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

Yay running! So excited for you! How exciting! Did it male you feel DOMS or fatigue or anything like that?

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.

Can you supply more details about your caesar salad?

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
