So apparently I’m not very good at the “staying on schedule” thing, but at least I remembered…? And hey, I have been keeping track and photographing my meals! That counts, yeah? I’m counting it.

I scratched off another item on my bucket list today. Nothing exciting – in fact, I think most people would call it “normal” or “boring”. But it was something that I wanted to do and I did it, and I think that’s what’s important in the end. Not that your goal is “exciting” or “big”, but that you wanted it and then you got it. I held back on doing a bunch of “little” things because I was afraid of what other people thought about it, and recently I’ve come to realize that I’m tired of it. I spent my entire teens and early-20s being the “responsible one”, the dependable one, the – in my opinion – boring one. I don’t really regret missing out on those cliche stupid young adult moments, but I will regret it if I continue to miss out before I reach 30. I’ve been jokingly calling it my Midlife Crisis.

Yeah, I’ve gotten some disapproval. My parents certainly don’t know what’s going on. But all in all? I’ve been pleasantly surprised by how much support I get from the people around me, and how much I don’t care about the disapproval I get. It goes to show you that, once you get past your hurtle of fear, you regret far less than you think you would.

Anyway, enough of the mindless delve into life philosophy. Time for the food! 🙂

Breakfast

Chia seed pudding with chocolate protein powder and blueberries

Lunch

BBQ tofu and smashed potatoes with avocado aoli

Mexican chocolate chia seed pudding

(YES, I had the same thing for breakfast/lunch two days in a row. I WORK okay? I don’t have time for variety!)

Dinner

Campbell’s hamburger & veggie soup

2 Mom’s homemade eggrolls

(It’s at this point that I realize that having no dinner plans is going to screw me over. I’m going to have to figure out dinners from now on – hopefully ones that are light but filling.)

Breakfast

Chia seed breakfast bowl w/blueberries

Lunch

Jumbo stuffed shells w/spinach – Deviated from the recipe a little bit by adding leftover Parmesan. I couldn’t resist!

Chocolate peanut butter avocado pudding… Only had a little bit of this, it was a tad too grassy for my tastes. But at least I tried to have a healthy dessert?

Dinner

2 Tuna salad sandwiches, made with vegan mayonnaise and homemade sweet pickles. Yeah yeah, I know that the quantity is not good, but I have a weakness okay?

All in all, despite the dinner screwups… I’m rather proud of myself. I’ve had the worst craving for a 5 Guys hamburger since Monday, but I’ve resisted! I’m going out of town this weekend and I’m going to be gorging myself on all sorts of unhealthy restaurant food, so I figured that holding out would be best. Hopefully I can keep up this trend!!
