Happy hump day!
Want to see a cool way to squat?
Check this one out. I do this one pretty much every week at my BOSU class.
Squat down with one foot on the floor and one on the middle of the BOSU.
Then extend your base leg keeping your chest up and lift the leg out to the side.
Yep. We love it.
I’m back on the early morning treadmill running train over here. Thank goodness. It was about time I stopped sleeping through my alarm.
I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again. It’s all about the Netflix for those early morning runs.
I’m a week late watching this movie, but I forgot how cute it is.
I did 9 miles at an easy pace yesterday and 12 this morning at an easy pace also. (Today was split into two runs actually- 7 early morning miles and 5 a little later. Mommy duties and a class in between. Whatever works.)
We’ve been all about snacks lately. Maybe it’s a phase or something. Who knows.
Thought I’d show you some of them just because.
STUFT egg-rito snack for the road this morning. Pretty much the same as the scramble, but in a “rito”.
I’ve been loving this combo lately. Carrots and SunButter.
That combination also occasionally goes well with a Fuji apple and some chicken and more of that bacon hot sauce (you know, if dinner is just too far away).
Oh and snacks are always better with a side of silly 4 year olds and some sunshine.
On special days, like yesterday, we go all out and visit the Farmer’s Market and the local Gelato shop.
On not so special days, like today, we go with a little homemade protein almond milk ice cream.
Right? Baked in a banana with a little peanut free NuttZo and cinnamon.
Bake on parchment paper lined cookie sheet at 375 convection for about 10 minutes or so.
Remove peel and transfer to plate or do whatever you want actually to eat it.
When you’re going to have one, you have to have it the right way. Ha.
Okay, so some favorites to leave you with.
Favorite choice I made yesterday was letting Joaquin talk me into an impromptu trip to the playground.
High fives yo.
Favorite thing we did at the playground- a three person slide train. Which just happen to be the slowest train ever by the way. Ha ha.
Seriously, love it.
Favorite new songs I used in my spin class this morning:
Best Day of My Life- American Authors
Man in the Mirror- Michael Jackson (Great for climbing. We did a standing climb with sitting and pushing a heavy gear on the chorus. Fantabulous.)
Favorite little thing I read yesterday morning.
Don’t take the easy route because of a fear of failure, you need to follow your heart to be remarkable. And don’t just say you want to do it, DO IT!
Hope you’re having a good week.
Enjoy your evening!
Favorite random thing from the past two days.
Favorite snack combination.
Favorite romantic comedy ever. (I need some new ones to add to my Netflix.)
