Well this is day one and I'll be chatting with my coach Alli B soon. I am hoping she can give me the kick I need to get get my act together! :)

So Day 1....

My breakfast was a hearty dose of puffy pancakes from Post Punk Kitchen.

Lunch was a seitan pastrami sandwich.

I will be doing 30 minutes of elliptical tonight.

My plan for this month is to decrease the junk food in my diet and work out regularly....cardio and weights. My goal is to tone up and drop some weight.....10 pounds would be a good start.

Day 2 started off with leftover pancakes and an orange. Oh and coffee of course!

Snack was a quinoa salad.

Lunch was a tofu meatball sandwich and a fruit salad.

Work out was 30 minutes of elliptical.

Dinner was a big salad.

I am chugging water like crazy too.

I spoke to AlliB and got a quick meal plan going. She confirmed that my goals were realistic and I like her "let's get down to business" attitude! I need to focus on whole foods (especially raw) and cut my carbs at night. (Good thing I had my salad tonight!) I will push for raw foods as much as possible. I often feel better on raw anyways.

I feel good after day 2 considering I haven't worked out in ages. I can feel a little burn in my legs and arms..so I am happy with that.

Hi Alli and all,

Here is my day so far...

Breakfast
Flax cereal with 1 banana and almond milk
Coffee with soy milk

Snack 1
15 almonds

Lunch
1 head of romaine with cucumbers and tomatoes with a balsamic dressing topped with TVP bacon bits

Snack 2
3 Clementines

Dinner
Greens, peas and other frozen veggies with marinara and tofu meatballs.

For my workout, I am planning elliptical and some more arm workouts. I might throw in a little yoga to stretch out my lower back. I am feeling a lil sore.
