Week 5 - Day 47 - March 15

Monday, March 15, 2010

This weekend, I visited Sunflower, a vegan restaurant in Northern Virginia. I had a green vitality juice and curried soy protein and vegetables. Both were very good. The juice had cabbage, carrot, apple and parsley. I am not sure why it was reddish pink in color. When I make juices at home, they are usually green due to the spinach or kale. The curried dish surprised me. The soy protein tasted like chicken. Its texture was even like chicken. Would I go again, yep! The curry was spiced just so, not too hot but just right (as Goldilocks would say). I had leftovers for lunch and have another serving for lunch tomorrow.

Yes, the scale moved today! It went from 199.9 to 198.75. I am almost 10 pounds lighter emoticon. My clothes are getting looser but I refuse to purchase new ones until I am 20 pound lighter. Even then, I am only going to buy a few essentials. When I reach the halfway mark, I will be hitting the outlet stores. I am hoping at size 12 or so, I will be able to find lots of options.

I am considering using the Meal Planner. I want to ensure I am eating the right nutrients each day. I like that you can chose different foods should you not like their choice.

I love my heart rate monitor. This was my first time using it during spin class. I burned more than 500 calories during the 45 minute class.

    Instead of or in addition to the Meal Planner, I would just recommend tracking your food. Go to my tools- my nutrition at the top of the page. Pick the foods that interest you from the meal planner. Then add any additional foods. Here's the important part! At the bottom of the screen it will have information about the nutrients you pick and tell how you scored with them!
