Hey friends!! Hope you’ve had an AMAZING Friday!! As you may know, every Friday, I post my FAVOURITE things from the day!! So here ya go!!
1. Awesome Friday Breakfast: Coconut Banana Bread In a Bowl !
I’ve had this Banana Bread in a Bowl thing SO many times this week, but trust me friends it is SO YUMMY and quick and easy and you HAVE to try it!!
Went to a yoga class today. I learned a) that I am still pretty inflexible, b) that I don’t stretch well enough (HIPS!!) and c) that yoga is HARD. Okay, so I already knew that last one, but seriously my arms and abs are SORE right now!! Yoga is awesome
Sweet potato-raisin oatmeal. (1/2 cup oats, 1 cup vanilla soy milk, 1.25 cups water, 1 small skinned+microwaved sweet tater, raisins and cinnamon). I’m tellin’ ya, breakfast for lunch is AWESOME and highly recommended
That’s the ‘check-out-my-shoes’ dance, FYI.
I was told to do a mile ‘recovery’ run on grass, and so I killed two birds with one stone by walking the dog as well. We walked 2 miles and ran a third. I loved it, but it wasn’t a successful recovery run!! I was told to run it 2-3 mins slower than my average run pace, but kept hitting around the 6 min/mile mark, and having to slow myself down…next time I’ll set my Garmin to bleep at me if I get too fast!! It was fun being with Buddy though! He’s my baby
He was exhausted afterwards poor thing! It was his first time running with me! And NO shin pain during the run, but some after. So icing with broccoli, for all that goodness, whilst watching Gilmore Girls and drinking choccie milk is the way to go:
Enjoyed on top of soy yoghurt. I ate SO MUCH of this today…so darn good!! I just took my favourite granola bar recipe (Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip) and used chocolate PB and no choccie chips and made granola out of it!! Tastes AMAZING and granola is possibly THE most addictive substance on the planet!!
And last but not least…
I still haven’t gotten over meeting her and RUNNING with her yesterday!! I wore my t-shirt all day today and slept in it too. What can I say, hygiene is my thing!
AND I have a Paula-related surprise to share tomorrow…can’t wait to share it with you guys!!
What was one of YOUR Friday Faves? Share with me pretty please!!
Brownie batter, or brownie? Cookie dough or cookie? TOUGH choice!! Depends on the brownie, but usually I’m a batter/cookie dough kinda girl. Really, I could be a raw foodie- who needs an oven!
Do you have a running buddy, human or dog? I sadly don’t have a human running buddy, but now my dog Buddy is my new running buddy!! I’ll build his stamina and soon he’ll be running marathons, you see! Watch out Bostoners!!
Have a GREAT weekend friends, and don’t forget to check out my guest post!!
