Sunday, January 22 was lazy and busy at the same time. Once again the dvr is possessed, so tomorrow I get to wait for a tech. Woo. I think I am catching my mom's ick because I had no appetite. I hope it comes back soon.

Thank goodness for leftovers.

B - handful of grapes, sunflower butter on sesame crackers, lemon water, black coffee

L - biscuit, water

D - Gardein tenders, dirty rice (made with extra veggies), spoonful mac and cheese, decaf iced tea

Go Giants! Was that a killer game or what?

Monday, January 23 is the last day of my daughter's 17th year. I've been a teary mess on and off this past week, but am determined to not be teary tonight or tomorrow.

B - biscuit and tofu 'egg' sandwich, water, black coffee

L - huge salad with romaine, celery (stalk and leaves), bean salad, and drizzle of balsamic vinegar, water

D - sloppy joe (tvp and Manwich sauce) on bun, pickle, chocolate chip cookie, water, decaf tea

Tai Chi today, and it was perfect.

Hey Sherrie! Don't be sad about your daughter's birthday. Just think of it in terms of being one day older tomorrow than today. :)

By the way, I ordered both of the Happy Herbivore books and am looking forward to trying them out! Thanks for your advice!

Happy 18th birthday to your daughter!

Thank you! I'm not sad, just blown away by how far that 7 lb. 6 oz. bundle has come.

I hope you like the books! Have you cooked anything from her site yet? And if you ever check out Vimeo, she has a couple video demonstrations there. No, I'm not a fan at all, lol.

J's 18th, January 24

It's been an interesting day. My girl is completely unaffected by the day and what it means. She's a funny and awesome kid.

B - Cheerios with soymilk, black coffee, water

S - biscuit with sunflower butter

L - lentil loaf and ton of steamed cabbage, water, lemonade

D was the birthday girl's choice - pizza, salad with balsamic vinegar, lemonade, slice birthday cake, decaf

Gentle yoga today + 22 push-ups. On the floor instead of the wall. I haven't been in condition to hit the floor in ages and get up without help. It feels great, especially since I'm not in as bad a shape as I thought.

Tomorrow, more tai chi and hopefully back to the C25K training.

Awww, happy birthday again to your "bundle of joy"! :)

I've looked throught the Happy Herbivore website and seen tons of recipes but haven't had the chance to try any of them yet. I'm anxious though!

Congratulations on your fitness and for being in better shape than you thought! :D Good luck on your C25K program! Which week are you on? I just started week 2.

Thanks! She's acting like it's no big thing and is a little freaked by the attention. Go figure.

I'm on a walk/jog plan a friend shared from SparkPeople. I'm forcing myself to go slowly so I don't hurt myself. I'm good at hurting myself, unfortunately.

Happy Herbivore's banana bread has the omni family completely enthralled. It's a good and really easy one to start with.

I did not sleep at all last night and am feeling like a 90 year old today - sore, moving slowly. Throw in the headache, and I'm not much good to anyone.

B - green smoothie (cup kale, cup romaine, banana, Plant Fusion unsweetened, and water), lemon water

S - black coffee, walnuts, water

L - tofu egg on whole wheat, apple, water

D - veggie pot pie (pastry crust on bottom, mashed potatoes on top), lemonade, water

Thanks, Karen. I'm not sure if I'm over this bug yet, but it's taken more than enough of my time.

Oy, Thursday and Friday flew by in part because hubby was off and because I'm not at 100%. His influence is not a good one when it comes to keeping on track, but not this time. I don't know if it was his birthday or just something in the air, but he was enthusiastic about going out for Indian and excited about me cooking Friday night's dinner instead of going out. Some days you just go with it instead of analyzing it, so that's what I'll do.

Thursday exercise - 2 2 mile walks with hubby and the dogs
B - tofu and veggie scramble on whole wheat with hot sauce, water, black coffee
L - Indian buffet bliss (all vegan)- Palak Paneer, Vegetable Manchurian, rice, chopped salad, samosa, mint chutney, iced tea
D - huge salad with greens, beans, herbs lemon juice, and red wine vinegar, water
S - slice birthday cake, decaf, water

Friday - crazy busy
Exercise - 1 mine walk
B - 2 vegan doughnuts, coffee, water
L - veggie sub (loaded with extra veggies and red wine vinegar), water
D - Gardein cutlet on bun, hot wing style, sweet potato fries, slaw, banana and berry smoothie, water

Saturday - yoga
B - biscuit and tofu scramble
L - green smoothie (banana, spinach, kale, cocoa powder, soy milk)
D - Gardein cutlet hot wing style, slaw, water

More work is waiting for me, so I'm out.

I am beat. We spent Sunday helping a friend move and her furniture is all solid wood. Piano, antique sideboard, dining table, bunk bed/desk/bookcase system, refrigerator, etc. And the boxes of books! I had my workouts planned for the week but had to make some changes based on what's happening right now. Yoga was needed today for sure.

Sunday - moving day (8 1/2 hours total with 3 hours of lifting, pushing, and arranging boxes and furniture. The rest spent packing and travelling from one house to the other)

B - lentil loaf, mashed potatoes, and mixed veggies, black coffee, water
L - apple hand pie
D - chili dog, fries, burger, lemonade, water

Monday - yoga (37 minutes and it was needed)
B - veggie smoothie (carrot, apple, celery, kale, and a little water in the LaLanne Healthmaster)
S - biscuit, scrambled tofu, black coffee water
L - big salad (romaine, cucumber, tofu feta, onions, black olives, Mrs. Dash, and balsamic vinegar), water, herbal tea
D - Happy Herbivore's veggie biscuit potpie minus the biscuit, herbal tea, water

Peace, all.

Thanks, Karen. We consider these people family, so helping was a given. They didn't ask, we offered. I'm still feeling it since I wrenched my knee pretty good. But I would do it again in a second.
