Cooking, Logging, Running

Tuesday, January 08, 2013

I think I'm finally getting back in a healthy groove. I've been doing a lot of cooking, logging & running recently - and it think I'm starting to see some results. (It's always so hard for me to continue in healthy habits if I don't feel like there's any proof of improvement).

So, we've tried a whole bunch of new Cooking Light Recipes in January. Since Friday we've made Roasted Cauliflower Soup, Seared Scallops with Bacon, Cabbage & Apple, Oven-Puffed Pancake, Thai-Style Pork Stew and Chicken Soup with Cabbage and Apple. (I've reviewed them all on the "Cooking Light Magazine Fans" spark team message board. You can read them here:

My husband and I have also been logging our food. We tend to be better at logging when we're both doing it. And just as important as logging, I'm logging & making a point to stay in my calorie range.

And, once again, I'm training for a marathon. The NJ Marathon is in May, and I'm in the 4th week of a 20 week training program. I do better with exercise when I have an extra incentive not to skip workouts. If I skip my training runs, I know I will regret it now and in May when I find myself struggling.

It feels good to be moving in the right direction again. Here's to small steps & keeping it up.
