Time to get organized and stay organized. By tomorrow I should have my movers confirmed...and that means...if all goes according to plan... YIKES... I'm outta here in 24 days. *gulp*
You should see the lists I have on the go. The goal this week is to get those cleaned up and as simplified (yet detailed) as possible.
Last night I wrote up this week's plan...so I know what room to sort on which day, which workout I should be doing, and have a good idea what to make to eat. The food will probably change a bit here and there, but everything else pretty much needs to stay the way it is.
I will allow myself to skip a workout if needed though...because things will rear their heads but I can't very well give up packing or eating!!
Today was a nice, easy start...coffeeeeee with soy milk...
A refreshing green smoothie to help clean away the weekend junk.
I picked up some Maca Root Powder at Bulk Barn the other night to give it a try. It doesn't smell too good, but once blended up I couldn't really tell it was there. It's considered a superfood powerhouse so it is definitely worth a bit of an odd odor.
From Wikipedia: "The nutritional value of dried maca root is high, similar to cereal grains such as rice and wheat. It contains 60% carbohydrates, 10% protein, 8.5% dietary fiber, and 2.2% fats. Maca is rich in essential minerals, especially selenium, calcium, magnesium, and iron, and includes fatty acids including linolenic acid, palmitic acid, and oleic acids, and 19 amino acids, as well as polysaccharides."
In the KA today: ice, 1/2 frozen banana, 4 chunks fresh pineapple, 2 big handfuls organic baby spinach, 1 tsp maca, 1 heaping tsp Amazing Meal, 1 tsp flax meal, about 2/3 cup UVAB.
Alongside this bevvie I made some deliciously chewy sprouted grain toast...with natural peanut butter & Supercrack.
It's a quiet work day because of the US Memorial Day holiday so I burned through a fair amount of work this morning...which worked out well because I received a last minute call to meet Cosette and Sarah for afternoon coffee at Two if by Sea.
Who am I to turn down a fabulous cafe au lait?! Especially since it's Sarah's bday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY SARAH!!!
Sadly (thankfully!!) they were out of chocolate croissants. I definitely need another one (or ten) of those before I leave town.
When I got home it was way past lunch time so I went straight to the kitchen to whip up my salad...
Romaine, tomatoes, cucumber, celery (totally underrated!), and yellow peppers.
Dressed with Renee's Spring Italian dressing...and topped with 1% cottage cheese. Did you know that cottage cheese contains a WHOPPING 15 grams of protein per 1/2 cup serving? Score.
Added even more protein in the form of hummus...
Served with Mary's Gone Crackers! Nom!!! Love these addictive seedy little things...
The last few hours have been spent working and scrutinizing my initial road trip plans. Halifax to Victoria. Just me and my cat. It's going to be a loooooong 11 days...totally scary...and totally exciting.
This once in a lifetime adventure needs a name.... any ideas??
