Snooping around someone’s life is fun right? I’m sure I’m not the only one that loves the idea of looking around someone’s house during open houses or even thinks of taking a sneak peek inside a person’s fridge. You know you want to too! I’m not one to visit a friend and peek inside a medicine cabinet without a reason (I’m quite a whimp when it comes to the rules) but when someone offers… So that’s what these WIAW offer – a free invitation into my vegan life. I’m not 100% healthy with meals but believe a happy medium is a good place for my meals. My meal plans are based around incredibly balanced entrees and then a fun dessert. If I’m about to embark on an unhealthy entrée I’ll forgo the dessert and go for a fruit or herbal tea for a late night snack. By late night I mean 7pm; I’m so not a late night person. Moderation is always key, never subtraction.
Breakfast: Oatmeal with molasses, chiaseeds and 4 dried prunes (You won’t miss the missing sugar!)
Snack: 2 oranges (which I forgot to eat until lunch)
Lunch: Amazing Kale Salad with lentils
Snack: 1 orange after lunch
Snack 2: 1 small gala apple with ½ tbsp peanut butter (love PB!!) before run (tea I didn’t drink)
Snack 3: Small Slice of homemade baguette fresh from oven (strange looking this time because it’s a new oven that doesn’t get as hot as it should…)
Dinner: Amazing kale salad with lentils and a pickle
Snack: Homemade Vegan gingersnap (recipe from Vegan Cookies Invade the Cookie Jar) and chocolate
Notice the double snack in the afternoon? Normally I don’t have so many snacks but I have kicked up my workout routine. I’m not sure if I’ve mentioned I started the Tone It Up Bikini Babes plan for this spring season. I’m not on the paid meal plan but I do love the idea of the coordinated exercise plans. If you haven’t seen or signed up for the plan yourself go here and check it out. I have no connection with the Tone It Up girls but I do love the idea of connecting women together to get healthier through working out. The free plan has a nice integrated plan that includes (all for free) YouTube videos, printout workouts, inspirational printout monthly calendars, and a community for motivation. If you are looking for inspiration check it out and have some fun. Here’s my workout right for the day:
Morning Bootycall: TIU stretch and toning (after furry baby was finished)
Mid-morning: 1.4 mi walk with pup 31 mins
Mid-morning 2: TIU Cocktail Dress Workout & TIU Sunset Workout
Evening: 5k Run with DH 34 mins & .65 mi walk for cooldown after run 15 mins (note photo)
Anyone else doing the TIU Bikini Babes?
