Thursday.........Seek and you shall find!

Food Journal:

Breakfast- large smoothie (water, banana, mixed frozen fruit)

Snack- fruit and nut bar

Lunch- Farmer's Market Salad (from Fresh and Easy) and 2 veggie spring rolls

Snack- grapes, a few multi grain chips

Dinner- nachos (homemade corn tortilla chips, vegan cheezy sauce, smart ground beef and tomatoes), granola bar

Workout Journal:

4 mile run & 1/2 mile walk (cool down)
200 crunches (varied upper and lower abs)

I was super sleepy again today. When I got home I was not in a good mood much less in the mood to work out. I was really in a funk and I was sluggish but I made myself workout.

The reason I was in a bad mood was because I feel a little stressed and disappointed in myself. I know I have to train and I have been slacking off big time. By the time I get home I have to cook and get things ready for the next day. When I am done I am tired and it is too late to run outside alone.

So I was mad because I feel like I don't have time to train. I am afraid to run during the night. I tried setting my alarm at 5am to go running but it is still dark too. Tonight I said "screw it....I am going anyways". I left my house at 8:30pm and hit the road.

I usually feel safer running inside my complex but I am getting bored and needed to motivate myself again. I know the only way to do this is to break the monotony and accomplish something different.

I took the risk and ran around my neighborhood. I just prayed and envisioned myself running with a group of angels protecting me. I know it sounds hokie but that is what I did and I managed to run 4 miles.

I could have ran more but it was getting late and I had to get home. I managed to run it in about 45 minutes. I was pretty proud of myself and I definitely found my motivation again.

Now I just need to be consistent and tighten up my eating again. I weighed myself on a digital scale today during lunch and I seem to have gained about 5 lbs in about 1 month. I need to snip that in the bud right away.

Well I am back on track and ready to ROCK it out!!!!

Wednesday............HELP....I am falling and I can't get up!

Food Journal:

Breakfast- piece of toast w/ Tofutti cream cheese, smoothie (water, banana, mixed frozen fruit)

Lunch- Farmers Market Salad w/ lemon hummus vinegarette, 2 veggie spring rolls

Snack- grapes

1/2 bag of peanut M&M's (I shared a king size bag with Jazzy. I was really craving these these all day. I let myself eat them without feeling guilty. They are a naughty food but what the heck I ate them anyways;)

Dinner- Nachos (homemade corn tortilla chips, vegan cheezy sauce, smart ground beef, guacamole, tomatoes)

Workout Journal:
Banish Fat Boost Metabolism DVD (I did this workout late at night because I had to workout. I was tired and lazy but I had to break through the wall. It was important to get this workout done no matter how I was feeling)

I am super tired. I know this is NO excuse but I am getting used to this work schedule. I get up early and by the time I get home I am super tired. I need to go to bed earlier and I need to find my motivation again.

I really want to go running but the burning desire is twindling. I can't let the fire go out. I have to re-ignite it and hit the road hardcore.

Tuesday- Unconsciously eating or emotional eating?

Food Journal:

Breakfast- 2 pieces of toast with tofutti

Lunch- smart ground beef sandwich (a smart patty on whole wheat bread, mustard), multigrain chips

Snack- another sandwich, apple slices

Dinner- cereal w/ soy milk, smart patty

Unconscious snacking: handful of few vegan chocolate chips, multigrain chips, saltine crackers.

No workout.

I have been eating waaaaaaaayyyyyy too much. Most of the time I am not even hungry. I know I have a lot on my mind and it is making me eat unconsciously. I haven't done this in a long time. I have to take control of myself.

I am also bummed because I haven't been working out like I need to be. I only have @ MONTHS left before the marathon and I am slacking majorly.

I kind of lost my motivation and I need to find it. I am so close to my goal. I can not give up now. I have to push through and get it done. HELP ME!!!!!!!!!!

I have been in California visiting family since Thursday. I attended a wedding on Friday night and they didn't have any healthy options for me to eat. I ate a little bit of veggies and some mashed potatoes but I am sure they had butter.

I did get a chance to eat some really yummy vegan food. In San Diego I got to eat at one of my favorite places...Wahoo's. I went there once before when I wasn't vegan to eat fish tacos. They had a lot of Vegan alternatives so I got to try them this time around. They did not disappoint, it was excellent. I will post pics when I get home.

Saturday evening I visited my cousin Iris and we went out to eat at another amazing restaurant. I will really miss all of these awesome restaurants and healthy vegan meals when I get to Vegas. I will have to learn how to make them on my own.

I really had an awesome weekend. I got to visit a lot of my family members that I haven't seen in 15+ years. I loved being able to re-connect. I will be going back next weekend and hope to eat some more yummy vegan food. :)

Healthy YUMMY vegan food is my new passion....lol! I feel like I am starring in my own version of Eat, Pray, Love.

I am so off track. I am really disappointed with myself. I only have a little more then 2 months to prepare for the marathon. I have not been eating well and I have not been working out like I should.

I am not going to promise anything on this blog anymore. I just need to do it and shut my mouth. I started my new job on Tuesday and I am sooooo tired when I get home. I am not used to getting up this early and staying up.

I also don't eat as much as I used to because I am not at home. Working keeps me from mindlessly eating. That is good but bad for my metabolism and energy level.

Today I didn't have time to eat lunch and I started shaking and feel weak. I think my sugar was dropping or something. I need to make sure I pack my lunch and snacks everyday.

I think I might just leave food at my mother in laws apartment because she lives in the apartment complex that I work at. It is easy for me to walk to her house and eat lunch there. That will probably work best for me.

Well I am really bloated and feeling really fat right now. I think I may have gained about 5 lbs in the last week because I am bloated, I am eating bad and I haven't worked out much.

Monday is a new day. I will be out of town until Sunday so I am not sure how much activity I will be able to do.

Sunday, September 19, 2010

Sunday

Food Journal:

Breakfast- smart sausage patty on whole wheat bread w/ ketchup, soy mayo, mustard and 3 pickle slices

Lunch- (Sweet Tomatoes) large salad, cup of veggie soup, 1 piece of sourdough bread, 1 coconut muffin, 1 chocolate muffin. water

Dinner- brown rice w/ ketchup

Workout Journal:

200 crunches
25 push ups

No cardio today.

I went shopping for new clothes today for my new job. I was so happy to finally fit in nice clothes. I had to buy everything new because the last time I had to wear professional clothes I was 25 lbs heavier.

It was a change of scenario for me because I usually have a really hard time finding clothes I am comfortable in but not this time. Even though I am not at my goal weight I am a lot more comfortable and confident with my body. It was a great feeling.

This little old lady commented when I walked out of the fitting room to show my mom my outfit. She said "oh you don't fit in those pants they are too big." I thought that was cute. They weren't really big they just had big legs because they were trouser pants. I don't like those too much because my legs are really thin and they make me look bigger than I am.

I did have a great time shopping and I am so grateful to God for being able to buy some new smaller clothes. :)

Saturday- New Season New Fruit

Food Journal:

Breakfast- breakfast sandwich (tofu scramble, hash browns, ketchup, smart bacon, and salsa on whole wheat toast.)

a few vegan chocolate chips

Snack- small apple (at a soccer game)

Dinner- (Sweet Tomatoes) large salad with lots of beans (no dressing...just lemon juice), 2 cups of veggie soup, 2 mango coconut muffins, water

Snack- a few multigrain chips w/ salsa, 1 piece of bread w/ tsp PB and small slice of banana.

No workout today. Rest day.

My sinus issues are finally gone. I still have mucus in my nose but my head is not hurting. I loaded up on my Juice Plus vitamins yesterday and I guess that took care of it. I hate taking medication of any kind so I usually try to get better naturally. I didn't even get to use the NetiPot I bought.

Today I went to a soccer game and it was so hot outside. It was 98 degrees with a light breeze and my one arm got toasted. I really hope it starts cooling down a lot faster or I won't be attending to many more of those games. Thank God we had umbrellas but my legs did not get covered.

I also have great news. I got a new full time job. It is funny because I received my last unemployment check and then I got a call on Friday about a job opportunity and I got hired today. I didn't even apply for this job but I know the people who own the apartment complex I will be working at.

They were aware that I have been unemployed for over a year now and asked if I wanted to work since they were hiring one more leasing agent. I said "ABSOLUTELY".

I have mentioned on here that I work for the Nevada Wellness Forum but I am not really getting paid for this work right now. The actual Wellness Center will not be opening possibly until the end of November but I need work NOW.

I am going to keep this job and try to manage both until The Wellness Forum job is making me enough money to live comfortably. Since it's a new business I don't want to put all my eggs in one basket yet. I can't do that as a single mom. Not too smart.

So I am absolutely ecstatic about this new blessing. I start working next Tuesday. My job is only 3 minutes away from my house and 5 minutes away from my daughters school. Too awesome.

I am going to have to figure out how I am going to keep up with my marathon training because it will also start getting darker earlier and I don't want to run outside by myself. I might have to get up extra early to keep up. I will see how it all works out.

So to explain the title of my post today:

This is a new season in my life where things are manifesting. New fruit is coming forth. I have sowed many seeds over the last couple of years and released some toxic things over the last couple of months. This has allowed the harvest to come forth in this new season of my life.

Last Sunday I went to church and God kept saying "NEW" to me. Then the sermon confirmed His words when they spoke about renewing our minds and letting go of the old things to make room for the new. Wow! I have lots of new things in my life right now and I am so grateful.

Thanks for sharing this journey with me. :) I am so excited to see what is next. Praise God!!!!

Friday- 5 hours of house cleaning..

Food Journal:

Breakfast- smart bacon sandwich (whole wheat bread, smart bacon, ketchup, soy mayo, mustard and pickles.....yummy)

Snack- banana, orange, a few crackers, a few almonds (over a 5 hr period)

Snack- multigrain chips w/ salsa, 3 cc cookies

Dinner- hash browns w/ ketchup, Gimme Lean sausage patty, asparagus

No workout today.

I am dealing with a sinus headache on one sideo of my face. My brain feels like it's going to fall out of my right ear. My face is sore too along my cheekbone.

I went to my friends today to clean her house. She has been really busy and was going to post an ad on Craigs List to get her house cleaned so I did it. It wasn't very dirty but the house is pretty big (5 bedroom, 4 bath, 2 story, tile floors) so it took me a while to finish. She also has 4 young children under the age of 10 so it definitely needed some TLC.

My body is tired so I decided to take off today and rest. I also have a headache so I am taking it easy this evening. I bought a Neti Pot to cleanse my sinuses. Hopefully it helps and gives me some relief.

I feel really fat today since my YKW should be coming soon. I hate feeling like this....yucky. Maybe this is why I have been eating lots of cookies. :))))) SURE!!!

30 minutes bike (Level 8- varying levels workout)

I still have a cold but I am fighting it off with my workouts. I can not surrender to this cold. My head hurts when I bend over and my nose is constantly running but I have to workout. I ate well today too so I am proud of myself.

I am going to run a 5K for Childhood Cancer next month which should be exciting. I have to experience running in a crowd. I don't want the marathon to be my first experience I have. :)

I know the 5k will be a piece of cake. I always wanted to run one but never had the stamina to do it. I am SO HAPPY to say I can do it with no problem now. YAY FOR ME!!

Wednesday, September 15, 2010

Wednesday- I am finally back!!!!!!! Yay!

Food Journal:

Breakfast- 1/2 c hash browns w/ 1 tofurkey link. 1/2 cup of a smoothie (water, banana, strawberries, blueberries)

Lunch- homemade veggie soup

Dessert- 1 slice of wheat bread, 1/2 tsp of peanut butter, 1/3 sliced banana, 1 sliced strawberry. :)))) makes me smile!!!

Dinner- 1/2 black bean patty w/ ketchup and pickles, 3 tsp of macaroni salad I made from scratch.

3 mini homemade chocolate chip cookies (brown rice flour, u/s applesauce, banana, vanilla, baking powder, sea salt, and vegan chocolate chips)

I didn't bake all the cookie dough because I was afraid I would eat them. That time of the month is lurking and it would be too tempting. I baked 1 1/2 dozen and refrigerated the rest of the dough.

Post run meal- black bean patty w/ 2 slices of whole wheat bread, ketchup, mustard and pickles.

Lots and lots of water.

Workout Journal:

1st workout- Resistance Training (Turbo Sculpt) including abs
The video suggests that women use 3-5 lbs weights and that men use 8-10 lbs weights. Ummmm.....I used 15 and 17.5 lb weights. Let me tell you that my arms are shaking right now.

This video is a full body circuit training workout but my arms felt it the most. Doing several bicep curls (about 50+) at one time with 17.5 lb weights is pretty intense. At least for me it is. I was sweating like a little piggy...LOL! Not to mention that you are also doing squats and lunges while doing the bicep curls. Yep that will get the heart pumping and sweat rolling. :0)

I want some ripped arms so I can't complain. No pain No gain...right? :)

2nd workout- 5 mile run (making up for lost time and miles:)

I started off with a goal of running only 3 miles but at a quick speed. After the first 1/2 mile my chest started burning and I thought I would only be able to run 2 miles. Then my adrenaline and fighting spirit kicked in and each time I completed a mile I challenged myself to do one more. I completed 5 strong miles in 1 hr and 20 minutes. Not bad for being congested.


Today was an awesome day. I feel good and hope to keep this tempo up.

NO Jelly......NO problem

I wanted to share my new favorite snack and dessert. It may not be new to everyone but it's new to me.

I ran out of healthy sugar free jelly and I wanted something sweet so I took a piece of wheat bread, spread a tsp of peanut butter (no sugar, no salt added), and added sliced banana and strawberries on top. OMG! It was sooooooo yummy.

You know that is my word "YUMMY"....lol...but it really was good. I have to becareful to not eat this all the time. Since I am still trying to shed 20 more pounds I have to limit my consumption of peanut butter.

I can stand to eat a tsp maybe 2 days a week so I will let this be my healthy treat....OKAY!?!?!?!

Try it and let me know what you think.

Monday/ Tuesday - Fighting to comeback!

Monday I woke up and had a stuffy nose. I almost made an excuse to not workout but I couldn't do it. I CAN not let this cold get me to sit down another week. I have been pretty good about not getting sick but I think the lack of sleep I have been getting is making it easier for me to catch something.

I have not been eating a lot either which might be another reason and my immune system was also trying to fight off my stomach issue last week. What ever it is I don't like it.

I didn't sit down though. I finally went for a run...stuffy nose and all. I was not able to run as much as before because my body was a little weak from the stomach illness I had. Remember I didn't' keep too much in my tummy during that time.

Food Journal:

No sure everything I ate. I am so sorry for not keeping up with this. I promise to get it together.

I do know I ate a peanut butter sandwich w/ fresh strawberries in it. Oh yay it was good. I didn't have jelly so I decided to just cut up some fruit instead. I actually like it better this way.

Workout Journal:

3 mile run

I attended a Lunch and Learn with the Nevada Wellness Forum. Lunch was so yummy and I got some new recipes to incorporate into my menu at home. I was stuffed to the max after this YUMMALICIOUS meal. I love being plant strong. It is so satisfying and yummy. Oh and I can eat eat eat and not feel guilty...lol!

Dinner- 2 black bean patties w/ 1/2 lavash bread and salsa

Workout Journal:

No workout. I was gone all day with work and didn't get home until 8pm. Then I had to make sure my daughter was ready for the next day of school. I also had to make sure I went to get early because I had to get up the next morning at 4am to take my brother to work. UGH!

Saturday/ Sunday- Feeling Better :).....BUT!!!!!!

My tummy is finally feeling better. I am going to rest this weekend so that I am 100% ready and strong for my training on Monday. Like I have said before I have less than 3 months left before the marathon. I know I will be prepared for it but I am a little nervous. I really want to complete it without stopping. I know I can walk if I get tired but I don't want to. I need to finish strong because it is my goal. I know the energy of the event and my adrenaline will fuel me but I have to still train and be prepared. I am a very strong minded person so once I have my mind made up to fulfill something I follow through with it. That makes me confident in my ability to complete it the way I want to.

Food Journal:

Breakfast- 2 pieces of toast w/ Earth Balance, bowl of Honey O's w/ soy milk

Ginger ale

Lunch- green chili curry tofu w/ harvest blend grains

Dinner- green chili curry tofu w/ grains

My little nephew was visiting from California and spent the night at my house. He is 18 months old and such a lovely baby. I really enjoyed spending time with him. I didn't sleep much which ran my body down further and I woke up with a cold. :(

What the heck is going on? I tell you "when it rains it pours"...lol!

Thursday/ Friday- Revenge of the Chili Dog

SOOOOO I have been really sick the last couple of days. I haven't thrown up but I have not been able to keep anything in my stomach. I am constantly running to the bathroom. I have been drinking lots of Hansen Natural Cane Soda Ginger Ale. It really helps calm my stomach down.

I can't remember everything I ate but most of it found it's way out of me pretty quickly. By Friday I am able to eat a little more without feeling so much stomach cramping but I am still not 100%. The worst part of this experience is that I can not workout. I hate it. I will be back by Monday with a vengeance.

Today I attended an Open Forum and lunch with The Nevada Wellness Forum (my new employer) and I learned a lot of crazy things. Some of which made me a little scared. I have to remember that God is still in control even though a lot of the info I heard makes you wonder where the world is going.

We talked about GMO foods. That stands for Genetically Modified Organisms. For those that are not familiar with this it is like cloning. It is pretty scary because it is extremely dangerous for the human body. When you change the genetic structure of an organism it creates an imbalance that is very harmful.

Many farmers are being forced to produce GMO crops. It is so bad that many have actually committed suicide. What many consumers fail to realize is that the food industry is driven by greed. If they can make more money by producing more crops then they are happy. They don't care about who they are affecting. They only care about their bottom line.

What we don't realize is that many of the products we buy and consume on a daily basis contain GMO ingredients. Grains, beans, veggies, fruits, soy and other products are all included in this production.

A study was conducted several years ago that showed the affects of GMO products. In the study 3 potatoes and 3 rats were used. One potato was GMO and injected with Roundup (a pesticide), another was non GMO and in it's natural state, the other was sprayed with Roundup and was non GMO as well.

Each rat was assigned to a specific potato and observed. The rat that ate the Non GMO potato with out Roundup was fine. The one that ate the Non GMO potato sprayed with Roundup was also ok. The rat that ate the GMO potato was in bad shape. It's brain shrunk and it's reproductive system no longer functioned. After a few days that rat also passed away.

The Roundup was used to show that although pesticides are harmful they are not as detrimental as GMO foods.

It is imperative that we become educated consumers. We must be our own advocates and make sure that we know what we are purchasing. We vote for these GMO products to continue contaminating our food industry when we buy them. Let take a stand and give our children the best future they can have. Note that many side affects do not show up until later generations.

Our generation is definitely more ill than early generations. The best thing we can do is give our children a future full of hope.

Tuesday/ Wednesday- Off Track

Tuesday

Food Journal:

Breakfast- 2 pieces of toast w/ avocado

Lunch- (Sweet Tomatoes) big salad w/ lemon, 2 bowls of soup, small cup of apple crisp.

The apple crisp made me feel really sick. Since I try my hardest to stay away from refined sugar when I do eat it I can feel it. My body responds with a vengeance...lol!

tater tots w/ ketchup and mustard

No workout. I was not home all day. I didn't get home until after 8pm and I was sooooo sleepy. I am disappointed because I have not been working out like I am supposed to be doing at this point. I have less then 3 months until the marathon. I can not play games any longer. I MUST get back on track!!!!

vegan chili dog (here is where it turned REALLY bad!)

So this last chili dog had it's revenge on me. I got so extremely sick. I think what happen was that the veggie hot dog sat out for a few hours and then I ate it. That must have given it time to grow some evil bacteria that wrecked havoc on my stomach.

I had plans to go running this evening but I was so sick I couldn't even get up. I was running to the bathroom every couple of minutes. WOW! I never want to see another chili dog again. Even the smell of it made me sick.
