Day 12 of the 2-Week Super Shape-Up!!
So, here's my journal for today:
* lemon water
* I was heading out for the whole day, and I wanted to "front-load" my fruits and veggies, rather than try to make up the deficit later on. So, I made the items pictured... a shake (mixed berries, acai, pomegranate, & soy yogurt) and a ginormous salad (6 cups of veggies!) without any dressing at all. I took all of this on my one-hour drive and it took me 30 minutes to eat that salad!! It was an interesting experience, eating that salad plain. I really got to taste all the different flavors in the mixed greens. In all honesty, I really prefer my salad with some dressing on it, but it made me slow down, become conscious of what I was consuming, and chew really well. Always a good reminder!
* I felt really great after getting all those fruits and veggies in! But once I got to our destination in Durango, I was hungry, so we got the healthiest lunch possible - food from a health food store, Nature's Oasis. I got the veggie sandwich (I asked for the heartiest bread they had, which was still not that whole-grainy looking, but oh well. They filled it with tons o' organic veggies though! It included carrots, sprouts, spinach, tomatoes, red onions, cukes, and hummus.) I also had a few "pop chips" which are un-fried, lower fat "potato chips." And, shockingly, a ginger kombucha! ;-)
* Later, I had some popcorn and one vegan peanut butter cup. I've never seen a vegan peanut butter cup before (that I didn't make myself), so I was kind of excited! It came in a package of two, and my daughter and I each ate one.
* Upon arriving home, I had some organic cherries and am catching up on my water intake! I will get on the recumbent bike for a while tonight - at least 45 minutes. Also, I did two nice visualizations on the drive - one on the way there and one on the way back!
So, how did YOUR day go??
