Okay, so today was a nice day...even if I didn't exactly hit the gym. Well...I DID go to the gym today (our local YMCA), but just to swim with the kids, and not to actually work out. I figure every week gets a rest day, and since I ran in an 8K yesterday, I assumed I deserved a day off. Of course, it's now 740pm, and I wish I had spent just an hour or so doing some form of physical exercise.
I decided last night that I really should try running in the morning. I thought that today would be a good morning for that - until I got up and both dogs did too (just adpoted a new one on Monday who isn't quite house trained yet, so I'm a bit worried to leave him alone yet). I fed them, then wanted them to go out and do their business. Then of course I wanted to make tea and have some peace and quite before the rest of the family woke up. Next thing I knew, it was 9am and everyone was up, so then I made breakfast, and before I knew it, it was time to take Rico to his first vet appt.
On the plus side, it was a good healthy eating day. Being a vegan, I have to re-think the ideas of conventional breakfast. My choices are typically oatmeal or smoothies. I decided a few weeks ago that there are no rules, so today's breakfast was spicy lentils. I had some coleslaw for a snack, and pretzels and hummus for lunch after swimming (here's where convenience food gets me every time). Dinner was a totally awesome Butternut Squash recipe from Fat Free Vegan (see link on the side of the page). Oh...and a couple of beers too. Is that bad? They were light beers....
So like I've said before, I can handle one or two healthy habits at a time, but balancing all 3? Ugh.
