So what did you think of the casserole? Did you spice it up a bit or follow the recipe? Good luck with the pushups. Remember it will take awhile for the body to adjust to doing that much pushup work.

I followed the recipe. It was alright. I didn't think it was as amazing as everyone seems to say it is, but on the other hand it wasn't bad either. I honestly don't know if I would make it again. Maybe. I think it would be good with some nutritional yeast in there. But I think EVERYTHING would be better with nutritional yeast. :)

That is why I asked if you followed the recipe or spiced it up because it is def bland in my opinion. My husband really likes it that way but I think it could use some more flavor.

Thursday, May 21st:

Weights: None

Cardio: It's still freezing here so I went to the gym for my cardio. I did 15 min. on the treadmill and 15 min. on the bike followed by stretching. Not the most intense workout. My right ankle is bothering me a little bit...not sure what I did to it.

I have a 60 min. yoga class tonight.

Diet:
Pre-workout: banana
Post-workout: oatmeal with blueberries, protein powder, flax, and a bit of maple syrup
Lunch: leftover casserole, leftover corn, pear
Supper: eggplant paprikash with tofu, roasted cauliflower
Snack: mango

Cals 1560
Fat (g) 31.1
Carbs (g) 261.8
Prot (g) 86.4

I haven't been eating enough greens/salad the last couple of days. Usually that's what I have for lunch but I've been eating leftovers instead. Need to get back on that.

Good luck with your ankle. maybe some ice? I usually put some of the vegan parm on the casserole. Sorry to hear it is still cold there. It is finally nice here but I am stuck in bed not even enjoying it.

You will be out there soon enough!

The vegan parm is a good idea. I usually have my own mix made up (from Veganomicon I think?) but I'm out right now.

There's one in the Uncheese cookbook I've been meaning to try.

I always have to put it on my serving separately because my fiance is allergic to nuts. They can be in the house, he just can't have any. But he would rather use real parmesan anyway so it's no big deal really.

One of my best friends wants to get the Uncheese Cookbook. I really hope he does so I can check out some of the recipes!

You're doing great hon! Keep it up! I love reading about other people's success! :)

My experience with the Uncheese cookbook is recipes are either REALLY good or REALLY bad...no in between! But I've only made about 15 or so things out of there. If you do get a chance to check it out I would recommend the smoked crock cheez, gee whiz spread, the French onion soup gruyere, the chedda fondue, baked stuffed shells, and the gooey grilled cheez.

Cardio: None

Diet:
Pre-workout: rice cake
Post-workout: rice cakes, protein powder and soy milk
Snack: pear
Lunch: leftover paprikash, salad with tofu and dressing, 3 dates
Snack: 2 dates
Supper: baked chimichanga, pear for dessert
Snack: zucchini "chips"

Cals 1765
Fat (g) 34.8
Carbs (g) 312.1
Prot (g) 81.3

The dates were unplanned and put me above where my daily cals have been for the last couple of weeks (1500-1600). I am kind of proud of myself though. Previously when I was restricting food, if I ate something "off plan" I would go have a monster binge. Today I just kept eating like normal and told myself there was no way I should feel bad about it, as these cals are probably still under maintenance and it's all healthy food. Old habits are hard to kick but it seems like I am actually getting close to a normal healthy relationship with food. :)

Weight this morning was 147. I am down 0.5 lbs since last Saturday. Not much but I'll take it.

let's be glad we don't ever have to worry about that! Don't feel bad about the dates, they are a good for you fruit! Your diet looks good to me and the chimichanga sounds super yummy!
