Not completely back in black yet is what I mean.  Feeling better (thanks to the love of my little fluff muffins, pictured here) but I’m not quite 100% yet, so I don’t want to go to the gym tonight because I don’t want to infect others (I really hope I will be a role model for others in this way).  I did the P-90X Ab Ripper DVD last night, so at least my abs are not suffering too much from this forced hiatus. And it makes me feel better to imagine myself with ripped abs even if my face is a mess from all the nose blowing. (I’m almost 40 anyways, and a good plan as you age is always to have such a smokin’ body that nobody even notices what’s happening to your face).  I may do another home workout tonight.  I’ll let you know tomorrow.  The point is, consistency is SO important in body building.  I have a good momentum going and I don’t want to mess anything up.  At least I’m getting plenty of protein.  Here’s what I ate yesterday:

  • Breakfast (44 g protein): smoothie with bananas, frozen cherries, blueberries, 2 oz wheat grass (2 g protein), 1 packet of frozen acai with added protein (7 g protein), 1.5 cups soy milk (10 g protein), 1 scoop Vega Sport Performance Protein (20 g protein), 1/2 scoop Vega Complete Whole Food Optimizer (7 g protein)
  • Snack: 2 slices toasted tofu bread (24 g protein) with 2 heaping tbsp peanut butter (7 g protein)
  • Lunch (71 g protein): 2 cups spelt spirals (40 g protein) topped with Earth Balance vegan butter, basil, garlic, oregano, lemon pepper and nutritional yeast (5 g protein) and a side of 2 cups of cooked spinach (26 g protein)
  • Snack: nori seaweed snack pack (1 g protein)
  • Snack (44 g protein): smoothie with bananas, frozen cherries, blueberries, 2 oz wheat grass (2 g protein), 1 packet of frozen acai with added protein (7 g protein), 1.5 cups soy milk (10 g protein), 1 scoop Vega Sport Performance Protein (20 g protein), 1/2 scoop Vega Complete Whole Food Optimizer (7 g protein)
  • Dinner: Butternut squash with Earth Balance vegan butter and lemon pepper and 2 cups quinoa (36 g protein) and 1/2 pack smoked tempeh (15 g protein)
  • Total 235 grams of protein for the day!!!

      Soy is absolutely not harmful for anyone’s development. Please read the article I wrote on this site called “Soy, Oh Boy!”
