As I was writing the title of my post I almost fell out of my chair, how can it possibly be Jan 22 already? It felt like Christmas and New Years were just last week! Time flies when you’re having fun eh?
I haven’t mentioned it yet, but I have been battling some really bad IT band issues this past week or so. It was getting so bad that it was actually hurting just walking down the street. I am putting it down to overuse and not a lot of muscle/band TLC. I think I have it on the mend now but I have been really missing the running. I have been on the spin bikes quite a bit the last few days and I am just so glad for my iPad and Netflix. I am running out of training ideas though. I am getting board of core/upper body workouts 😦 I guess if I look on the bright side, I am still able to do those! But I am still a little frustrated…
But lets move on to more important things, like FOOD! HAPPY
WIAW Sunday! Thanks for hosting Jenn!!
Well now, I love posting my weekend eats once in a while. I always love my food a little more when I put a little more effort into it.
John made pancakes… I ate pancakes! These ones are so good. They are made with mashed banana and whole wheat flour among some other tasty ingredients. While they were cooking I plopped in some blueberries. I topped mine with peanut butter, a little maple syrup, coconut, and chia seeds. On this side I seared apples slices dusted with cinnamon. I wish all mornings could start like this.
These actually held me over until Lunch!
I guess the filling was shy and didn’t want to be seen! In the wrap was tuna, cheese, mustard, tomato, pickle, and spinach. I decided to grill the wrap and get the cheese all melty inside. I also had some leftover salad on the side. This made for a really filling lunch but I was still ready for a mid afternoon Snack
A nice hot cup of tea and on of these home made granola bars (x2). Seriously like I’ve said before, these things are addictive. I think I will need to make a new batch in the near future.
Before I knew it the day was almost done and it was time to sit down to Dinner
For tonights meal I made black bean burgers topped with brie cheese and served in a whole wheat bun. These things are really pretty tasty and I had to go back for another patty. We also had sweet potato and salad. And I can’t finish a day without some form of Dessert
Home made chocolate that John made on Saturday. He is really turning out to be quite the chef!
1) Have you ever had an IT band injury? What did you find helped it to heal faster?
2) What was the best thing you ate this last week?
