Happy Monday EVERYONE! A brand new week lies in front of us, what shall we make of it? For me this week is a lot less hectic then the past few, and I am looking forward to that:)
Last night Hubby and I went bowling and had dinner with 5 other couples, it was a BLAST! We were supposed to go to hockey game but it sold out. I think I had more fun at bowling.
Giving the serious bowling faceâ€¦NOT!
This picture is PSYCHODELIC!
They all look so into the game..
The lovely ladies!
After Bowling we went to Claim Jumpers, I feel like we hit up this restaurant a lot. There are so many wonderful choices there so I donâ€™t mind.
I was going to get my usual salad, but I wasnâ€™t in the mood so I went with the Jamaican Sweet Potato. My friend Jeremy always gets this and I always drool when they bring it out!
INGREDIENTS: Tender Chicken Roasted with a Blend of Jamaican Spices and Herbs. Tossed with Scallions, Cilantro Leaves, Minced Red Pepper, Tropical Papaya Relish and Drizzled with Clover Honey:)
This sweet potato was amazing, soft and sweet to perfection! I also loved the Jamaican shredded chicken on top, it was full of flavor and juiciness. I asked for the papaya relish on the side, itâ€™s full of honey and sweetness, I didnâ€™t want to over do it. I finished most of it, oops, it was just that good but brought the rest home. The avocado on the side is from Hubbyâ€™s burger.
This morning I woke up late, around 7am felt great! My body is still pretty sore from Saturdays run so I had a stretching session with Pink. It felt AMAZING! I am hoping that by tonight’s AKB class I will feel a lot more lose and ready to teach. After such a heavy dinner last night I went with a lighter breakfast and decided to start my week off with a MONSTER +PROTEIN!
Itâ€™s not green this time:( But itâ€™s still a MONSTER!
The Mix: 1 cup soy milk, 1/2 banana, 1/4 cup of frozen cherries(thanks Kirsten), 1/4 cup of blueberries, 1 tbsp of Natural PB, 1 tbsp of flax seed,handful of spinach, 1/2 scoop of Vanilla Whey Protein.
This was my first time adding protein to these shakes, I am hoping the extra protein keeps me fuller longer. I loved the taste, it had a lot less bitter after taste.
MAKE A DIFFERENCE MONDAY: WE ARE THE LIGHT!
When was the last you wrote a hand written letter to a friend or family member?? Not a text, or an email, or even an IM. I know that technology has made communication with others so instant, and there is no waiting for the post man! It is nice donâ€™t get me wrong, but there is something about a handwritten card or letter that seems so special, donâ€™t you think? I love getting snail mail, itâ€™s so fun to open and read and cherish!
Here is my challenge for you and myself this week, pick 3 people that you love and appreciate and write them a hand written note telling them how much you appreciate them, or even just a note to say hello and that you were thinking of them. I promise it will be a light to their week:)
WRAP IT UP
I am in week 11 of my Boston training, only 4 more weeks to go!!! Only 2 more long runs before the big day:) I am getting so excited, I am planning on a blogger meet up for sure so stay tuned for more details! Also this week Hubby is on a fun new eating plan that I will be posting about this afternoon.
Have a HAPPY MONDAY!!!! Take each minute a breath at a timeâ€¦.
