It's so annoying when people go on diets and health kicks and won't shut up about it. I just wanna eat my Doritos in peace without hearing/reading about someone else being obsessed over their weight.

So, I'm going to try my hardest not to talk to much about this Beachbody's Reset we are doing. It's just that it is consuming my life right now and I can't not talk about it. Just a little. And I promise to try not to be too annoying about it.

It's 21 days and it's annoying. But, it's also good and I think it's completely changing the way I think about food. I hate meal planning, I hate cooking and I hate worrying about food. I wish I could just take a pill and feel full. (Turns out you can, but those are really bad for you.) But this Reset is kinda changing all that.

I'm spending no less then 3 hours in the kitchen every day now. Preparing dinner and lunch and breakfast for the next day. I'm chopping fruits and veggies like crazy. I'm washing and preparing quinoa. I'm adding fresh herbs to food and using coconut oil like I know what I'm doing. I hated it 2 days ago, but I'm starting to get used to it actually. (Maybe like it even, but don't tell Tony otherwise he won't help me :)!)

The problem is that this food prep and planning is so new to me that I it takes me longer to figure it all out and actually do it. I'm constantly planning a day ahead and making sure I have all the food and then worrying - how am I gonna fit the prep time in?? But it's working out and we are eating healthy food that's good for us. And for me, that's new!

Here's dinner from Tuesday night. Bev made these sushi rolls from scratch and they were AMAZING! (Also, I wonder how many shots of my jaw unhinging can I really have on this blog??)

The rolls had Tempeh in them and I don't even know what that is, but baked crispy it was really good.

Last night we had stir-fry veggies, cucumber and tomato salad and quinoa. I couldn't even finish the salad.

Miles wasn't impressed, so I gave him chicken nuggets instead. But only because he's been refusing to eat for the last 3 days and I was desperate for him to eat something.
Rocky is desperately waiting for Miles to drop something!

Things are about to get really hard next week when we go mostly vegan. So, we'll see how we do then. But for now, I think I'm building some good habits that I really needed. So at least there's that! Oh, and I lost 3 lbs.

But I promise not to get too crazy! As soon as we're done I plan on making my absolute favorite Pumpkin Soup as a reward. It's seriously the most amazing soup ever and I make it every year for the holidays!

But I will definitely be making the sushi rolls again. And the veggies. But maybe not the plain quinoa though... that was terrible...

  1. Yum - stir fry veggies are my favorite! The cucumber salad looks amazing! Good for you guys :) But I'll admit the only thing that really made my mouth water in this post was the mention of Doritos earlier on ...
