Day 15: A Long Day

This day was a bit of a struggle for myself.  I was working at the library today after work, so I didn't get home until after 7:30, and on top of that, it was storming outside.  Nothing makes me feel like just crawling under the covers and doing nothing like a thunderstorm.  Alas, it was not to be.  After making dinner, eating, and cleaning up, it was already 9 PM, a great time to just turn in.  Instead of turning in, we turned it up, and busted out a set of Kenpo X.

Fortunately, this is a light day of workout.  Just one hour of calisthenics, and even when I bring it with full force, I don't seem to feel as tired afterward as I do with legs and arm workouts.  So it was a good day for kickboxing.  After peeling ourselves up and showering, it was bedtime.  Not a bad day, but a busy one.  When you go from waking up, to eating, to work, to more work, to making dinner, to working out, to bed, it makes for a long day.  There was a bright spot.  I found that REI sells Cliff Builder's Bars, and if you buy 12 or more, they're only $1.68.  Still kind of pricey for my mid-morning snack, but they are so tasty and chock full of protein that I don't mind.


Protein shake (banana and blueberry)
2 soysage patties

Cliff Bar (peanut and chocolate)

Tomato soup
"bologna" flatbread

Lunch was really tasty.  Even after subtracting most of the olive oil from the soup recipe, it was still flavorful and filling.  The flatbread I made with some greek style bread that I found has 6g of protein in each piece, a nice little find.  Top that with a half package of "bologna", some tomato, cucumber, and veganaise, and it makes for a tasty sandwich.

Snack 2:
1/4 cup cashews

Tofu stir fry
cup soy milk
