Ship’s Log–January 4th


Today things finally felt back to normal, with a non-holiday schedule. Tonight there was some serious temptation to do take out of some sort for dinner, which was certainly part of our previous routine, but I pleaded with the family to at least make it more than 4 days before we go back to that bad habit. We made sandwiches at home rather than getting sandwiches from the Natural Market, which is a small step…but there were no potato chips, which is a much bigger step.


45 minutes vigorous MMA class, in which we worked on speed and conditioning, followed by 5 or so minutes of yoga and today’s 18 push ups for the January Challenge


  • Vegan whole wheat pancakes with 1/2 banana sliced, walnuts, dried cranberries, and maple syrup

  • Water with NUUN Active Hydration Tablet
  • 1/2 Blueberry Vanilla Kind Bar


  • Wildwood tofu burger on whole wheat flat with smokey chipotleĀ mustard, lettuce, tomato, and avocado
  • Cole slaw made with chipotle mayo. (You may have noticed a lot of close slaw recently…I bought a head of green cabbage and a head of red and shredded them both for the week, which produced an amazing amount of vegetable material. We’re only about half way through it)
