I have to admit..that this morning..I was a bit down. It happens sometimes. I talked through it with a co-worker and I feel refreshed. Sometimes I get caught up on doing a whole bunch of things in my life..to make sure that I am ‘good enough’ for OTHER people. I end up over-working/over-committing/under-exercising/under-sleeping myself.
I AM GOOD ENOUGH!
Almond butter is like crack. I have to eat in moderation. 🙂 I haven’t been keeping up with my tri training. In fact this morning I went to the gym, sat in the parking lot and left. WHO DOES THAT? I just haven’t gotten my head around it all. However, I know..now..it’s because I am not taking care of me.
So..I whittled my middle. Can I just tell you that 10 minutes of doing something helps so much. It instantly lifted my mood. I then go ready and headed out to a Japanese restaurant with my friend Sarah called Tsunami.
I looked at their menu before and lo-and-behold they had sushi that read ‘vegan’ YES! It was my first outing, as a Vegan! So we ordered food. I got an entrée of light fried soft tofu w/ asparagus, green bean and sautéed eggplant with this yummy sauce.
We also shared a bowl of edamame…then my vegan sushi came out! OMG. AMAZING. I ate the whole damn thing.
We also shared this awesome plate of vegetables. I had asked previously if the vegetable platter was vegan. She had mentioned that the chef coated the veggies in flour–well I can’t eat gluten. So they created this little platter for me. The coolest part is that the rock is hot hot hot…and the veggies come out raw and they cook in front of you..HOW COOL!
We ate almost all of it. I was a stuffed Vegan–Vegan Food Coma–AWESOME!
The thing which I mentioned and Sarah and I discussed is that when you eat choose to eat fresh foods–vegan or not–you may ‘over do it’ but the result is not as painful as with processed food. I can honestly say that in the past three days–even though I have been going like a bat outa hell–I have so much energy.
Hence..dance party to new John Mayer Song.
