YU+ME=Clean, DAY 1

Well, it was sure to be a good day since it started off with YU's "popped amaranth crunch," and a good day it was.  I think I was so jazzed to reel in my diet and get "clean" that I managed to wake up less lethargic than I have been recently...Ahhh, the power of intention!

The only thing I wasn't able to do today that I wanted to was go for a bike ride, that's alright, I had a killer ride yesterday at Heil Ranch

So, here I sit at approximately 10pm feeling pretty good about the day: )  Here I also sit with another serving of my precious popped amaranth.  I threw a twist on it and added carob chips which have melted oh so nicely; )

I had no temptations to eat anything not vegan or with gluten...Oops, that is soooo not true!  When I was at Whole Foods, I almost went for a couple little chocolate graham cracker bunnies that were being sampled!  Fret not though, I stayed my vegan course and got what I was after at the store, which was some edamame dip and some nut thin crackers.

Below you will find a little food and activity log for the day.

Also, I want to note my energy level so I will gauge it on a 1-10 scale.  "1" being I couldn't get out of bed, "5" I was able to get through the day fine and maybe some low impact exercise, "10" I had so much energy Obama me to replace solar; )

Finally, I wanted to record my quality of sleep.  Again a 1-10 deal.  "1" I couldn't go to sleep or stay asleep, "5" I may have woken up a little but not too restless, "10" I never remember waking and I was totally ready to get up to start the day!

Food log
Popped Amaranth Crunch
2 Apples
1 Banana
Decaf coffee with Hazelnut coconut creamer  (There you go Chantel: )
Edamame Dip
Nut thins/crackers
Soy "Jerky"(I just had to see....and was glad I did)
Water (only 1.5 nalgene's worth, need too bump that up)

No formal workout today, but I did give massage for 5 hours



I think that wraps it up for today!  I'm sure tomorrow will be another awesome day!  I will definitely shoot for a new recipe...I'm thinking Salty Sweet Kale Chips !!
