My back is doing much better today so I started to test it a bit more. Maybe this was good and maybe it wasn't, not sure just yet. But, thankfully we did get to the gym today as the weather was positive degrees. Food was a bit off again since my stomach is just fighting me since I'm still on my antibiotics for my back. I'm doing my best though. That's all we can hope for some days, a good attempt at doing the right things.
Breakfast: Raw Meal Protein Powder Pancake. This is protein powder, ground flaxseed, 1/2 banana, unsweetened almond milk and a few vegan chocolate chips. I also used 1/4 tsp Earth Balance Vegan butter and also a little syrup. I'm working on the recipe right now so it's still not perfect looking but it did taste good. :)
Exercise: Walk with the pup outside before it turned negative temperatures. :( 1.25 miles
Snack: Whole Foods Organic Sesame Sticks - oh how you taunt me tasty treat!
Lunch: Steamed broccoli, organic tomato sauce and a chickenless spicy patty (vegan)- Not the best since it has processed patty but at least it was filling and gave protein.
Snack: Some vegan chocolate chips, pineapple and green tea
Exercise: 30 minutes weight lifting & 30 minutes elliptical (only minor back pain)
Dinner: Homemade Vegan Japanese Curry with steamed Korean rice. On top I had some pickled ginger.
Snack: DH made me my favorite flour-less chocolate chip cookies. This are made from oats, ground. He added sprinkles (since they make me happy). They look a bit odd since it was his first time making and forgot to add the sprinkles into the batter instead of on top. But it was so nice of him to make them for me and they were so tasty.
