Exciting News & Our Snow Day in Pics

Sting or Bee Stung!

I am so proud to have been chosen to be a Honey Stinger Hive Ambassador for 2017.  I’ve been waiting patiently to hear back and today was the day.  Their organic waffles and energy chews are an essential part of my fueling plan for all of my long runs.  There are even gluten free options.  I especially like the cinnamon, vanilla, and gingersnap waffles.  There are some new flavors I am excited to try out as well:  chocolate mint and vanilla/chocolate mix!   As for the chews, I have a LOT of favorites:  cherry blossom, fruit smoothie, pomegranate passion fruit, and pink lemonade.   The waffles satisfy my hunger on long runs and keep my stomach happy.  The chews always give me a nice burst of energy and taste great!

Woke Up to a World of White

No school today since we woke up to this beautiful mess!

Eli was the first to shovel today.  He had to get to his goats!

Not too thrilled about all of this cold white stuff.

We like it better up here!

Finn is a little more adventurous but Irish is standing his ground!

Brotherly love.  They don’t know what to do without each other!

 

Snow Day Food

Veggie frittata with broccoli, red pepper, and feta.

So good with chipotle salsa, creole parmesan potatoes, and avocado.

 

A blurry pic of my salad.  I had a whole chicken in the crockpot overnight in case we would lose power during the storm today.  For dinner we all did what we wanted with it.  My hubby and older son put it in Ramen, my youngest ate it plain with leftover breakfast potatoes, and I put it with a salad.  (Saving my carbs for the cookies below!)image2.png

 

 

And it’s not a snow day without homemade cookies!  Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies  .  (no flour, no butter)  They recipe calls for 1 cup of peanut butter.  I was able to scrape 3/4 cup peanut butter from 3 leftover jars (crunch and creamy), then used 1/4 of almond butter.  They turned out really yummy and they are not terribly bad for you either.  A nice treat on a cold and snowy day!

Workout

I got 9 miles of cycling in last night before the storm, along with upper body and core at the gym.  Today I did some shoveling but while the boys did the driveway, I tried this workout.

Then I did some light yoga and spent time with the old ab roller..

That’s also my stretching band in the corner.  Really helps you get a deep stretch (see below)!
image
Hold for about 15 seconds per leg, 3 times each.  Always makes me feel better!

Always a Nerf dart in every picture!  lol   When I use the ab roller, I roll out straight, then turn toward the left, back to center, and then turn toward the right…and repeat.  It’s good to activate as many core muscles as possible!

 

Do you have a favorite snow day cookie?

What is your go-to workout when you are stuck indoors?

    M going to have to try that workout! When I’m stuck inside, I’m on the treadmill. I should hit the weights too, but I don’t cross train like I should. I need to change that.

      Cross training is worth it to prevent injury! Try adding one session per week and go from there 🙂
