Happy SATURDAY! To all you running your half-marathons today, GOOD LUCK! I wish you all the best. :)
I have a long run to do today, myself. Not nearly as long as a half, but a 6 miler. That's the longest run I've done since my hips were injured. Wish me luck!
Sorry there weren't very many posts yesterday. I had a crazy busy day. It started off with my breaky post, then I headed over to my friend's salon to get my hair cut and colored (I LOVE being a blonde again).
After that it was straight home to change for my first Bikram class. It was amazing!! I felt great during the class, but after the class, I got a chill from going outside in my sweaty, yucking clothes - not smart. I'm not sure what I was thinking with that one. Bikram is wonderful, the poses are challenging, but can all be simplified. I loved it. The teacher asked if any one was a new when we got in, I raised my hand, and she helped my through the entire class. It was awesome. My friend and I bought a unlimited weekly pass, so I'm gonna make sure I get there a few more times this week! Can't say enough good things about it.
When I came home from class, I had to immediately shower and change because D and I were going out for dinner with his Nana and cousin. We went out to a restaurant in Edmonton, called Moxies. It is a chain restaurant. They are located all over Canada (not sure if they're in the States). I had the salmon sandwich with nan bread, no sauce and a side salad with no feta and dressing on the side. I was happy to see that D's family is as high maintenance as I am, while ordering their meals! They all made similar changes to their meals.
Here are some of the eats I pictured for you yesterday.
This was a mixed green salad with half a cucumber. The white stuff on top is a mix of one egg white and one whole egg. I cooked this mixture in the microwave and chopped it up. The dressing was Frank's hot sauce and balsamic vinaigrette. YUMO (if I can borrow Rachael Ray's saying ;))!
I knew I would be needed some carbs to hold me over through yoga and unto dinner, so I had a small bowl of Kashi cereal and vector with almond milk. So tasty.
I had one of these bars, while I was at the hair dressers. The peanut butter flavor, which happens to be the best flavor.
This morning I knew I needed a slurp and gulp! So yummy. I love the chocolate flavored breakfast cookies.
- 1/2 cup oats
- 1/2 scoop vanilla whey powder
- 1/2 banana
- 1 tbsp natural peanut butter
- 1/2 tbsp chia seeds
- 1/2 tbsp cocoa powder
- unsweetened chocolate almond milk
It really hit the spot this morning!
Can you tell that my hair is lighter? I love it!! Almost as much as I love my slurp and gulp ;)
I'll see you all in a little while!
