Ran 9 miles on the treadmill at the gym. Not sure exactly how long it took, but I didn’t go fast because I just wasn’t feeling it.
My 60 minutes was up at 7.6 miles and I had to stop and restart the treadmill. That really annoys me. I seriously debated hopping off at that point and calling it good enough, but I decided to start it again to finish off my 1.4 miles.
Glad I did.
Not glad my ear was sticking out like that for goodness knows how long, but hey, oh well.
An hour and a half later I taught a 45 minute BOSU class. I didn’t even shower in between or change clothes. I did wipe down with an Action Wipe though, so I guess that counts for something.
Um, yeah, I was sweating some serious garlic though today. Might have something to do with what I added to my dinner last night.
Have you ever seen garlic like that by the way? That is garlic, isn’t it? Andrew told me it was.
We started the day off with some interesting early cleaning around here.
So to reward ourselves, in between my run and my class we had a little breakfast date. These pretty cool dudes didn’t really seem to mind my garlic stench too much, although Joaquin did say “I smell something” when he gave me a hug. Lovely.
Our hot date was at Panera. I was starving and I figured we could do the least amount of harm there.
I went with a whole grain bagel and brought my own spread. Yep, I’m that girl.
We had some time to kill afterwards so we ventured over to wave to the dancing man we look for every day.
I’m fairly certain he can dance better than me.
Before I show you a bunch of food pictures, I need to say that I don’t post everything I eat on here. It takes too much time and thought. I don’t show you when I eat an entire bag of my favorite Love Grown Foods Cocoa Goodness granola (which happens more than I’d like to admit) or when I ‘m super tired and don’t feel like cooking and beg Andrew to pick up some pizza for us (which also happens more than I’d like to admit).
But, that happens though. To be totally honest, it has been happening a little too often lately. I have not been making the best eating choices for myself or the boys so my goal for this week is to really try to clean up all of our eating and cook healthy meals. So far, so good (with the exception of their muffins from Panera this morning-oops).
And……well, I eat a lot friends. I have to. Always have, always will.
The only reason I show all my concoctions is just in case you want to try them or because I think I’m cool or something for coming up with them. Ha ha.
So, with that said,
here are some seriously honorable mentions in the eating department so far this week.
I discovered a new protein bar that I’m pretty blown away by.
Its called a Quest Bar. It’s fabulous. I’ve only gotten to try a few flavors, but this banana nut muffin one rocked my socks off on the way to the gym.
You’ll be hearing more about these bars for sure, but the nutritional stats are pretty darn awesome with 20 grams of protein and about 17-18 grams of fiber. I can already tell I’m going to be a bit obsessed.
Speaking of obsessed, I came dangerously close to running out of Silk PureAlmond Unsweetened Vanilla the other day. That won’t be happening again anytime soon.
I’ve been making creamy dreamy ice cream and the other day I even toasted my own oats mixed with a little maple syrup and cocoa powder for a single serving of granola. I didn’t measure anything, but it came out pretty darn well.
I’ll work on getting a recipe together on it.
I even tried roasting some new veggies tonight.
Dinner was roasted peas
and turkey burgers. Um and yes, it was Meredith who told me to roast carrots.
She is brilliant.
I wrapped my turkey burger in Swiss chard.
The boys’ dinner looked like this. I have to try the vegetables out on them just a few at a time.
.Speaking of vegetables, I’m convinced you can roast just about any vegetable with a little nonstick spray, seasoning and garlic salt at 375 or 400 convection for 20-30 minutes and it will be fabulous.
I also think I owe you a couple days of not talking about random food after way too much food chat in this post.
Sorry about that.
Okay, off to bed I go to be ready for the new morning routine around here.
