Hi my friends! I hope that you are all well and that you enjoyed your weekend. I was pretty productive today which was surprising because I thought I’d be a lazy ass but I actually got a lot done! I’m glad I did everything I had to do so I can rest between work and my training session tomorrow. I’m really excited about it because I really enjoyed my last session on Thursday! We incorporated more MMA type workouts without any of the impact so I still kind of felt like I was fight training! It helped a lot too because it showed me that I’m still strong even with an injury
I am so excited to show you today’s meals! I was really focusing on eating all of my meals and snacks and drinking tons of water. As of now I’ve had about 80 oz of water plus all of the water in the fruits and veggies I ate! Pretty good!
For breakfast I had my Good Morning, Sunshine smoothie! As you can see it came out a little thick because I didn’t measure my frozen fruit (oops) but it was so good! It was like eating soft serve for breakfast
An absolutely delicious plum for my morning snack. It was so good.
Avocado toast for lunch with the other half of the avocado from yesterday. It was a perfect avocado! I’ve had bad luck with avocados lately but this was a good one.
For snack I had some of my garlic and herb roasted cashews (I totally forgot I had them!) and some roasted seaweed sheets.
This was the perfect end to the day! I think it was definitely my favorite meal and probably one of the best meals I’ve had in a long time. Now I know I said I was done with tofu for a while but tofu scrambles are so good and a really good, quick meal. I figured I don’t eat soy otherwise really so I got some tofu for some scrambles. This one is my new favorite with lots of spinach and a cocktail tomato (very good by the way), and I ate it with some roasted cauliflower and a carrot. Such a perfect meal.
Yesterday the lovely Gabby over at the Veggie Nook tagged me in a Hope Blog Relay. I’m always one for a challenge and like Gabby mentioned in her post, writing like this is a challenge for me. It is so difficult to choose the right words to discuss a topic like hope but I figured I’d give it a try for you
For me, hope is a choice. It is a leap of faith. It is believing that you can have anything you want in life. We can all choose to have hope. We can live our lives knowing that we will one day reach our fullest potential, and we will work harder in order to do so.
It is so easy to become overwhelmed by the hardships that life throws at us. Conversely, it is incredibly difficult to pick yourself up, dust yourself off and to carry on, knowing that it will all work out in the end. It shows incredible strength to be able to make that choice. I know that I am guilty of making the wrong choice from time to time and I get stuck in my rut, believing that the unhappiness and hardship that I experience are my destiny. When I sort it out and realize that I deserve happiness, health and to be on the path that I envision for myself, I’ve made the choice to have hope. Right now, I have hope that I will be able to reclaim my health and that I will one day be doing what I am meant to do in this life.
I hope (ha) that makes sense. This was a tough one to put into words! Thank you for the challenge Gabby
