Who doesn’t like breakfast for dinner? Especially when you don’t feel like cooking, as breakfast tends to be super duper easy to fix. I had some veggies that I needed to use before they went bad and I had some tofu. I considered my fave, red thai curry, but I would need to stop at the store to get coconut milk and basil so instead, voila! tofu scramble!
I somehow wound up only using green veggies and I put some soy sausage chunks in it, so in my head I was calling it “green ‘eggs’ and ‘ham.'” Where would I be without Dr. Seuss?
I seasoned the scramble with a few squirts of Braggs liquid aminos, 2 tbsp nutri yeast, 1/4 tsp turmeric, 1/4 tsp chili powder, and a little bit of garlic powder for good measure. The recipe I use calls for curry powder but I really dislike Indian curry! So I try to get creative each time. I don’t know how the above mixes for a decent taste, but it does. I don’t question it.
Leftovers means I’ll be having breakfast for LUNCH tomorrow, too! Man. I just really freaking love breakfast.
Although I wasn’t in the mood for it, I (begrudgingly) worked out after work today. Since it was a running “off” day, I did the elliptical. My heart rate never exceeded 160 and I was pouring sweat, so I find it really interesting how much higher my heart rate gets when I run. I was definitely sweating more today than I do when I run. I’m no doctor, but I find that bizarre.
I was planning on doing some weights but right when I got off the machine, the gym was inundated with meatheads. It’s usually pretty quiet in there when I go. Most people who work out there work out during lunch, so I rarely see more than two others while I’m there after work. It’s quite small so if there are three men hogging the weights, it’s just uncomfortable. I’m self-conscious in the gym as it is and it takes most of my willpower to talk myself into using the treadmill in the presence of others…so weights? Forget about it. So I did the lat pull down machine and bailed. I’m hoping to get more done tomorrow–fewer people are usually there on Fridays. I really need to learn to not make excuses like I just did. I should just get in there and do my thang. Who cares what other people think? I just hate the judgment that goes on at the gym. I’m overweight, but at least I’m doing something about it. I don’t need your judgmental glare and I certainly don’t need you peering over to my machine to see what level/incline/time/calories burned I have under my belt. People are so nosy.
I have to visit the doc soon. I’m eager to see if my blood pressure has lowered after 2 months of veganism and 3 weeks of steady exercise. I’d love to see my numbers. My blood pressure is always a little high when I see the doc (thanks white coat syndrome), but there have been a few times where it SKYROCKETED and my doc was really concerned. I’d like to see where I’m at now. I should probably buy one of those handy-dandy home blood pressure tests.
