Before we get to the usual Friday things – two more things! First, don’t forget to enter the giveaway for the 6qt programmable slow cooker!
Second, check out my latest Youtube video (also on Facebook here.)
okay now onto the Friday “use”
Overall better this week, cleared to do a few more things. Still working on getting rid of hamstring nerve pain and low SI Joint issues, but overall starting to regain some sort of normalcy. Not being able to rely on taking a medication to do the things I want to do has been a real bummer and challenge, but also a good thing. It goes both ways. Like I can’t go with Mr. Hungry to the Suns game tonight because sitting on the hard chairs for 3 hours is probably going to make everything worse. So at times, it feels very isolating when we feel like we can’t even go out to dinner or meet up with friends outside the comfort of my soft chair at home. But I now know that not taking high dose anti-inflammatories is the right choice for my fertility and hope for a future family. I try to focus on that, and my expanding workouts which help me to stay positive. I can not wait till I can run again, seriously can not wait.

Wednesday (1/10) – Trimotus
Yesterday I did a workout I actually enjoyed! It’s super easy to scale as hard or as easier as you need. I’m just getting back into the swing of things so I used light weights for the step ups and lunge bicep curls, heavier weights for the chest press. Do what feels right for you!
Don’t forget this is your chance to get 25% off on WTE? Meal Plans! I use this meal plans as a template for what we eat during the week plus the new recipes I want to make. I know I’m biased but it’s so nice to have full days of eats to schedule in and I get to repeat HH recipes I love. If you want to join me, make sure you sign up by 5 pm tonight to have next week loaded in your account by MIDNIGHT!
Yet another Thursday of eats, I honestly didn’t take any pictures so I’ll be using the pretty blog once since I mostly ate blog food from the WTE meal plans!
I woke up around 6 am and started the day sitting on a heating pad (requirement pre-stretching), drinking half caff coffee with collagen, and working on sharing about the Slow Cooker giveaway! At some point, I made Mr. Hungry his favorite smoothie (spinach, almond milk, berries, coconut sugar, a handful of almonds).
Around 8 am I got ready for the day, followed by 15 minutes of stretching. I heated up turkey bacon ranch bowl (without the ranch) for breakfast while I reviewed food sensitivity test results for a client meeting at 9 am. After meeting with my client I started working on a new recipe but got SUPER hungry so I had a pumpkin seed bar.
After I was done with the photo shoot, I ate a serving of my new recipe. Not really sure what to call it yet but it was good!
Work, work, work the rest of the afternoon until it was time to walk Nala. I had a spoonful of peanut butter as I headed out the door for an hour walk!
Then I got a great workout in, showered, and got ready for the department meeting at the community college I work at. I had a greek yogurt and banana before I left. When I got home from the meeting I ate a couple pieces of cheese and deli meat while I finished up this post!
