Well, yesterday was day one of my month-long return to veganism.
It wasn't an incredibly auspicious start, seeing as it was all fast/junky food, BUT I'm not going to nitpick, and today's menu is going to be much healthier, anyway.
Yesterday's breakfast consisted of: mini wheats and raisin bran with almond milk (I had a childhood craving I simply couldn't deny)
And lunch and dinner was smushed into one affair at 4 o'clock, and it was: sesame tofu and veggies (quite tasty) and cold sesame noodles (some of the worst I've ever had. Won't be tempted to play that game again.)
C'est tout, c'est ca.
At some point I'll elaborate on the why's, what's and how's of my return to vegan eating, for now, just daily recaps.
Happy eating, folks!

So, turns out Thomas Jefferson and I had some pretty similar ideas about how to make life a little smoother. I stumbled across this poster (available on etsy if you follow the link) and, apart from loving the design of it, since I am ALL about words, am on board with all ten of these bad boys.
Obviously, the famous "never put off until tomorrow what you can do today" is golden, but "never spend your money before you have earned it" is something I remind myself probably every day. "Never trouble another for what you can do yourself" is my life motto. I'm this close to having it stamped on my forehead.
"Pride costs more than hunger, thirst and cold" is one that I completely agree with, and could probably do with incorporating into my life a bit more. And, of course, "we seldom repent for having eaten too little" is both true and catchy, and I'm surprised that it is not all up in the Tumblr/Fitblr universe. Maybe it is.
At any rate, Thomas Jefferson sounds like a man I could've had a chat with. The guy even waited to have an affair with Sally Hemings' til after he became a widower. In History, that's stand up stuff.
Happy Monday, all.
BTW: Survived hot yoga yesterday! It wasn't as hot as I was expecting, but it was Yin, so the stretching was woooonderful. Plus, afterward my sister and I ate incredibly tasty Mexican food, in the type of teensy tiny restaurant with adjacent table of snotty lawyers (sorry, non-snotty lawyers, I know you do exist, even in New York) complaining loudly, that makes me remember why I like the city. Sometimes : )

About to do hot yoga for the first time ever, and yoga in an actual class for the first time since I was 14.
I'm a wee bit nervous.
But, this afternoon I got my roommate to do yoga with me, and she hates it, so I'm proud of her, and if she can do it, I can do it. Plus, I'm going with my sister, who, though she ups the intimidation factor, is awesome, and I like to see her face.
Plus, I've been doing an actual practice every day for the last four days, which, while not a remotely long time, especially given that for years I started every morning with some yoga, has me more limber than if I tried this a week ago.
So, with any luck, I'll check back in tomorrow, with tales of success. Or at least, tales of not passing out, which in my book is a wild success : )
