I went to the gym to run train because it is icy outside

ran 50 minutes on the treadmill, going great!!

Did not log food. Decided to take a few days off from the food log but continued to eat healthy. Will start food logging again on the 6th.

I went out walking early this morning and had planned to do my Total Body workout.
Well best laid plans. The day went crazy. My 82 year old Mom fell (playing tennis lol) She is all right but it was worrisome for a few days and my cat ate a flower out of a bouquet and I suspected it was a Lily. (It was not a "true" lily) so she is all right now as well after being hospitalized on fluids, etc.
I would like to mention that many houseplants and flowers can be especially toxic to our dogs and cats.
Lily's carry a toxin that shuts down the kidney function and this can happen fast! Especially toxic are Easter and Tiger Lilies. I am grateful today for my pet's wellbeing and wish the same for all!

Well back at it! Everyone is doing fine and I'm grateful I was able to be there to help out!
Today marks 20 weeks of my makeshift work out program that I started September 2010. I lost a total of 17 pounds and strengthed muscles. I no longer have a sore knee and can run again!
Today also marks 1 year of being vegan!! I have been vegetarian since 2007 but I didn't really get it until last year after doing a lot of research and reading. I have never felt better!! I am better able to be in the moment and just dig in and help out when some crisis or stress comes up (which it will always do) with this kind of fuel.
I am grateful for websites like this one with so much information and community of sharing ideas!

Workout
Quick run outside! It was beautiful out today (although they say we are in for a cool down) so had to enjoy it!

Food:
Smoothie - almond milk, kale, brown rice protein, strawberries, blueberries
Whole wheat pasta - eggplant "meat" balls, newmans sauce, nutritional yeast
raw califlower and carrots
ABJ sandwich on sprouted grain bread
clementine, apple
edamame

Yum and Yay!

I have been working out and for the most part logging it on my phone. I haven't got to my VBB&F log though.
I'm still holding my reduced weight but I need to make a plan to get stronger.
We are having unusually great weather around here (you never know with old MI) and I was able to do a 4 mile run outside.
When I came home I did 3 sets of 15x Pushups, squats, crunches and reverse crunches.
I will look through the forums for some ideas for a new spring plan!
Happy Training!!
