Today's a pretty big day for me. I have to read 1/2 a book and write a 750-word precis on it...all in one day. Possible? I think so--however, this means that I won't be doing any exercise tonight. Instead, I'll be a little more stringent with my food intake and most of all...intensely focused on school!

I do like it when my mind is busy because I don't dwell on negative aspects of myself. I've had trouble with this ever since I turned 13. "Do my thighs look fat? Is my belly protruding? Am I eating too much?" ...and on and on it goes. This is terribly destructive thinking for a young teenager and now, at 19 (nearly 20) I'm trying to turn that around. In the next few months, I'll be doing reading on positive thinking techniques and focusing on my good attributes rather than my "bad" attributes. Perhaps I'll join a yoga class? We'll see...

Meal 1: "Green smoothie": celery, spinach, wheatgrass, 1/4 avocado, 1/2 banana, 1/8 green pepper, 1 small lime, 3/4 apple
Meal 2: Small Kung Pao, rice, tofu, veggie and spicy sauce "bowl" and 1 tall ristretto soy latte (Mom's treat :D)
Meal 3: "Green smoothie": celery, spinach, wheatgrass, 1/4 avocado, 1/2 banana, 1 small lime, 1 small carrot, 1/4 apple, tsp flaxseed and a green salad w/ olive oil and garlic vinaigrette

Snacks: organic tostitos (blue corn) with homemade hummus

I felt really awake and energized after the first smoothie! I wasn't really sure what to expect, but it tasted surprisingly good. Let's hope that they all taste this good. I think tomorrow I'll try putting spirulina in my smoothie...could be interesting!

Workout: OFF

I'm quickly realizing the difficulty of waking up early and making smoothies when you're trying not to wake the whole house up in the morning. This morning I was going to make a green smoothie as it worked so well the previous day BUT my roomate, who's usually away at work by morning, was sleeping. I did not wish to wake him with my blender as it is very, very LOUD. So I opted for raisin bran bread with pb. That breakfast just didn't give me the kick I needed for class. I think from now on, I'll prepare my smoothies at night so I can drink them first thing in the morning without disturbing anyone. *sigh* Live and learn, live and learn...

Meal 1: 2 pieces organic raisin bran bread w/ tsp vegan butter and 1 tbsp peanut butter
Meal 2: Eden Deluxe Hot Patty (vegan, of course) from Planet Organic...it kind of looks like a pizza pocket filled with TVP, vegetables and flaxseed! and a live food "goddess" bar.
Meal 3: Organic homemade granola bar and celery w/ hummus
Meal 4: Sweet and salty popcorn

Snack: 1/2 a tall ristretto soy latte, sobe green tea

Workout:

**I must be losing my interest in coffee because I couldn't even finish it this morning! Instead I opted for water which is much healthier in any case! ;)

Thank you! I certainly need all the luck I can get! My results will all come back to me next week...so I'll get to see if I did as well on my quiz/midterm/paper as I think I did. Maybe the green smoothies will give me the energy to get through massive amounts of studying, reading and writing for next week! :lol:

Tonight's the night of the Cradle of Filth, Satyricon and Septic Flesh. In other words... tonight is a night of PURE METAL. Much headbanging, screaming and prepping hair (not my own, may I add) shall be done. Male metal fans almost take more prep time than the females... jeez. In any case, that's what I'll be doing. No workouts here, unless you count fending off 300 lbs guys whilst trying to get to front of the crowd . ;)

Meal 1: 2 pieces yeast free raisin bran bread w/ 1 tbsp pb and banana
Meal 2: 1 Eden Jamaican Patty (vegan... see Friday post for description) and a green smoothie
Meal 3: 1 veggie rice bowl. White rice, 2 pc of tofu, bean sprouts, cucumber, carrots and teriyaki sauce.

Workout: off.

Today is a lazy day. It was a pretty intense concert last night and today I'll probably take it easy. May do workout today, but then I may not...we'll see how the day plays out.

Meal 1 (12:00 pm): 1 veggie breakfast bagel (w/ tomato, soy bacon, avocado, onion, tofu) and 3/4 c. hashbrowns (which looked more like diced potatoes, but I digress)
Meal 2 (4ish pm): green smoothie (mint leaves, wheatgrass, celery, 1 kiwi, 1/4 c. carrot juice, kale, a few blueberries) and an apple.
Meal 3: banana w/ 1 tbsp pb, celery w/ fresh hummus
Meal 4: glass of carrot juice

Workout: Ripped! To the core! (heavier lifting with high reps, 1 hour)
