You wanna know something funny? Yesterday I just received 3 new cookbooks from Amazon....after I posted my comment on your dressing I sat down with Vegan Table and noticed it right away. :)

Anything else from that book you would recommend? Lots of stuff looks yummy.


I can't think of anything else that I have made from that book...but I"m sure I did-it's late and my brain is sleepy. I'll get back to you.
I have made more out of her 1st book tho...

I like the chili oil soba noodles. That has always gone over very well with company. I switch up the veggies to whatever i have on hand like broccoli cauliflower, snap peas etc. The pad thai is also good. The tempeh sloppy joes are super quick and easy to make and taste good. I also remember a good moroccon stew. I haven't had enough time to really get into that book yet though.

******************************************************************
gotta start again sometime!
i have been working out sporadicly. I had a rt. arm problem…it seemed to be much better even after a long bike ride (not sure how long-20 miles?) and a heavy backpack
on Nov. 9. I was sitting on the couch seeing if I could hold my arm out and up w/out problem and then it happened! Worse than before. Aching! This time
it feels like when I had something like tendonitis. Pretty bummed about it. Yesterday I wanted to start my 5th week again and thought that would
be a bad idea with this problem. I don't want to make it worse!

I chose Plyometrics instead and only had to mod. a couple of exercises. Not sure what I'll do today. Maybe legs/back and leave out most of the back….it is gross out and I don't feel like running but we'll see.

feeling a teensy bit better. At first it was constant pain but now it's when I move my arm in certain ways or certain positions.
It's dance night and I want to go---gotta get some cardio w/some 80's tunes!
Just have to be careful of the way I move---which is hard as I am a total dance-spaz.

Wow- I walked into the joint and started dancing in 10 seconds….I did not stop for more than 2 minutes for 3 hours and 10 minutes.

back on the schtick-even if it is with trepidation about my arm.
Did surprisingly well-skipped 3 exercises and one (1 arm balance push-ups) I tried and failed w/pain on the first one.
I lowered weight on a few things----could not extend arm all the way up or out to the side
but I did my best. The coolest thing is that it did not worsen it. Still feeling improvement. That gives me hope.

moves

Back and Biceps--- this was the toughest. Although my right arm seems considerably better, this workout proved that there is still a problem. I felt so much weaker on the right side-very sore too! For the most part, I lowered the weights on the bicep exercises by 2 1/2 to 5 pounds. My left seemed normally fatigued as I haven't done a similar workout in 2 weeks or so. I soldiered thru it, and skipped some exercises altogether because I just don't want another setback. I feel like I did get a very good workout--I feel pretty pumped---but didn't go completely all out like I try to do. I usually get kinda shakey alittle over half way thru and today it was closer to the end that the shakiness started.

<><><><><><>

meals

fruit salad (pineapple, 2/3 pear, 1 banana, 1/2 orange, mango)
shredded wheat cereal, almond milk, agave
black coffee
handful chocolate chips
1/2 orange, more pineapple
handful of wheat thins
handful of raisins
(3:45 workout )
shake (vanilla soy protein, banana, blueberries, flax oil, spiralina, rice milk)
black bean burrito and salsa
nibbling on tempeh, peppers, onion for m's fajita (which I shall enjoy tomorrow)
HUGE salad (romaine, red cabbage, peas, carrots, celery, walnuts, sunflower seeds, agave mustard dressing)
sampling a little tortilla, and leftover tarragon croutons I made before
red wiiiine

moves

Legs and Back---my, I haven't done this in a while. I did all of the many legs exercises. I really made myself scream out with pain with one swim stretch YEOOOOOW!
The back exercises are chin-ups, wide grip pull- ups, switch-grip pull-ups, close grip pull-ups. You are supposed to do 2 sets of each exercise to fail…. (but they are interspersed through workout). Again, I am thinking about my arm so my best judgement (as I only have myself as a guide at this time) was to do 2 sets of the wide as they seemed to hurt a little less, one set of the others besides the switch grips as they are difficult for me to do alone without someone holding the chair.

my granola + multi grain squares, almond milk
black coffee
some pita chips
sweet potato
banana
miso soup, tofu, scallions, sesame sticks
