This week has been super busy already – but also very productive which is great! And while I usually do focus a lot of my energy on this blog, I feel like I’ve been scrambling blog-wise this week. I got out of the idea of forcing any posts many moons ago, so here’s just a quick update of what’s been going on fitness and food wise, in between my non-blog endeavors. Vegetarians: Close Your Eyes. BACON!
Growing up I hated bacon. I think now it was because I never had the Canadian bacon and instead ate those thin burnt strips. I just thought it was disgusting. I’ve grown a passion for bacon (in moderation). But I prefer the thick meaty strips of bacon and I try to remove a lot of the fat with paper towel blotting. But still, bacon is a rare treat.
I made this bacon, egg, cheese, spinach and mayo sandwich for dinner both Monday and Tuesday nights this week. I had it on Ezekiel Bread — which is by far the best store-bought “shelf” bread I’ve ever had. This bread is found in the frozen section and comes at a hefty price, $4.99 per loaf around here. But it’s so worth it.
If you buy it you just need to promise yourself to use it reasonably and not make a meal out of bread. But pretty much this bread is as natural as you can get, hence why it’s frozen, as it does not contain preservatives. Ezekiel Bread is also organic and is made from 100% sprouted grains. No flour!
Fitness-wise I rested Sunday, ran 3 miles on the treadmill Monday and did an at home yoga DVD on Tuesday. My training schedule called for strength training but I wasn’t feeling it. I love how I’m only one week into my half-marathon training schedule and already I digress.
