PB & Jade

According to this site (the tape measurement method), I actually have 23.56 % body fat which is in the “fitness” level of the body fat range chart thingy. Awesome. However, I want to make it down to 19% body fat. This will put me into the athlete category. Unfortunately, walking pneumonia has prevented me from doing any hardcore cardio. I have been doing yoga from Yoga Download, though.

Goals are exciting, no?

I bet myself that as soon as I lose 20 lbs, I’m going to get my new tattoo.

I fell off the vegan train. This means I’m just going to have to get back on it!

I’m going to be attempting to follow the Eat-to-Live plan. This means lots of beans and veggies and not so much carbs. I think this is a great place to show off my meal plans.

All of this is coming around a time where I need change. I gotta get back to my healthy weight. I also need to fit into my jeans.

So for week of 12/27

Sunday 12/27

Breakfast: Veggies and tofu scramble

Snack: Seitan slices

Lunch: Chickpea Gumbo

Tuesday 12/29

Beyond that, I plan on doing a mix of the above. i am also getting myself a gym membership.

Here’s hoping for some change!

So I just wanted to talk about how awesome my J-Face is. We celebrated our one year anniversary a little less than two weeks ago and we’re still going strong. He has been so thoughtful of my veganism that he will even try new restaurants such as this local Mediterranean restaurant where I had lots of nom noms. It was there that I realized that I love hummus way too much. Maybe this blog should be renamed “Hummus & Jade” Hah.

This is my 19th post and I have about 3 hours left to complete my quota. I am lame and did not do anything festive because I’ve been in the studios with the Dallas Black Dance Theater and sooo have not had time to cook. Wah. So I’ll just present you with food porn.

Vegan French Toast (Ezekiel Bread, mmm) and Tempeh Bacon

I feel like I am cheating by making all of these random tiny posts, but I don’t care. I just wanted to add that celery + salsa = delicious low carb, low calorie win.

In other news, I’ve started rehearsals for my choreography project. I am super excited and now super busy. Heh.
