The Perfect Sunday
|August 14, 2011||Posted by Sweet Tooth Runner under Uncategorized|
HEY friends!! Hope you’ve had a great weekend!! If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you’ll know how much I LOVE Sundays, for my typical Sunday Trio: Pancakes, Church, Long Run! After missing this for about a month now thanks to trips abroad, it is SO GOOD to get back to my favourite routine!
It all started with the pancakes. I should learn my lesson about waking up early enough to not have to sprint to church, which is very uncomfortable with a belly full of pancakes…
Double Chocolate Brownie Batter Pancakes. Tasted like heaven. Especially with added PB (instead of applesauce) and drizzled with maple syrup. Make. These. NOW!! I also had a PB&J sandwich on the side!
And then it was CHURCH time!! The sermon was GREAT (about making God your best friend <3 ), and thankfully the pastor is used to me eating during the sermon
That was my pre-run fuel! My run today was SO AMAZING!!! You know those runs that you just want to go on forever? (But you know they can’t because your physio will hunt you down and use her awesome arm muscles to put you in a unbreakable headlock). It was one of those runs
This was the first run I’ve had since my injury that I’ve felt like myself again when running! It was the best feeling! I just spent the hour chatting with God and smiling like a loon the whole time!
In the afternoon, I also did my last New Rules Of Lifting For Women Stage 1 workout!
My thoughts on that and on some other stuff coming at ya tomorrow!
It has pretty much the BEST nutritional profile I have ever seen!! 20g protein, all of your B12 and SO much iron!! Unfortunately, I tried it and gagged. It tasted like compost. No kidding on the greens!
So some GOOD eats for you from the last few days!!
Yesterday’s breakfast was pretty much the best in the WORLD… Oats In A Jar, with White Chocolate Wonderful!!
I made sure to leave at LEAST 10000 servings in the jar
I get worse every time. I think next time I’ll just skip the empty bit altogether and just stuff my oats right in there with the PB.
Sweet tater stuffed with beets, Sabra hummus and marinated tofu cubes (AMAZING combo btw, which I’ve been having non-stop in sandwiches recently!!) with more beets and mushrooms on the side.
Apple chunks dipped in my New Favourite Nut Butter!! Justin’s Chocolate Hazelnut is the best EVER!! And made with real chocolate!! Sadly it’s $12 a jar…worth every penny though
Warm WW pita strips double/triple/quadruple dipped in hummus and guacamole
Banana Protein Oats! (1/2 cup oats, banana protein powder, banana, soy milk and lots of PB&Co Cinnamon Raisin Swirl nut butter )
And my late night snack every night whilst blogging:
PB Puffins straight from the box. Cos I’m classy like that
And Fun Fact of the Day: I have been home a week now pretty much, and I still haven’t
started finished unpacking yet. Instead, I sit in my suitcase and hug my peanut butter.
Don’t think I’m kidding (well, except for the last bit! ). Will someone please come and unpack for me?! I’ll pay you in hugs and PB spoons!
What was the highlight of your Sunday? Pancakes, Church, Run!!
Do you use protein powders? If so, what brand? I don’t THAT often (only usually after lifting), and usually use Spiru-tein, cos I love all the flavours!!
Fave cereal? Currently, PEANUT BUTTER PUFFINS!! They are addictive!!
Hope you all have an AWESOME week!! <3
