Last night I got super motivated and made pumpkin muffins. I have been dreaming about them for weeks now & finally had my chance. It kind of seems that I have been on a cooking craze lately, but I am seeming to enjoy it.
What’s in my DELICIOUS Pumpkin Monster you ask? Well, here it is:
*1/2 cup pumpkin
*1 cup of Almond Milk (original flavor)
*1/2 scoop of protein powder
*2 huge handfuls of spinach
*1/4 tsp pumpkin spice
*3 ice cubes
So throw it all in the blender and you have yourself a delicious nutritious pumpkin pie shake!
So I wonder if any of you have the problem I have with the treadmill? It’s a love/hate relationship really. I am glad to have it for those days when it’s blustering cold or dark out & I still want to get some miles in, but once I am there I am so wishing I could be running freely outside – just my feet against the pavement.
I just feel like I run slower, more awkward & the time seems soooooooooooooooo much longer. Arrggh!
The Will Run For Wine Group did not meet up last night so I made my way to the gym to pile on the miles myself. I was actually excited until I started running and saw that I was pacing way slower than normal, I needed to take a lot of walking breaks and I just couldn’t get into the rythym.
I managed to bust out 4 miles in 48 minutes. This was due to a lot of walking breaks. And my speed ranged from 4.5 – 6.2, I was all over the place.
If anyone has tips for making the treamill more exciting & easier PLEASE let me know!
I am trying to incorporate new fruits & veggies into my daily routine, so you may see many more popping up over here. I think part of the marathon journey for me is to learn the balance of running & being healthy. So I am trying to make a concious effort to do both well.
