Food and Fit: Monday August 1st

Good morning, loves <3

Happy August!!  Where did the time and summer go??  Are you ready to start fresh and begin a new month to a better you?  I sure am.

I have slacked on my set-goal of entering what-I-eat-each-day posts that I made last week.  Some family issues came up that prevented me from posting (but you don’t want to know about that so I’ll get on with it!)  If you haven’t checked out my Food and Fit August goals, you can see them here.  I’d love for you to follow along so we can keep each other accountable πŸ™‚

August 1

Food:

  • Berry protein smoothie bowl: 2 cups frozen mixed berries, 1 block silken tofu (I swear you cannot taste this!!), 3 tbsp powdered peanut butter, and 1 tbsp cocoa blended in my BlendTec.
  • Veggie fajitas:   flour tortillas, 3 cups grilled peppers, onions, mushrooms, 1/2 can 99% fat free lime refried beans, homemade guacamole-using 1 avocado, 1/2 cup fresh tomatoes, 1 cup lettuce, taco sauce, lime, and salsa on top.  I grilled an ear of corn but I was so full so I’ll be making enchiladas with the leftovers tonight πŸ™‚
  • Oreos: Yes, all varieties of Oreos are vegan, in fact.  Hallelujah!! 3 chocolate chip Oreos.  I have had 3 treats this day and have been dealing with heavy family issues that has brought me down.  When I’m upset, I like to eat and am a sweets-eater.
  • Oatmeal Cream Pies: 2.  These, however, are not vegan as they have a milk ingredient*

Fit:

No workouts today, like I planned.  My stomach was very sore due to anxiety but I will be making up for it on Tuesday!!

*I’m not perfect, but I try my best to keep as close to 100% vegan as possible but there are times that I will have something that is not.  It’s about consistency, not perfection.  I’m a perfectionist and have struggled with this since I was young.  So much in fact that I battle OCD tendencies and if I try to be 100% perfect, I will struggle with anxiety, panic attacks, and depression.  This is why I allow myself to slip up and not call myself 100% vegan.  If I did, I wouldn’t be truthful in the times that I eat something like this oatmeal pie, and it would cause me problems that I would rather not experience ever again.  I hope you understand πŸ™‚
