Okay, I’m aware that TGIS (thank god it’s saturday) is not a thing. But maybe I’ll make it a thing? Here’s my rundown of random from the week. Enjoy, even if it’s a day late. In my defence I did a bunch of work yesterday, went for a swim (2750m! Go me/it helps when you have company!), caught up with Angela, beat Alex at UNO, and made bison steaks for dinner (had help for the veggies and rice–:)!). All in a day’s work.
This morning I am all fuelled up with an oat pancake (made with oats, egg whites, and cinnamon) that I topped with some maple syrup diluted with soy milk and an apple. Yummy! And now it’s time to get on that productive train so next week isn’t a killer. Be warned: I may have been all over the diary posts this week but next week I might be focusing on finishing all my stuff for school. Balance! :)
I keep thinking I’m busy…but then things get even busier! This weekend is looking like it’s going to be a lot of fun but work wise, next week is no lighter than this past one. Goal: keep smiling :) take things one at a time and have fun along the way!
5 cheesy pictures (tradition says these need to happen)
4 posts you should check out
- Kate’s post about the eating disorders/body focus in the world of elite sports. Kate does such a good job of discussing the whole thing, I’m just going to leave it to her ;) and say that it’s such an important thing for us to talk about!
- “8 ways to really turn a man off” from a new blog I think I found off of a Facebook share. Still, funny. I am definitely guilty of some (as I’m sure we all are) but I think I’m getting better ;)! Check it out for a giggle.
- Joe Friel’s post about recovery with his final words of wisdom: “Regardless of one’s level of experience or fitness, the harder the hard workouts, the easier one’s recovery days should be.” Amen to that!
- Peanut Butter Runner’s past post about going after what you want. Right up my alley this week and it’s just the fact that I stumbled on it that makes it a bit more meaningful!
3 books I’ve been digging my nose in
- Paleoista – I mentioned Nell Stephenson earlier this week. I like her. I don’t think Paleo is the answer, but I think it’s got some good ideas.
- Healthy Tipping Point – I’m just getting into this now, but I am so excited! I love blogger books!
- Food Politics – Marion Nestle’s take on how the food industry affects nutritional advice is hitting close to home now that I’m in this foods program–so I’m re-reading it!
2 Facebook statuses I re-shared (Go Kaleo with the double:)
1 smoothie I kind of mastered
- my mix Thursday night (post-bike ride): applesauce, spinach, soy milk, cinnamon, a dash of maple syrup, and cashew butter (enjoyed with a cashew butter spoonful and a handful of crunchy cereal on top)
And a bonus…
What’s new with you this week?
