Now that Iâ€™m looking at my food pictures, Iâ€™m realizing that I had quite the purple lunch. I started off with a purple smoothie around 10 AM.
(Say hi to the Husband! Weâ€™re both working from home today!)
In the blender:
- 1 cup almond milk
- 1 banana
- 1/2 cup frozen mixed berries
- Chia seeds
And Part II of lunch was this very purple stir-fry:
In the wok:
- Chopped kale
- Chopped purple (red?) cabbage
- Olive Oil
- Topped with: Kidney beans and pistachios
I liked this combo a lot â€“ very sweet and salty. The texture was great, too, thanks to the chewy kale and crunchy nuts (can you tell I like contrast in my dishes?).
Iâ€™m working on a post about the emotional side of being injured. Luckily, my current injury isnâ€™t too serious, but itâ€™s still rough to feel like youâ€™re â€˜out of commissionâ€™ when youâ€™re used to regular exercise or have races scheduled. Having non-mileage goals definitely helps you stay positive and focused on long-term health.
My current non-mileage goal is to be able to hold Bird of Paradise for 10 seconds with a straight leg. Iâ€™m so close! :) I will surely start screaminâ€™ and clappinâ€™ in the middle of yoga class when I actually do it.
Stay tuned for the complete Emotional Side of Injury post, but in the meantimeâ€¦ what non-mileage goals are YOU currently working towards?
