it a few times already… I’m not for sure how vegan the chocolate chips are though. I bought Ghirardelli dark chocolate chips that don’t have any milk or milk products in them but they are […]

Day Seventeen ~ Vegan Challenge

Day 17 We had our neighbors over for dinner so we went all out! Our dinner consisted of a spinach and fruit salad for an appetizer, the Pesto with Vegetables for the main course, and a homemade Larabar for dessert. This time for the pasta we used the same macaroni noodles from before but we roasted the tomatoes first. We loosely followed this recipe. Well, we just added dried basil instead of fresh for the […]

Day Sixteen ~ Vegan Challenge

Day 16 For breakfast I had toast again. Then for lunch I crumbled a veggie burger over rice. For dinner I went with a simple spinach salad with lots of fresh veggies. Then I followed Day Three of the Five Day Workout Plan. Up the weights if you need to! Then followed Jillian Michael’s yoga video below. It’s a great stretch while working the muscles.

Day Fifteen ~ Vegan Challenge

Day 15 For breakfast I opted for toast with peanut butter and banana slices and lunch was left over stir fry. The black bean veggie burgers were so good I had to make them again.

For exercise I did the second day of the Five Day Workout Plan.  Afterwards I made sure to have another good […]
