Happy Friday friends. It’s actually Thursday night, but I’m planning on heading out of the house early tomorrow morning for a long run and the only way I can do that successfully is if I avoid turning on the computer. Ha ha.
And since it’s already quite late and I have an early wake up time tomorrow, all I have for you is some random news.
taught a Y40X class (HIIT style workout) and a group strength training class
quick 4 mile treadmill run
News just for you (in no particular order):
The winners of the Chike protein iced coffee giveaway are
Congrats ladies! Email me (email@example.com) your address and I’ll forward it along.
It’s not the best idea to ask someone if they have a baby bump while they’re in the middle of teaching a fitness class. Yep, this happened to me tonight. I was the person being asked. I was even wearing my Spanx because my tummy was sticking out more than the usual diastasis issue. Um, I had to tell the nice lady while I had my mic on and was in front of everyone that no, it was a post-twin belly bump, not a pregnancy one.
Lovely. Oh what I hide from you on the blog when I only show certain pictures. Ha ha.
I’m thinking it may be time to try to address the whole diastasis thing that I meant to work on months ago though. I’ll just add it to my short list of things to do.
Bosc pears and eggs (or egg whites) with cinnamon are a fabulous combination. I tried it the other day and now have been craving it every morning in place of my cinnamon sugar breakfast STUFTwich. As usual the STUFTwich has been getting bigger by the day.
I scramble eggs or egg whites with a thinly cut pear on the stove with a little cinnamon (just like this). Then I put some coconut butter and Artisana walnut butter on a couple slices of my favorite bread
You’ve got to try it.
I did a version today that was similar, but I put it on top of some spinach instead of as a sandwich.
I cooked up the egg whites and pear the same, but then just put it on spinach and drizzled it with coconut oil and walnut butter.
I was all inspired to go grain free this morning after a little paleo chat last night on twitter. Um, yeah, that lasted about 20 minutes or so after I had this bowl and had to make a quick Flatout wrap as a snack. I don’t really think I can do the whole Paleo thing. I love bread too much and I’m still working on baby steps with my new outlook and attempting to limit artificial sweetener.
Freezer tip- separate cooked chicken breast into single serving bags and freeze it for a quick and easy way to add chicken to just about anything later on.
That bag of chicken I got at Costco for $10.99 made quite a lot of baggies. Love that.
Oh and I can’t for the life of me find my big thing of crushed red pepper I thought I bought. I looked for it everywhere tonight and never did find it. It better have made it home.
Lame. I ended up having to use 4 little packets of red pepper I found in a drawer out of desperation for my dinner. Not that my dinner needed any extra spice because I finally picked these little gems.
Aren’t they cute? I only added a little to my dinner tonight, but I’ll be experimenting with them for a bit.
We’ll see how they go over tomorrow morning for the early long run. Ha ha.
I made coconut cookie dough crumble within two minutes of that box being inside the house.
And…… I’m out.
Shorted post ever? Maybe.
Lots of fun stuff one the way like running info, BIG Mizuno news, a pizza recipe (for Tracey) and some fun jugs? Why yes.
I’m trying to get other STUFT Fitness business stuff in order and live my priorities these days. So if these guys tell me not to do my “work” and read with them in our pajamas instead, by golly, I’m going to do it.
We’re also going to try our second attempt on the potty charts with our man Joaquin this weekend. It might be a long one friends. Good thing we stocked up on my favorite wine at Costco. I know for a fact that made it home.
Have a good one!
