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 donâ€™t have to spend 5 hours a week running right now â€“ itâ€™s exciting to work on something else and feel the results.
Thatâ€™s not wine, thatâ€™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
Iâ€™ve almost totally stopped drinking regular cowâ€™s milk (a result of the Vegan for a Day Challenge), and Iâ€™ve found I donâ€™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). Iâ€™m still drinking regular organic half and half because thatâ€™s one thing Iâ€™m NOT willing to give up. Every vegetarian has their boundaries, I suppose. 🙂
Today, weâ€™re going with our friend Harry to visit his grandma, who just had a triple bypass. Heâ€™s been sitting by her bedside everyday, and I think they both need some company. 🙂
A workout is also forthcoming! Have a great day.
