Ah, the sigh of relief.
Here I was so worried I was losing my love of baking, eating and running and all the while it was all just part of my transion and journey through becoming fit Now I’m eating better, cooking more and doing intense workouts that I love just as much as most of my runs!
Just goes to show you in life change is something to embrace and sometimes when we think we’re failing we’re actually just following our path and jumping into the next phase of LIVING the life we were born to
Logan and I went to the rec centre to swim yesterday and I finally bought a season family pass! YES! I AM going to try swimming as a form of exercise. I have speedwork on today’s workout agenda but I think next week I will begin to go to the adult length swim sessions I’m excited.
*yep, that is a Dora bandaid, or “bandi” as Logan calls them.
As I mentioned on my facebook page yesterday – why is it that I feel more self conscious in a one piece bathing suit?? I’d almost prefer to have my buddha belly gut hanging out then have a flat chest and high displayed hips and thighs! YOWZA!
anyone else’s hair go crazy after being in the water??? or is it just mine?
thankfully the length tames those waves. If I cut it shorter people tend to refer to me as a lion whenever I let my hair dry naturally
I made Oh She Glows avocado chocolate pudding yesterday after Helen mentioned it in the comments on my last post and I LOVED IT! it was literally amazing why have I been eating so unhealthy when I really don’t need to?? it just blew my mind!!! I highly recommend trying it.
Logan never complained either. The only thing I did differently is that I added some plain greek yogurt and a half of a banana (oh and I used 70% dark chocolate instead of chocolate chips….really I should just post the whole recipe). I guess I did change it a lot! So I’ll post the full thing tonight!
Colin refused to try it I didn’t even tell him what was in it but now you can be sure he won’t We both felt like he was lacking on the blog though – so here he is modeling his “healthy” dinner…
..don’t quit your day job Colin. Pillsbury isn’t about to give you a food modeling career…though you do make those pizza pops look good
I also made two different healthier oatmeals! one for me and one for Logan! This new eating has inspired me to cook/bake again! I’m just so excited, as mentioned above, because I completely thought I had lost my love of making food!
And….made some healthy “ice cream” too! YUM!!!!
I’ll post this recipe with the pudding both are easy to make and delicious!
DON’T FORGET TO ENTER MY ZENSAH FITNESS BRA GIVEAWAY!!!!! (closes Sunday @ midnight)
1. bikini or one piece?? why?
bikini. Although for whatever reason when I’m at a public pool I always wear a one piece, for one I’m with Logan and two I feel weird wearing a bikini inside – just doesn’t make sense to me. Bikini’s are for tans!!!
2. does your significant other/family eat healthy? or are they like mine
3. avocados – YAY or NAY???
YAY!!!! I love them. On toast, as a dip, guacamole, in pudding, on top of grilled chicken breast <—- so good!
4. do you go through waves of inspiration??
remember how I was all about my home over the last month? – I’ve found that I have to stop judging myself and ride the wave that is my current interests i end up getting a lot more accomplished when I allow myself to fall completely into something
5. what does your hair look like naturally??
a wavy mess!
