Happy July friends! I hope you all enjoyed a wonderful 4th of July. I got to kick off the day yesterday by teaching s special holiday spin class.
Our new little addition still hasn’t grown to love his .4 mile walks.
Or our family Starbucks trips, but we’re just giving it some more time. Ha ha.
I bought some of these Power Sheets the other week and have been spending time trying to focus on goal setting and prioritizing.
Writing down my goals and a plan is something I always say I’m going to do, but don’t ever take the time. Then my list of things I feel like I need to do and want to do gets longer and longer instead of actually getting done. I found that in all my writing about goals and stuff that family was always what I was writing down as number one. I’m going to be saying “no” to a lot more things so I don’t feel so all over the place. Man saying “no” is hard though sometimes isn’t it?
it’s so rewarding to just get away and take in every single second with family.
I’ve been forced to slow down a bit this past week as my hip started acting up again. Not really part o my summer plans, but better now than a couple months from now. We still have about 19 weeks (I think) until the New York City Marathon so I’m staying positive. I know the warning signs now when my hip isn’t happy and instead of testing the limits I just starting cross training only since Thursday. Both at home on the elliptical
and at the gym on all my favorite bootie kicking machines (the rope pull, Jacob’s Ladder, Stairmill, elliptical).
I want to make sure I’m still working hard right now and putting in the effort and hard training, but I don’t want to bother my hip. It already feels better after not running on it for 4 days, so we’ll test it out a bit this week before my prolotherapy appointment on Friday.
In other news I discovered how to make the perfect at home protein vanilla latte. That’s pretty exciting right?
Here’s how I do it:
Chill coffee that the hubs made like 2 hours prior (not ideal, we’re saving for a Keurig). Blend 1/2-1 scoop of Vega Sport vanilla protein with 1/2-1 cup of nondairy milk of choice (I use Silk almondmilk). Pour the awesome dairy free protein creamer you just made over the chilled coffee.
I’ve also been back to baking. I made the paleo banana bread from the Against All Grain cookbook.
It was a big hit and I’m really excited to try out a bunch of her other recipes.
I also revisited my own STUFT Seedy Bread recipe.
I had forgotten how much I love it!
Oh and i finished off yet another NuttZo Powerfuel jar.
This time I added my homemade two ingredient heathy dark chocolate, a cut up apple and some cinnamon.
It was delish!
I’ll be back soon with more HIIT chat since I may have to rely on that a bit more in the next few weeks, but more importantly we’re having a webinar THIS AFTERNOON!
It’s my first webinar ever that I’ll be cohosting and it’s going to tell you all the basics- what essential oils are, why you need to use a high quality brand and how you can incorporate them in your daily life to boost your mental and physical health, beauty and more!
I know since I’ve started using doTERRA oils I’ve been incorporating them into so many aspects of our daily life (diffusing for better sleep, rolling on topically to deal with stress, drops in my water I’m drinking, etc.) and it has been so awesome.
Yay yay yay! See you this afternoon, yes?
Have a wonderful day!
