Can we all just take a second and admire the weather? Not only today, but this winter! Last year at this time we were all living through sub zero temperatures and covering our faces to walk outside. This past weekend was 45-50 degrees and beautiful! Less than a month until Spring and I think we can actually skip winter. If snow is your thing, this must suck, but I’m definitely not one to question God’s decision to bless us Ithacans with the warmth.
Without too much fanfare of an introduction, let’s get to listing! Thanks to Meg for the link up!
I published a post everyday this week! Why am I so ambitious?! I kid, it actually wasn’t stressful. Writing recipe posts for future dates is actually easy. I knew bloggers sometimes write posts weeks or months in advance, but I am not one of those people. I like to write about what is relevant to me and most of my posts are about my daily life. Recipe posts though, I see why you write them early. I usually finish eating the recipe before I post it. Describing the flavor of something or remembering measurements is easier when the product is fresh in my mind.
If you haven’t already, check out my recipe for Triple Layer Peanut Butter Fudge Cups and allow your taste buds to explode with flavor!
I also posted three running related reads:
After being really wrecked last week I was waiting to see how Monday would go. Sometimes I function well on little sleep, other times I just want my bed and think about it all day. Status: relationship.
My other runs went pretty well. My boss put my status into good words. He said ” you’re incredibly fit, now you just have to stay healthy till May.” Amen.
My sister actually texted me that her groin is so painful she cannot run. She has a race in a month, so I gave her my sage wisdom from when I took all of July off and still raced August 2nd. I told her to elliptical until it felt better and her fitness would be there. I’ll be keeping her in my prayers.
Other life stuff
My coworker Casey gave me my Secret Santa gift which totally made my week. It is a boyfriend pillow WITH ABS! My cat loves it obviously. She did order it before Christmas you guy So! I don’t know why it took so long, but I’m glad it’s finally here. I have yet to name him but he’s a great reading companion.
After getting sick the other night after eating too much sugar, I am going to cut out added sugar for a couple weeks. I don’t really crave it anymore and my body is rejecting it. Still eating fruits and stuff, just no extra stuff. I feel better already. I’ve made a lot of different breakfasts and lunches this week. When you don’t have as many bananas, you learn to find other options.
Cutest spoon ever right?!?!
I got my box of Balega socks and apparel which made me so Happy! These socks are so comfortable, I don’t like to wear anything else. I love being on Team Impi this year, the community is so fun and inspiring.
I have my nut butter making down to a twenty minute process. Roast nuts while in shower, add to food processor straight from the oven. Let er rip until oily. I’m loving the different tastes. Still not as good as PB though 🙂
I made Arman’s no bake paleo cookie and eventually topped it with frosting. Too much frosting..which kicked off my no added sugar plan.
On Sunday I had a day off…my first one since January 5th! I decided to drive up to Syracuse and eat with some of my team mates at Strong Hearts Cafe.
Becca had a Crossfit WOD right before, so I beat them there. I was super hungry and had some baby carrots that I bought from Wegmans so…when you’re hungry…you know I snacked.
I miss these ladies so much! It was a wonderful lunch.
I cannot argue with the 60 degrees either 🙂
