Okay, I’m a little OCD (or CDO, for those of you who are really OCD and don’t like letters out-of-order). So, I decided that the best thing for me is to make a plan, a schedule of exercising. Today I walked 5 miles. It felt great. I really love to walk. It took me about 1 hour and 10 minutes to walk the whole 5. It was a pretty good clip. That will be my Friday exercise. I’m still working on what to do for the other days, but I want to mix it up a bit. I’ll probably do a lot of walking, though, because that’s what I like to do the most.
Here’s my rundown for the day:
Breakfast: Oatmeal made of whole oats with almond milk, dates, blueberries
Lunch: Salad topped with kidney beans and Dijon date dressing; And, I came up with a Fuhrman friendly, yummy, super easy and very filling vegan chili:
28 oz. can chopped tomatoes
1 can white beans, drained and rinsed
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
1 green pepper, chopped
1 small onion, chopped
1 Tbsp. Spike
1 Tbsp. Almond Butter
1/3 Cup Pumpkin Seeds
Directions: Throw everything into a soup pot and cook for about 15 minutes. Serves about 6-8. It’s very filling.
Snack: banana with almond butter
Dinner: Vegan/gluten-free pizza (I used a mix by a company called Namaste – it was pretty tasty, and it’s vegan, and it only has 1/2 teaspoon of oil in it) with mushrooms, peppers, onions and dairy free cheese (Daiya)
Dessert: Yummy banana oat bar
I’m feeling a little hungry tonight, which is unusual, but I may need to increase my calories for the day if I exercise as much as I did today. It’s too late to eat now. My chili at lunch was very filling, so I didn’t eat much of it, so I may have not had enough to eat for lunch. Oh, well, it’s good to go to bed a little hungry, right? I think that’s a good thing, anyway.
