First Run of the Season

Looks like the weather is in my favour! Tuesday afternoon when I got off work, I debated whether I should go to the gym, or go out for a run. I absolutely hate running in the cold – my ears get cold (and sore) and my lungs burn! The last few days have been absolutely gorgeous. I almost think I was over dressed as I had my Smart Wool long sleeve shirt on over top my tank. Considering it was my first run outside (running on a treadmill does not match up to outside even with an incline), I thought I did pretty good. It`s not my legs that kill me, it`s my lungs. Good thing those cycle fit classes I`ve been going to have kept me in shape.

A couple things I`ve been loving lately are homemade granola with Greek or goat`s yogurt and fresh juices. I love how I feel after having a fresh juice. One of my favourites is beets, carrots, apple, lemon and kale.

Well that`s all for today! I`m off to a cycle fit class before I head to work. I`m looking forward to my days off to do some recipe testing (which means recipes posted for you)! Have a good one!

What a Good Friday

Happy Good Friday. I’m off today which is nice, although, I was hoping to get called in for the extra pay. It’s absolutely beautiful outside today – Spring is finally here! I’m hoping to go for a walk and enjoy the gorgeous weather.

This weekend I’m house sitting for some family. They have a beautiful house close to downtown and she has everything I could possibly want/need in her kitchen. This morning I woke up and made myself a juice. I have a juicer at home, but it was nice to not have to bring it over here.

Last night I had been looking up some breakfast recipes. I came across a website that had a ton of gluten-free pancake recipes that looked delicious. I decided to make Banana Rice Flour Pancakes. They turned out great. I spread a little bit of coconut oil, with a drizzle of agave and then sprinkled them shredded coconut on top. I got the recipe from this site.

There is also an espresso machine here. I asked Josh if we could get one when we get home. I told him it would save us money as we get Starbucks every now and then (and you know how expensive that gets). Plus, I don’t drink a lot of dairy and I don’t like drinking soy. So, this morning I made myself and almond milk latte, and I’m enjoying it as I write this post!

That’s all I have for today as I have to go get ready. I’m going to take our niece, Kori, for a walk. Looking forward to some exercise and quality vitamin D. Hope you have a fantastic day and Good Friday!
