1/6 Menu and Workout Plans: A Yoga Challenge

Posted Jan 06 2013 9:13am

Menu planning this week will be a little different as I am focusing on using up things we have at home, it is amazing what gets lost in the back of the pantry and fridge! Linking up with  Jill  and  Laura . We are on the final week of a gluten free trial for O before adding it back in get a true picture. I know this isn't the greatest if it is an issue but is the way I can tell gluten is my problem. I didn't see a huge improvement at first but as soon as I add it back into my diet, yikes! Since we are only seeing minimal (if any) change in her I think this will give us more answers.

Sunday:  4 bean quinoa chili  & corn muffinsMonday: Fajitas Tuesday: Run Night- Sandwich and fruit Wednesday:  Veggie Pizza Thursday:  Black Bean Butternut Squash Friday: Blueberry Pancakes & roasted potatoes Saturday: Dinner Out

This week I had to give in to a cute toddler requesting to bake muffins and let her dictate the recipe (a little)

Blueberry Banana Buckwheat Muffins
1 cup buckwheat flour
1/2 cup oats (ground to flour)
1/2 cup coconut flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon 
1 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp nutmeg
2 ripe bananas
1/2 cup date paste (1 cup dates & 1/4 cup water boiled until paste consistency)
1 cup non dairy milk
1 tsp vanilla
1 egg
2 cups blueberries

Mix dry ingredients and set aside. In food processor mix bananas, date paste, vanilla & egg. Combine wet (+ milk) into dry ingredients until mixed. Stir in blueberries. Pour into prepared muffin pan. Bake in 350F preheated oven 15-18 minutes. Makes 1 dozen

This past week in workouts wasn't as planned, I am finally able to run again after this nasty virus has hit us all. Now we are only stuck with a lingering cough but I am no longer that person hanging on white knuckled to the treadmill at slower than my long run pace and barely able to breathe. A few weeks until marathon training starts so I have time to get in full health.

Sunday: Morning Long Run & Afternoon Pilates Monday: Morning Weights & Afternoon Run Tuesday: Morning Spin & Evening Run Wednesday: Morning Run & Evening Yoga  Thursday: Morning Weights with trainer & Evening Run Friday: Morning Spin 
Saturday: Morning Run 

Next week I am starting a 30 Day Yoga Challenge at the gym where we are challenging ourselves to do yoga daily for 30 days either at a class or at home. My goal is 1-2 days a week in class and the rest at home. I have one yoga DVD but get bored, Any good websites (free preferred) or DVDs? Anyone want to join me on this challenge? I figure it won't be a bad idea to add in some relaxing exercise, right?

Think I can do this in 30 days!
A reminder that I really need to start studying for my yoga written exam soon!Source
