Before you think this has turned in to a cooking blog, let me explain:
I got to the gym this morning and did my little mix up of a workout : 15 minutes on the elliptical, 15 minutes on the treadmill, and 15 minutes on the bike. I did arms and abs after that. I left the gym and my legs felt so tight. I don't have a foam roller, but today I was wishing that I did! Next best thing? Yep, that's right...a rolling pin. I rolled my legs out a few times and I was good to go. I think I will need that rolling pin again tomorrow after my 7 miles.
I might start doing Favorite Food of the Week Fridays for a bit. I have been really trying to watch what I put in my mouth this week. I have been counting calories for a couple of months now...not so much to skimp on them to lose weight, but to make sure I am getting enough of what my body needs...a healthy balance of carbs, protein, and fat. I have known about PB2 for a while now, but I had never tried it. Last week, I tried it for the first time and loved it. I loved it so much that I went out and bought some of my own. I mix it up and dip my apple in it...it's good for dipping banana in it too. So, this was my pick for my favorite food of this past week. I love peanut butter, but this is a healthy alternative without all of the fat.
We have some big snow on the way and I am hoping I can make my trek to the gym tomorrow for my seven mile training run on the hamster wheel.
