So this week's plan looks a bit different.  For the next three weeks (building to my half marathon!) I will be adding in an extra 30 minutes of cardio each day, and eating 5 small meals a day.  I'm aiming for about 2000 calories a day.  Most of my meals are going to be recipes from Lindsay Nixon's Happy Herbivore Light and Lean. I've also given up booze and refined sugars during this time.

I did cook some great stuff this past week, though.

Monday, I veganized a recipe Mia found for Bacon Brussels Sprouts Mac & Cheese. I posted the recipe here:

I didn't use the crockpot, but made a tasty white bean chili!

Mia invented a Spinach/Broccoli Perogie pie, which was delicious!

My triathlon training is going tremendously!  This last week, I put in 57 miles! Since I started I've swum over 12 miles, biked over 142 miles, and run over 62 miles.  I've gone over 275 miles in 2014 alone, which puts me well on my way to hitting 1000 by the end of the year.  I'm excited, because my daughter, Mia, has been a great motivator and coach, and is training with me.  She's also adding in the extra cardio, and will be on my same eating plan.

Saturday, I got a long run in outside!  Hooray!  It was such a gorgeous day!  Thanks to the trail maintenance folks for doing such a great job clearing away felled trees and branches.

I just read Stephen King's Under the Dome- and it was really great- a monster of a book, though!  I am currently reading The Goldfinch, and listening to A Prayer for Owen Meany- one of my favorites. 

Rob and I are now in Season 2 of Lost!  This show keeps getting better and better!

I put the Orchids Rob got me in my office, and they make me smile whenever I see them.

And my puppies can't wait for spring, when we go on walkies/runs outside every day!
