It was a snowy and cold weekend, but cozy inside. Mya spent all day and night sledding and snowboarding. She got a snowboard from Santa and this was her first attempt at using it. It took her about 1/2 hour of trial and error falls before she found her balance. By the end of the day she was going off small ramps and people were asking Andy how old she was when she learned to snowboard. He said their jaws dropped when he said today was her first time. She sure takes after him! She finally came in for the night at 7:15pm. She was so exhausted she was asleep by 7:45 and slept until 6:30 am.
I, however, was not feeling well yesterday. I took some Advil on an empty stomach and it bothered me all day. Because I was feeling ill, I allowed myself some indulgences. Lots of tea and toast. I have been laying off bread, but I made up for it this weekend. I probably ate 8 pieces of Rye between yesterday and today. Good thing I plan on a super strict cleanse for the next few weeks. This weekend was the first that I veered off my New Years plan. But, like I said, I am starting new tomorrow. I am making a new fitness vision board today and starting a new workout routine tomorrow. I am going to take pictures and measurements and really track my progress. Bikini season will be here before you know it…don’t let the snow fool you!
So since it was an indulgent weekend, I decided I would create some delicious roast “beef” sandwiches and use up the remainder of gravy that I made earlier in the week. I love the Tofurky Roast “Beef”. It is a perfect way to enjoy and old favorite and still be a good vegan! My gravy was even better since it was in the fridge a few days. I warmed it up on the stove, added a pack of roast “beef” slices to it, and then let it simmer. The seeded rye was so fresh and soft. It smelled so good. I slathered it with some Vegenaise and horseradish. Then, I laid a piece of vegan mozzarella on top. Once the “beef” and gravy were nice and hot, I spooned it on top the the bread, cheese and sauce. It was heavenly. Air popped popcorn topped with nutritional yeast and Mrs. dash was our crunchy side. Great lunch. Now I am off to make my vision board and start planning my meals and workouts for the week.
