early riser

I woke up REALLY early today--I'm just excited to be back at work I guess! 5:25 and even after my shower my stomach was grumbling. I peeled a mango and diced it up and added yogurt for later, and ate the skin and around the pit to help tide me over right then. I cooked 3/4 cup or so of pumpkin puree with some almond milk and spices in the microwave to also help tide me over, and had a big mug of earl grey with almond milk.
at 6:30 I gave in and just had breakfast. I ate the mango and yogurt and then followed up with another 1/3 cup of yogurt and about 1/3 cup of muesli, and more tea.
I need to get back into the habit of waiting, till at least 7:30!! Ok: tomorrow!!! Hopefully this doesnt throw off my entire day!

Star Trek, Yogen Fruz, and Pumpkin Oats!

May18a May18b
This morning I woke up to a big bowl of pumpkin oats (1/2 to 3/4 cup pumpkin puree, 1/4 cup steel cut oats, 1 cup water, spices and 2tbsp or so of sugar free 'maple syrup') it wa so good I had to nuke some more pumpkin puree with almond milk, spices, and 'syrup' just to make it last longer. I also had a tbsp or two of peanut butter!

This kept me really full until lunch--I went to Milestones with my family and I had the "Garden Greens" salad, entree size. It was awesome! I also had a cup of fat free, sugar free mango-banana yogen fruz at the theatre.. that stuff is AMAZING. We watched Star Trek and it was mindblowingly awesome. I love it!

After the movie I had an early dinner--lots of veggies, baba ganoosh, and peanut butter (lots more of the peanut butter and sweet potato, not pictured. Plus some walnuts!) I also had a mango, and a few cups of plain popcorn (with some spices and salt)

I packed lunch up for tomorrow--yay back to work! I'm also excited to FINALLY be back at the gym (I'll go after work) :D :D (I made some dressing with almond milk, salt, and baba ganoosh in the little bottle there!)

She Lives...

Whoa, so I'm back. Life since my last post sped along and I couldn't keep up. So I'll just update:

-I've lost weight. I'm about 131-133 at the moment! I went shopping today and I'm a size 3/4!! I'm rather happy with my body, but since for the most part I'm just eating conciously and when I'm hungry: if I continue to lose weight I wont worry unless it starts to really dip.

-I am currently 19.8% to 20% body fat.. if my scale is correct...!! SO CLOSE.

-I am back from Virginia.. it was a lot of fun but an insane amount of work.

-I love the peppermint chocolate stick lara bar. I found a ton of other flavors at the health food store at Sherway Gardens, but didn't buy them ($2.50 each..! I might break down in order to try the Chai Tea one, but that is all!)

-I had dinner on Friday at Fressen and indulged in the richest, most scrumtious vegan chocolate ganache cake. Mmm. I got a sugar high.

-I am starting a vegetable garden and spent this morning up to my knees in dirt. It was a lot of fun!

-I was going to make flambeed banana crepes for the BSI: Banana, but unfortunately I really just haven't had the time in the one day I've been back to gather the ingredients!

OK! SO since we're caught up, hopefully posting should resume to normal?

Tomorrow is Victorias day! The guy I'm seeing (hereonin to be called "K") is making a stew that is actually me-friendly (I'm impressed..) and I'll make gluten-free focaccia, and maybe some apps for him and some of his friends. Then we're all going to go see fireworks!

Thanks for hanging in there with me guys. I know I've been wretched!
