Vegan Thursday this week became a Vegan Wednesday. You saw my breakfast smoothie yesterday. I also ate a salad pita with spinach, broccoli, carrots, and hummus for lunch. Snackies were grapes and blueberries. It was delish and made my tummy happy! Irish made dinner for us last night. He made his famous (to me) veggie fajitas with brown rice, black beans, black eyed peas, corn, and other goodies. To my knowledge they are vegan, but I get to relax while he makes them so I can't be positive. That pampering makes my heart happy :)
I started taking just a B-12 pill this morning instead of my usual B-complex this morning thanks to a little info I learned from Candid RD. Between the B-complex and my regular multi, I was getting dangerously close to the upper limit for folate before I even popped any food in my mouth! Vegans already have a hard time with B-12 deficiency, and I'd say I eat around 90% vegan at this point. Too much folate can cause B-12 deficiency among other issues, which can cause a nasty anemia problem, so I figure I better set things straight!
Sleep won over exercise again this morning because the no-longer sore muscles felt so divine resting peacefully in bed. Not a good excuse, but it sure sounded good as I rolled over and grabbed another few zzz's. So instead of an exercise update, I have a little food for thought:
People fail because they trade what they want the most for what they want right now.This profound thought came to me this evening in the form of a misplaced post-it note. Obviously I needed to get this message badly! I often get a bad case of choice-itis when I have to make really big decisions and a "right answer" isn't clear to me. That was my sentiment when I found this note. Now if only I could get clear on what I want the most in this situation that's causing the mental struggle.
What do you want the most? Do you consciously keep it at the top of your priority list to avoid trading it for the right now? Do you find this contradicts or unites with the concept of living in the moment? Do you wish I'd ask an easier question? What does your loved one do to help you feel loved and appreciated?
