This bug really messed with my work out schedule this week. Yesterday I crawled into bed at 4:45pm, yet I was still hopeful to get in my Friday morning gym session. No go crazy lady. I am hopeful I'll still be able to run tomorrow morning for my 8th long run of half marathon training. However, I won't make my self sicker to do it. We shall see.....
Weekly weigh in time. I was really scared to weigh in this week considering how much fun I had this past weekend and missing a work out, however, I lost .2 which at this stage in the game for me is significant so whatever I'll take it. 3.7 pounds to goal. Slow and steady wins the race right?
I've tried a few new gluten free meals this week I'd like to share with ya'll. I've been getting really creative with my gluten free super foods, and everything I prepare is quick and easy. I'm not the kind of girl who likes to spend a lot of time in the kitchen doing prep work or slaving over super involved recipes. Ain't nobody got time fo dat!

I tried this snack yesterday in honor of National Peanut Butter Day. I made a serving of Chocolate PB2 and combined with banana and fat free Reddi Whip. I got this idea from Renee at Tales of a Carnivore on Facebook! Go give her a like- I mean hello we all need more ideas like this! Yum!
