A Random Week

This may get long, so bear with me.  I thought I would follow myself for a random week and then again in a few weeks when I try some changes.

Each day I take:
2 cinnamon
2 kelp
Vitamin D
B complex
Flax Oil

Monday
12 oz chocolate almond milk
1/4 cup raw nuts
protein bar

 Lunch: carrots, green grapes, plums, pluots and kiwi

 Dinner: Cucumber-Tomato Salad
Bowl of Spanish rice
One corn and one flour tortilla with a mix of
black beans, garbanzo beans, corn, guacamole, sour cream, artichoke and garlic salsa and Veggie Shreds faux cheese

4 20 oz bottles of water (from the tap in a reusable bottle) with lemon juice
1 12 oz diet soda



Exercise for Monday:
Yoga, crunches (40), arm curls while watching a movie and jumping rope in 4 60-second bursts.
Also general house cleaning-it was a sweeping heavy day.
Did not walk-raining.

Tuesday:
1/2 avocado
2 servings SF caramel crispies
2 packs of oatmeal (Revolution)
2 servings of pasta-no topping
1 bowl of saffron rice
1 pluot
1 green apple

Exercise for Tuesday:
10 minutes of arm curls
5 rounds of jumping for 60 second bursts
Walked 5 miles, it rained the last bit.

Wednesday:
Read a thing that said what you do first in a day sets up your priorities and the Universe will align your day accordingly. 
So, I talked to Matt a while, did some stretching, took care of my skin, walked around with the dogs and got some air and took out all the trash and opened some windows.  Sent some recovery and healing vibes to John Taylor Gatto who tops my list as Man I Most Admire and who recently had a severe stroke.

1/4 cup nuts
1 bowl cereal
1 cheese/tomato/lettuce sandwich on white
2 servings potato chips
1 slice cheesecake
1 strawberry
1 serving grapes
a few dill pickles
1 small slice of birthday cake
1/2 avacado
2 servings of stick pretzels
2 glasses of diet soda
3 glasses of water

Exercise:
talking (ha!)
walked 4.5 miles carrying 3 pound weights in each hand
30 crunches

Thursday:
It's Hobbit Day!
1 banana
1 kiwi
1 plum
1/2 cup crushed pineapple
1/4 cup Mandarin oranges
1/2 Granny Smith apple
2 servings apple-peach oatmeal
1 chocolate chip cookie (I would have had more, but I only had 3 left in a bag I found while cleaning, so don't think I am amazing for resisting-though I did not buy more at the grocery later, so maybe a little credit for effort.)
cucumber-tomato salad
quinoa with rice
black beans
garbanzo beans
avocado slices
sour cream
veggie shreds
corn tortilla


Exercise:
cleaned house, which counts.  Cleaned out the fridge, organized the pantries, swept and mopped the kitchen and did 5 loads of laundry all before 10.  I was sweating!
30 crunches

Friday:
The whole day was a bust as far as food, from the veggie burger I had for breakfast (at 11) to the Krispy Kreme doughnut for lunch followed by snack stuff at MNO, including a slice of homemade raisin bread that thought had a yogurt spread to go with it, so I dabbed it all over the top and sat down to discover-butter.  I probably did not eat 2,000 calories all day, but it was ALL crap.

No exercise other than walking around at the field trip, which was a tour of the dam.

For the week-no weight change.  I had hoped for a loss, but not after Friday's fiasco.  Saturday-right back at it, eating better. Mostly fruit, I made hummus and added avocado for dinner-we were watching movies that night.  We did some window frame repairs on the house.  Sunday, I had blended fruit for breakfast, we hiked 3 miles with some serious elevation changes, blended fruit and veggie juice for lunch and spaghetti squash on the grill for dinner, no sauce.
