Yea, Karen is totally right. I used to be a big cheese fan, ate it with everything I could. After going vegan, it was a tough transition. I never gave in, which made it easier to pass quickly, but I really missed it. At the time, we didn't even have any decent vegan brands lol, they all had the consistency of rubber & didn't taste too swell.

Now when I smell cheese, I gag. I smell the animal in it, if that makes any sense. Like, it smells like a barn lol.

Thankfully, vegans today have Daiya & Blut Island Sheese <3

FRIDAY JAN. 13

meal 1: last bowl of my barley soup. it's deliciously healthy!
meal 2: an avacado egg roll and some rice and beans.. I think
meal 3: made some awesome vegan nachos with the last of my almond cheese. had onions, green and black olives plus the cheese.

dessert: 4 cherry bombs ( energy drink and a shot of cherry vodka ) and 5 beers

did two sets of my workout rotation and then bashed my elbow on a car door. Pushups became more difficult after that, managed 10, but I expect it to heal up quickly once I re-hydrate in the morning.

It makes perfect sense. I haven't eaten any cheese in over a month, just made cheese-less pizza instead lol. The first attempt at making my own cheese left something to be desired. The 2nd attempt with the nachos was much, much better. Almonds made for some nice flavor.

Thank you for the support, I appreciate it! Haven't had Daiya or Blut yet, but I am sure I'll try it sometime : )

You're very welcome & I need your cheese recipe lol ;)

Daiya & Sheese can be pricey, if you can even get the latter, but they are quite nice to have on special occasion at least =)

almonds (soaked in water for a bit then peeled ) , lemon juice, garlic powder, salt, nutritional yeast flakes & water liquified in a blender, added some flour and heated it up in a pot until it was nacho cheesey thick. There are other more complicated recipes for cheese I found that involved leaving things overnight and ingredients I had never heard of, but this works for me for now!

You are most welcome. Let me know if you try to make your own cheesy recipe and how it turns out. I didn't follow the measurements exactly (I would give them if I remembered) and seasoned it to taste when I made mine.

SATURDAY JAN 14TH

meal 1: almonds, a few carrots and an apple. Ran out of coffee and was forced to go caffeine-less. Not a bad thing but I still frowned and wrinkled my brow in dismay momentarily.

meal 2: mushroom sammich, basically half a baked portabella shroom on sourdough with wasabi and hummus.

meal 3: avacado gyoza, steamed. made the filling with onions, garlic, soy sauce, the other half of the shroom, butternut squash, spinach, a touch of rice vinegar and sesame oil, ginger and pepper. Wrappers were flour and water.. I used white flour, it handles better for this sort of thing. I chopped the veggies with my right arm and kneaded the dough with my left arm for an even cookout session.

Today was pretty active, I jogged my quota with an additional squirming 30 lbs strapped to my back. I found 30lbs gets very heavy, very quickly while running.

Had an equally nice workout quota, added in some butterflies, curls, my now standard grip/forearm warm-up and some extra cardio. I think my gluts will be sore tommorrow. I do not remember the last time I actually felt the burn on my butt cheeks.

THURSDAY JAN 19

Been busy and tired from sickness, just passed out instead of posting yesterday. I did some dumbell reps and pushups/situps. I'm doing about 20 pushups per rep now instead of 10, and 30 situps. Walked around disneyland today with my 3 year old as well.

meal 1: apple and banana
meal 2: apple and barley veggie salad
meal 3: seitan and rice in veggies, extra spicy

Thank you :) . I will leave that judgement to him when he's older, hopefully he will hate me less than I hate mine! :lol:

I am recovering, still sniffly and sneezy and headachy, but nothing I can't exercise through. The challenge pumps me up more and gets me passionate and makes me try harder.
