#FitReaders: May 8th, 2015 Check-In

#FitReaders: I wish I would have gotten more done this week yet I'm still happy with what I was able to do. It's going to be harder next week with my Summer class, but I'll try my best to keep up with my workouts. I also want to make sure I run next week which I haven't done in a while. 

This week I tried out doing a vegan day which was interesting because I don't know how to cook. I didn't plan as well as I should have and I think it'll go better next time. I did learn how to make spaghetti which is actually easier than I expected. I know with further days like this I'll learn to cook, prepare meals, and plan meals for myself like an adult. 

experimented with a smoothie for my breakfast: two bananas, one mango, almond milk, and spinach. It tastes better than my last smoothie I tried making (raspberries have too many seeds...) and it tasted good but, it was too cold for me and felt a little weird. I think I'll just stick to eating the actual fruit and vegetables when I plan my food. I've become better with eating healthy and more for breakfast which I'm really happy about. So this is a great learning experience. I don't really like fruits and vegetables so I have to experiment and get used to eating healthier so this is a great way to do that. Hopefully during the Summer I can add on one more vegan day.

  1. You are doing a great job living healthier. It is so important to find out what works for you and what doesn't. I haven't tried a smoothie for breakfast- but I have been wanting to for a while. I have been trying to be healthier too. I have been making in advance crust less mini quiches with egg beaters, broccoli, low moisture mozzarella cheese and some pepper. I only have to heat them in the microwave in the morning, so it is nice and a good way to start the day. You inspired me to do more walking (doing about 20 or more minutes 4-5 times a week) and to drink more water (I am drinking 1-2 more glasses a day than I used to). So thanks so much for helping to motivate me. :)

    Good luck when your summer class starts!

    1. That's a great idea to plan ahead with your breakfast. Those quiches sound really yummy (:
      I want to try to do the same with lunch and dinner because I feel like I have breakfast down pat.
      That's a fantastic amount of walking. I need to do mroe myself. I'm happy to say I feel stronger especially with my legs so I need to keep up with that. That's wonderful about your water intake. Having to write down how much water I drink has really helped motivate me to drink more. I was the same way with my water although there were days I would hardly drink any water or drink no water at all which wasn't good. Happy to help motivate you. You are pretty motivational yourself with your walking. I could learn a thing or two from you (:

      Thank you!

  2. Nice job!! The smoothie sounds pretty good to me. I'm planning on a strawberry and almond milk one tomorrow :D Some fruits are definitely better in those than others. Glad your first vegan attempt went fairly well :D

    1. Thanks for the support Anna! Your smoothie sounds delicious although I wish strawberries didn't have so many seeds. I prefer strawberry ice cream instead (;

    1. Exactly! I really need to see how I can make certain fruits and vegetables work for me if I'm going to be healthier. Haha, thanks so much for the support (:

  4. I love that you are trying so many new things! I am just now starting to do this too. So I have been trying to be healthier and more active but it has been hard being consistent. Anyway... you are doing a great job! Keep it up. :D

    1. It's been hard to be consistent for me too. As long as you try that's all you can ask for yourself. Thank you!

    1. Yes, and as bloggers too writing up posts. It can't be good for my circulation. Luckily you and I have been doing pretty well with being healthier. Good luck to you in the future months with your health + fitness (:
