    I think I'm going to make this tomorrow for dinner. Not sure what to do about a slaw though. I'll probably try to recreate what you bought from TJ's. I won't have a chance to go myself. Will probably also add some protein, I feel like shrimp would be really good...

    I still need to make a plan for weekend food... I don't really have anything going on this weekend so I should have plenty of time to cook.

    It's a really forgiving recipe. I think food-processing/blending half a purple cabbage, half a green cabbage, and some brussels sprouts ought to result in something similar enough. Unless there's some other pre-shredded cabbage blend that you can get from your grocery?

    It was great with chicken -- shrimp would probably be good too.

    Your back thing is kind of worrisome. :/ Have you had back issues before? Glad you're going to see a doctor about it.

    Yesss. I also plan on binge-cooking this weekend. Also binge-watching Netflix. And binge-cleaning the house.

    Also I'm going to try to go to the gym on Saturday.

    And I got an app yesterday called Timeful that will hopefully help me out with all my various resolutions (including gym time).

    A food processor is like the only kitchen appliance I do not have. I have a blender, but not quite the same. I will be hand chopping. Or, buying slaw.

    I've had back/alignment issues pretty much forever. I kind of lost the genetic lottery. My dad has completely flat feet, and lots of back problems. My mom has knock-knees. Both have really bad posture, my mom kind carries head forward, instead of being in line with her spine.

    I have all of these things plus really loose joints, I've sprained both ankles multiple time and my knees and hips are constantly popping. It's like everything about my body is not built for exercising.

    Yeah, there is definitely Netflix time in my future also. I just found out about another British show called Broadchurch that has a lot of actors from Doctor Who that I love in it. That's going to happen.

    Definitely buy slaw if you can. Saves SO much time.

    Jeez! Well good for you for keeping it up. Yoga sounds like an even better choice for you with all those factors in mind.

    AHH YES GREAT IDEA. I forgot Broadchurch is on Netflix now. My parents have been trying to get me to watch that.

    Made the slaw and I am kind of obsessed with it. Super yummy, filling, and healthy. However, next time I will definitely buy that Trader Joe's slaw mix. So much chopping.

    Modifications:
    - Added chicken. I marinated it in soy sauce, sesame oil, lime juice, garlic, honey, crushed red pepper. Sliced and sauteed. SO good.
    - Used green cabbage (cheaper)
    - Added crushed red pepper to peanut sauce
    - Added a little avocado when I served it.

    Will definitely make this again.

    I got a PT referral from my doctor, so assuming I can find one that takes my insurance I will hopefully be starting that this week. I also bought a new yoga mat from REI with a Visa gift card I got for Christmas. Really excited to use it this week. I may have already said this but I got climbing shoes Christmas. I am in LOVE with them. They make smearing (using only the wall's texture as a foothold) so much easier. Going climbing again tonight. I don't know when this happened but somehow I have become a person that shops at REI. I suppose it was inevitable given that I live in Portland.

    Made some pretty mind-blowing ramen!

    Half Baked Harvest - Made with Love

    Modifications:
    - Left out jalapenos, white miso, and most of the lime juice, because I didn't have them lying around
    - Used real ramen and not instant ramen
    - Substituted dried mushrooms for fresh (since that's what I had around) -- re-hydrated them and added both the mushrooms and the mushroomy water to the broth
    - Substituted red curry sauce from Trader Joe's for red curry paste because it turns out I was out of red curry paste

    Got enough leftovers for probably the rest of the week! Psyched to have them tonight. Yummm. <3


    Also I made a big batch of this and froze it to have next week: Goat Cheese Tomato Soup (with a Grilled Cheese). VERY successful. Will make again. (Froze it without the cream and cheese, and in individual containers. Will add the cream and cheese to each leftover bowl after, because the internet told me that freezing dairy-based soup is bad)

    And I've been having this for breakfast: Jon & Erin Stewart: Blueberry Oatmeal Breakfast Smoothie Recipe
    (Next batch, I'm adding less water, because I like thicker smoothies)

    Made Chicken and Dumplings last night. So easy, and so yummy. No cream of anything nasty, just some canned chicken broth. Everything else was fresh ingredients. Next time I might make the dumplings with half whole wheat flour.

    Modifications I made:
    - Only used 2 T of butter
    - Added extra thyme
    - Omitted dill (yuck). Instead I added dried rosemary and a little shredded parmesan to them (YUM!).
    - Didn't cook chicken for a full 20 minutes initially. It was done after 10-15.
    - Swapped peas for green beans, added them with the carrots and onions

    Will definitely make this again. I shared it with my roommates so I don't have many leftovers. I need to think of something to make on Sunday night to eat during the week.

    Actually worked out this week! Not all that much, but twice is better than not at all. Planning on hitting the gym tomorrow, too, while I wait for my computer battery to be replaced.

    A few detail tidbits regarding my exercise attempts:

    - Still not ballsy enough to use the weights at the gym (because everyone at my gym is swole as fuck -- seriously, it's so intimidating), but I like the exercise bikes and ideally will attempt some classes later on.

    - I like my 15-20 minute bodyweight routine, that I do at home: two sets of 10-15 reps each of sit-ups, crunches, close hand wall push-ups, wide hand wall push-ups, vertical leg lifts, Y-T-I raises, and squats. Even keeping in mind how little I've been exercising recently, I can tell I'm improving on all of these. I think I'm already ready to move on from wall push-ups to incline push-ups.

    - I've found myself craving running(!!), which isn't something I've ever felt before. The only problems with that are 1) it's too cold, and 2) I only have cross-trainers, because when I went workout shoe shopping last year, literally every running shoe fit me the same kind of wrong way. So I don't think I'll be able to get cheap running shoes, but will instead have to go to a specialty store and get measured/fitted. And spend a ton of money. Anyway, that will probably still happen in the next few months.

    - Something else to start when it gets warmer: riding my bike! I barely got a chance to ride it after I got it tuned up in the fall.

    Ooh, that looks great. Especially as a winter comfort food recipe -- but with less sodium and less fat and a lot more vegetables. Definitely looks like a recipe for #hygge .

    Making this right now: Butternut Squash Lasagna Recipe : Giada De Laurentiis : Food Network

    Will eat it for work lunches with cooked rainbow chard on the side

    (also made a batch of that peanut noodle slaw because I'm boring)
