Last night I actually found a wonderful "V-Day present" in the give-take box on my floor!
Score! The only flavor left in the box was lemon zest which just happens to be my favorite!
This morning I didn't even consider doing speed work for running, I may try on Wednesday for a moderate run or just wait until Saturday, I am currently pain free but sprints is not a good test. In place I warmed up on the bike for 15 minutes, did weights and mixed in plyometric drills. They are a great replacement for speed work because they jack up your heart rate and actually increase power and agility in general, it was an insanely good workout! Before I left had the standard 1/2 english muffin with cheese and fruit spread!
So who else is enjoying a marvelous love breakfast for one?
3 tbsp pancake mix (I use Bob's Red Mil Buckwheat)
1.5 scoops vanilla protein powder
1/4 cup egg whites (or 1 egg)
1 stevia packet
3 tbsp skim milk (or milk of choice)
1/2 tsp imitation cherry extract
~2/3 cup mixed berries
~1 tbsp shredded unsweetened coconut
Mix everything in a microwave bowl, add water if it you want it moister which I do! Microwave for 2-3 minutes and top with berries and coconut!
Add fake marshmallow fluff if desired =)
With a sugar cookie candle and some strawberry-vanilla black tea... I can feel the self love!
Have a great day! Please if you are "alone" don't spend this day down and out, use it to focus on the loving relationships that you DO have in your life!
Peace and Love!
