Yesterday I ended up spending 6 hours on my homemade Christmas gift making elf work. I ran out of steam at the end of the day and just had a bunch of snacks for dinner because I didn't have the energy for cooking on top of all of my elfing. It was all 100% on plan food though, so I feel good about that.
Exercise: 1 mile bike ride with Riley
Breakfast: Overnight oats with soy yogurt, banana & cinnamon, tea
Lunch: 3 tostadas - corn tortilla topped with PD Unfried Black Beans, PD Not-Yo Cheeze Sauce, PD Salsa Molcajete, PD Onion Dip with chives, and chopped spinach & cilantro.
Dinner: A big snack fest - PD Baked Tortilla Chips, some toasted whole wheat pita wedges, PD Onion Dip with chives, PD Hummus with jalapeño & cilantro, PD Spicy Birdseed, 2 slices of PD Banana Bread, and a PD Cherry Chocolate Cacao Muffin. I was definitely hungry, just didn't feel like cooking a meal.
All Protective Diet (PD) recipes can be found HERE.
Mindfulness: All meals were eaten sitting down, enjoying my food, and taking a little breather from my other activities. Actually taking time to enjoy a meal instead of rushing.
Well, I am completely on track today. Busy with a bit of Christmas shopping, meeting a friend downtown, and doing lots of cooking this afternoon to restock the house with healthy delicious foods. I may not get a workout in today, but I plan to do yoga during the weekend, even after my challenge is done. I will give a final check-in type post tomorrow to wrap up my photo food journal of 30 days of PD food. I will also share some key insights from the challenge later this weekend.
Enjoy your Friday!
