Spring is Here

Hey guys, Ok I know it's been more than a week sorry about that. I've been busy, but in a really great happy way. I love Spring. LOVE IT!!! I have almost debilitating seasonal depression and it is FINALLY starting to lift. I had extreme depression through my entire pregnancy, so it has been exactly 12 months since the last time I have been happy. Honestly, the last year was hell I was suicidal through most of it and obviously gained a billion pounds.  Finally finally I am starting to feel good. Training: Last week was ok. I got in the required number of minutes, but I felt like I wasn't pushing myself that hard. This week I have really been pushing and I feel good, but sore. I discovered this cool program on the treadmill in the gym in my neighborhood. It is called "random" and if you pick it will increase and decrease your speed and inclines very randomly. I like it because it reminded me of hiking and it kept my interest. I am trying to do an hour of cardio when I workout, but I am starting to get bored on the treadmill at my house.  Now that it is finally nice out I will try to do more outdoors. Weight: I haven't lost any more and I'm not sure why. I am working out and eating very well. Maybe I am not getting enough calories... I'm not sure I usually get 1200 to 1400 a day. I always eat breakfast, I eat when I'm hungry, and I eat small meals through out the day. Diet: I am a rock star in the kitchen so lots of good nutritious food there.* Vendors please stop bringing donuts and breakfast sandwiches to my job every day.  So far, I haven't had any of it, but there is only so much I can mentally handle.  I made this awesome sweet potatoe curry for dinner last night. Here is the recipe from the International Vegan Unit Sweet Potato Curry From: Jen, Sunshine Coast, Australia * 1 large sweet potato (or 2 smaller ones), peeled and cubed * 1 medium onion, diced * 1 425g coconut milk or cream * 1 tbl red curry paste * 1 tbl soy sauce * 1 clove garlic * oil Heat oil in frying pan and cook garlic and onions until onions are soft. Add curry paste, stir and cook for 2 or 3 minutes until fragrant. Add sweet potato and stir through until it's coated in curry paste, cook for 4 or 5 minutes. Pour in coconut milk and soy sauce. Stir and simmer gently until sweet potoato is tender. Serve with rice of your choice.
