Happy Sunday everyone!
I hope that you’ve been having a great weekend. We were expecting a break from the heat and humidity but unfortunately, that didn’t happen. When I stepped out of my door Saturday morning for my run, I believe that it was 100% humidity. Fun. At least, I had this new fun toy to play with.
It’s the Polar RC3 GPS and has both a heart rate monitor and GPS. I’m super curious about learning more about my heart rate training, especially after reading about Miss Zippy’s experience with MAF training this summer. I know that I probably run too hard on my runs in general (which isn’t all that fast for you runners out there) and I know that’s not a good thing in the long-term. It will be interesting to get real-time feedback on my heart rate.
I received the RC3 GPS through my affiliation with Fitfluential to test out and review. I plan on testing it out for the next couple of weeks and will have a full review around the end of the month.
By the way, I ran an easy 4 miles Saturday and it went well. No signs of asthma.
Since it’s been so hot and humid around here, I haven’t been super inspired to cook. Plus, we didn’t do a proper grocery shop last week so we scrounged around to make do with what we had. But in reality? All I really want to eat is ice cream but I wish that I could eat it as well as Everett.
But we finally made it to the grocery store and was inspired. I found myself with a few spare hours yesterday and managed to prep some food for the week – a big batch of quinoa for salads and for a batch of quinoa pancakes, cut up fresh fruit, plantain bread and green apple and coconut 2-bite treats (cannot wait to try these!).
I also tried to make my first batch of cold brew coffee. I drink way too much iced coffee that I figured that I should try to make it myself. Fingers crossed it turns out!
Here’s my menu for the week:
Sunday: Italian-style Halibut
Monday: Salmon Quinoa Salad
Tuesday: Spaghetti Squash Pie with no meat
Thursday: Dinner out and drinks with friends
Friday: Dinner out / Order in
Saturday: Salmon with mango salsa
