Today started out with a bowl of my High Protein Scramble with 1 banana instead of 1/2 banana and sweet potato.
Blueberries and 1/2 tbsp chia seeds mixed in – Topped with PB, unsweetened carob chips, and LoveGrownFoods Granola (more on this in a sec )
A warm cup of green mountain hazelnut k-cup coffee with unsweetened almond milk
After teaching 2 spin rides, 2 strength workouts, and a 6 mile run the past two days, my body was craving a day of rest. I listened and decided to sleep in a bit this morning (which felt great by that way!). I have a full day of classes ahead of me, so this little extra time in the morning to relax is actually really nice!
Last night, after an extremely long day at school, I came home to a very pleasant surprise!
A few days ago, I found out I won Round 3 of the health4elf challenge I participated in over the holiday season. Two great bloggers, Elle and Lindsay , put together this awesome challenge which consisted of 3 rounds, 2 week each, where the participants were paired up with each other and became each other’s elf and motivator while tackling the assigned challenges. At the end of Round 3, Elle and Lindsay named me best elf for the week for motivating and encouraging other elfs throughout the 2 weeks. I am so honored to have been picked – thanks Elle and Lindsay !
Lindsay sent me a box of swag for being the winner and I tore it open as soon as I walked through the door last night. It was like it was Christmas all over again!
The box contained some great things from all of the different sponsors!
Kamut wheatberries and pasta, Attune Foods cereal, face lotion, an awesome tote bag, Larabar uber bars, headbands and hair ties, and my favorite, LoveGrownFoods Granola!!! I’ve been wanting to try this granola for a while now since everyone in the blog world is always raving about it – well, now I get to
I’m so excited to try the new flavors, along with all the other goodies in the box
Since elf4health was such a big hit, Elle and Lindsay have set up another challenge called HealthysELF that is very similar to elf4health! I can’t wait for it to start! Head on over to their blogs to read more about it and join us while we focus on staying healthy throughout the year!
It’s time to get to school! Have a great day
Question: What helps you stay on track with your health throughout the year?
Along with these fun challenges, my weekly meal and workout plans help me get through hectic weeks.
