Week 1 is officially over! That wasn't so bad! Although I have to come clean, today I had a little more to eat in the healthy snack category. When making zucchini and cashew soup for lunch, I got a little snacky with the extra cashews. And I had a piece of bread with natural peanut butter on it with my yogurt snack in the afternoon, so a couple extra calories. I took the dog on a mile run in the morning, and did some very light resistance training and push-ups in the morning. I just had to move around! Maybe that is why I felt I needed to eat more.
As I'm looking at the next two weeks, I realize working out will not be needed, its a super high vegetable diet, with not a ton of protein. I will probably be having Vegan Shakeology once a day for a slight protein boost, but this will certainly be a big change for me. Tomorrow I will wrap up my feelings about week 1 and looking forward to week two!
Today I had oatmeal with fruit for breakfast, zucchini/cashew soup for lunch, and baked tempeh with green beans and brown rice for dinner. It was actually pretty easy to prepare today. Tomorrow I am taking the day off to reset my kitchen for phase II and get ready! The middle school show I am playing at is going up this weekend, so time will be kind of tough until Monday. That's about it for today! More tomorrow!
