Lately I have been seeing some great memories popping up on my Facebook feed from our trips to Italy. I do love that place and can’t wait to go back. One thing I did each time we returned was try to re-create different pasta dishes that we enjoyed.
My husband and I just returned from an amazing 5 star Dream Trip that I earned through my Shaklee Business. It was truly a remarkable trip and I would love to highlight just a few of my favorite memories.
For those of you who have been following my running journey via Heart Rate Training, you are probably familiar with the EAT workout. I am currently in my second round of Heart Rate Training and I am definitely still learning. Since I have been running full marathons both Spring and Fall for the last several years, I decided it was time I take a much needed break till fall. So later this Spring I hope to run a half marathon for fun using Heart Rate Training.
Apricots and Almond Butter. Why didn’t I ever think of this before? Most often I use dates when I whip up these tasty energizing protein bites, but as I was going through my super food cupboard, I found a surplus of these delicious apricots. Both dates and apricots are natural sweeteners and they both pair well with almond butter so I decided to play around with my favorite protein bite recipe.
Here I am at my desk, sipping on my morning Bullet Proof Coffee from my new mug that I earned after the Securian Winter Run. As I look at this new favorite mug, I realize I have not blogged about a race recently. Heck, I have been a bit more quiet than usual lately, but my house is upside-down in the middle of a re-model, my mom has been under the weather for a couple weeks, and I am super busy with my work.
Living here in Minnesota sometimes makes running outside a bit difficult and often times dangerous. With wind chills way below zero, 40 below to be exact, hill sprints outside today seemed almost impossible.
Like most runners or exercise enthusiasts, it’s a tradition to start your Turkey day with some kind of activity. Maybe a local race or in my case, Turkey Day Butts and Guts. Just like every other year, my friend Sarah, kicks our butt, literally! Everyone who attends brings a donation for food shelf and hopefully lots of energy to burn! It’s a great way to start the day!
