Day 13 was another busy day, with choir rehearsals in the evening.  Breakfast was a nice change from fruit, I had mashed chickpeas, steamed kale, and 1/2 an avocado.  It was very filling and easy to prepare! Lunch had to be a Whole Foods run today, but I got a huge salad and used homemade dressing.  I had a big Shakeology with lots of berries, my first serving of fruit of the day, for dinner.  Choir rehearsals went from 6-9 and when I came home I snacked on a couple raw carrots and that rounded out the day.  There was a roasted squash recipe that looked like a lot of work and not my cup of tea, so I subbed Shakeology this time.  Beachbody CEO Carl Daikeler confirmed with me via a twitter conversation that subbing meals with Shakeology is completely acceptable - I imagine in the final week I will have to a couple times as well.

My daily struggles are that I want coffee, again not out of chemical dependance, but just because I enjoy drinking it, and that I wish I could eat meat again.  Fortunately that is in my head, as my body is telling me I'm quite full.  Probably for the first time in a while, my body is full of the nutrients it needs to get through the day!
