I see you tried some intervals. Great!!

I know it's difficult, but try not to get discouraged when the scale temporarily stalls. This is when progress photos (and measurements) come in handy. Sometimes fat loss and muscle gain will be about the same, and the scale won't move much. But you will be able to see that you're getting leaner by photos, measurements, and the way your clothes fit.

But also keep in mind that sometimes weight loss will just stall. That's when it's really important to change things. So along with the intervals, you can also add burpees, jump ropes, mountain climbers, etc., between your weight training sets. It's like doing interval cardio during weight training. Another thing you can do is change weight, reps, sets during weight training. Or change the types of exercises &/or hand/foot positions...the variables are endless. The key is to change things up. The human body is very good at adapting to what you throw at it. That's why it's important to vary things to keep your body challenged.

Thanks Michelle - this may be a good week to change things up a bit. I just need to figure out how. Monday - I am booked in back to back meetings all day. No Lunch. Tuesday, I have a 6 am and a 7 am meeting and ackk...just crazy. I'll e mail you. Rest day today...

Very lazy - sort of. Aside of pushing 85lbs of kids in a jogger through 4 inches of snow and sledding (up and down hills) and snow shoveling, I haven't done much. ;)

Rough night - awake at 1, 3, and 5 with 3 year old, maybe got 4 decent hours sleep.
Happy that I was out slogging through the slush on an empty stomach for 3.5 miles. (Visualizing the vegan blueberry cornmeal pancakes and hot coffee I would prepare at the end LOL)

Activity the rest of the day included a vigorous top to bottom house cleaning.

What are your fav places in NYC to get vegan food? I'm new to the city. So far I like Blossom for nice dining and food swings for unhealthy treats like vegan chili fries and vegan milkshakes.

Sorry Dylan. I am in Columbus, OH - although I can see why you asked. New Year New You - competition/incentive Robert C set up. I'm sure there are some New York, New York vegans on this site that can help you though!

Awesome, Zach! It looks like you've managed to incorporate a few of my suggestions. How is everything working for you? Send me an update when you get a chance. You've really done a great job this month. I have no doubt that you will continue the great habits and workouts after January is over.

I am lovin the feedback. Thanks Coach, Thanks Jungle!

Honestly - I'm very careful with my back. I went through a bad time with sciatic pain and general low back pain. I think I can do more, but I'm being cautious. One thing I've gotten as a surprise benefit, is no more back or sciatic pain, I've really just gotten there in the last month. I think it is the weight loss, and even bigger, stabilizing everything with a stronger core. For cryin out loud, I think I saw an ab muscle last night. Big change for me.

weight is flat at 176.5

BTW...the sausage below is a homemade recipe from Vegan Brunch by ICM. Sooo good and super easy.

Mostly Running today. 30 mins at lunch and 30 mins tonight. Plus 3 sets each of weighted crunches, side crunches, back extensions, all with an exercise ball.
