Saturday:
What a nice day-took my run outside seeing that it was 40 degrees and sunny!
I ran 2 miles with 2 min warmup=26 mins total-felt great though I didn't wear my heartrate moniter to check if I was staying in my "zone".
stretched 10 mins post jog.....I can tell my stretching is paying off as I feel more limber.

Diet: been a productive day so I've not had time to snack which is unusual for a weekend day at home!
I did make Butter Bean Cookies ANOTHER EVERYDAY HAPPY HERBIVORE RECIPE.......mine turned out looking like oatmeal chocolate chip cookies (cookbook picture didn't look the same as mine). The girls tried one and I had them guess the "mystery ingredient"...needless to say they were shocked that I'd put WHITE BEANS in cookies and that they were healthy AND delicious!! My hubby liked them too!!!
Tonights supper courtesy of my chef hubby: vegan chili!!! It smells scrumptious......

Sunday:
Exercise:
hit the pool with kids in tow.....I swam 600 yds in 100 yd increments and did aqua kid jogging (held BOTH girls in chest deep water at 70# each) for 5 mins .....fun for all and a nice workout! I could tell that I've neglected my upper body these last few weeks since I've not been swimming! MUST do more swimming!! :)

Nurtition:
same as yesterday.....leftover chili and butter bean cookies!! I did eat a banana & kiwi too!! :)

getting my gear and travel food together for end of week trip to Colorado!! I'm so excited to be hitting the slopes in less than a week!!

Hey Lisa! Thanks for giving me another recipe suggestion from HH! I'll DEFINITELY be trying those butter bean cookies! Wow! I've had black bean brownies that were amazing, but never heard of butter bean cookies. Can't wait! :D
Where in CO are you going? I live here! :)

Tuesday:
another gorgeous day here in KC!!! 2nd day of 65 degree temps!
Yesterday's workout-None....day of rest. My hubby and I did take our pooches around the block and then I stretched for about 15 mins.

Monday:
ran outdoors (in t-shirt & shorts!!) for 40 mins.....included warm-up walk/cool down of 5 mins and included 3 miles!! I ran a fairly easy pace due to hills and goal to maintain my pulse between 155-160 (increase 170's on hills). I feel great afterwards!!

Nutrition: not real hungry last two days - reminding myself to eat healthy foods when I do eat then.....

Karen: we are headed to Snowmass......part work/part play! I have a conference there all next week-SUPER EXCITED for skiing as I've not been in a couple of years!! I'm packing my workout gear and hoping to squeeze in a few workouts between lectures and skiing!! :) Where do you live in CO?

hard to believe February is upon us..........

Awesome job, Lisa! I'm really looking forward to being able to run that long, but for now I'm only in week 3 of the Couch-to-5k program, so running 3 minutes is still a challenge for me! Hahaha! :D

Have a wonderful time in CO! I live an hour north of Denver. It's been unseasonably warm here - sounds like the same where you are! Anyhow, have a safe and fun time!

Great job this month with the New You for the New Year Challenge! You've done an awesome job with your consistency in journaling and fitness! We'll be posting an announcement soon with details about eligibility for the prize package and all that jazz. Hope you'll stick around VBB through February and beyond! :)

All the best,
Karen

I'm sooooo ready for a VACATION and snow!!! Bags are packed....between work and packing and kiddos, I've not been able to squeeze in a workout!! I'm hoping to get one in before we get on the road tomorrow!

I did pack my tennis and workout gear w/ i-pod.....I'm thinking I can do some light weights there to go along with 5 days of skiing for my cardio! If I can't make it to the gym there, plan B is to do stretching and yoga poses along with a few body weight exercises at least 3 of the days!!
There-my goal is stated......that's part of the process right?!?

Nutrition on the go...... I'm nervous because I've not traveled in awhile being mostly vegan and GF.....I'm packing snacks such as oranges, bananas, PB, my breakfast cereal, soy milk, celery and hummus. 14 hours of travel time with "eating out" is going to be challenging.....I've got this fear of upset tummy!! Ugh!! That's my motivation to eat well! I'm telling myself-I won't stave!

This will be fun!!!

Have a wonderful time, Lisa! Don't worry... I've found that eating healthy while traveling is usually only challenging when I am not determined to do so. Whenever I've been determined, I've found it easy! Colorado is a very health-conscious state, so you shouldn't find it too hard to get healthy and vegan food. But, yes, always a good idea to bring some food along with you, too. Especially for the travel days. :) If you end up with any spare time in Denver, you should definitely check out Watercourse - an outstanding veg restaurant! And I believe skiing is excellent exercise! :D

We made to Hays Kansas..... Planned overnight stay which is good because I 70 at Goodland is CLOSED - fingers are crossed that it'll open in the am so we can head west!!
Only 4 hours in the car today- ate a banana & homemade trail mix- did eatv4 starbursts which are GF BUT high in fat- made w/ oil- I never would have thought that they contain FAT!!!

Exercise: started on treadmill - 5 min in, time to go..... Hubby came home and we hit the road!!!
Will try to do some light stretching in am before hopping in car!

Karen, thanks for encouragement!!! We tried a local Mexican rest here...... Ok food- I did stick to beans w/ chips- no veggie options available so...... I'm full & will offset in morning with more fruit! Thanks for tip on Denver place!!!

Tuesday:
Today's workout=more skiing!!! We go 1.5 hours then take a break..... Amazing exercise!
Still stretching afterwards.... Surprisingly I'm not terribly sore! :)

Nutrition: conference food has been good- I made arrangements before hand requesting "vegan" & GF choices. Soy milk had been available (I've noticed many others using it as well!) this morning breakfast was a hot veggie tofu scramble!!! It had eggplant , onions, squash.... Tasty! Others stared at my plate....I think they were in envy as they at their bagels & eggs!! Ha!
