The vegan challenge went well on day 5 and I'm still going strong. A challenge that I imposed on myself due to laziness and not being able to keep up with my own produce consumption this week was burning out and not packing a lunch on Friday. No worries- I stocked up on some food and came to the realization that I can pack away 1.31 pounds of food in a sitting. Impressive, no? I went to the local hot bar/salad bar near my office and got this bucket of food.
In other eating news, things have been going well on the self-imposed holistic approach to food. I think that I need to start trying more new things because I have started getting bored with my current staples and sometimes I just want a cookie so I'm on the hunt for a recipe that I can enjoy. The 'deadline' is the last day of February and I only really have 2 weeks to go, but the masochist in me will probably keep going. I like that I have become less dependent on sugar, but I still want a cookie (see a theme here)? The only thing that keeps me from jumping head first into one is that my husband is following the plan and I have to be a good example and all. This accountability is definitely something that makes me more successful because when you have to confess to someone, it makes the alternative, or messing up not worth it.
I'm off to take a yoga class, grocery shop, and to maybe do some damage at a couple of clothing stores. I need to see the pretty spring clothes and pretend it's getting warm outside ;)
