1/6 Menu and Workout Plans: A Yoga Challenge
Menu planning this week will be a little different as I am focusing on using up things we have at home, it is amazing what gets lost in the back of the pantry and fridge! Linking up with Jill and Laura. We are on the final week of a gluten free trial for O before adding it back in get a true picture. I know this isn't the greatest if it is an issue but is the way I can tell gluten is my problem. I didn't see a huge improvement at first but as soon as I add it back into my diet, yikes! Since we are only seeing minimal (if any) change in her I think this will give us more answers.
Sunday: 4 bean quinoa chili & corn muffins
Tuesday: Run Night- Sandwich and fruit
Wednesday: Veggie Pizza
Thursday: Black Bean Butternut Squash
Friday: Blueberry Pancakes & roasted potatoes
Saturday: Dinner Out
This week I had to give in to a cute toddler requesting to bake muffins and let her dictate the recipe (a little)
Blueberry Banana Buckwheat Muffins
1 cup buckwheat flour
1/2 cup oats (ground to flour)
1/2 cup coconut flour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp nutmeg
2 ripe bananas
1/2 cup date paste (1 cup dates & 1/4 cup water boiled until paste consistency)
1 cup non dairy milk
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups blueberries
Mix dry ingredients and set aside. In food processor mix bananas, date paste, vanilla & egg. Combine wet (+ milk) into dry ingredients until mixed. Stir in blueberries. Pour into prepared muffin pan. Bake in 350F preheated oven 15-18 minutes. Makes 1 dozen
This past week in workouts wasn't as planned, I am finally able to run again after this nasty virus has hit us all. Now we are only stuck with a lingering cough but I am no longer that person hanging on white knuckled to the treadmill at slower than my long run pace and barely able to breathe. A few weeks until marathon training starts so I have time to get in full health.

Monday: Morning Weights & Afternoon Run
Tuesday: Morning Spin & Evening Run
Wednesday: Morning Run & Evening Yoga
Thursday: Morning Weights with trainer & Evening Run
Friday: Morning Spin

Next week I am starting a 30 Day Yoga Challenge at the gym where we are challenging ourselves to do yoga daily for 30 days either at a class or at home. My goal is 1-2 days a week in class and the rest at home. I have one yoga DVD but get bored, Any good websites (free preferred) or DVDs? Anyone want to join me on this challenge? I figure it won't be a bad idea to add in some relaxing exercise, right?
Think I can do this in 30 days!
