We somehow got caught up in the middle of a Sunday group from our local Running Room store and kept pace with them for a few blocks till they veered off in a different direction. Actually it was kinda fun and that is something I may pursue.
We came home and drank lots of water and then I stretched while I put together a wonderful breakfast for us both. I had part of a leftover baked sweet potato in the fridge so mashed that together with some vanilla protein powder, eggs, flax, and cinnamon, and made waffles... Mmmm... topped with a bit of syrup (sugar free for me) and some shredded coconut. I am good for hours now.... oops, sorry for the fuzzy pic!
Here are some things I am looking forward to this week:
Continuing our Metabolic Aftershock workouts... we are doing this 9 week series again and taking a break from traditional strength training. The leg workouts are killer and I
Eating these yummy cherry tomatoes that are growing in our balcony garden. Does anything taste better than fresh tomatoes? I cannot imagine what it would be.
Reading the inspiring and motivating articles in these Weight Watchers publications.
Making more of these lovely little High Fibre Egg White Muffins. You can find the recipe on my food blog We can begin to feed... if you are interested. I love them for after workout snacks, particularly on my low carb days. And they are really good slathered in nut butter or creamy cheese.
Trying this recipe for Tumeric Tea or Golden Milk. Isn't that a lovely name? I am jumping on the tumeric bandwagon and going to make sure to have a cup of this every day this week. On my low carb days, I will use stevia instead of honey as the sweetener. I have been reading more and more about the health benefits of tumeric, particularly when it comes to inflammation and I am going to see if it will help me.
Tasting these new North Coast Naturals vegan protein powders that just arrived in my mail box. Thank you NCN. I can't wait to use them in some new recipes.
Planning a little trip off-Island in September. We are heading for a week's getaway to Vancouver, and a bit of shopping in Bellingham/Burlington, WA and then to Port Townsend, WA to visit another old and dear friend. It involves 3 different ferry trips and lots of scheduling but I am looking forward to seeing some family, some friends and doing some cross-border shopping. Yeah, the exchange rate on the Canadian dollar is awful right now!
So, what are you looking forward to this week?
Have you used ENERGYbits or RECOVERYbits before?
