Wow, it feels like forever since I’ve had a random/typical blog post. Now that we’ve finally caught up on my 4th of July vacation, let me give you a quick recap of things that happened between Monday and Wednesday.
Not too much on the workout front, well, okay, mainly running. My runs have been tough as I’ve gotten back into the 4 mile routine (I cut my mileage during vaca).
On Monday I took Bikram Yoga again for the first time in about 9 days and boy was it difficult! For the first time, I actually had to skip several poses and just lay there. I won’t lie, that was so much better than doing the poses. 😉
Yesterday I switched up my routine and spent an extra 40 minutes in the gym in the morning. Instead of driving home, showering, and prepping breakfast before driving to work, I worked out from 5:35 until 7:25, and showered at work. I might have to incorporate more of these workouts on the days I want to lift weights on top of my runs. Time to get serious! I spent my strength workout yesterday doing legs and core work on the bosu ball. Holy crap was that intense!
Meals have been mixed up a bit as I’ve played around with my typical meals.
Tuesday night I smeared raspberry jam on a cinnamon raisin english muffin, and sandwiched it with 3 egg whites.
This bad guy totally hit the spot and he’s making a weekly appearance, at the minimum.
I played around with a dessert that my coach created. It definitely has an acquired taste.
1 cup cottage cheese. 1 tbsp cocoa powder. Vanilla. Sweetener. Almond milk to get it going. Top it with a crushed Quest Cravings PB cup. Ok, the pb cup. Ahhhhh-mazing. Buy them now! You blend everything up and freeze it for a bit to get a thick pudding. It definitely was a little too sweet for my liking, but I think if I play around with it that I’ll grow accustomed to it.
I’d definitely try it if you like experimenting and playing around with foods!
Wednesday night I went to a wicked awesome store for the first time.
Fresh Market is probably best related to a Whole Foods, and my Mom and friends have been telling me to go because I’d love it for so long now, and I finally checked it out since I was next door returning an item.
OMG. Why did I wait sooooo long to go inside?!
The best part is that you can have unlimited free samples because they’d rather you try it and not like it rather than spending the money on a large bag you don’t enjoy.
You can make your own nut butter too! Almond butter, peanut butter, or honey roasted pb. The honey roasted is to die for.
The various m&ms and and jelly beans drew me in, especially the pink m&ms.
I instead left with a $1.04 bag of this amazingness.
10 minutes from my apartment and office. I might have to go back on my lunch hour for those free samples. 😉
