Since it is Fitness Friday let's first look at my workout goals: Pilates 2x this week, 3 morning workouts resulting in 3 doubles, but I have failed to call the gym at work. The leg ache is back but lower this time, so of course I am over analyzing and freaking out! I am trying very hard to rest and only do what does not cause me pain. The plan as of now is to take June as a rest month with minimal running and fully heal. Besides continuing with my regular fitness goals I only have one to add...
- Run a good half tomorrow: feel good, but push myself. Would love to beat last year's time of 1:37:54 and defend my AG win
- Make more time for family, spend time each day doing something O wants to do.
- Prepare at least 1 new meal this week
- Change the breakfast routine from cereal to something with more protein and less carb loaded to combat the morning starvation.
Sweet Potato Sun Butter Protein Bars

3 cups oats
1/4 cup vanilla protein powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1 cup raisins/dates
Combine sweet potato, Sun Butter and vanilla. In separate bowl mix remaining ingredients then add wet to dry. Pour into a greased 9x13 pan and press down. Bake 45-50 min at 325F.
