TBT12-Day 5

It only took me 4 days to realize I was labeling my posts wrong. It’s 2012, Andrea…. Sigh. So last night I watched “The Future of Food” which vilified Monsanto and scared me about GMOs. It was good timing because the other day Door to Door Organics sent me a “please come back” appeal email. Halfway through the movie I […]

TBT11-4

And…. I woke up sick. 10 days before my big marathon, dammit. At least I decided not to run the Goofy Challenge this week and not run down my immune system more. I should have seen it coming, with all the sleep I felt I needed late last week. Even Sat back in CO I slept something like 10 hours. […]

TBT11-Day 3

Food tea tofu scramble with greens, tomato, mushroom, avocado. BUT! When I went to eat it, I had no bread for toast. I don’t want to be melodramatic and say this is a travesty, but this is a travesty! I eat scrambled eggs or tofu on toast. Always. So I actually had to use a fork this time. Bummer. homemade […]

TBT11-Day 2

Although I eat well, I do take a few supplements. This is what I took today: Supplements Morning: Vegan multi-vitamin. Not only does it not contain animal product (gelatin or shellfish), it accounts for an animal-free diet. For example, the B12 is really high. Co-Q 10 Iron – I used to take this and calcium in the morning, but they […]

I made cheese! Um…. with cashews and no dairy.

So I don’t eat a lot of cheese anymore, but I’ve heard that raw cashews can make for a good alternative. With my fancy new food processor, I decided to try making some. I found a pretty basic “Raw Cashew Cheeze” recipe on Vegweb and then incorporated some of the comments. It’s remarkably easy – 1 1/2 cups cashews (not […]

I’ve purchased a few crossfit packages from Daily Deal sites, but hadn’t had a chance to use them until today. The […]

Getting Fit with Fleetly

When I first started lifting, I scoured bodybuilding.com for workout plans to figure out what to do at the gym. Lately, however, I’ve struggled a bit with my motivation in finding new exercises, or determining how hard to push myself. Enter Fleetly. Frida first turned me onto the iPhone app, as a way to log workouts, sign up for challenges, […]

TBT11-Day 1

A few days ago when I said I was going to restart the TBT, a friend said “right before the marathon?” (I’m running the Houston marathon on Jan 15th). I cheekily replied that it really wasn’t much different than what I’m doing now, I’d just be writing it down. Well, it turns out that accountability to you, dear reader, has […]

December 2011 Monthly Mileage

Another “biggest month ever”! 181 miles this month – that’s 10 more than November despite the fact I’ve started tapering for Houston. I went on quite a streak, running 13 days straight for a total of 104 miles. I WON a 5K race (which later turned out not to be 5k, but I still won, darnit!) I’m finishing the year […]

TBT – Goal Setting is Tough!

So… it’s that time again. I’m embarking on another round of TBT – a 90-day Total Body Transformation program. I started it for the first time last Feb 21, and I had some very specific goals related to strength training, running and nutrition. All in all, I was quite impressed with how it went. Being on the program really changed […]
