A Winner and a Loser

 

Saturday Workout:

Taught two boot camp style classes and did a little time on the elliptical.

Sunday Workout:

Took an hour spin class and did 20 minutes on the elliptical.

Shoes and socks of the day today were these.

I know, right? Cute Mizuno socks. They make me smile.

 

 

 

The winner of the super cute Reebok PWR tee giveaway is

#104 Kelli.

Congrats! Email me your mailing address and which shirt and size and I’ll pass it along to Reebok. Yay!

 

So, the loser, well, that’s me. Seriously.

I was supposed to go down to the San Diego Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon to meet up with a bunch of fun blogging running buddies.

Well, I was late heading down there. Then got stuck in traffic. Then when I couldn’t find parking I had a minor freak out and wasn’t sure how it was going to be going in a crowded expo with all these runners ready to race the big race.

I was so darn close.

Then something happened. I was already an hour late, I felt guilty for leaving the hubby with sick moody kiddos and just wasn’t ready to go in the expo and pretend I didn’t care that I couldn’t run.

I should’ve gone in and not been selfish and supported all my friends. In hindsight I realize that, but I just couldn’t do it yesterday.

Yep. I’m a loser.

But……..

congrats to all the amazing runners who DID run today and did awesome-

Sarah, Monica, Pavement Runner. Melissa and others. They ROCK!

 

 

I did have a rather relaxing weekend though for a change. I welcomed June with open arms, hope for what the future holds (with running, life, a new job, etc.) and my new favorite morning read.

Oh and 2 cups of unsweetened coffee. Please tell me it grows on you.

Smile

Speaking of coffee, I got the best package yesterday.

IMG_3166

Thanks so much Jess! Definitely a highlight of the weekend!

Oh, speaking of packages, we also got a really great box on our doorstep the other day as well.

IMG_3135

Oh heck yes. The boys LOVE these deliveries. This one had some Chobani Champions tubes in the mix too.

IMG_3136

Oh happy day. I may or may not bribe the boys with these. The only complaint is that they’re not that big. We go through at least 4 tubes at a time.

Smile

We were all a little grumpy this morning.

IMG_3169

So we made a mess in the kitchen and baked some green gobblin’ muffins to make us all feel better.

IMG_3174

I followed the original recipe, but used 2 real eggs instead of the egg substitute and this cup of banana Chobani instead of regular Greek yogurt.

IMG_3167

Oh and I added chocolate chips.

Smile

Let me know if you want me to post a printable of the new version. They’re just a tad better. I mean, what isn’t with chocolate chips?

I did not partake in the muffins. I’m still trying the whole no sugar thing. It’s going to take some serious creativity. And I think I was consuming WAY more artificial sugar than I realized and my body is a little shocked and confused at the moment. Oopsies.

 

Some random eats that I’ve been digging in will be in my next post with the little “STUFT Detox plan” I’ve got going on in my head.

 

We got some really yummy bread the other day too from Eureka Baking Company.

The bread came with some other fun goodies.

Is it weird that I’m super excited about those magnetic pads of paper?

I love that the bread is organic, pretty darn hearty and has tons of seeds. I didn’t sample it, but the Grainiac bread looked like it would be our favorite.

IMG_8826IMG_8825IMG_8832

I slaved over some pretty mean grilled cheese and hummus sandwiches today for lunch for the boys with it.

IMG_8833

It was a hit. (Even though I had to cut off the crust. Do they get over that at a certain age?)

Okay, that’s enough for now. I can’t see the family room floor at the moment under all the toys and Judah is waiting for me to “shop” at his new grocery store register (thanks BB).

 

I’ll be back later tonight (or tomorrow) with the STUFT plan of attack with the whole clean eating, no sugar/artificial sugar thing (a little mix of the 21 Day Sugar Detox, Practical Paleo and It Starts With Food). My feelings won’t be hurt at all if you don’t care, but it’s time I took this whole recovery time seriously and make a few changes. I was not being very nice to my body and sometimes it’s easier to write it down and do it together, yes?

Um, and it was brought to my attention that quite a few hot sauces like sriracha have sugar and that there is no kabocha squash allowed on the 21 Day Sugar Detox. I will be modifying a few things, but still limiting as much as possible.

 

Hope you had a fabulous weekend.

 

Did you get anything fun in the mail recently?

Did you run a race this weekend?

    I did no sugar for a week while I was doing no dairy it was HARD– dairy free was easier– everything has sugar in it but I was able to eat dates and that was my lifesaver! Can you do dates? Made raw brownie bites and home larabars when I needed a sugar fix!

  2. 2

    I’m sorry that you had such a crappy day, but at least you got some pretty cool deliveries! That bread looks awesome and Chobani always rocks! Looking forward to hearing more about your new way of eating.

    My kids are 3 and 5 and are finally eating the crusts on their sandwiches. Giving up coffee is so hard, I just can’t do it. I have gotten better though. I have 1 cup a day instead of 3.

    oh and one more thing there is a jar next to sirachi in grocery store same stuff (no pun :) )but a bit more pasty….no sugar and same awesome heat!

    You’re actually completely allowed to have kabocha squash if you’re an active person (no dates though!) – which it seems you are. Have you reviewed the complete Yes/No List for your selected level as well as the modifications for different populations? It’s REALLY important to review all of it before you start!

    I hope your food changes and sugar detox go well! I know I eat a lot of natural sugars in squash, fruits, vegetables, greek yogurt and coconut milk.

    haha it made me laugh when you said that everything is better with chocolate chips (yes, true!) because today this guy i know posted on facebook that made me totally crack up! itz so dumb, but funny:

    seriously, let’s just face it. anything with raisins in it would be infinitely better with chocolate chips instead.

    for example: a box of raisins.

    Dates are a ridiculously tasty, incredibly SWEET food that really helped me cut back on sugar/artificial sweeteners. Wether eaten alone, or in recipes, they pack a seriously sweet punch…but with health benefits too- WIN! A cure for ant sweet tooth/craving.
    I wish you all the best with the no artificial sweetener thing, cos yeah, it is tough . You can do it :) .

      Can you believe I have never had a date? (Well, that kind anyway.) :) I better find some.

      • sarah says:

        Uuuuuuhhhh…no, no I can’t believe it . I’m shocked. SHOCKED.
        I insist you pick up some medjool dates, like yesterday. Seriously you will looove them! They make The Best healthy cookie dough balls ever( with no sugar/artificial sweetener!!), and are one of my absolute favourite foods, especially stuffed with almond butter or pb *drool*. For real. The term ‘natures candy’ doesn’t even begin to cover how sweet, delicious and caramel-ly these things are :) .

    Sorry to hear your weekend did not go as planned…I think you are handling this remarkably well and are allowed “moments” during your processing of this. Just my 2 cents :) Your mail score was incredible though! On another note…Woo Hoo…I am #104. I sent you an email…Thanks again for the chance to win. So excited!!

  12. 12

    I thought you were going to say: The winner is…. CORI! :) Just kidding.
    I’m sorry about the race- I know how it feels to have one on the books and then you end up not being able to participate. HUGE bummer. Just remember our trials and tribulations are always there to make us stronger and even if you AREN’T currently running those races you’re still inspiring a LOT of people.

    Race, indeed. I ran the Hospital Hill half mary. Holy crap they weren’t lying with the hills. It was my most challenging race to date, but it was incredible. Sadly, my body doesn’t feel “incredible” today, but I had an amazing weekend road tripping with my sole sista and meeting up with my old roomie.

    Best wishes for a speedy recovery :)
