short and sweet

It has been a ridiculously long day.  I have pictures, but I really don’t have the energy to upload them.  Basically, I started the day with a nice long workout…four mile run and upper body:

3 sets of 15 reps chest press with 15 lbs

3 sets of 15 reps preacher curl with 10 lbs

3 sets of 15 skull crushers with 15 lbs

3 sets of 15 military press with 5 lbs

3 sets of 15 bent over row with 15 lbs

3 sets of 15 lower back extension

3 sets of 25 crunches on ball

Then I got ready for my doctor’s appointment.  It was in Tampa, which is a good 1.5 hour drive, but I was able to meet up with a friend and her daughter for dinner at one of my favorite restaurants, Evo’s!  They don’t fry anything and they have vegan things marked on their menu.  It was really delicious.  I had a Veggie burger with all the fixings and mesquite ketchup (that they make by the way).

I went by Whole Foods before heading home and got some staples:  whole wheat pastry flour, Earth Balance sticks, Tom’s toothpaste, bananas, and two cans of Amy’s Alphabet Soup (which I can’t find anywhere else, what is going on with that).

I was able to make the chocolate chip cookies tonight.  I decided to go with Dreena’s recipe and made two batches.  I wanted to see how they turned out if I used the whole wheat pastry flour.  They actually worked really well, or it could just be because they were warm gooey cookies fresh out of the oven :).  I’ll let you know if I have a better idea tomorrow.  I’ll post pictures as soon as I can, but I will be lucky if I can even post the next few days.  So brace yourself and don’t abandon me if I am MIA for a few days :).

About OneVeganFoodie

Let's see. I am a certified personal trainer (CPT), group exercise instructor, nutritional counselor, and wellness counselor. My training background focuses mainly on getting overweight populations into shape, but I have worked with people wanting to gain strength/healthy weight and agility. I worked with the Army and the Marines for several years before settling into a civilian lifestyle. I'm still adjusting and I really miss it. I also enjoy coaching non-runners through their first running event. I post my workouts on here but remember that you need to seek medical advice prior to starting a new exercise regimine. I also love food. I've been vegetarian for 10 years and 4 of the last years I have been completely vegan. I love food and I love to cook. I follow a strict diet that I do not recommend for everyone, but I really enjoy as it keeps me healthy and helps me to know what is going into my body.
