Posts Tagged ‘Scale’

I got on the scale this morning, as I have been ever since we came back to Florida and I’ve noticed a change in numbers. The scale is reading 172lbs. from 174lbs. when we returned on Tuesday. I know it’s not much, but it’s hope for me to continue eating and drinking the way I am.

Something else to help inspire me…. I was reading an article yesterday from a pile I’ve been saving to eventually get to and I ran across an article with Alicia Silverstone becoming a Vegan. The article was great; it talked about this book the actress wrote “The Kind Diet”. It’s Alicia Silverstone’s own journey to becoming a vegan and how she views meat, religion, society, and saving the planet as she continues to live a vegan lifestyle.

I read this article and it’s inspired me to read the book, and continue to better myself as a vegan.  When I first started my raw eating lifestyle, I was bound and determined to not label or categorize it. I’m not one of those people who like to be categorized with anything in my life. But as I continue on this journey, I’m noticing the walls of apprehension are coming down. I am more comfortable referring to myself as a vegan before. It’s a becoming a familiar lifestyle to me, one which I want to continue with for the foreseeable future.

I took another class this morning at my Potomac Pilates Workout Gym… and this one really got me sweating.

It’s called Jump Board Pilates, and it’s geared to get your cardio up using the same Pilate moves. You’re basically lying down on the Reformer Machine, but it’s all high energy and you’re using a board to push off.

For an hour, I worked out all my body and really felt it!!!

After the hour, Mike picked me up from my class because he had an early morning meeting. From there, we ran to Costco for some office supplies and groceries, the post office and then to the local grocery store for more supplies.

Apple, Pear and Walnut Salad

Not to long ago we got back to the house, unloaded the car, I took a shower and then I ate some of my leftovers from yesterday. The Apple, Pear and Walnut Salad and the Whole Grain Rigatoni Dish were still as good today, as they were yesterday.

For an after lunch treat, I indulged on two small pieces of Jelly Danish that Mike bought at Costco. But to get the sweet tooth out of my system, I’m drinking some Vedge Juice. Which really tastes great.

I’ve realized, in order to get the numbers going down on the scale I have to kick the sweets out.  And keep my portion control down. This sounds like a broken record, but it needs to be done. No matter what!!!!
