This morning workout was mucho better than yesterday. My legs were unbelievably sore from Core fusion I think. (Which is good! Breaking in some new muscles, awesome!) But finally today all was a-ok. Although I gotta say Im so looking forward to my rest day tomorrow. Woohoo! Ive been rockin’ the cardio pretty hard this week!
Unfortunately this is going to be a bit of a short post. My in-laws are coming tomorrow which means some major cleaning has got to be done! And I've totally procrastinated as usual.
I did however, had a huge craving for something banana-y today and so I whipped up some Coffee Banana Balls! (Anything to keep from cleaning!)
Coffee Banana Balls
30 grams cashews
80 grams dates
1 tsp cinnamon
1 Tbsp. Coffee beans
1/3 c. Just Banana chips*
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 Tbsp. Maple syrup
1/2 Tbsp water (if needed for consistency)
pinch of sea salt
I combined all my dry ingredients and blended those up first. Then Added in the dates, maple syrup, vanilla and water if needed. And voila! I also crushed some dehydrated banana chips and rolled a few in them.
*These are the banana chips that I used. Just dehydrated bananas. You could make your own too. Im sure that would work just fine.
Overall these had a really awesome strong coffee flavor with just a hint of banana. Soo tasty! I do love my coffee! And you can never go wrong with bananas that's for sure.
My day also consisted of the usual salads but I did finally try out Averie’s Tahini Cesar dressing and it is awesome!!! Love it. It just added such a wonderful flavor to my veggies.
I ended the day with a big pile of veggies and some egg whites.
This has been my go to meal for awhile. Might be a bit boring but I find it tasty and super fast. I love it with a big pile of ketchup on the side.
So have you ever found a product that has just totally helped you out big time? I just did. Fit Flops! Granted not the most stylish things in the entire world but they are the coziest shoes ever. I used to get these major charlie horses for awhile. I could not for the life of my figure out what was causing them. I kept asking people and got answers ranging from dehydration to Potassium deficiencies. But they were really frequent and hurt! But I started wearing these a few times a week and my feet and leg muscles do feel way better. I don't know if its because they offer more arch support, but wow, what a difference.
Love the Fit Flops! Do you have any products that just totally helped you out in a big way? Would be great to learn about some new items that out there on the market that actually work pretty well.
Anyways I must be off now for some cleaning and packing for the fam. I hope you all are having a wonderful week so far!! (Its almost Friday!!) Any big weekend plans coming up?
