Getting back on track.

Sunday, November 22, 2009

I am officially 20! I turned 20 on Friday and that morning I woke up and thought I should countinue to eat clean and not indulge on the birth-date. It was because the previous night I did as a matterof fact indulge in choBoldcolate. Bad idea! I felt so sick and gross, it was delicious, but I should have ate in moderation. I bought these yummy dark chocolate honey comb pieces from Henry's bulk aisle. I discovered it last week and it was the bomb! but because I made myself sick, I won't be eatting those for a while.

That morning I had my healthy breakfast and had a really good sweat from working out. I did one hour and 5 minutes on the elliptical in my hoodie, it felt like a sauna. Then I proceeded to do the rowing machine for 15 minutes. Good cardio! I felt like a new person.

I left the gym feeling joyful and happy.

I treated myself to a haircut and then I got treated to dinner at Phil's BBQ in point loma!

I told myself I'd eat clean, but after time I just thought I should be able to enjoy some good food, especially for a special occasion.
When we arrived at Phil's BBQ I couldn't decide what to get, so I imagined how each meal would make me feel. I was aiming for something that was healthy, yet worth eating. I got the BBQ Veggie Burger while my treater got the best of both which consisted of 2 Beefy Ribs, 1/4 chicken, and large friess.

I ate half of my veggie burger and nibbled on his fries and chicken.

It was bigger in person!

My veggie burger wasn't the only thing I fed my tummy. I had mallow cups! (marshmallow filled chocolate cups) and a very sugar loaded beverage. I thought that since this is the only day I get to indulge, I shouldn't feel guilty about it, because tomorrow I will get on track. And so I did. Earlier the next morning...

I ate scrambled egg whites in for breakfast at The Corner Bakery and shot it down with 2oz of wheatgrass.

I went home and for a snack I made a concoction in what is called a Green Monster, inspired my Angela from

My green monster:

  • 8 oz unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1 scoop of Amazing Grass wheatgrass powder
  • 1 Tablespoon of Salba
  • 1 frozen whole banana
  • 1 scoop chocolate whey
  • 1 cup of spinach

I also followed it by another shot of wheatgrass! (trying to detox all that bad stuff I ate the night before) I felt very awake, refreshed, and energized! and was ready to work out!

I did 35 minutes of cardio and worked out my back, shoulders, biceps, and triceps, and did some sets up til failure. I felt so strong in the gym and was very focused. It was nice considering the fact that the gym was almost empty and peaceful.

Came home and devoured my salad from Whole Foods! I love that supermarket!

I have discovered my love for feta cheese. Those are beets by the way! I love how there is a subtle hint of sweetness, and the cucumber salad quinoa was extraordinary! but unfortunately I can't afford to buy from their salad bar often. But I do have a box of uncooked quinoa at home. experimentation #1, here I come!And as a treat :o)
