Oh hello. If I actually get this post published on Saturday it would be a real feat. Let’s see if I can pull this off.
Edit- I did NOT pull it off and it is currently Sunday morning.
Friday I went on a long run (18 miles) in the middle of the day. Not the best idea, but you do what you have to do sometimes. Granted, if I didn’t have a couple races coming up I would’ve not done it. I ran slower that slow and got to listen to three Jillian Michaels podcasts though, so it wasn’t too bad.
Fashion Tip #1
When you’re going for a long run, the higher your fuel belt hikes up, the cooler (or more intimidating) you look. Actually, truth be told, I like to wear it higher because it keeps my belly button tucked in. It sometimes causes a bit of belly button chaffing though so if you have an outie, consider yourself warned.
Goodness that picture is unflattering.
Fashion Tip #2-
Fashion Tip #3-
When you really want to impress your husband and have a special date night, make sure to dress up for the occasion.
Even better, spend the time that you should be making dinner in the front yard taking pictures of not only yourself, but all your new Pro Compression socks. (Disclaimer, they are not all for me. Some of them are for my best friend Bob.)
The new calf sleeves are definitely for me though.
I put these puppies on after my long run Friday night. Yep, love them.
That’s a heart friends. Are you impressed?
I also love my Lorna Jane top.
I do not love my “go go Gadget arm” or my armpit. But, I do in fact earn my chocolate one step at a time. I earn a lot of freaking chocolate and both Friday night and last night I sure ate a lot of chocolate with my almond coconut ice cream.
Oh and just in case you care, since I took so long taking pictures outside, this is what I made to really impress STUFT Daddy for our date night dinner.
I roasted a bunch of veggies on the side too (shocker, I know).
We’ve always liked the Orange Chicken from Costco, but that Kung Pao Shrimp was mighty tasty also. So was that cheap pink moscato wine. I don’t remember where I got that. It must have been on sale somewhere.
The Flatout cinnamon crisp bowl.
I know, right? Genius. I’ve been wanting to try this for awhile. And not to toot my own horn, but it worked out even better than I thought.
It’s pretty much the same thing as Flatout cinnamon crisps, but in a bowl.
Here’s what you need.
(Sometimes I use I Can’t Believe it’s Not Butter spray instead of the coconut oil.)
Here’s a little crappy video I made for you on how to make it.
It was obviously a spur of the moment video.
The lighting is a little wacky.
I didn’t even dry my hair for you.
I really need to get some better video equipment.
Flat Kitty makes a cameo.
Here’s the cute little baking cup I use which is also great for baking big STUFT size muffins.
I put everything on it first and then stuff it in the bowl (like a little Flatout flower).
After about 6 minutes in the oven at 375 convection you get this.
Here are all the ways I’ve been filling this gem.
With some fudgy STUFT protein cookie dough.
Here’s what’s usually underneath the chocolate pumpkin protein goo-
Sometimes the PB2 in on the bottom, sometimes the top, it all depends on the day. Ha ha.
Yep, that’s my favorite. I like my “layers”.
I even did it again Friday for the video.
Oh my. Now I want it for breakfast. Ha ha.
Oh, oops, and since I totally bombed on my Flat Kitty Flatterday post yet again, he wanted to make an appearance.
He also wanted to remind you of the best chocolate milk ever that I‘ve been digging after my long runs lately.
Best Chocolate Milk Ever
1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1/2 cup light vanilla soy milk
2 tablespoons dark cocoa powder
sweetener (optional- I use 1-2 stevia packets)
If it’s blended in a Magic Bullet for a bit with a little crushed ice, it’s just that much better.
Okay. I’m out. I’ve got some guys who want to do some window cleaning.
Have a great Sunday!
How’s your weekend going?
