The Best Movie Ever, the Perfect Multi-Gym and Egg Bites

The Best Movie Ever, the Perfect Multi-Gym and Egg Bites

 

Running has been going well this week. I’ve done two semi tempo runs- one with four timed intervals (6 minutes hard, 2 minute rest) and yesterday I did five miles in the middle of the run at goal marathon pace. My goal marathon pace is about 20 seconds slower than it used to be, but hey, that’s how life goes.

I did watch the best movie ever though while on the treadmill.

McFarland USA is so good. Talk about some running motivation and just an amazing story. It’s not easy to run and cry at the same time. Ha.

 

I have a love/hate relationship with the assisted pull up machine at the gym, but even if I have just a couple minutes it’s one of the go to machines I hit up.

I use if for pull ups and dips. It’s just fabulous.

Well, just the other day we got our own awesome Perfect Multi-Gym®.

Once it’s assembled it installs easily in any door frame and you can just take it down when your done using it. IT doesn’t have to stay up there all the time and you can do a bunch of different moves with it on the ground. How awesome is that?

I’m so darn excited about it.We got our sent to us, but I just checked online and the Perfect Multi-Gym is only $29.95. That’s a darn good deal.

I got ours all set up by myself and admittedly was pretty proud.

Obviously Joaquin had to try it out before anyone else. This guy is strong.

2015-07-28 15.44.47

I got to try it next.

I hadn’t done an unassisted pull up in years, but I actually can still do a couple. It brought back memories of my years as a gymnast and having to do them all the time. Joaquin got a little video for me up on instagram in case you need proof. Ha ha.

I want to use it for some toe touches too. Dang those are hard.

 

In other news, our blogging time is going to be cut down severely very soon when school starts again, but Joaquin is thinking we should just start a fashion blog with our outfits of the day.

What do you think?

Ha ha.

 

I eat eggs every single morning in some form or another. Sometimes they’re scrambles with a bunch of veggies, sometimes I’m drinking egg whites and sometimes they’re rolled up in a gluten free spinach tortilla.

I love hard boiled egg. Actually, I love hard boiled egg whites. I wish I like yolks, but I just don’t. I’m lazy and get annoyed with the whole peeling the hard boiled egg and taking out the yolk thing. So, the other day I had the idea to just bake the egg whites in muffin cups just like I’ve baked the whole eggs before.

2015-07-28 09.52.29

It worked. I just put two egg whites into each cup lined with parchment paper and baked them at 375 for about 25 minutes or so (I didn’t pay attention). They’re good warm or cold and are so easy to just take on the go. Even Joaquin likes them. They’ll definitely be a go to for easy protein snacks once school starts.

Okay I’m off. The boys have big plans today which involved me doing a Google search on how to make lemonade last night before bed. Yeah.

    McFarland USA is awesome. I cried at the end when the boy at the back of the pack placed at the final meet. Kevin Costner was amazing in this role.
