Last week was spring break and we were visiting my family in Kansas City. The food was great, the company was great, and the shopping was great – always love a trip to Athleta (which is unfortunately opening up a store only 30 minutes from me). But I ended up with a cold so I missed several workouts. I did make it to a hot yoga class with my niece which was fun. And my sister is experimenting with a Paleo diet so I tried some new recipes of hers.
Now we are back to reality – school, work, eating right, and tri training.
The pool at the gym is closed this week so I’ll just skip those workouts.
I am a huge fan of Peanut Butter Runner, so I have also decided to add in some strength workouts per her advice. Her blog is fantastic – has lots of great tips about running, strength training and yoga, as well as nutrition and tons of workouts. She is having a green smoothie challenge for the month of April – a green smoothie every day – and I have joined in the fun. She has lots of green smoothie recipes on her blog if any of you want to join in.
One of our favorite green smoothies is the Shrek Smoothie:
2 containers vanilla Greek yogurt
3 kale leaves
sugar free coffee creamer or milk or almond milk
Blend and enjoy!
The house is ready for Easter – pictures to come soon.
