Recipes and Dumbbells

Last week when I reviewed my New Year’s Resolutions I was surprised to see a few of the little items that I hadn’t gotten to yet.  And so this week I have begun to tackle them!


My Vegan Recipe Book —

I am forever saving vegan recipes that I come across on line, and then printing them out to try.  (I have 2014-03-10 14.48.24even made quite a few of them).  The recipe sheets had just got thrown into the front of an old recipe book which made it difficult to find them again!  I had wanted to put them into an organized binder for quite sometime so I made it one of my goals for this year.  I am happy to report that I finished the binder and2014-03-10 14.48.11 now all the vegan recipes I have collected are easy to find.  I also have them in a folder on my computer arranged by type of food — appetizers, soups, main dishes, etc.  And so, if you are looking for something, let me know, I can send you a copy!

Some great resources for vegan recipes are No Meat Athlete, Forks Over Knives, Mind Body Green and I’m sure there are tons more.  Let me know if you want me to add some of your favorites!


Weights —

2014-03-10 14.35.44And, I finally managed to move my dumbbells upstairs from the basement to where I will actually use them!  This wasn’t a particularly difficult project, I only have a set of 3 lb., 5 lb., 8 lb. and 10 lb. dumbbells, a few body bars, some weighted balls and a small rack to hold them.  It just was a matter of doing it.  This afternoon I had some free time and so I went down to the basement, dusted off the rack and the weights and brought them up a few at a time.  Even better I then did some rows, arm raises, squats and lunges with them!  One of my resolutions this year is to do something every day, even if it is a couple of sets of biceps curls, so having the weights where I can easily access them should be helpful!
