How was everyones Memorial Weekend?
Mine was absolutely amazing…I’m so blessed to have had the opportunity to go home and spend some time with my parents, and go to lunch with one of my long time friends Shelbi. While I was home I watched tons of movies….Avatar, Ironman 2, Love Happens, and Invictus, as well as going shopping with mom and dad, working out (circuits, yogadownload power yoga, 4 full snakes at my old HS bleachers,pilates abs video, and some jump training and sprints at a park).
One thing I really noticed this weekend was how hard it was to train the way I want to b/c I didn’t have a gym. I feel like I’ve been so spoiled b/c I have always had a gym and this weekend was my first time to not have one….it was crazy but it was also tons of fun trying to find different things I could use to replace my jump boxes (instead I used a bench at the park, etc.).
Now, its time to get back to the grind of things, training, teaching spin, coaching, and playing league games while taking care of other things before summer school starts up!
here are some eats from this weekend and the week before.
Now for stuff from this weekend……
Nectarine or strawberries
1.5 cups black beans (rinsed)
1/4 c whole wheat flour
2 squirts BBQ Sauce
2 glugs of Worschestsire sauce (or however you spell it lol)
1 garlic clove
1/2 sauteed onion
sprinkle of cayenne and cumin
salt and pepper
combine all in food processor, then mold into balls and cook in pan till brown on both sides
Went to taco diner last night with Katie (after a long day of playing sand as soon as I got back in Denton) and I ordered a mojito…so pretty…but in my opinion they put way too much mint in the drink so I only drank maybe 1/4 of it
and for breakfast this morning all I had were sandwich thins, AB and some honey for a Breakfast sandwich….
So….I’ve bee thinking…since I am training everyday out in the sun I really need to make sure that I’m take good care of my skin. I am a strong believer that what I eat will cure allergies, skin problems, even cancer….
I don’t feel like my skin is as bright anymore as it was when I was juicing all the time so the Skin Doctor (aka me) has prescribed a carrot, beet, kale, and apple juice for me for breakfast every morning this week, along with a spinach, kiwi, orange, pineapple, and strawberry smoothie at some other point in the day.
The reason? Well beets and carrots are great for brightening skin…and the kiwi orange etc. has Vitamin C which is a very powerful antioxidant extremely important for me to eat while I am out in the sun all day everyday (don’t worry…I am slathering on TONS of sunscreen every 30 min-hr as well as using Philosophy’s Vitamin C powder in my daily lotion).
I get so paranoid sometimes that I am going to look 80 when I’m 40 yrs old b/c I’m out the sun all the time, along with more serious issues such as skin cancer. This is why I am trying to cover all angels…tons of sunscreen, eating powerful foods, and being in the shade anytime I get a break.
Do you have any suggestions that I may be missing? Please share!
Do you ever get worried about things like this? How do you deal with it?
Have a great week! I will be sharing with y’all a surprise in the near future!!!!!
