Little Steps

Blue Shoes 01

Hey guys! I’ve been a bit remiss in my blogging lately…as soon as we came back from our long trip away, we had 9 of my nieces and nephews here for over a week while their parents went on a holiday…so as you can imagine, we had a lovely, wild, crazy time here.

But last night I was finally able to get a little workout in. I ran 3 miles. But the great part is…I did it in about 27 minutes! YES! It’s a new record for me…I’m working to see if I can do 3 miles in 25 minutes, that’s my next goal! I seem to have more energy at night…

I guess the reason I was so happy about it, was just because I’m so out of shape since my trip. Though I really tried to get workouts in on the road, it was really hard to fit it in. One night, excited to find our hotel had a gym, I decided to work out for an hour. And I worked out hard with a full body routine. It wasn’t a crazy workout, it’s something I’d do at home, no problem. But it was too hard of a workout for a body out of shape and that night I got sick. Like flu-ish sick (that happened to me after my first half marathon, when I didn’t train properly).

Anyway, now that I’m home…I’m learning that when you’ve been out of your routine for a while, you have to work back into it slooooowly. Something I’m not good at.

But one thing I am good at…is eating this:

Vegan Banana Oatmeal Pancakes 01

I had my Vegan Banana Oatmeal Pancakes for breakfast this morning. Amaaazing. They just melt in your mouth. I did a new version of them today. I made them gluten free, replacing the wheat flour with more oatmeal (now my Dad can enjoy them!). I’ve had a reader say that they replaced the wheat flour with buckwheat flour and they turned out great, so there are two gluten-free versions for you!

Now I’m off to my workout…maybe a 15 minute core workout and a 3 mile run.

Keep your eyes open for a special giveaway that I’ll be doing very soon! (grin)

Do you have more energy for night workouts or morning workouts?

    I’m more of a morning workout girl, mainly because I can get it out of the way before the kids wake up. Otherwise, Hayden likes to do yoga poses with me. So cute.

    Sorry to hear you got sick. I sometimes have that happen when I push myself too hard.

    Very cute shoes and yummy looking pancakes. I like to make the ones in Brendan Brazier’s “The Thrive Diet” book. Now you’re giving me a craving for them :-)

    definitly morning workouts only :) if I miss it in the morning, sometimes I make it in the afternoon, but never in the evening…

    P.S. lately I switched running for cardio dance and I love it :))) besides I can do it from home and don’t have to go out in the cold.

    That sounds like a fantastic workout! I love working out in the morning because I think I make healthier choices all day long that way.

    Wishing you and your family a very Happy Thanksgiving!

    Good job girl, that would be a record for me too!

    Theoretically, I have more energy in the morning. Realistically, I rarely get around to exercising before late afternoon.

    I have no energy at night after working all day or studying all evening. I usually have tons of energy at 11 a.m., when I have to teach. Go figure.

    I get up to work out in the morning! Right now, I only have time for 10-20 minute workouts.

    Those pancakes look fabulous! Such a stunning picture
    And I am much more of a morning workout person, I like to get it done early :)
