I made quite a macro feast tonight too bad my dad was the only one that was home to share it with. At least he seemed to of really liked it and insisted that I def give some of the leftovers to my mom to taste later.

Slowly trying to get better habits on my loved ones, today made more progress than most. Got my mom to do pilates with me (she used to do it fairly often 2 years ago but now doesn't really do anything physical) and instead of her morning and afternoon coffee she agreed to have yerba mate, though she didn't like the taste that much (sorta aquired i think anyway...s mabye shell grow to love...likel...tolerate it? heeh) Also got my girlfriend to run a mile and start thinking about picking up some commited training with the intent of her racing a 5k in the spring and us doing a couples tri in the summer (though this is very very hypothetical and probably unlikley..depends on how well she likes training/racing.)

O yea I went pee half an hour ago and was like "holy moly that is some stinky pee":shock: :shock: and then rememeberd that I had asparagus for dinner. :lol:

9:35- 1 apple, 1 pear, 1 kiwi

12:10 - thrive diet recovery pudding

45 minutes upper body circuit training on Total Gym 1000 (yes the thing that Chuck Norris did the informercials for) + 15 minutes abs workout

1:35- Green Smoothie with kale, grapefruit, frozen bannana, pumpkin seeds, cilantro, 1/2 serving natural Vega + handful soaked almonds

6- large salad w/ 2 cups butter lettuce, 1 cup mixed greens, celery, carrots, avocado, mushrooms, sunflower seeds, dulse, brocolli, beets, radish

7:45- Acai Sorbet w/ bananna and handful of Ezekiel cereal + 1 cup herbal tea



Got my mom to drink a green smoothie today. Well it was more blue/purpleish because it had a orange, bananna, and 1/2 cup frozen blueberries to hide the taste/color of 1 leaf of kale, which probably wasn't the best green to start out with. Probably spinach because it is less bitter and more sweet in the first place.

I miss lifting weights and doing upper body stuff. I had been trying to get in a upper body workout once a week, but the few it didn't happen and I only have so much free time and needed to run. The total gym isan't nearly the same, but its the best I have at home without shelling out money for a month long gym membership that I will only use 2 weeks of.

I also had a dentist appointment this morning, ZERO CAVITIES!. The doctor just walked in and said "jee thats a great mouth" and walked out basically. The oral hygenist said it was probably attributed to my diet. I love going to the dentist, such an ego boost haha Tomorrow going to the doctors and gonna get blood work done- hopefully my iron levels are through the roof haha (pumpkin seeds don't fail me now!)

I also usually do 15 minutes or so of Viniyoga right when I wake up and/or after my workout but its usually pretty light so I don't really count it as training just part of my daily routine

9:30 - 1 bananna

10:30 - 1 date dipped in coconut butter

Training- 5k tempo run (21:10:32...slightly faster than last friday...only slightly)

11:10- thrive diet recovery drink

12:30- green smoothie w/ collard green, Acai sorbet, frozen bananna, 1/2 serving natural vega

3:45- large salad w/ 3 cups mixed greens, celery, beets, radish, cucumber, avocado, tomato, sunflower seeds

6:30 - brussell sprouts, millet and cauliflower "mashed potatoes","fakin bacon" tempeh onions and asparagus stir-fry all w/ tahini mustard sauce. (last two were leftovers) + 1 cup kukicha tea

8:45- 1 apple, 1 clementine

Got my mom to have another green smoothie today. This time with two cups of baby spinach, a bananna, and 1/2 cup frozen strawberries plus ground flax and hemp seeds. Think im gonna make her one tomorrow and then teach her how to do it afterwards.

Run was pretty good today, would of like to of gone a little faster, want to get it under 21, which shouldn't be too hard, maybe next week.

8:45- thrive diet energy bar

Training- 1 hour light intensity ride, probably about 18m

10:45- 1 apple, handful of dulse, 3 soaked almonds

12- Green Smoothie with collard greens, 1/2 serving natural vega, avocado, kiwi, pear, frozen bananna.

3:45- large salad w/ 3 cups mixed greens, celery, fennel (!!), radish, brocoli, beets, sunflower seeds, mushrooms, carrots + handful pecans

7:15- homemade Seitan meatballs and marinara on ezekiel sprouted grain pasta.

10:10- 16oz of Silk Soy Nog

In general I try to stay away from gluten but I really wanted to make this recipe for seitan meatballs that I had at a potluck a while back and also stumbled across the ezekiel pasta when in the grocery store with my mom and thought I'd suck it up and make something that hopefully the whole family would enjoy- and they did! I was glad it turned out well, this was my first time making homemade seitan and I was a little apprehesive, but gosh darn its easy! here's the recipe if anyone wants to check it out

http://vegan-vanguard.blogspot.com/2007 ... balls.html



later that night me and my friends watched one of the best christmas movies ever.... "Die Hard" and celebrated the season...hence the soy nog haha. Just got back from midnight screening of sweeny todd, which was a pretty good adaptation if i say so.

10:45 - 1 date, 1 bananna,

Training - 1 hour trail run with 8 mild hill repeats + 10 minutes of lowerbody bodyweight (3 x 30 lunges, squats, calf raises)

12:45- thrive diet recovery pudding

1:45 - Green Smoothie w/ 3 leaves collard greens, orange, frozen bananna, pumpkin seeds, 3/4 serving natural Vega

5:45- large salad w/ 3 cups mixed greens, beet, fennel, carrots and guacamole (2 avocados, tomaote, onion, lime juice, cilantro, sea salt, cayenne pepper) + 1 kiwi

8- leftover homemade seitan wheatballs and ezekiel spaghetti from last night.

felt good to do some lower body stuff, even if it was just a few bodyweight things. There's only one hill around her and its nothing, just a mild hill in a park. But I forgot about the high school stadium bleachers. Next time i wanna do a run with some hill work I think I'm gonna run to the stadium and every lap of so do a bleacher sprint as well.


I think my girlfriend has mentally committed to doing a 5k race in 13 and she is starting a 12 week training program this week which is awesome but tonight we were at a party and she was telling someone that she was gonna run it, so that means that she's acutally down.Hopefully she sticks with it because I know that sticking with regular training would just make her feel so much better, not to mention understand me more.

9:30 - fruit salad (pineapple, clementime, pomegranate, apple, pear) + peppermint tea

11:45- 3 dates, 1 TB coconut butter

[b] 5K Tempo Run ( 20:30...42 seconds faster than last week!)

1:35- 1/2 serving natural Vega in water

3:15- *Christmas Dinner* - Autumn latkes from veganomicon, homemade applesauce, Seitan O' Greatness (recipe someone posted on the forum while back) , green beans almondine, sherry cooked mushrooms, orange juice and maple syrup glazed baby carrots

My goal was to get my 5k under 21 and I went 30 seconds under so I was pleased with that.

I was also pleased with the pecan pie, very tasty indeed. Tasted pretty similar to regular pecan pie but not as sweet, which means I could stomach to eat a very large piece hehe.
