Let me just say this: Today has nothing to do with food for the most part! Sometimes, you just have to step away. You need to enjoy "other" things. And here's the real thing - I am so absolutely, positively passionate about food, health and fitness, but I am a much more in-depth and complex individual than that.
I have mind and a voice and quite often you can find me being very open and verbal with what I'm thinking and passionate about! I will tell anyone at anytime that their views about "what's good for them" and what's not, is not what I believe. And by the same token, I will also tell anyone about my opinions with other things I am passionate about.
Besides food/fitness/health/nutrition, here are my passions - true passions - in life:
- Web 2.0 and Social Media Networking/Marketing
- Country Music
- Marketing and Design
- Art and Wine
- My husband
- My Peekepoo, Fiona & My Great Dane, Reagan
- My family
- My friends
Decide TODAY to make a life of, and filled with, PASSION! The days when I am stressed, sad or missing my family and friends back home, I take myself to my passions. I dive into them. I commit my whole self to them. I then remember the other things that make the spark in me shine. I am hopeful and I know that someday these will all come together! I will be extremely successful in helping others with my talents and my passions! And until then, I just work and work and work towards this success, gaining the knowledge and necessary experience. (Side Note: A great place to start for me...Inner Architect Website - Social Media Networking/Marketing Inspiration!)
Off my tangent for today and back to food....
My day was pretty sporadic again today, since we have visitors (However, I did wake up at 7am, before anyone was awake to go workout for about 1.5 hours!) Here is a list of what I ate:
- Organic Raw Carrots
- Coffee (just a tiny amount) + unsweetened rice milk + stevia
- Dried Bananas
- Red Wine + White Wine (Steven Kent + Rodrigue Molyneaux + Wente Vineyards)
- (Uncle Yu's) - Broccoli, Cauliflower, Snap Peas, Asparagus, Bok Choy, Mushrooms + White Rice
- Steel Cut Oats + Vanilla Nutribiotic Rice Protein Powder + 2 Tbsp Flax
- Sweet Potato
- Collard Greens + Spinach + Spring Mix
- Olive Oil
- Chocolate Coconut Pudding
I am ready to head into day 21! Three weeks down....
