Day 4

I could've stayed on the on the elliptical a bit longer last night, but I'm feeling pleasantly stiff after last night's Core Class. The instructor, Nancy, included a good mix of familiar and new moves--I'm definitely going to try to make it out there again soon.

I have a big test tomorrow, so I think today is going to be my "rest" day--although I'll still try to get some situps/pushups in. Even though I started the Self Challenge a few days ago, I don't know if I'm really that into it. I cook for two (myself & the bf), and I don't always have the time/resources to make the recipes they suggest. Also, my meal plan is pretty tofu-heavy, and tofu is pretty pricey in this part of the world (we eat a lot more beans and lentils). It's nice to have the email reminders in the morning, so I won't stop them yet, but I don't know if I'm really "doing" the Challenge.

BTW, the photo shows the yummy bulgur dish I made last night. It swelled up some more over night in the fridge, and let me just say, it is SUPER filling.

Vegan Egg & Tempeh Bacon Sandwhich (on Everything Bagel) from Yorgo's
Raspberry Black Tea

Bulgur w/bell peppers & vinegar

1/4 bell pepper w/ Annie's Goddess Dressing

Moe's Art Vandeley Burrito (no rice, both beans, no cheese, sour cream, etc)

1/2 cup Rice Dream Cocoa Marble Fudge (not as caloric as it sounds!)

My big test tomorrow isn't helping my diet/fitness goals. The BF is out buying more soy ice cream as I type. Plus, my abs aren't feeling as sore as I'd hoped. I'm taking this as a good and as a bad sign. A few weeks ago, I wouldn't have been able to get out of bed, so I'm glad I'm stronger; however, I want to find a class (or video?) that will really push me. But again, I sort of have to put things on hold for this test.


  1. Good luck with your test tomorrow! :)

  2. I'm contemplating the Self Challenge, too. I need to shake things up a little--I feel like I just eat the same things over and over!
