Day 2 of the Intro to Iron Pumping Challenge left my legs and butt feeling so sore! I find it highly ironic that six days ago, I ran 26.2 miles, but I struggled to do leg presses. I am actually thrilled that I don’t have to spend 5 hours a week running right now – it’s exciting to work on something else and feel the results.
That’s not wine, that’s POM Wonderful!
My oatmeal contained:
- 1/2 cup oats
- 1/2 cup rice milk
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 sliced banana
- Toppings: flax, almonds, brown sugar, and unsweetened coconut
I’ve almost totally stopped drinking regular cow’s milk (a result of the Vegan for a Day Challenge), and I’ve found I don’t miss it at all. Rice milk is a really great substitute, and I get my calcium form other sources (beans, yogurt, cheese, oranges, tofu, etc). I’m still drinking regular organic half and half because that’s one thing I’m NOT willing to give up. Every vegetarian has their boundaries, I suppose. 🙂
Today, we’re going with our friend Harry to visit his grandma, who just had a triple bypass. He’s been sitting by her bedside everyday, and I think they both need some company. 🙂
A workout is also forthcoming! Have a great day.
