Today, I'm feeling really good. I slept in and spread breakfast out over the morning: coffee, a vega energizing shake and a Luna bar -- maybe not the most natural, low-sugar breakfast, but packed with protein and nutrients vegans often miss out on. I just had lunch -- a huge salad next to a portion of brown rice and a black bean and corn salad. I love how the healthful eating, coupled with my recent exercise push, makes my body feel!
This week, there are free fitness classes at the university gym. I went to a bootcamp class on Monday and a cycling class on Tuesday. I'm taking today off because I'm quite sore and need to catch up on work, but I'm looking forward to more classes in the next few days. I think I'll join the gym after this -- the workouts are tough but rewarding, and it's a great way to fit in a good workout and to push myself hard!
The past few days, I've eaten really well during the day and ruined it at night with foods like chocolate and peanut butter. Today, I'm going to keep up the healthful eating throughout the day and hopefully go to bed at a reasonable hour (last night I was doing homework until 4 am!). I want today to be a perfectly healthy day, with no exceptions for sweets or high-calorie treats. I want to continue to feel this good.
If I do continue to feel this good, I hope I can be happy regardless of what the scale says on my next weigh-in. If the number is high, I hope I'm not discouraged. I'll have to reread this blog post and remember how good I feel when I eat well and exercise, regardless of my weight.
