Random Ramblings

I've been meaning to post this blog since Sunday. Life has come in between me and my blog once again...One-der land didn't last very long. Yep, I've gotten on the scale every day after and every day it has said 201.6. I'm not going to worry though. I'm doing everything I'm supposed to be doing. I emailed my macros coach and she told me a true plateau could last 2-3 weeks. I'm going to keep weighing and logging my food and getting in my workouts and hopefully in a few weeks my weight will drop again. 

I'm feeling really good, except for this headache I've had since Friday. I'm worried because the last time this happened it turned out I needed a root canal. I went to the dentist yesterday but she didn't see anything bad enough to need a root canal. I was relieved but now I need to figure out why I have a headache. She said it could be from my root canal that is still healing. It's always something.

This guy. He's doing a lot better than before. He is improving in his training. The trainer did tell me last night that she doesn't know if we can ever have another dog. Broke my heart right in two. My fiancé and I have always agreed that he'd get his boxer and then after that I'd be able to get a cute little white fur ball. But now because Vader has anxiety around other dogs that may not be possible. 

Like I said, I'm sticking to my macros. I haven't even really wanted to go over my macros because I have so much flexibility with the numbers I'm working with. I don't feel deprived at all. If anything, most days I feel like I'm eating too much. My fiancé made this for dessert the other night and I had one tiny bite. Just to try it. And I was good with that. He put peanut butter, non-dairy chocolate chips {because that's all I buy} and marshmallows on top of naan and toasted it up in our oven. It was pretty delicious. I give him props for his creativity.

I like to flex, in case you couldn't tell. I'm feeling extremely strong lately. I PR'd on deadlifts this past weekend - 225 pounds. You can watch that here. And just because I like to keep it real, here is me failing at 235. Next time I will lift 235.
Typical breakfast. I eat this almost every day. A good mixture of carbs, protein and fiber. There is also protein powder mixed in with my coffee because I had just completed a workout. 

Vader still loves to be right by me. As close to me as possible. He's not allowed on the couch but his living room bed is right next to the couch. He has three beds. One in the living room, one in the bedroom and one in the backyard. He's not spoiled at all.

And he is the reason I have to clean my floors so much. This is just from our bedroom. He sheds so much! And his hair really shows up on our dark wood floors. Kind of drives me crazy. 

When I first started using vegan protein, I wasn't in love. But now, I am. I've been getting an iced grande coffee in a venti cup and adding protein to it. So delicious and helps me get my extra protein in.

And this. This was the best part of my entire weekend. My parents friends stopped by to see our new home and they brought us a gift. She said she saw it and said, "That is Heather." She was right. It goes so well with our décor in the kitchen. I can't wait to share more pictures when it's all complete.

  1. Oh no, I hope Vader's anxiety gets a little better! I am glad he's improving somewhat though. Your meals look delicious and so healthy!
