I completely fell off the wagon due to a combination of work & house stress. i stopped body weight exercises but *did* start cardio at the gym (thanks to the encouragement of my partner). I also began doing spinach+tofu+nut salads for lunch (did all last week) and enjoying oatmeal+spinach smoothies most mornings courtesy of my partner. instead of trying to backtrack i'm just going to pick up where i left off and look forward to february.

strength:
dismantled a 60 lbs headboard that came with our new house. lots of lifting/kicking/carrying/hitting.
moved heavy boxes up to attic

cardio:
got to gym late, so only about 15 minutes on elliptical; but burned 267 calories according to machine

food:
oatmeal (chia, salt, maple syrup, hemp seeds, cayenne)
smoothie (spinach, acai, raspberry, apple, banana)
faux chicken noodle soup
chocolate covered flower (tofuti ice cream treat)
1/2 "caterpillar roll": avocado, tofu, cream cheeze sushi
thai take out: wheat noodles, many veggies, fried tofu

other
2 cup black tea

notes
been having a recurring headache in the late afternoon/early evening. missed a couple days, but it's pretty regular. varies in intensity. no clue what it is yet but it's been happening for over 2 weeks.

Hey there! I think you have exactly the right plan! Rather than looking backwards at what you didn't do, just focus ahead on what you need to do next. Make February a great month!! Hope your headaches stop. Maybe you've developed some type of allergy? Have you compared your headaches/intensity with your food intake?

All the best!
Karen

Thanks! :) I thought allergy, too, which was disconcerting since I feel like I'm eating much better lately. The headaches haven't struck for three days now, though, so I'm wondering if they'll go as mysteriously as they came. It's also entirely possible that they're stress related: the absolute worst one was the night of a long 1.5hr presentation I gave at work.

Yikes! Hopefully, the headache came AFTER the presentation, not before? In any case, hope they stay away for good!!!
