I havent posted much lately because of college and trying to get a job, but mind you Ive worked out every day in preparation for my first road bike “ride” (not really a race, its for charity) thats coming in less than a month. Gulp. 35 miles of New England countryside. I can’t wait!!!!
Also Ive lost some weight (dont know why, but its not good) so Ive been baking again to try to put on a few pounds. Today I made Gluten free pumpkin muffins. Almond flour, Brown rice flour, 2 egg whites, 1 cup of pumpkin, a little baking soda, some cinnamon, and 3 tablespoons of agave. They’re actually really good! Im trying to get a job at Trader Joes now so I can get a discount on Quinoa and almonds and protein bars and stuff so well see how that goes.
So you know those progress pics Ive been talking about taking? I lack motivation. Does anyone actually care?
Im looking into exercise science majors/nutrition minors. Any good school recommendations? Vermont University has my eye right now…
So yeah thats the gist of whats been going on in Moriah world lately.
Narcissistic… haha thats what fitspo reminds me of. And I know that make me kind of a hypocrite because I participate but its what it reminds me of ;P
Fitness makes me think of the workouts that I love and feel privileged to do. It makes me think of racing and how I cant wait to do my first bike race in 4 years this october.
Healthy means more to me than you’d think. Healthy makes me think of now. It makes me think of how far Ive come. It reminds me of buying weights, getting groupons for yoga classes to slowly get me back on my feet, eating 100 grams of protein, and clipping coupons for protein bars because I feel bad about how much they cost my mom. Healthy is a word that reminds me that it was all worth it. Healthy was the reason I did what I did and am doing what I do. Healthy is a word that Im proud to say is no longer a dream.
hahaaaa I forgot to add this into my other post…. my food. Not that it matters but if you’ve done it before, you know it helps to see it all laid out.
guess what my new favorite fruit is… heehee. Yeah Im going crazy.
Well since Ive hit 108 Id like to gain some more weight before school starts. I wanted to be 115lbs of muscle by september but I realize now that I don’t put on weight that fast so Ill take 110-112. Im so happy I hit 108!!!!! And its all muscle and I was eating peanut butter the whole time!!! Booyahhhh!!!!
One last confession. Ive had a renewed intrest in bacon. where did these cravings come from????? OK well I have a friend who’s really fun to eat meat with so we can just blame him. But don’t worry Im keeping this under control :)
Sooooo today was my last day of Chest&Back. I just realized it was my last one this round…. I can do decline pushups which is big for me but other than that I wish I could see more progress in that exercise routine ;(. All the same Im disappointed in myself for not taking before pics cause i really think my butt looks 20x awesomer and I wish I had something to compare it to. Oh well. So Ive got 15 days total left in P90x and I really want to buckle down and make the most of it. So therefore…
So yeah those are my goals so hopefully Ill stick with them for once :P Thankfully the olympics are starting and I love to watch them before/after I work out and I feel like Im almost a part of it. Its great motivation! So anyone have any good/easy/healthy recipes? Specifically ones they’ve used with p90x?
Soo remember that black bean salad I raved about? The one I made? Created by the mind of the girl once thought destined for a life of cold cereal and drive-through coffee? Well here it is…*cue the triumphant music* coming to a kitchen near youuu…. should you accept this challenge and follow my totally un-professional directions of sorts.
By the way, this is vegan, gluten free, and dairy free. Its probably also free of many other things but gluten and dairy just happen to be my areas of expertise.
Ok so now you get to know what to do with these lovingly knifed ingredients.
Hahahahaaaa well I enjoyed my first attempt at writing a recipe and making it semi understandable, and I also must add again that my super-sensitive tummy enjoyed this greatly, as well as my hard-working muscles. I do believe I shall try this thing again someday. So please let me know if you made it or at least thought it a commendable try :)
