We’re almost to the weekend, so that’s something to be excited about, right?! It’s been a realllyyyyyy busy week for me, but a good one at that! This weekend, I’m taking a super quick trip to Arizona for my Grandpa’s Memorial. He passed away a few days before Christmas at the ripe age of 92. It’s sad, but at the same time he lived a really long and fruitful life. He was a Holocaust survivor, and until the age of 91, was still going to the gym 5 DAYS A WEEK. That right there should be inspiration to anyone that you just don’t have an excuse! I will miss him a lot, but thankful for the 25 years I got to have him in my life. He is a true inspiration to me and definitely gave me the exercises genes!!
Tonight I’m headed to the rock climbing gym for another bouldering session. I plan to get a 3 mile run in beforehand too. Woohoo!
While I was supposed to hit up Crossfit yesterday, I knew my body was just not into it. I’m trying to do a better job of listening to my body so that I don’t overtrain. When I finished working yesterday, I headed home and decided I would take a needed rest day. Once I made some dinner and surfed the net for a bit, I just couldn’t sit still anymore and ended up heading to the gym anyways! I just walked on the treadmill for a while, but thought it was interesting that I just can’t sit still. I am not very good at taking rest days, but I am trying to learn! Do you have trouble taking rest days? If I’m busy enough, I can do it, but if I’m not it’s nearly impossible!!
Since I skipped Crossfit yesterday, I plan to go tomorrow around lunchtime.
I was craving something sweet last night, but didn’t want to wreck my diet. I mixed together a few ingredients and ended up with a delicious frosting!!!
Chocolate Peanut Butter Frosting
2 TBSP PB2
1 TBSP Unsweetened Pure Cocoa
1 Packet Stevia
Combine the PB2 and Cocoa in a small dish or bowl. Add a little bit of water at a time until you get the consistency of a frosting. Then enjoy!
This can be eaten by itself, or you can top toast, muffins, pancakes, and more with it! Here’s the best part:
