Thank you!! I am trying. I HATE this time of year with a passion, but if there's anything that gets me through it, it's the right foods and staying active. Usually around this time I am gaining weight, not maintaining or losing. So I am really freakin' grateful I am finally no longer undoing a full year's worth of work!

Stomach in amazing amounts of pain. I don't know if it's just being super finicky, I ate something off, I ate too much of something, I don't know what. I do know that I look forward to going to the supermarket tomorrow to buy some nice, healthy food because I think my body is happiest on a raw diet with wheat and gluten being sometimes foods.

Trying to learn what my body likes and doesn't like in terms of food is a serious pain...no pun intended. I had a serious amount of Gardein beefless tips then the veggie parm casserole thing...maybe it's rebelling?

I'm going to go drink tea and pray it goes away....

Stomach is still in amazing amounts of ow.

I am definitely coming down with something. I loaded up on fruit, fruit smoothies, liquids, and soups yesterday as I had a pounding headache, a mild fever, and just kept sleeping and sleeping.

I feel loads better today and plan to do something awesome in my fitness room/basement but not so awesome I relapse.

I truly hate this time of year with a passion.

Greens, lots of greens! And rest. There is no point exercising if it kills you :S

Last night I actually did not require 12 hours of sleep and felt like I actually slept enough, woke up normal time. That's good! My Boston Organics shipment arrives today, I am crossing my fingers it has kale :D

Eating lots of fruit, fruit protein smoothies, Vega, Sunwarrior, last night was soup--tofu and veggies, omnomnom, plus rice noodles. Feeling better but not quite at 100%. I'm going to give yoga X or Fountain of Youth's shorter version of it a try tonight, that's usually the best thing.

Just did 30 pushups on my toes just to see how I'd feel afterward. I feel great! I love the fact that I a) am getting over this little bug VERY fast and b) am deprogramming myself from craving unhealthy comfort foods when sick. All I've been eating are fruits, fruit protein smoothies, Vega smoothies, and veggie and tofu soups.

I will never be completely raw but I really do think that a mostly raw food diet is good for me. I just feel better on it. It also helps me to curb eating certain foods which are a) not good for me and/or b) my body doesn't like.

Did another 30 pushups, just because.

Food log:

Breakfast: 1 scoop chocolate Vega Whole Meal Optimizer, 1 scoop chocolate Vega protein, 3/4 cup strawberries, 1 cup light chocolaate soy milk

Lunch: 5 clementines and fruit protein smoothies consisting of 1 cup mint chocolate soy milk, 1 scoop chocolate Sunwarrior protein, 1 banana, 3/4 cup mixed berries, 1 scoop raw cacao powder

Dinner: 1 salad made with green and red kale, baby spinach, oil free hummus, roasted salted pepitas, sunflower seeds, and Annie Organics Goddess dressing

Snack: 1 cup unsweetened soy milk, 1 banana, 3/4 cup pineapple chunks, 1 TB natural almond butter, 1 scoop Sunwarrior vanilla protein

I tried eating two small oatmeal cookies. Big mistake, not doing that again. Tummy not happy. It apparently prefers all the healthy stuff now. Okay then.

Food log today so far:

Breakfast: 1 scoop chocolate Vega Whole Meal Optimizer, 1 scoop chocolate Vega protein, 1 cup light chocolate soy milk, 1 banana, 3/4 cup mixed frozen berries in a blender. Tasty!

Lunch: three oranges. I plan to eat something more substantial once I have a moment to breathe. Freakin' New Year's Eve. I don't even. I AM NOT PREPARED. Later: 2 more oranges and some leftover veggie lentil barley soup.

Snack: more of those oatmeal cookies. Aside from the sugar and flour, they're not bad. Mostly just oatmeal, raisin, spices...okay, I'm overjustifying, but those were the last of the cookies. I wanted them out of my house before Jan. :oops:

Dinner: 1 scoop Vega chocolate protein, 3/4 cup frozen strawberries, one banana, 1 scoop raw cacao and 1 cup light chocolate soy milk in a blender.

So far my physical activity involves lugging a 25lb dumbbell in a mall while shopping. Last one in its size, and on sale until tomorrow. Why I didn't buy it last I'll never know.

So I bought this awesome slicing tool for veggies and fruits, it'll be worth its weight in gold. Also wearing my Eat More Kale shirt. :D

Made these for a NYE party:

Raw fudge brownies

Bottom layer:
- 1 cup pitted dates
- 1 cup almonds (you can use walnuts too)
- 1/2 cup of raw cacao

Fudge layer:
- 4 TB freshly ground almond butter
- 1 TB agave nectar
- 1 ripe banana (two if you want more of a banana taste, YMMV)
- 1/2-3/4 cup raw cacao

Mix the ingredients in the bottom layer in a food processor, spread into a brownie pan evenly, then mix the fudge ingredients together and spread on top. Place into freezer.

One of the things I like to add to the raw cacao is chocolate protein powder from either Sunwarrior or Vega, but you gotta add some water if you do that, I've found.

Okay! Log so far:

Breakfast: 1 scoop chocolate flavored Vega protein, 1 scoop chocolate Vega Whole Meal Optimizer, 1/2 cup diced frozen pineapple, one banana, one cup light chocolate soy milk

Lunch: buffet at Grasshopper for the New Year

Dinner: Went to Red Lentil with a bunch of friends, had the Gobi Manchurian and a Bunny Spice smoothie: http://theredlentil.com/menus/dinner-menu

Workouts:
30 pushups this morning (yes, toes! yayayayayayay)

I need to revamp my routine. I backed off the TurboFire uber cardio to do P90X, now I'm feeling like I need more cardio. I'm going to be trying ChaLEAN Extreme and tacking on additional workouts when I feel like it. Trying to find the ideal workout schedule for me can be challenging and is constantly changing.

Food log:

4-5 bananas and 5 tangerines for breakfast

Mango and orange smoothie for lunch

Dinner: 3 slices of pizza from Peace of Pie and two small breadsticks with marinara.

Snack: mango sorbet

Workouts:
20 min TurboFire HIIT
20 pushups
3 sets of 4 reps, 10lb delt workout. Two reps straight out to the sides plus another two as "w"s as one set. I need to work on those delts and I haven't been able to get better than the 8 lb weights. They're my weakest muscle. Time to get them better!

Also spent four hours helping my friend to clean her place so I was rewarded with the vegan pizza. It was tasty.
