Hello beautiful people! I hope you are all having a fabulous week.
My week has been wonderful but incredibly busy at the same time. Only two more days which means pack, pack, pack. We're only supposed to take four or five pairs of clothing (we're doing laundry while we're there), but clearly, I've already failed at that....
Oh well. Everything fit with plenty of room to spare, so I should be good. But ahhhhh!!! Only two more days!!!! (Yes, I'm excited ;) I'm going to try to post a few times while I'm there - I'm not bringing my computer, but my dad is and said I could use his computer (thanks, Dad!). Although, I won't be able to do any commenting, so sorry about that. :(
I don't have many foodie pictures for you all, but here's a few.
Peanut butter spelt bagel (recipe when I get back!) spread with sweet potato butter, raw carrots, cucumber, and bell pepper, cottage cheese with tomatoes, paprika, and garlic powder.
Green monster made with a frozen banana, Greek yogurt, raw oatmeal, cinnamon, almond milk, frozen raspberries, flaxseeds, and about 2/3 bag fresh spinach. Twas yummy and refreshing!
In preparing for the trip, I had my favorite store-boughten Greek yogurt.
I enjoyed it along wiiiiiiiiiiiith....
Steamed broccoli, carrots, and cauliflower mixed with a red pepper spread.
Adorable little plum. (How can fruit be so cute?!)
Aaaaaand a big handful of my favorite crackers EVER!
Then this morning, I went running out on the track! I did a quarter mile jog, streches, and warm up excercises first. Then I did three 100 meters full speed and one 200 meter full speed. My legs began to cramp and burn since I did a hard leg workout yesterday, and so I ended with two more 100m only going half speed. My appetite was ravenous when I got back as I hadn't eaten before I left (eating before running makes my stomach turn upside down!), and so, off I went to the kitchen! I ended up with one of my favorite breakfasts - oatmeal! But it wasn't just any oatmeal, it was oatmeal that had three of my favorite foods - oats, peanut butter, and chocolate! (I also had a big glass of water and fresh berries!)
Rolled oats with a chocolate bar melted in and topped with Justin's honey peanut butter.
What's your favorite post-workout meal/snack?
Do you like Greek yogurt? If so, what's your favorite brand?
Well, that's it for now! I best go work on packing. Next time you here from me, I will likely be in Greece!!
I'll miss you guys!
