This is going to be quick. Gosh- I feel like I say that a lot, but today I’ve really got a lot on my plate.
My poor legs haven’t fully recovered from the race last weekend which is making me a little nervous about this weekend’s race. Yikes. Oh well, I’ve got a couple days. I really need to invest in a foam roller (and learn how to use it).
I’m a little excited about it.
That’s almost as exciting as this ginormous cauliflower I found at the Farmer’s market the other day.
This huge thing was $3.
Don’t mind the bedhead or pajamas, but I wanted to make sure you saw how big it is.
Oh and these guys……
Monday they “hated” the carwash.
Yesterday they were all about “going to the car wash and the zoo”.
I haven’t been feeling too hot the past few days. My tummy has been a little off lately again since the race. I’ve been letting some dairy slip back into my diet here and there and I don’t think it’s a good thing.
A homemade Flatout pizza and a gluten free one with cheese. Oops. I couldn’t resist.
I guess I have to realize the whole nondairy change might have to be more of a lifelong thing. I’m okay with that. I feel so much better when I’m off dairy, but it’s hard sometimes.
I made myself feel better by ordering some delicious nondairy bars from All Star Health.
I’m loving these Clif Mojo bars more and more every day. My favorite is the chocolate coconut that they sell at Trader Joe’s, but the prices were so good online for these that I thought I’d go all out and buy a little variety.
I also stocked up on some GU (also from All Star Health).
Holy GU stock. I better sign up for some more races just to get through all this. Ha!
Speaking of races, check out this cool shirt from the nice people over at Competitor and the Rock “n’ Roll Race Series. They have races all over the place all year long.
I’m trying to convince STUFT Daddy to take a “race-cation” this summer for the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Chicago in July. He doesn’t seem too excited. I’ll keep trying though. Ha.
Some random food stuff before I go.
Remember this almond milk plus protein I bought the other day?
I’m not impressed. I’m going to stick with my standard Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Breeze or Trader Joe’s Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk. Less calories, better taste and you can always add some protein in if you want.
I ventured away from my favorite wine the other day when we were celebrating the race and tried this Blackstone Red Blend.
I liked it.
I also made a gluten free version of the Coach’s STUFT Straw-nana Cereal Cake the other day for the boys and it was a big hit.
I just subbed in this gluten free pancake mix
and used this gluten free cereal for the crumb topping.
It turned out pretty darn good.
Yeah, I like to match things.
My plates and cups always have to match. Anyone else?
That same gluten free pancake mix also made some pretty tasty hooligan pancakes the other day as well.
Okay, I’m off. I think I need to whip up that fruit crumble and then we’re going to try a little stroller jog to loosen up my legs a bit.
We may be paying a visit to Soup Plantation later today with Grandma D and man alive do I know how to build a salad at that place. He he.
Have a great day!!!
