BROOKE IS BACK!!!
A few readers asked about how Brooke gets to California for her visitations with her dad—> My mom takes her every other month and the months she doesn’t go there he comes here to see Brooke. I went a few times to take Brooke to California and I LOVED seeing my California friends while I was there (I miss them dearly) BUT… going back is still hard for me. I am an out of sight, out of mind kind of a person so going there is tough, and the memories from last summer in California… nope, not ready for that yet. Give me a few more months and I am sure I will be ready to do the drop-off/pick-up thing:) Added bonus is that my mom’s sister lives there so she gets to spend the weekend with her!
Whenever I get injured I remember how much I love different types of fitness classes/workouts etc. Turns out there is more to life than running and there are other ways to work up a sweat.
Megan (laying down because the class was so hardcore that we just wanted to collapse at the end) and I went to Barefoot BootCamp which combines hot yoga and kettlebells. Oh my goodness, I have never sweat so much in my life. This workout was intense and now I just need to find a studio near me that offers this class because I loved it.
Megan gave me one of these to try after class. Amazing.
Drove the 3.5 hours home and of course I stopped for a Subway because I don’t remember a road trip where I didn’t stop at Subway to eat.
Nothing wrong with eating your salad with the steamed broccoli, quinoa, turkey bacon, sweet potato and cottage cheese right out of the Costco salad container.
My friend’s Zucchini bread/waffle/pancake recipe!! It is in the above picture and we had it with dinner last night.
2.5 cups of oats you blend in the blender until smooth like flour
1 cup plain greek yogurt
1/3 cup of agave (you could use 1/2 c. honey)
1.5 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
2 TBS ground flax seed
1 TBS vanilla
2 ripe bnanas
1 cup shredded zucchini and 1 TBS cinnamon and 1 TBS pumpkin pie spice
Mix it all up and bake at 350 for about 15 minutes or use the batter and cook them up like pancakes using coconut oil in the pan!
She wraps these up individually and freezes them so that she can eat them for an on the go breakfast.
Brooke makes sure to always feed her baby doll at least 40% of her meal.
I need your help. I am seriously considering getting a Dessert Bullet… you just stick in a frozen banana and any other frozen fruit in and it sounds amazing but I need to hear reviews from anyone that has one!! THANK YOU!
