Thanks guys for all your words of wisdom about Triathlons. I’m kind of nervous, and I did look on Craigslist but sadly bikes being sold there are close to 1000 dollars (in my area at least) and I can’t promise myself right now that that money would be worth it. So I’m still looking around.
Good thing very few of you live anywhere close to me because I’m in ultra creep mode for a bike. Oh yes also thank you for your advice on my blog. I think I was too vague in explaining what I meant but I was just having self reflection of my blog and I’m not planning on changing anything. So you can never get rid of me.
PS: Speaking of last night, I made chocolate soft serve for my belly. So delicious. I have been eating them alongside whatever else I eat…not in place of because I’d still be hungry after for realz
You need some cut up frozen bananas…you can choose how many you want.
1/8 Cocoa powder
Sweetener to your liking
½ tsp of Xanthem Gum
Put into your blender
And then today I also had a fruity blast smoothie! This time I didn’t have any bananas left so I threw in:
about 1 cup of blueberries and raspberries
½ cup Greek yogurt
1 tsp Xanthem Gum
Seriously, can you tell I’m obsessed yet?
And can you tell I can’t get enough of Julies cooking too because she made blueberry pancakes.
And they were the bomb.com. We are in the process of opening up our own breakfast restaurant where she makes the food and I think of creative ideas. Want to come to there?
For lunch we (Julie and I) went to Dexter’s and I got a mushroom quiche with a side spicy bulgur and chickpea salad. Both were equally as good and I will certainly be getting them again…tomorrow.
This week they are selling grab bags at the union on campus. You could win a plethora of great things (that for some reason they couldn’t sell at our student store…gee I wonder why..)so naturally Julie and I had to make a big ordeal of buying some and being really cool. They are only $2!
PS: Some other neat things were a battery operated pencil eraser, many key chains, a bendable bracelet, shotglass and book titled “The best things in life begin with G”.
But on a different note, since I have been getting a lot of questions about my heel injury…
I promised you guys I would never do this but so many people have asked how I recovered from my heel injury so quickly. Well for starters, I didn’t run. AT ALL. NONE. It was very hard but I would rather the outcome of being healed then being more injured.
Second, not only did I ice, I heated every single day. There was seriously not one day that I didn’t do both.
Third, I had (and still have for the next two weeks) my heels wrapped in KT Tape. If you haven’t heard of it, it’s awesome and good for a lot of different injuries. So if you ever get injured (obviously go to the doctor) but look into KT tape. It’s like God’s gift to my life (that and pancakes).
So there you have it. Cross training and KT Tape was my life the last two weeks.
PS: I finally got into the pool and swam 3000 yards. I am not dead, just a little waterlogged so you might find me a little more strange than normal the next few days. I bet you didn’t know that was possible…
Question for you:
1. Have you ever been injured? What happened?
2. Are you a smoothie/soft serve pro? Give me some tips.
