AHHH! My office is crazy, but it serves me well.

Apparently they got an edible arrangement they have in the kitchen to share. It's made up of fruit and...KALE

Someone actually watched me take off the kale, chop up the strawberries for a salad and was like...what is that stuff? I didn't know it was edible.

It's KALE. You poor, sorry, deprived people. D:

Enjoying my apple, strawberry, and kale salad with lite balsamic vinaigrette. OM NOM NOM

Yeah that stuff is great. Way too dangerous to keep in the house! :D

You doing any P90X2 lately? Following their vegan meal plan?

I'm prepping for P90X2! Doing the plus version to get myself in good shape. But their meal plan is pretty damned sweet. :)

I am CONSTANTLY getting comments on how healthy my food looks, total strangers from the different companies on my floor stop, stare, and ooh and ahh. It's like they've never seen people eat healthy food.

I prepare it fresh, so they watch me chop up the cucumbers, add the kale...it's like they've never seen real food before. :lol:

Food log so far:

Breakfast: 1 scoop chocolate Vega Whole Meal Optimizer, 1 scoop chocolate Sunwarrior warrior protein, one small banana, 1 cup mint chocolate soy milk in a blender with ice.

Snack: 1 toasted Ezekiel bread with natural PB.

Lunch: the leaning tower of baby spinach, kale, alfalfa sprouts, sunflower seeds, chia seeds, roasted salted pepita seeds, 1/2 avocado, oil free hummus, diced cucumbers, and Annie Organic's Goddess dressing.

Snack: 1/2 grapefruit, 1 Lulu's raw chocolate and almond bar.

Given it's almost Christmas when I will be chowing down on vegan eggplant parm (my guily pleasure made with Daiya cheese OM NOM NOM) I am tempted to do something that's a treat tonight but don't want to overdo it. Hm.

Dinner: went with Tofurky hickory smoked "turkey" with homemade garlic aioli with baby spinach on toasted slices of Ezekiel bread.

Had four double chocolate chip cookies I made. They were small. And I had to test to make sure they were okay for my relatives to consume.... :oops:

Workouts:

Morning: Tony's One on One Fountain of Youth yoga. I love it, 45 min of P90X yoga versus 90. <3

Okay! I have some progress pics. The changes are subtle, it's only been a little over a month of P90X plus I was sick for two weeks. But I can see a diff:

After:

After:

My arms are definitely more toned. Those are honestly the hardest for me to tone along with my glutes, so the fact that there's progress makes me want to do the happy dance. I'm also seeing the ab definition again, something I was starting to lose after I lost the 24 or so pounds.

I'll take another set in a month's time.

So on Saturday before I left, I did Kenpo Cardio Plus. Great workout!! I even ate healthy food along the way, too.

And I got there and found out the huge amounts of food my mom had made for me? She had left it at home. All I had to eat while I was there were bagels, pasta, the double chocolate chip cookies I made, and some veggie lentil soup. Oh yeah, and some small oranges and cucumbers.

That's it. D:

Naturally, not enough. So I ate a few more cookies than planned, but the bagels and pasta killed me. I woke up on Sunday night in the middle of the night in amazing quantities of stomach pain. Two days in a row of wheat products did me in.

I spent my day today eating at the Organic Garden in Beverly, all raw organic food, 99% vegan. I eat of the 99%. :)

I am also freakin' EXHAUSTED, and my head is pounding. I'm guessing 60% of it is dehydration and the rest is just my body feeling amazing amounts of ick after eating certain foods and types of foods after subjecting it to all of that healthy goodness it loved so much. Also, the six hour car ride yesterday killed me. I'm going to do a morning workout tomorrow, plus an evening if I can manage it.

Good news, though: I didn't eat to the point where I was full or worse, I ate to the point of comfort. I've long found that if you indulge, indulging to excess will not help.
