Anthony and I went to this great market called "John's Market". The

3 Artichokes- 1 dollar!
1 Butternut squash- 50 cents!
1 Huge container of Shitaki mushrooms- 2 Dollars!
and that funny little guy in the back is a Yucca root!!- 50 cents!!
We ended up making Broiled Artichokes, and sauteed Mushrooms
(anthony made himself fish)
..and I made this great Israili Cous Cous from Vegan Express (of course with my own twist)
A yummy home made meal :)
For lunch today
Today for lunch I made a sort of sandwich. I melted some rice cheese on a half of a gluten free wrap...it was super crunchy and yummy... and I topped it with avocado spread, sprouts, tomato, artichoke, and lettuce...
I LOVED IT!!!
Ok so now onto my title...
Ask yourself... What have you done today?
Ok clearly Im obsessed with THE BIGGEST LOSER! I swear to god that this show inspires me to work hard during my work outs...
These people are severely over weight. There are women on the show that are 5'4 and weigh over 300 lbs. That is a serious problem. Over time,... and with the help of their trainers the drop an amazing amount of weight. So when I work out... I ask myself... if someone more than twice my size can run three miles... why shouldn't I... and then I do.
Today I really pushed myself at the gym and I was happy. I have been running 3 miles at least 5 days a week... and today I pushed it to 4. I know it doesnt sound like all that much.. but to me it was an accomplishment. I also spent an hour on my arms...and 15 minutes on my abs and gave myself a great 10 minute stretch.
It is so easy to say.. "oh I'm tired"... "i just commuted from the city for an hour and a half and I want to relax.".."I spent my whole day at work...i deserve to take a nap"..."I have so much work to do"... "I have to.. I have to... I have to.." How many times have you said these exact things to yourself...Next time.. say "I deserve to spend some time on myself... to better the person I am.. and to help myself stay healthy."
...So... "WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TODAY... TO MAKE YOU FEEL PROUD?"
