    Well, this has been a pretty bad week. Work has been really busy, meaning I have had to bring things home to do. On top of that, I was sick much of the week, and mostly focused on getting enough rest to kick the bug, while keeping up with work. I managed only ONE exercise session all week, once I was finally feeling better. On the plus side, no problem about eating when/what I shouldn't. Unfortunately the next several weeks promise to be just as hectic at work. Now that I feel OK, though, should be no problem to get back to the exercise routine. (Somehow it's easier to recover from being sick than being on the road.)

    Hey guys, just breaking out of my weekly post routine here (though I will post again this Thursday):

    Apparently I'm capable of jogging at nearly 4 miles in an hour, as of now - didn't realize this until I actually pushed myself to the limit on the treadmill earlier. The only thing is, I was stupid enough to forget my water bottle upstairs in my room; so I essentially dehydrated myself to the point where, by the end of it all, I ended up staggering like a drunkard all the way back upstairs.

    At least I know where my limit is right now. All I have to do is gradually double my speed, so that I'll be able to keep up with my dad and brother's pace during the half-marathon.

    Yesterday I ended up eating Reuben sandwiches (2 of them!) for dinner. It was St. Patty's day so why not.

    Today it was fruit (banana, oranges, dried figs) with two big cups of water for breakfast, and an energy bar (this one to be exact: http://www.bettylousinc.com/products...p?id=280&ref=5 ) for a snack, and a bowl of whole, grass-fed milk and nature's path coconut chia seed granola for a 2nd snack, and a salad with fig balsamic vinegar+lemon juice+herbes de provence for dressing for lunch. I'll probably make BBQ shredded chicken and corn for tomorrow's dinner, and spaghetti-squash spaghetti for dinner with an oolong tea near-beer tonight.

    I'm still not 100% on anything, but I am slowly converting my diet to one packed with fruit and vegetables before meat and grains, and I'm converting my drinks and snacks and toppings/condiments to more wholesome ingredients. Still a long way to go: tons of processed stuff in my dinners, and my snacks have less vegetables than I would like still. It has definitely upped the grocery bill for me, but that's fine with me, because it has also cut my prep work for meals down significantly. My stomach is adjusting a bit to the lack of grains, as I used to eat bread with every meal and snack. Eventually I'll get to the vegan-and-semi-raw-style breakfasts and lunches and snacks and desserts, with an open menu for dinners with wholesome ingredients and a single serving of milk and cheese each.

    A quick session of P90X rounds it out for me. Studying all day now. I wish I could just research food instead.

    @Udog woooops!

    This week came around fast

    Week 10

    Weekly Rate: 8/10

    I have been doing ok with everything as a whole. I'm not gonna let one or two things discourage me.

    But the specifics were:

    1)I missed yoga. BOTH days and I'm feeling it now. Can't wait til tomorrow
    2)I have a real problem. It seems the more patient I try to be the less I actually am.

    A couple months ago I went to the doctor and they said that my blood pressure what a little high for my age.

    So this is one of the reasons I have been trying to incorporate health in all areas of my life. Including interpersonal. I will work harder next week to listen to someone. :/

    I'm sorry - I can't do this today.
    I know, I promised I would, but today I just can't. My heart's just not in it.

    I'll post an update next Thursday. Again, I'm really sorry.

    I hope you feel better from whatever is bogging you down.. Trust me, I haven't worked out even half the times I have wanted to.. my goal was to work out 5x a week to prep for 2 a days.. and now? I'm lucky to squeeze 2 sessions in a week. Not enough to get anything done. I had to adjust my goals to compensate for life. It happens. You'll get there.



    Speaking of me Bob Marleying everything all up.

    I feel uncomfortably energetic. I wasn't so stressed for my test, I wasn't stressed after my test, or the circumstances surrounding it. I didn't stress on my homework, nor on facing my teacher when I didn't make it and finish it on time. It all worked out, I had a great work day, and I am generally in a positive mood. I have a HUGE feeling that my diet is entirely to blame for that.

    Seriously. I think those crazy hippy vegan girls I'm watching and reading online are like that because they genuinely do feel that chipper all the time. And I'm a fairly chipper person myself already.

    Currently I've been doing really, really well eating 95% home cooked food (I'm going out to eat once a week to Vietnamese food or occasional sushi, and I eat some snack bars that are organic and filled with vegetables and chocolate), 60% raw, 80% vegan, and 60% organic, mostly my sweets and my snacks and my salads.

    I'm sitting here with my pretend beer right now, watching the rest of the sun disappear, knowing I have a full, jam-packed weekend work load... and I'm totally, totally cool with it. I might even get a chance to work out tonight.

    Oh dear! Friday I didn't so ANYTHING to work out--but I did do a bunch of yard work, and got things ready for a baby's 1st birthday held in my backyard. Saturday was the party + a bunch of homework, but I can happily report I only got away with eating 1 serving of awful-for-you pizza that was half of a regular slice. The rest of the time I ate granola, lovely raw fruits and vegetables, and some coconut sugar sweetened tea to give that a try (it is very, very different.. coconut sugar has a strong flavor for itself.. so it isn't quite 1 to 1 ratios like the package says when it comes to drinks.) and some hummus wraps.

    Today its meal-planning and grocery shopping and tons of homework and study, and hopefully a little bit of running outside if the rain holds out.

    Sunday 23 March...

    I *was* going to have to admit I didn't do my exercise program again yesterday,
    but my son (in the Air Force) called me a little while ago and we got onto the subject of exercise.
    He listened to me complain about a conflict I've been having with someone at work, which has been making me miserable,
    and he challenged me to do my exercises.

    So... I am happy to report that I just finished my exercise program,
    and I continued to do my Ab Crunches all week long!
    I have been pretty depressed and stressed out, but I know that exercising is good for that, so I'm glad I did it!
