This probably wasn't the best day for food. I ate lots of processed stuff today. But once it's gone I can replace it with fresh veggies and more whole foods.

Breakfast: 2 slices of leftover pizza
Lunch: Boca burger
Dinner: 2 burritos, banana protein shake

Exercise: Nothing that can really count as exercise today.

Today was a VERY busy day! My brother-in-law came over with his tiller! My friend Stuart and I planted a garden in the back yard. I can't wait for the veggies to start growing! It will be so cool to have fresh produce whenever I want it! It's pretty big too! We planted watermelon, cantaloupe, spinach mustard, lettuce, bell peppers, jalapeno peppers, broccoli, tomatoes, yellow squash, turnips, and zucchini. Since I've never had a garden here before I don't know what will grow so we planted a wide variety. I also planted some gladiolus bulbs in the front of my house yesterday. It was a physically exhausting day, but it is well worth it! :)

Breakfast: 2 veggie dogs, soy milk
Lunch: leftover pizza
Dinner: tomato soup

Exercise: 5 hours of major gardening!

Happy Memorial Day to you all. It rained last night so I am super glad we got the garden planted when we did! I am a little sore from all the gardening yesterday. I expected that though. :)

Breakfast: 2 veggie dogs, banana protein shake
Lunch: 2 slices of vegan pizza, 1 slice of "cheese"cake (from the "Vegan Planet" cookbook. Try it sometime! It's fantastic! My friend makes it with Stevia instead of sugar so it's really not too bad for you!)
Dinner: tomato soup, 1 slice of "cheese"cake

Exercise: was still sore from digging the garden, so I relaxed today

The garden sounds cool - that will be awesome to have fresh produce from your yard! I had no idea watermelon and cantaloupe could grow in ND, neat! The ones we get in the store are usually from Mexico or California.

I know folks who have been able to grow watermelon up here. Don't know about the cantaloupe. We'll just have to see how it goes. :) I am super excited about it too! I should take pics and post them that will show the garden's progress.

That is awesome about the garden. My dad used to plant one when I was younger and it was sweet. They are a lot of work though but all of those home grown goodies will be worth it.

Exercise: Since it was my final day of vacation, I slacked and didn't do anything except spend time with my family.
