So far so good!
I’ve been sticking with the vegan choices and trying hard to stay low-calorie. The chip bag still calls me late at night, but I’m trying to resist.
Another thing I need to work on is the the pre-planning of meals. My standby meals include:
A bowl of cereal with Almond milk
A sandwich with hummus, vegan cheese, veggies and sprouted bread
This week I’ve eaten out way too much! But I’ve managed to stick with vegan the whole time.
|Zen – BYOB|
We ate at Trudy’s for Ron’s birthday. Black bean tacos for me, with guacamole and TONS of chips and salsa. (Oh, and a margarita)
Ron and I also went to Zen Austin- Japanese Fast Food. It’s really yummy. I had the BYOB (Build Your Own Bowl) with tofu, greens, mushroom/veggie mix, noodles, and miso sauce.
Alyssa and I went to Subway and I had the Veggie sandwich.
Cydney and I met Leena and Angela at the Steeping Room in the Domain. We all had the Buddha Bowl with various sauces. It’s tofu, kale, lentils, brown rice and sweet potatoes.

So I’ve decided to really get serious about the exercise aspect. The dogs and I really need to walk daily…just to get in the habit. We all have pounds to shed! My plan is to do that every morning, before I really have time to think about other things I’d like to be doing. It’s a 30 minute walk out at the lake; it’s a nice trail and I go about 2 miles. My goal is to be able to do the whole lake by summer. It’s 3.3 miles. Currently, I just walk for 15 minutes, then turn around and walk back. I’ll work up my stamina and increase it soon.
