I finally have pictures to post! They’re random, but still photos.
It’s been a couple of weeks (I think). I’ll try to recap.
Last weekend the other half cooked a massive meat feast for him and a friend. Too good not to share.
Yesterday, at his request, I made blueberry lemon streusel bars, which are one of my favorite summertime desserts.
Recipe here. So good.
Looking to spice up your cooking? Give some calabrese pepper paste a try. He found this at our local italian grocery and has used it in just about everything.
I’m not creative so I wouldn’t know what to do with it, but if you are (and like heat), try it. We like the one on the right better.
I did roughly put together a half marathon training plan, which will officially start in the next week or 2. It’s 12 weeks long and since we have more time than that, we should be OK.
We went out for a slow 3ish miles on Saturday. This is the first time I’ve ran outside since moving and so now it’s a question of finding new running routes. This one was OK. I ran with my other half and we took it very slow. Picked up the pace a bit in the last mile and it felt good.
Looking forward to more outdoor runs in the near future.
The gym I teach at just wrapped up a Cycling Across America program to try and boost interest and attendance in our cycling program. It was really neat and it was great to see the members get excited about it.
Here’s me looking scary happy after our last cycle across america class.
This was a group photo (selfie) but i cropped the members out. And yes, I am always that happy at spin. Before, during, after. Psychotic smile 🙂
Also in spinning, one of my classes is being cancelled. I teach a Sunday morning and a Monday evening and the attendance on Monday has been struggling. With the quarterly changes they decided to do away with Monday night. I understand and know it has nothing to do with me. The members are not happy, so I guess we’ll see what happens.
I don’t envy the role of making group exercise schedules at a gym.
Not much to report here. We did have a cake tasting and in doing so realized we like the style of a “naked cake”. We’re not really doing this exactly, but I figured I’d share a photo of a photo anyway 🙂
My favorite topic…
Here are a couple of shots of minnie to wrap up the post.
Looking really excited.
Happy with her donut.
She never truly looks happy, eh? It’s that sad Sarah McLauchlan face.
So that’s more or less what’s been going on here. I’ve been sticking with OTF two times a week, which has been great. Body Beast has temporarily been put on hold while we focus on cardio/running. I’d like to get back to at least some of it soon as I enjoyed the weight training challenge.
Have a wonderful week!!!
