I was in the mood to go to spinning this morning and I’m so glad I did because my favorite instructor was teaching! She’s very hard-core athletic and doesn’t cut the class any slack. Her favorite phrase is “Add the resistance, pedal faster, go for 10 more seconds….. because you can!” I find this so motivating, and she’s totally right. If we’re able, we should challenge ourselves in all areas of life – because we can.
So I challenge you all to make great choices today because your health (for the most part) is in your ability to make good decisions.
Before I left, I had an oat scone-cookie. They’re a little too chewy (in the cakey way) for my texture liking but the flavor is great. I bet a little real butter would have crisped ’em right up 😉
For breakfast I made Kath Classic – banana, flax, vanilla, milk/water plus walnuts, brown sugar and almond butter!
We got Costco whole walnuts and are going to manually chop them in batches as needed and keep them in a canister (I like tiny pieces for more surface area). We have been buying Trader Joe’s Chopped Baking Pieces, but the Costco are even cheaper and a little manual labor once a month won’t be hard. But as a result of the banging (in contrast to the pre-chopped), there is now more variety in size – a few large pieces, lots of middle-sized and even some walnut meal, which I loved!
That brown goo? That’s the melted brown sugar. A tiny teapoon goes a LOOONG way when you put it on top instead of stir it in.
See you guys for a pre-lab lunch!
