Time & Weather
We have had a week of GORGEOUS weather. It has been awesome taking Nick to the park, going on runs outside, and sitting on the back deck. I don't want it to go away! I'm wearing one of the Bondi bands above - they came yesterday and I LOVE them! Stay tuned for a review!
Protein! I've been trying to be conscious of protein and brought back Kashi Go Lean for breakfast - with milk. It is best with almond milk - sweet taste! But skim milk gives an extra protein boost. It's funny that I had to have cheerios for the first 14 weeks or so of pregnancy but now I can go for oatmeal or kashi.
For lunch, I've been having sandwiches with spinach, cheese and hummus +nutritional yeast sauce grilled with olive oil. They have been tasty! For other protein sources, milk + protein powder has been helping at night, bean patties, and cheese. What other sources do you eat that are vegetarian?
I have been thinking about different times of day - the best time of day to run or when I feel the best, the time of day where all I want to do is jam cookies down my throat...the time of day when I feel the most relaxed, most tired, most energized... so I'll ask some questions to you:
What time of day do you feel you have the most productive runs?
For me, it is around 5pm at night. I feel like my energy is good and my legs are quick to warmup. Unfortunately, most of the time I run first thing in the morning or mid-morning and it takes a long time to warm up, and my speed isn't there as much as later in the day.
What time of day do you have cravings?
About an hour after dinner, all I want is sweets. I've been trying to make protein shakes at this time to avoid the call for sugar. It works sometimes!
I didn't make pancakes this morning - but I have a recipe I want to try - maybe later today!
With all the nice weather, I don't want to do anything inside!
