Day 8: Coming Full Circle

Today we were back to day 1 exercises.  I felt like I didn't get as much of a burn out of these.  Maybe because it was not my first workout in a year, like it was last week.  I was actually able to scrape myself off the ground after the workout, which was a refreshing change from the last time I did chest and back.  I'm still feeling a little sore, but I can actually lift my hands to my head, so that's good.

Menu for the day:

Banana-blackberry smoothie
Boca soysage links

Disappointed when looking at the Boca box that their sausage links aren't vegan either.  Another disappointment.

Peanut chocolate Cliff bar (my new obsession)

Chef Salad w/ Amy's Green Goddess dressing
Veggie Soup

Snack 2:
1/4 cup cashews

Vegan sausage
Zucchini and potato bake
Steamed asparagus
1 cup soy milk

Wow, this sausage was great.  It was one of the first times that I've thought that it tasted on par with pork sausage.  Throw a little spicy mustard on top, and you got yourself a delicious main dish.  Still dryer than pork, but definitely tasty, and healthy.  This guy packed in lots of protein, and very little fat.

  1. Field Roast makes excellent dinner sausages too in case you never had the chance to try them. I'm partial to the smoked apple sage one myself, especially when it's topped with a dollop of Colman's spicy mustard!

    So I was waiting to see if you would keel over from doing a high intensity workout on a vegan diet but decided that I needed to stop making excuses and start being proactive about my health and fitness. I started P90 today. I think I was a bit too sedentary the last six months to do P90X but I will still be following your progress to see how the eating plan is working for you.
