Meatless Mondays

I’m visiting my older sister this weekend in northern Virginia.  She has two kids (2 1/2 and 6 months), two dogs, two cats, and one husband always vying for her attention, so to say this house is crazy might be an understatement.  But I love it.    The craziness has kept my mind of my usual thoughts (when am I running today, how far, how many calories have I had…).  I babysat my nephew (the 6 month old) today.  I was changing diaper after diaper and never even had a chance to miss the run that I didn’t go on today!  I am feeling some anxiety about it now, but definitely not as much as usual!

I was ridiculous when packing to come here this weekend.  I really didn’t want her to feel obligated to cater to my food needs, so I basically brought everything I could possibly want/need.  Yesterday pretty much sucked with my appetite.  I didn’t feel like eating.  I wasn’t hungry.  I forced myself to eat normally for me at this point anyway.  I’m doing well. Just have to keep pushing!  Today my appetite wasn’t much better, but I didn’t feel too anxious about what I was putting into my body since I had food that I was comfortable with (even though the food still felt somewhat unnecessary).

On a completely different note:  I’ve decided to join the Meatless Mondays movement.  If you read my previous post, you know that my nutritionist cautioned me against full-time vegetarianism and too much part-time.  I feel like one day a week is a pretty good compromise to that.  My sister has this book 1,001 Low-Fat Vegetarian Recipes that has so many recipes and looks so awesome!  I’m going to pick up a copy for myself tomorrow and work my through as many recipes as possible!  I’m super excited!!

Off to catch up on my blog reading since I was internet-less yesterday!!
