New Year’s Resolutions: March 3-9, 2014
Yoga? Check! 5 minutes before bed, at my grandparents’ for the night (long story).
Healthy eating grade? B-. I just want to do better than this. Too many cookies, too much creamy, cheesy Mexican food, too many tortilla chips (always). More veggies, less junk, Brady.
Yoga? Check! 5 minutes before bed.
Healthy eating grade? B+. Healthy but could be healthier. Sugary cereal for breakfast, pad thai for dinner (but with extra veggies and egg!). Obviously I forgot/blew off Vegan Tuesday today.
Yoga? Check! 5 min before bed.
Healthy eating grade? B. Again, healthy but could be healthier. I had a GREAT “whole” breakfast (eggs, an avocado, berries) but ate too many sweets at lunch and had mac n cheese and a sugary pop for dinner.
Yoga? Check! 30 minutes in a.m. The meditation for the day was on non-possessiveness/non-hoarding/how life is not a zero sum game. It was good for me to think about.
Healthy eating grade? A-. I did a pretty awesome job today, especially considering the fact that I was traveling. A big old salad with lots of protein and a smoothie at the airport. How’s THAT?
Yoga? Ahhhhhh. Thus begins the best three days of yoga of my year. 25ish minutes on the beach before sunset. Heaven.
Healthy eating grade? B+. For the rest of this week, it’s a B+. If I were in Chicago, it would be lower, but eating healthy as a vegetarian (not a pescetarian) is tough in Florida. Plus, when you’re away you don’t have your go-tos - you don’t know all the ins and outs of restaurants, which have healthy options and which don’t. Today, for example, I ordered a mango smoothie with yogurt at a coffee shop, but instead of the fresh blended mango I was imagining it was a sugary mix from the fridge. Know what I mean? So I did pretty well under more difficult circumstances. Still too many M&Ms, fries, Pringles, and Grandma’s cheese dip to turn those B+s into As, though.
Yoga? Check! 25ish minutes on the beach at sunrise. Awesome.
Healthy eating grade? B+.
Yoga? Check! 15 minutes after a jog on the beach in a little sandy cove where dolphins swam by. Instead of meditating at the end I just sat and looked at the water and then went for coffee and breakfast after. This was probably the best morning of my year.
Healthy eating grade? B+.
Overall healthy eating GPA: B+. Good. Fine. That accurately sums up how my eating has been feeling recently. Fine. Not spectacular, but not too bad. And I continue to stick with this yoga thing, although (as I keep saying, every week) I could stand to work in some longer workouts. Too many “5 minutes before bed” days.
