BLC #19 Plan

Sunday, April 29, 2012

So I really need to get back to running, cycling and an otherwise active life. I really MUST... FOR ME! So I must PLAN.... because this is a really busy time.... Weekends will be nearly impossible to get most exercise in -- lots of Highland Games coming up.

My Plan:

Cycle -- 2x per week
Run -- 2x per week
Walk -- 1x per week
ST -- 3x per week

I'm going to work on eating clean, and reducing the amount of white flour, and sugar that has crept back into my diet. And I know that I feel best if I eat a high Protein Breakfast, and remember to include protein in each meal. I must make some more hummus...

Breakfasts are still my hardest - sometimes I have difficulty getting breakfast made. BUT I need a high protein, VEGAN, soy-free breakfast, that is quick to make. I'm not a fan of rice pudding -- so brown rice pudding doesn't sound any better... I'm scared to try quinoa "puddings" - another vegan breakfast idea. Right now my main high protein breakfast is a hemp protein shake made with frozen banana and almond milk.

Dinners are sometimes difficult as we are generally busy at dinner time. I have some meals in the freezer for me, so I've taken one out for the next few nights... This should get me through the next few days.... And each week I'll bring something else out, to prepare for those busy nights.

Water - I must ensure I get my water in. I was doing well, but think I've let that fall by the wayside...

    Have you tried Chia seed puddings?

    You can do it, girl. I am rooting for you. One thing we do for meals that I find extremely helpful, taking meal cooking from a 30 + minute ordeal to as little as 5 mins, is to cook ahead. When DH grills or smokes meat, we do a bunch of several meats and freeze them in serving sizes for one or two--you can always pull out more when needed. Baked potatoes will last in the fridge for more than a week, so I bake numerous at once. Then it is just a matter of heating that up a little and throwing together a salad or some cooked veggies. And grilled meats make a wonder and fast stove top soup or stirfry for the whole family. Cut up the meat and a little baked potato, throw some of your fave fresh, frozen, leftover and canned veggies in with some of your favorite seasonings, let simmer to hot and chow down in 15 to 20 mins. emoticon And there is nothing wrong with soup or stew in a big crock pot ready for each one to get to as they are ready. You have done it before wonderfully. You will do it again. Hugs.

    I had just printed this recipe for quinoa pizza bites, they are GF and can be vegan. I have not tried it but I am going to make then freeze then just reheat from freezer.
