Ship’s Log–February 26th


I’m getting really bored with this whole Polar Vortex phenomenon. Enough with the cold, already. It’s nearly March, and I should be out there running happily three days a week, not running stairs inside because I’m too wussy to run in the freezing wind. Tomorrow and Friday are also not looking great for a run either (Thursday I have to save my energy for testing at the dojo in the evening, and Friday’s high is 21).

Things look a little better for the weekend, and I hope to get a decent run in Saturday or Sunday with the positively balmy high 30’s temperatures forecast before the next snow storm rolls Monday through dumping…hmm, let me look…3-6 inches of snow?!?!?! Are you serious???

I shoulda bought a treadmill.


  • February Ab Challenge Day 26: 80 sit ups/ 23 push ups/ 1m 30s plank
  • 125 flights of stairs


  • Daily Detox Drink. Not really sure if I’m getting anything out of these besides a big dose of vitamin c, so I may stop taking them.
  • Oatmeal with applesauce, blueberries, banana, flax seed, and cinnamon
  • Coffee


  • Leftover Cuban black bean soup
  • Homemade baked corn chips
  • Salad; red leaf lettuce, romaine, kale, clementine, cranberries, walnuts, and Braggberry dressing
  • Coffee

Afternoon Snack:

  • Green tea latte (matcha, almond milk, and vanilla stevia)
  • Small bowl of leftover pasta


  • Homemade vegan meatball burger on whole wheat flat with smokey chipotle mustard, vegan nacho cheese sauce, sliced tomato, and lettuce
  • Wasa crackers and hummus
  • 4 Thin Mints. I didn’t want them, didn’t ask for them, but the things got them out and put them in front of me. My willpower isn’t on its own, and I have no hope when the treat is sitting RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME.
