Awesome!

Playing in the snow with family sounds like an awesome day to spend resting and recovering.

Have a great week ahead!

Great! Sounded like an awesome time! Family time is time well spent. I went out to dinner with my mother tonight. It was very enjoyable as well.

All the best! Stay warm with all that snow!

Jan. 16 - Day 16

Workout
Even though I was running late this morning, did a quick 100 high knees, 25 burpees, 100 high knees, 25 situps, 10 pushups as fast as I could. Enough to work up a sweat. Good thing because it's looking like I'm not going to get to workout tonight! Glad I got something in, even if it's not what I wanted to do today.

Food
Better than I have been doing, still room for improvement! Tomorrow I am traveling for work again, so won't get full choice over menus. Did get some input into restaurant this time so know they have something I can eat. Sometimes tough where I live to get anything vegetarian, let alone vegan!

Jan 17 - Day 17

Workout
Was expecting to be traveling for work today, so did a quick 50 reps of ... IDK what they're called, a body weight exercise ... but then figured out it was going to be another snow day instead. Lots of accidents, ice, etc. so decided to work from home. Hope to get back to the gym tomorrow.

Food
Did OK. With my husband's help, even managed to cook some BBQ tempeh. I am NOT a good cook if I have to use the stove top, trying to learn. Hoping this will help my goals of eating more non-processed, whole foods. (And yes, I realize BBQ tempeh doesn't really qualify in this regard.)

Jan 18 - Day 18

Workout
45 minutes of shoveling this morning majorly cut into my time for my leg workout. Did the following:
Dip bar knee raises - 20 reps
Dip bar spread leg raises - 20 reps
Leg press machine - 200lbs, 6 reps x 2 PLUS 10 calf press
Squats - 70 pounds (35 per side) plus bar weight, 5 reps x 2
Lunges - 50 pounds (25/side) plus bar weight, 6 reps x 2
Goblet squats - 55lbs, 6 reps and 50 lbs, 6 reps
Reptile butt lifts - 10 reps

Food
Did OK. Intend to start keeping track of everything again tomorrow for awhile, as even though I'm naturally ending up with about the same number of calories each day even not when tracking, I eat better stuff when I know I'm going to have to document it!! Do have to go out for a work lunch tomorrow, but doubt I will eat at it as we're going to a very non-vegan friendly restaurant.

15 mins (6.14 miles) biking to warm up, then:
Lat pulldowns machine - 110lbs x 8, 100 x 8
Mid row machine - 90lbs x 2, 85 x 6, 80 x 8
Barbell up row - 45lbs x 8, 35 x 8

Workout
Active rest day, hanging out and playing with my boy. :)

For both the 19th and 20th, did OK. Got in lots of fruits and veg, but also had sweets. I am only sabotaging my own success by not making more of an effort. :( Need to own it, not just get by.

Day 21 - Jan. 21
In general, feeling off. Eye infection is really bugging me. Totally forgot to be awesome today. :(

Workout
Was in a bit of a funk this morning so did some exercises to try to help my mood. Helped for awhile.
50 high knees, 5 burpees (with push-up), 50 high knees, 5 burpees, 10 sumo squat leg lifts

Then did more in the evening. BodyRock Fitness Test #2. Since I haven't been keeping up with the challenges, it was really just a chance for me to get in a workout and didn't really expect to make any progress. But I did a little bit!

squat jumps 24
pushups (knees) 23
burpees 13
high knees 168
lunges 22
jump tuck 20
abs 23

Food
So/so. Seems to be a trend -- one I intend to reverse starting tomorrow!!

Raspberries
Black tea with soy milk x3
Earnest Eats choc chip bar
Carrots

Whole wheat pita
Red chai
1 piece toast with buttery spread
Cous cous
Black beans

Day 23 - Jan 23

Workout
Was itching to move around so did some leg work every time I had to put a compress on my eye or put in drops. :) So calf raises, squats, sumo squats with leg lifts, lunges, step ups, balancing on one leg, other leg stretches.

Food
Eating a bit different than normal due to meds, but pretty good all things considered. Fruit, lentil soup, tea, probiotic coconut milk, etc.

Hoping this infection goes away quickly so I can get back to it!
