We got hit with a few inches of snow on Monday night! It was the good kind, too – no freezing rain to make the roads miserable and close down the entire city. Just big, fluffy flakes that were perfect for making a little snowman.
I was extra pumped because the snow delayed my mom’s departure! Wahoo. We really like it when she comes to stay with us, and any reason to extend the trip is fine by me.
Because someone always asks –> Claire’s fleece booties. They are Henry’s hand-me-downs and we love them so much we bought a second pair. Worth every penny.
Mom chatted with me while I rode my trainer – yay for conversation! Normally, I read a book or look out the window at our street. This was a nice change of pace.
I did 30 minutes and then I called it quits… I have trouble getting over the 30 minute hump mentally. Anyone else? I can’t believe that I’ve done 2 hour stretches – that sounds soooo painful right now.
The night before, I did an Operation Beautiful event at nearby Wingate University. It’s National Eating Disorders Awareness Week, and I usually travel non-stop this week for speaking events, but with Claire being so young, I decided to mostly sit this round out. It was fun to talk to a school so close – it was only a 45 minute drive.
I did not present to an empty room, hah.
And here are some awesome eats from yesterday and today!
Have you tried the Caramel Almond and Sea Salt KIND bar? OMG. Seriously – OMG. It’s so good. I randomly grabbed it off the grocery store shelf and ate it standing it line… I ended up going back to the shelf and throwing twelve bars in my cart. It’s really tasty with some Earl Grey tea.
Quinoa, beans, roasted carrots, steamed kale and Tahini Sauce.
And hardboiled eggs are making a comeback in my life.
Have an awesome Wednesday!
You need TrainerRoad! I train almost exclusively indoors and during triathlon season, I’m usually on the trainer a good 5 or so hours a week and never get bored. They use your ANT+ data from a heart rate monitor and/or cadence sensor (or a powermeter, but I don’t seem to recall that you have one) to guide you through focused interval work. I turn on music and the program, and it’s like playing a video game for my workout.
