Ship’s Log–January 9th


I finally got a run in today, now that it is finally not too horribly cold. It was just below freezing, and it took a lot out of me since I’m not used to running in the cold, but it was doable. I had intended to also take a class at the dojo, but by the time evening rolled around I just wasn’t up to it. I still have another 4.5 miles to go to meet my goal of 9 miles for the week, and the weather the next two days doesn’t look great. I hope I can find an hour of relatively dry weather tomorrow to do it, or else I’ll be running in the cold rain.


  • 23 push ups
  • Run 4.5 miles. It was cold.


  • Smoothie: banana, pineapple, frozen cherries and blueberries, red leaf lettuce, romaine, kale, flax and chia seed, Warrior Blend Raw Protein, and water
  • 1/2 grapefruit
  • Cinnamon raisin sprouted grain Ezekiel muffin with almond butter and blueberry preserves
  • Coffee with pumpkin pie spice, vanilla stevia, and unsweetened soy milk

Morning Snack:

  • Gingerbread spice tea


  • Salad: red leaf lettuce, romaine, kale, red onion, cherry tomatoes, shiitake mushrooms, and tempeh bacon dressed in sriracha, blackberry ginger balsamic, and miso
  • Wasa cracker with hummus
  • Coconut seltzer
  • Coffee with vanilla stevia and soy milk
  • Piece of dark chocolate

Afternoon Snack:

  • Post-run: hot chocolate made with soy milk
  • Bowl of cereal with 1/2 banana and soy milk
  • Green olives
  • Dark chocolate
  • Probably some more stuff. I was a snacking fiend, and I stopped keeping track. Running in the cold messes up my appetite.
