Happy Friday! It’s suppose to be in the 60s and 70s here and I’m planning on some hiking and vineyarding…and lots and lots and lots of relaxing.
I feel like I haven’t done a Feel Good Friday in a while so let’s talk about some feel good things. Mmmmk?
I’m also feeling good about going to Newwww Yoorrrk on Thursday to visit Columbia and I’m super excited. One to visit and two…to make a dang decision!
I’ve also developed a love for strength training that I didn’t think was possible for a running junkie like me and I feel really good about that. These days I’m loving Barre and I’ve also gotten back into the strength training classes at ACAC that are sort of a mix between BodyPump and Insanity. More intense than pump but not as much cardio as insanity but it’s a circuit style workout. And my booty is still so sore from Wednesday morning. So strength + walking is my thing right now, and that feels really good. I’m in a season of slowing down and resting more because things get crazy in May and I’m soaking it all up. Maybe a marathon next spring, who knows?
And if you haven’t read this post by the fabulous and inspiring Amanda over at Running with Spoons…you should, her outlook and story is super refreshing. And then scroll through her recipes and drool over these flourless double chocolate chip muffins. Rest assured these will be made this weekend.
And I’ll leave you with two recipes that I’ve gotten lots of questions about!
Combine all the dry ingredients in a bowl. Then gently stir in the wet ingredients. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 to 40 minutes or until the center is done. Top with coconut oil, nut butter, fruit, nuts, shredded coconut or anything else you like!
2 T egg whites
I love then smeared with nutbutter and topped with banana or just dipped in butter or coconut oil with dinner!
