I was very apprehensive about eating vegan today, but I made it work! Did you know that Life cereal is vegan? I had no idea, but I was happily surprised this morning while I was eating it and googling it at the same time! I ate it with some soymilk and half of that nasty looking banana.
I had a glorious tempo run and resistance training session including abs today! I felt like crap when I woke up, but headed to the gym anyway and was so happy that I did! I warmed up for a mile, then ran at a little faster pace than my marathon pace. I don’t like running fast, but I just accepted that it was going to be uncomfortable for the next 3 miles, and it went a lot faster after that! Then, I cooled down for about a mile and a half. When I got home, I was starving!! I drank this Green Monster down fast!!
- 2 1/2 cups spinach
- handful of blackberries
- 1 cup vanilla soymilk
- 1 banana
Yum! So far, so good on the vegan front…
For lunch: Spicy veggie soup containing vegan macaroni
with hummus toast and green tea with NO HONEY. The tea was okay without the honey, but I think that it tastes better with it! Did you also know that most bread from Rudi’s organic is vegan? I was also pleasantly surprised about that too!
For my snack before spin class tonight, I had a piece of toast with pb.
I think that I had a fever before I went to class, but I went anyway. Who else was going to teach the class? I felt a little weak during the class, but it still went well. I actually had 12 people tonight instead of the usually 6. It was exciting! After the class, I felt really weak and hot. I think that I’m getting sick!!! Ahhhh!!
We made lemon stir fry and jasmine rice for dinner. Steve got to put chicken on top of his stir fry, and I didn’t!
For dessert: I could only eat half of this. It was way rich!
Well, overall my vegan day wasn’t that bad at all. It took some creativity and a little bit of planning on my part, but it was still good. Now, I need to figure out what I’m eating tomorrow! 3 More days until I can have cheese!
I’m off to bed because I’ve got to teach another spin class at 7am tomorrow!
