That was breakfast. It’s a protein shake with, frozen blueberries, ice, banana, almond butter, and water.  I got the protein isolate powder from Costco based on Ashley’s recommendation.

I was never a “drink your meal” type of person. When I began in February, I thought I wouldn’t be able to have a shake in the morning for breakfast because 1. I like savoury things in the morning and 2. I like to chew my food. However because of a book I began reading called Loving What Is by Byron Katie, I’m realizing that I created a narrative in my head about who I am and what I like or don’t like. That narrative can change. Who we think we are, and what we think we are is fluid.

Lunch: Spinach, chicken, egg-white, quinoa, pea sprouts and a grape tomato because I can’t eat food without some sort of colour in it.

I was tired today. SOOOOO very tired. I nodded off at work today…but luckily I work at home, so I was able to get up, drink some water, wash my face, get some sunlight and then go back to work. My calves and quads were still killing, and I knew that today was going to be leg day with Ashley *GROAN*, AND, AND, AND, I was hungry after my snack!

Well, I drank some water, went pee for the 100th time that morning (Gail and Trica, I know how you feel now), and sucked it up, then headed for my work out.

2014-05-22 17.33.43Dinner: Chicken,scrambled eggs (yeah, I even need variety of protein on my plate and I frequently pair chicken with eggs. It’s only 4 oz of chicken, and 1 egg plus 1 egg white), tomato, broccoli, cucumber and hummus. The kids and Daniel had rice mixed into their scrambled eggs.

The kids gobbled up the food. Simple is better in my house. The kids eat without as much complaining. This took me about 20 min to throw together because I was still soooo tired. I went to bed around 9:30pm. I really wanted to read Love What Is, but crashed instead.
