So I can see better! Yesterday was bad, bad, bad but today the doctor told me I am looking great and healing quick. So, Monday I am going to ask my limits to workouts and she what she tells me. Hoping to at least be able to walk/run, may lift a little...we shall see.
Meals have been sporadic due to my meds and naps. Little munches here and there. Gotta be real careful since I am not working out.
I did see that Vegan Essentials is having a sale on Vega stuff soon!

Hi Sherrie! Congratulations on your quick recovery! That speaks to your good health and the care you take for yourself! Yay! Make sure you eat well and don't rush yourself when it comes to exercise. And for now, enjoy those naps!! :D And yay for Vega sales! I plan to take advantage as well!

Have a happy day, Sherrie!

January 29
Thanks Karen! I am feeling good! I credit my vegan eating for my quick recovery as well :)
Yesterday went shopping with mom and sister...I consider this walking (cardio?) in heels so the calves go a good workout :) Plus some lifting of bags. I will get in the movement where I can!
Went to HuHot for lunch (veggies, veggie, veggies!)
Went to the Co-op and grabbed some dinner (vegan sandwich and kale salad) and groceries since mom and sister don't have anything like that where they live.
Looking for ward to maybe some easy workouts this week~

Yesterday meals:
B- cereal and pro-biotic coconut stuff
L- Did I eat lunch?????????
S- Soy Latte

Looking forward to a great day...gonna sign up for a half mary in May and get my Vega from veganproteins.com :)

Meals: Smoothie
S- Smoothie
L- Veggie stir-fry leftovers, apple, and part vegan heart-cake

Mmm, what's heart cake? Sounds delish!

Glad you're feeling better, Sherrie!

Good luck with your goal for February. Hope you'll stick around the forum and stay involved with the community, and hopefully journaling here can play an important roll in reaching your goal! And, personally, I don't think there's anything wrong with eating (vegan) cookies! As long as you've planned for the calories, enjoy!!! :D

Heart Cakes are sold at our local co-op. They are vegan and come in flavors such as chocolate, cranberry, apple, and peach. They have a lot of protein and nutrients and are a great snack. I actually discovered them a loooong time ago (before I even switched to a vegan diet) at a little community outside the city.
They are like an energy bar.
Website- www.suncakes.com Look under Heart Thrive

I am definitely going to stick around in February! You (Karen) have been a great cheerleader! I look forward to spending even more time here and taking better advantage of the resources on the site.
I also look forward to reading your journal as well...will you keep journaling Karen?
I also want to be more of a reader too...on this site :)
I am going to weigh in every Tuesday so I will keep posting my progress!

Friday: Workout- none...taking more recovery time until I get the "go ahead" from the doc.
Meals: Getting back on track much better now that I am in a routine.
B- Smoothie
S- none
L- vegan chili, apple
S- Picky Bar
D- Veggie Stir Fry (thanks hubby), PB cup (Justin's)
Movie Night!

Saturday:
Workout - Ran 3 miles on the mill (30:30)
Meals: B- Cereal and Coconut Probiotic (half the serving)

Gave Blood! I am an O- girl so I try to give as much as I can. Iron is always a trick for me...barely made it today (second try just made the cut). Helpful hints on getting my iron up?
Blood Pressure was 90/50 (lowest it's been according to my records at the Red Cross)

S- Animal Cookies (vegan according to the ingredients) and a Picky Bar
L- Met the hubby at the local grocery store buffett. Had a huge salad and some veggie sushi
S- None
Went to a movie with friends and had mango slices, nuts, and granola
D- Finished off my cereal from the morning
S- Had the rest of my mango,nut, granola mix and some vino.

So- goal for this week (after looking back on my posts): Cut back on the vino!

Today: I have a five mile run in a few hours
Breakfast was a green smoothie and coffee
Post workout will be a Picky Bar
Lunch: Heading to a friends' for the SuperBowl and made vegan chili with tempeh :)

Looking forward to a fun afternoon!

Thanks for the info on the Heart Cakes. I'll check 'em out!

Yay, glad you're planning to stick around the forum and keep journaling! I'm looking forward to keeping up with your progress and cheering you on! :D With regards to your workout on Saturday.... I dream of the day I can run 3 miles in 30 minutes! I'm doing the Couch-to-5K program right now and still have 5 or 6 more weeks till I'm supposed to be able to do that. Right now the 10 minutes I'm running is so challenging, so it's hard to imagine that I'll ever be able to easily run 30 minutes! Haha! But, I did sign up for my first 5K, so that's great motivation having that date set already.

Anyway, YES, I'll still be here journaling, so yes, please stop by and see what I'm up to. Knowing people read it makes me feel more accountable. ;)

Hope your run today goes smoothly! And have fun at the SuperBowl party today!

~Karen~

OH! Also... As you may or may not have realized, I am one of the VB&F team members, and we received your email request to have your journal considered for the prize package eligibility for the New You for the New Year Challenge. OF COURSE you are eligible! You've done such an outstanding job through the January challenge, and hope you'll stick around the forum as previously mentioned. :) Robert and I will be assembling and shipping prize packages beginning next week, so be on the lookout for yours to arrive mid-month. Yay!!

Karen!!!!!!! That is awesome! I am thrilled to be able to keep following you, and know you are following me. It also helps to know you are watching me! Ha! You will be running 30 minutes before you know it...I started with running ten and walking ten so I can't wait to hear when you complete your first 5k!
I must say- I am also very thrilled to be expecting a package! I was beside myself for the few days when I couldn't see the computer screen and when I went out of town! Ugh!

I am really looking forward to reaching my Feb. goal. I am going to donate 5 dollars for every pound I am away from goal, to a children nutrition organization---could use a few ideas (just in case).

Anyway- today--Feb 6th
Small meals today. Stomach has been off and yesterday I ate "off"--not a ton just a little different.

B- Coconut yogurt, Amazing meal bar
S- Sunflower seeds
L- Rice cakes and Sunflower butter
S- Picky Bar
D- Leftover vegan chili and water

No snack. Early to bed. Exhausted.
Saw the eye doctor today. She said I am healing well but to be careful not to get too antsy and overdo it, so I am taking a rest day after my 5 mile run yesterday and boot camp tomorrow.
Weigh In in the a.m.!

That's awesome, Sherrie! Hope your stomach is feeling back to normal soon.
