Guys. I need to schedule in rest or else I will never do it.
This weekend was too much. I had zero rest time all of Saturday and Sunday. I worked so much that my head went numb. And when I was grocery shopping, I felt loopy and weird. I didn’t even get to spend time with Sam. The only times we saw each other were for meals and even those were brief.
If I am to be truly healthy, I need to take my mental health just as seriously as I am taking my physical health and nutritional health. Sleep and time to relax/do nothing NEED to become a priority.
How am I going to do that? I need to plan ahead. The reason why I am in this vortex of work, to be very honest with you, is because I don’t plan ahead enough to be able to delegate the work to someone else. Of course there are things I do not feel comfortable delegating or things I enjoy doing myself, so those will stay on my plate, but there’s been a lot of things lately that someone could have and should have helped me with. So, my goal is to PLAN AHEAD. Get my part done early so that I team up with someone to continue executing as I move on to the next thing.
Also…I always have last minute ideas, and I always want them done right away because I am so excited…soooo that doesn’t help either!!!
Anyway, it’s 10pm. So let’s get into…
Fit Journal entry. Sunday became a rest day because I simply could not take a moment to step away from my computer. I know it sounds crazy, but I was doing a ton of research, writing a script, and filming for a video I’m super excited about that will be coming out this Sunday. It’s about body positivity, the origins, the controversy, the modeling industry, the money, the debates, and the evolution of the meaning. I can’t wait for you to see it because I went out and interviewed some prominent people in the space and MAN OH MAN wait til you hear what they have to say.
I. WAS. SHOCKED.
I think you will be too.

Rice paper rolls!!! I filled them with lettuce, chanterelle mushrooms, and grilled chicken. I wouldn’t recommend the mushrooms inside – err – at least not the way I made them which was steamed and seasoned with salt and pepper.
The sauce was a mixture of lime, sriracha, hoisin sauce, and a bit of water. Traditionally in the Vietnamese cuisine, my mom would add peanut butter but it’s not necessary in my opinion!
Yesterday came in at 1,414 calories at 155g carbs (44%), 48g fat (31%), and 86g protein (25%).
It’s crazy that the logging of food calories is totally not bothering me. In fact, I find it exciting to see what I am feeding myself!!
