Day 9 and I’m feeling fine! In case you’re just catching up, I’ve been doing Lacy Davis and Jessica Wilkins’ Reset & Restore program since January 2nd. It’s a 3-week intuitive eating program with meal plans, recipes, workout videos, and guided meditations. I’ve had a few people ask me how they can join in, and I’m sorry to say that the program is sold out for this go-round. There were a limited number of slots since the program also involves one-on-one health coaching sessions with Jessica. But I’m really hoping that they do this program again next January!
This morning, I had half a cherry pie Larabar before heading outside for a 5-mile run (speedwork this morning!). Much to my surprise, it wasn’t cold! Overnight, the temps had warmed up to the 50s. But it was SO WINDY. That made for a tough run, but I’ll take warmish and windy over cold any day. After my run, I had what has become my very favorite new breakfast — Warm Oats & Banana N’ice Cream.
Remember that wind I mentioned? Well, it blew over a tree on my street and knocked out internet at my house and my office (they’re a block apart). So when I got to work, I wasn’t able to get much done. I opted to spend the morning working remotely at Otherlands, a coffeehouse in Cooper-Young, where I enjoyed a pot of Roasted Green Tea.
I went home for lunch (as I do most days) and had this steamy bowl of leftover Roasted Cauliflower & Chickpea Soup with brown rice. Even though it was warmer out, the wind made the air feel quite cool, and this soup was just what I needed.
The internet was still down at the office in the afternoon, but I went in anyway and found some off-line things to do. Around 4 p.m., I heated up my afternoon snack — half a Baked Sweet Potato with Almond Butter.
That was a perfect, hearty snack since, right after work, I went home and did the third Reset & Restore workout video (led by Jessica and emailed out by Lacy on Monday). This kept me satisfied throughout the 30-minute workout.
But afterward, I was hungry! Thankfully, I had made my dinner the night before for easy reheating. I’m all about meal prep, y’all. When I’m hungry after work, I just want to heat something up — not spend an hour cooking dinner. Anyway, tonight’s dinner was this Thai Red Curry, a recipe Lacy adapted from Cookie & Kate.
Now, sadly, my internet at home is STILL NOT WORKING. So right now, I'm at Imagine Vegan Cafe stealing wifi and enjoying a yummy Berry Good Smoothie (strawberry, blueberry, almond milk, agave) for dessert. Sucks having to leave home to use wifi, but at least there a healthy dessert in it for me!
