Why hello. I’m going to “try” to bust this post out as quickly as possible before making dinner. I have about 15 minutes or so. Hoping for a miracle here. Ha.
Monday- After my last post I taught spin and a couple classes at the Y later.
Today- Ran 3 miles on the treadmill. Not totally pain free, but took it easy. 2 miles at 9 or so pace and the third at 8:30ish. I walked a bit at the beginning to try to fix my hair. He he.
Still rocking the Mizuno Wave Sayonaras I love them.
Quick shoe change and then taught a BOSU class- intervals, weights, all kinds of good stuff.
Later in the afternoon hopped on the elliptical for 20 minutes only because the boys had swim lessons and I really wanted to read my new Runner’s World magazine. I bribe myself like that.
So, some things to try.
Oh, well, first of all, I made the mistake of NOT wearing my Halo Headband to workout today and I would say DO NOT try that. Once you get used to them keeping the sweat off your face, you don’t want to go back. Oh, and there’s just a few more hours to enter the giveaway.
Um, yeah, try to get out of the store quickly late at night after a really long Monday teaching classes. I’m convinced it’s impossible. I should really learn to just go straight home.
I found my new favorite unsweetened dark chocolate there though. After not having sweets for so long, I really like this Ghirardelli 100% cacao bar.
And yes, our chickens really like to photo bomb (and poop everywhere) even at night.
I found this cool Zhena’s Gypsy Tea at Sprouts last night too. I couldn’t decide what flavor I wanted so I ended up buying 4 different ones.
Nice. Being indecisive is expensive.
I tried the caffeine free Chocolate Chia one last night after dinner in the proper mug of course and with some appropriately thin apple slices.
It was pretty darn good just plain. Now I have to try the rest of the flavors.
If you haven’t tried making a smoothie with either kale or egg whites you really should.
Today’s egg-cellent mocha smoothie had some fresh organic kale in it and it was quite fabulous.
You can’t taste either (kale or egg whites) and the egg whites give it a good protein kick. The whites from my ginormous jugs are pasteurized and safe to use just as is. (Gosh, that doesn’t sound very good does it?)
Try to not shed a tear when you watch your boys swim 3 feet on their own during their lessons. Such a proud mama moment (until they refuse to get out of the pool and cause a big scene).
Try this snack I’ve had about 3 days in a row now.
It’s so darn good. Today I put a little extra dark cocoa powder on it just because.
And, yeah, try to have just one of these new muffins we made this morning.
They may be the best version of green gobblin’ muffins yet. I changed up the recipe a bit and will get that to you soon.
I tried not to take it personally, but I’m fairly certain our Trader Joe’s purposely only had one small cart left when they saw us coming so both my boys couldn’t cause their usual mayhem in the store when we stopped there this evening.
And whelp, if you’re traveling, make sure you try these mini moves. Yes?
And now that I’ve failed at getting this posted in 15 minutes, I’m going to try to see how fast I can whip up some jicama nachos. Yep, that’s right. Jicama nachos for dinner. Brilliant, I know
Oh, and I’m also going to try to finally get back to comments left on here. I’ve left quite a few people hanging and I’m so sorry. Tonight is dedicated to trying to catch up with all of that.
I’m also going to try once again to get to sleep at a decent hour. I failed at that too last night. Oops. Why is it so hard?
Have a good one.
PS- Blogging is hard without my darn laptop. Pooper scooper.
What did you try today or what are you going to try tonight?
Anything new? Anything fun?
