How’s everyone’s weekend rounding out? Nothing to complain about over here! I was actually surprised at how fine I felt yesterday after the half marathon. I tried to nap…but was a little antsy. So I did some laundry, walked Niko, hit up some grocery stores, and then we had some friends over to play bags and drink some beer. Probably not the best way to recover, but luckily I still feel fine today 🙂 Plus. it was a lot of fun 🙂 And it sounds cheesy, but I’m still basking in that half marathon glooowww 🙂 Today I have some soreness in my calves and quads, but that’s it.
Today started out with a deeelicious breakfast:
It was a banana, cream cheese tofutti, and maple syrup wrap in an Ezekiel tortilla and grilled in a pan on the stove. OMG. So good. I’m definitely going to make this again with some Paige-ified tweaks.
I had a client to train afterwards, and then headed out to run some errands – Pet Co, Dick’s, and Target. Nice lil’ Sunday morning 🙂
When I came back, I cleaned my little heart out! Got a lot done…finally.
I’m trying to make up for my lack of veggies yesterday. This smoothie contained frozen banana, kale, spinach, protein powder, and almond milk. Plus an Ezekiel muffin with some spectacular almond butter:
picked this gem up at the expo on Friday night. It about knocked my head off…not gonna lie!
Sprouts n’ Sparagus
Sweet tater fries
Homemade vegetarian baked beans.
I saw that the canned version I had in the pantry contained HFCS, so I opened a can a beans and went to town on making my own sauce:
‘Twas a bit thick though, so I’m going to give it another go before I post the recipe. That reminds me…I really need to get working on that recipe tab. I promise it will get done soon.
After dinner the hubski and I watched a couple 24 episodes while he worked and I folded laundry… oh, and then I made us some puppy chow popcorn!
and stir and add nooch. Recipe to come soooon on not-there-yet- recipe tab 😉
Well it’s getting pretty late now, and I’m pretty sure my bod needs a wee bit more rest to aid in its recovery. I’m going to go make like Niko and chillax:
What a great weekend all in all 🙂
I’m also pretty excited for tomorrow morning (what?! excited for a Monday?!) because Shane is going to give working out before work with me a try. We have a kick-booty work out planned, and I’m pretty pumped to have another workout partner. He usually works out after work, so hopefully he doesn’t mind the a.m. sweat session!
So tomorrow night I will be posting a few life changes, one of them being pretty major. Exciting and crazy things going on in life right now. I know I’ve been alluding to them for quite a while, but I finally get to share them I can’t wait to share with you all!
Have a maahh-velous Monday, all!
Do you try to compensate your fruits and veggies the day after not having many at all? I’m pretty sure my body craved them today, but I was also very conscious of my lack of vegetables, so I’m sure it was a mental thing too. But I think I got em all in today 😉
