It is! The shredded coconut and cacao remind me of a Ruffle cookie. I used to love those in the 80's. I think they might just have been in Canada though.

25/01/12:

Workout:

FIRST TIME RUNNING POST-SURGERY!!!
5 min. warm up
2 min. run (5 mph)/3 min. walk (3 mph) - five times

So it was kind of lame and slow and I didn't even break a sweat, but still, I'm back at it! I tried to watch my form and note any weirdness in my foot. I didn't feel pain, just tightness. But apparently that's normal and is from all of the scar tissue and I might always have that. My surgeon didn't think it warranted an injection if it wasn't causing pain and impeding my life at all.

Diet:
I ate a lot today and made some not stellar choices. I didn't have a filling enough lunch and that set me up for being in a snacking mood later on. Lesson learned.

grape nuts with soy milk, cacao nibs, coconut, protein powder
daikon and carrot "noodles" with bok choy
2 mandarins, 1 apple
cesar salad, celery
grape nuts with soy milk, cacao nibs, and coconut
squash
too many tortillas
2 cookies

Not at all! But it was super slow and easy. I think using the elliptical in my recovery has helped a lot. I'm going to try running outside a bit this weekend.

true! gah, I haven't been sleeping well lately so I'm always dragging my butt during the day. I'm waiting to hear back from a job and the person doing the hiring is giving me the silent treatment and it's driving me crazy.

HIIT on stationary bike:

I was supposed to do abs but I felt pretty nauseated after HIIT. I probably should have just stuck with some steady-state cardio. I didn't feel up to HIIT but I thought I was just being lazy and told myself to HTFU. Oh well.

Diet:
smoothie with protein, soy milk, flax, and mixed frozen fruit
tofu scramble with onion, carrot, bok choy, and scallion
3 mandarins
black bean chili, baked tortilla chips
1.5 beer

Didn't have much of an appetite today.

sure! I use the dressing from Veganomicon, but I cut out the oil. I use the low fat Mori-nu firm silken tofu, so there's lots of protein in it. Basically I whir it up in the blender with some capers, onion powder, garlic powder, mustard powder, vegan worcestershire, and sea salt. I taste it and see if it needs something else. It tastes way less "tofu-y" if you let it sit in the fridge overnight. I really don't like creamy sauces/dressings that just taste like blended tofu. I like mixing the dressing with sriracha, yum!

That sounds yummy. Sorry you're stressing over work stuff. I can relate. It's not a bad thing to feel sick from HIIT necessarily, unless your sick or something. Good for you for pushing it. I wonder if you'll be sore from it.

Turns out I wasn't sore at all - yay!

28/01/12:

Workout:
2.75 mile run with some walking intervals. I went with my husband who has never really gone for a run before, so I probably walked more than I would have if I was by myself. I'm running around 5.5 mph right now and that feels right for my foot. Wasn't really sore afterward. I think the run took us around 40:00, including walk breaks.

Diet:
black bean chili
smoothie with banana, protein, mixed frozen fruit, and flax
chana masala, brown rice, roti, roasted cauliflower
1 beer
