I cannot believe that it is Friday already… this week has just flown by and I have not done much in the way of workouts at all. I am promising myself a kettlebell workout this afternoon, and I sure would like to get in a run tomorrow – it is going to be dry but cool so that is good.
I have done some walking, and I did try a Zumba DVD – and I love the dance moves… very fun and invigorating. But honestly, after listening to ‘zumba Zumba ZUMBA’ and the same beat for 15 minutes, I had had quite enough of it and turned it off. It just got so annoying. I will have to find a different DVD. Surely there is some other music and beat that I could Zumba to!
I took part in HBBC 2012 over the past several weeks and was lucky to win a pair of Pro Compression Marathon socks during one of the Twitter chats. They arrived yesterday so this morning I put them on, first thing! Love love love. Thanks to Amanda, again, for the challenge and all of the work she put into it.
I have been very busy in my kitchen this week, doing food prep and working on some new recipes because a lot of my go-to meals are not allowed on this Whole30 Paleo Challenge I am doing right now. No protein powders allowed, no 'faux' baking using almond or coconut flours. And I am trying to find new ways to eat eggs… this Sweet Potato and Flax EggCake recipe came from an experiment… rather good too! I thought it was going to be an omelet but it came out more like a pancake so I went with it!
And I am still loving these ‘healthy bowls’ too. This one has a cut up apple, some flax, some hemp, raisins, and cinnamon, with a couple of tablespoons of unsweetened vanilla Almond Breeze stirred into the mix. Tasty and filling.
I started my new part time job yesterday. I have done 5 training sessions and yesterday was my first time out on my own. I am working as a receptionist at a couple of different Weight Watchers meetings and I love it so far! This little leather-bound book that I got in a giveaway from Angie Newton a few months ago is just the perfect little record book/journal for my work notes. It says believe on the front.. and I love it.
