What I Eat In a Day for Vegan Weight Loss

What I Eat In A Day 3-1-2019

Here we go ! OK. Bad news, good news. I sucked at my weight loss this last week. I drank more alcohol than I should have and I didn’t eat very well either. This time of year marks the first anniversary of the death of my mother and her birthday. I celebrated / mourned the loss.¬† I’m going to go easy on myself for this one. I’ll weigh in next week and see the damage / results then.

I’m back on track and I have made my commitment even stronger. So there’s the good news:

I have firmed up my commitment to daily exercise including Yoga, 30 minute walk and a wight /¬†calisthenic routine. I’m 59 and want to finally get into good shape. I see that I need to firm up my belly and thighs. Squats and core exercises are on the fitness menu. I love watching Yoga w/ Adriene on Youtube
