    I wouldn't object to some kind of lean breakfast sausage, though. Something I can put in the microwave.
    yeah it wasn't about the bacon, it was instead of protein powder do a different source of protein.

    I really should just throw that shit away. But it was $15 and I hate wasting things.

    sale it or give it to someone? you probably know someone who uses that stuff. Personally I like the chocolate protein shakes, if I remember to buy them and its more because i don't eat enough in a day so figure that would bump up my caloric intake.

    Have you tried mixing it into smoothies? Apparently, you can make pancakes out of it, but that sounds kind of wacky. I'd try searching for different uses for protein powder and see if anything good comes up.

    Snacks:
    • Lightly salted almonds

    Dinners:
    Try some regular chocolate milk after your workouts. I thought it was kind of strange at first but it really is the perfect thing to have.

    I like to rock n' roll all night and *part* of every day. I usually have errands... I can only rock from like 1-3.

    So! Turns out Trader Joe's has a no questions asked, full refund return policy. So I did that!

    You know, I'd read about this, but was a bit skeptical at first. My initial thought is, would it be enough to fill you up? Would you want to eat a (relatively) big meal before your workout, to keep you from getting hungry after?

    Trader Joe's is the BEST.

    If you are working out in the morning I would just eat a normal breakfast afterwards, as long as you get some protein. I've never been super particular about pre/post workout food. As long as it's healthy, you are hydrated, and you get some protein afterwards I don't think it's a huge deal. If you aren't eating a meal before workout I would say some nuts and lots of water is probably sufficient. If you are hungrier, add some fruit. I think the chocolate milk idea is just a way to get some carbs and protein quick, not really meant to be a meal.

    Exercise:
    - Went for a jog yesterday, even though I don't normally workout Sundays. The sun was out and it was almost 60 degrees so I couldn't resist. I even made myself jog UP the hills, instead of just down. Usually I end up walking up because I hit them at the end of my run.
    - Yoga was brilliant this morning. It was one of those days where I could definitely tell I've made progress. I was able to hold a bind for the full duration of my side angle pose, usually I can only go about half.

    ^ Bind

    Food:
    - I was on retreat most of the weekend so I pretty much just had to eat what was in front of me. I think I did fairly well though. I passed on a cinnamon roll , and other various bread products and potatoes in favor of fruits and veggies. I did end up eating a waffle and ice cream though. I did a lot more walking, hopefully that helped compensate.
    - Today I am making chili with ground turkey, a little bit of chorizo, pinto beans, green bell-pepper, tomatoes, and yellow onion. I will most likely top it with avocado. I'll probably end up eating this for about 3-4 meals and then freezing whatever is left.

    This isn't really food or exercise related, but it's definitely health related. I'm committing to mindfulness, or some form of meditation for 10 minutes every day. Basically this will be me existing in silence for 10 minutes either doing some type of breathing or muscle relaxations, or a mindfulness technique that involves focusing on something I've mentally constructed. On yoga days this is built in because we always end with a 10 minute relaxation.

    @Showbread We should definitely coordinate that meditation thing. Or rather, I'll tag along. We'll see if I have the discipline for it...

    Nice work on the rest, btw That chili sounds amazing.

    Side note: Earlier today I mentioned to one of my account teams, at work, that I was starting to eat healthier and go to the gym more. And one of the team members (who's about 27, while I'm 24) looks over at me and goes "Aw, you're becoming an adult!" and starts to talk about how she gained all this weight in college and had to get back into running/eating well once she graduated. And I had no idea what to say, so I didn't say anything.

    Really though. "Becoming an adult"?? My parents don't exercise at all (except walking) and are totally out of shape, and they didn't used to eat very well. I went, at 5'6", from 160-165 in middle school to 150 in high school and 145 in college, just by getting over bad eating habits and walking a lot more. (Never did sports in school.) I've gone down from 145 to 140 in the past month or two, thanks to eating better, and smaller portions -- which I taught myself, and had no "adult" precedent for.

    Anyway. That was frustrating and demoralizing. But whatever.

    Ugh. That is frustrating. If anything my eating/exercising habits where probably best when I was 16. But, I'm probably happier with my body now due to maturity and just having a more hourglass like distribution.
