BLE Day 60

I love starting a new week in my wellness/food journal!  I’m part of all sorts of planner Facebook groups and I was inspired to draw lines this week!


I had a good food plan today. 


And breakfast went exactly as planned. (Can we say YUM to all those berries from our garden?)


My table was even clean (another struggle here…keeping the table free of clutter).


I love this table so much. In the spirit of Kon Marie, it brings me tons of joy every time I look at it!!


I also got my grapes into a jar today. I think the reason this works so well is because the food becomes sort of vacuum sealed into the jar. When the room temperature air cools down, it shrinks inside the jar which seals the lid. I don’t know the scientific reason why this happens, but when I open the lid to eat some grapes, it kinda has that pop sound. And it does it every time!  It’s like the sound of “fresh” every time you open the jar. I like it!

After breakfast…well…that was it for food today. I went to my classroom and got engrossed in my work. I felt hungry a few times but I’ve learned to ignore it and I was so absorbed in all that I was accomplishing, food was definitely secondary and mostly not even on my mind. 

I know this is not a good thing to do. It’s something I’m working on. I seem to be working on a lot of personal growth right now. 

When I drove home at 10:30pm, I decided to just call this a fasting day and wait till morning to eat. 

Another day, another chance to have bright shiny lines. That’s what I love about this program. It’s real life and you just don’t ever give up and always try again. I don’t beat myself up over my short comings. Tomorrow is a new day. 

Can we just admire this rainbow planner layout though?  It’s giving me all the feels right now as this is a fun hobby that I’m just completely obsessed with!!


In case you like to see planner stuff, I have a whole different blog about it at http://www.myerincondren.com. Enjoy!

BLE Day 59

I knew I would have a hard time blogging once I went back to work. Oh the joy of being a teacher and having summers off!  But I’m back now, and blogging this a day late. After a few days of fuzzy lines, I decided to go back to my tried and true breakfast. 

Lunch was grab and go. I waited too long And I was too hungry to make something. It’s a bad habit that I am still working on changing. At least now, I’m not grabbing junk food (which was totally my pattern before).

I did get inspired for my supper from this post in the BLE Rockstars FB group. 


I got busy immediately to duplicate it!

Garlic from our garden. 

Zucchini from our garden and onions and red peppers from my mason jar storage in the fridge. I did the onions on July 15th and they were still good!!


Sauté’ all the food in a bit of oil. 

Growing up vegetarian, I was introduced to a lot of “meat” substitutes. I’ve been using this taco filling in different ways since it’s a soy base and the BLE plan does say “vegeburger”.  I’m not sure if this is an ok food but maybe someone who is more experienced can let me know by looking at the ingredient list. 

I don’t use a lot of meat substitutes anymore so this does feel a bit like a treat. 

My oh so delicious meal!!  Green beans and tomatoes also from the garden!!

I want to mention again how much I love storing my fresh food in Mason jars in my fridge. I bought this package of sweet peppers at Costco and immediately put them in this 2-quart Ball jar. 

Not only does it keep longer, the food is so pretty this way!!!

My Cavachon, Scarlett, watched me the whole time!!


Another amazing week in the books!!
