{Semi} Wordless Wednesday: A Rainy Race

A few pictures from the very wet, very rainy Fuego 5K this past Saturday. Paul finished in 21:12 and I finished in 39:40. We were both super excited with the results especially given the circumstances!

{Semi} Wordless Wednesday: FOOD

I was asked to take pictures of all the new recipes I tried out over the holiday weekend. I failed miserably. I only took a few pictures. Sorry. So I will share what I do have along with some pictures of my kitchen so you can see what I eat and how I stock my fridge and pantry.

20120111-072230.jpg

Veggie Burgers with Kale, Cabbage, and Leek Grill Mix

Vegan Enchiladas with Cilantro Avocado Cream Sauce and Spicy Rainbow Rice and Bean Salad

Our freezer is filled with frozen soups, Ezekiel and Alvarado St breads, frozen veggies and veggie burgers, sweet treats: chocolate almond milk ice cream and some no-bake frozen chocolate treats, some frozen bean balls and some flours and seeds.

20120111-073503.jpg

Fridge staples: tons of fruit and veggies tucked away in the crisper, coconut milk creamer, earth balance, Daiya vegan cheese, Ezekiel and Alvarado St. tortillas, salsa, almond butter, hemp seeds, and of course leftovers.

Pantry: rolled oats, chia seeds, lentils, quinoa and quinoa pasta, rice noodles, brown rice, almond butter and almonds, herbal teas, and my snacks: wasabi soybeans and vegan cookies 🙂

Our spice cabinet is filled with a ton a different spices and an ever growing supply of baking essentials. We have organic (vegan friendly) sugars, agave nectar, brown rice syrup, vegan chocolate chips, nutritional yeast and a various types of hot sauces.

Keeping a well stocked fridge and pantry has really made cooking and meal planning so much easier.

{Semi} Wordless Wednesday: New Clothes and New Numbers

20111228-084533.jpg

New work outfit from the Gap: top size Large and trousers size 12 regular! Woo hoo for new sizes and for finally being able to shop at the Gap. I don’t think I have since we entered the 2000’s. Also, I would also like to mention I started this year wearing 3X or 26/28 tops from plus size stores and am now wearing large tops from regular stores. Pants went from size 24s to size 12s. It’s pretty amazing to me when I look at those numbers. I can’t believe I’ve come so far.

20111228-084709.jpg

My current body fat percentage is 32.8% – yay- but the really exciting number is what’s below. My BMI. Which as of this morning is 29.9 which means I am no longer obese! Yay! I am now in the overweight category! I know, being overweight might seem like a weird thing to be excited about but for me it is. I started this year Obese- Category 3, which is the worst, and am now down to the overweight category. Next stop- average/normal/healthy…not really sure what it’s called. I just know my goal is for my BMI to be below 25.

Changing of the Guard

20111207-061219.jpg

It was time to replace my scale after a few weeks of being somewhat unreliable, i.e. not turning on, not detecting weight/pressure, and although it isn’t dead completely I just couldn’t deal with the uncertainty anymore.

It’s Freaking Cold Outside

20111207-061442.jpg

It was 28 degrees when I left my house this morning. See, it gets cold in Texas.

Car O’ Ice

My Green Monster

20111207-061616.jpg

Since I finished off my tub of Amazing Grass Chocolate Superfood I decided to try out some of their other flavors. Today I used Amazing Grass Orange Dreamsicle Superfood (which I was kind of hesitant to buy) in my smoothie and it was fabulous!

It’s the Little Things

20111207-061819.jpg

Thirty-three is not only my age it’s also my favorite number and whenever it pops up I take as a sign if good things to come. This morning I was happy because I had 33 emails!

My Fitness Tree

20111207-061951.jpg

How exciting! The base of the tree is covered! Yay!

Hope you have a fabulous day and thanks for reading!

{Semi} Wordless Wednesday: Shopping

Every time I go shopping people ask me to post pictures of what I buy. Sometimes this is difficult because I don’t go home and try everything on and take pictures. Usually what ends up happening is I take pictures as I wear something. Luckily the past two times I’ve gone shopping I went by myself and I have photos of everything I tried on because I was sending them to Paul for his opinion. So here are some pics of what I’ve bought recently.

A new coat

20111130-062217.jpg

This top but in a different color

20111130-062253.jpg

These sweaters

Picture from home- not the best- of the ‘large’ shirt I unknowingly bought from Old Navy.

20111130-062505.jpg

It looks better in natural light

20111130-062537.jpg

Also, did I show you this? It’s the Arcade Fire shirt I bought at ACL. We bought a men’s large and a few weeks ago I was able to fit in it finally. Yay!

20111130-062715.jpg

Oh, in case you were wondering if I went out for Black Friday; yes I did. But I only went to two stores- Whole Foods and Bed Bath and Beyond. I bought 12 bottles of Kombucha and a pair of Toms from Whole Foods and 4 boxes of Keurig K-cups from BB&B. Not your typical BF purchases but I was pretty excited!
