I want to make 2010 my healthiest year ever and I have a lot of health related goals that I want to incorporate into my life. I decided instead of overwhelming myself with 12 different things, I would take one step toward a healthier life each month.
One of my New Year’s Resolutions is to recommit to being vegetarian (I’ve been on and off for almost ten years). But, I wanted to include the blog and Ben in this step towards a healthier life. So, January’s Health Challenge is – Meatless Mondays.
Each Monday I will make a dinner that is meatless, simple and dee-lish! Suggestion: If you’re already a vegetarian maybe you could try a new recipe or a new bean or veggie on Mondays?
I will have to make the meal something that a meat-eater (Ben) would eat (without topping it with meat) so stay tuned if you have a carnivore you’re feeding too 🙂
Today Ben and I hit the gym for some much needed exercise. It is so hard to be stuck inside, but it’s brutally cold out! I did 30 min on the treadmill and then walked while reading a mag.
Breakfast was a bowl of cereal with cottage cheese added for protien and cherries. Even though this breakfast was just as high in calories as my usual morning eats I was hungry less than two hours later (I can get close to four hours with oats).
After church and an errand I came home to a big salad (I really wanted to hit up the local salad bar, but showed some restraint to my wallet).
…and baked Cheetos. Why did I even buy this crack?!
I couldn’t keep my hand out of the Cheetos bag so I put an apple in it! Chomp, chomp!But…now I’m hungry again! I suspect that starting my day with something other than oats or PB loaded ww bread throws me off some how the rest of the day! I love cereal, but you guys know it doesn’t love me back.
