Day 1 Of Meal Prepping & Working Out

Day 1

Dear Healthy Life,

While I can say today went interestingly… It has been awful weather here with the constant rain which, has been exhausting me. I actually have a B12 deficiency and, haven’t been able to get my B12 shot in 3 months because it took that long to renew my insurance. So, I finally got it and, I am actually feeling much better after a few hours after being injected. Rewind to this morning when my alarm went off for 7 a.m. joke was on me because I woke and, felt like I hadn’t slept in over a week. I didn’t even hit snooze I turned that alarm off and, went right to sleep. I woke up around 10 a.m. still completely exhausted. I threw on my robe and, headed downstairs at about 11 a.m. did yoga which was amazing and, made my first smoothie of the day after. I chowed down on that and, had my snack of celery and m homemade peanutbutter at around 12 p.m. While eating my snack I worked on my freelance article and, finished at about 2:30 p.m. By then  was so hungry I couldn’t wait to have lunch!  Lunch was half a piece of Ezekiel bread, 1 cup cucumber, 1/4 cup of chickpeas, alfalfa sprouts, red onion and, I put a little vegan mayo on the bread because I didn’t want balsamic dressing on my sandwhich.  Still unable to shake off being tired I head downstairs to rest and recover. At about 4 p.m. I had my second smoothie with some frozen mango, 1 banana, almond milk and, a scoop of vegan protein powder. Before I ate the smoothie I had two pieces of vegan quinoa chocolate ( not part of the meal planning). This smoothie was one of the most filling things I had all day and, I didn’t eat until about 7:20 p.m. My mom had called and, said she wanted to have a movie night with me and, that I should rest. I was planning on going to zumba but, probably would have been a terrible idea seeing that even speaking to her was making me tired. For dinner I had two small corn tortillas, 3/4 a cup of vegetarian refried beans (they were vegan as well), 1 cup of lettuce, salsa and, 1/4 avocado. Then during the movie I had popcorn that I popped with vegan butter and, some black licorice. Now, in hindsight probably could have had less licorice but, over all I think I did pretty well. I may have to add a little more food but, I can say I was satisfied after my dinner. Over the next couple of weeks I will be working out a lot more so, stay tuned to hear about that. Overall I am pleased and, very grateful for the B12 shot otherwise I would need to live somewhere that has sunshine all the time! I wouldn’t be opposed to living in a very sunny place but, it is N.J. for now. And, a dreary season ahead. I hope with working out, eating well and, taking the correct vitamins that my energy level will be back up where it needs to be. Oh, I got the article all edited and, sent it a few minutes ago in case you all were wondering. It is currently 10:53 p.m. and, I am going to watch a few YouTube videos and, get to bed. Hoping to get a lot of Amazin, Poshmark and, ebay work done tomorrow as well as, laundry, office cleaning, room cleaning and, possibly cleaning the shower.. Which reminds me that I need to get in a shower tomorrow and, get myself ready for the day. I find that if I do my hair/makeup and, get dressed like I would be going to work it motivates me to make my day that much more productive. Hopefully tomorrow I will write that I accomplish everything on my list.

Sweet Dreams,

allie

  1. I’m really enjoying the theme/design of your web site. Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility problems? A couple of my blog readers have complained about my website not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Opera. Do you have any suggestions to help fix this problem?

    1. Thank you, yes, it does stop working for brief periods of time. Recently, it hasn’t really been happening which is good. The wordpress fixes itself so, I am not sure how you would fix yours. I would say to try and, google it or, go to youtube there is always so much advise for many things.

  2. Great article!

    Its really important to try and prep as many meals as possible! It makes it so much easier to not get into any bad habits of eating something you shouldnt 🙂
