Knee issues? Back pain? Take a look at the type of shoes you are wearing.. and have a little fun. Take this test to find out the type of support you really need!
I have a flat/normal arch on the left. JB on the other hand has a SUPER high arch on the other side of the paper. After our century ride a few weekends ago he started with knee pain… so that’s what triggered our arch session.
I haven’t had issues since getting re-fit to my bike, and having new supportive Brooks ADRENALINE sneakers when I run. The foam roller has been a blessing too!
What type of arch do you have? do you even know? I would recommend doing this little test and find out!
Looking forward to the HOT weather this week… I better not hear anyone complaining about it!
I found this recipe @ Whole Living. It’s creamy, but thought it would be a little sweeter. I added a little cinnamon at the end to see if that would help, and it gave it a nice little spice The recipe makes a lot so perahaps if I make it next time I’ll just make 1/2.. heads up if you make it, you’re in for a feast!
I’ll be bringing it in this weekend to work because I won’t be able to eat it all! Yes, I’m working all weekend and Monday, and it’s going to be gorgeous out.. BOO HOO.
JB and I always joke around because whenever I don’t feel good I never admit to him that I’m actually sick because let’s face it- “I never get sick!”. He says I could be on my death bed and I would still say I’m not sick.. probably true.
But I’ll admit it this time.. I’m sick. We’re both sick actually. Since Tuesday. I’m convinced we got it from our trip out to Natick last Saturday, shopping around with all those people. Yep- that was definitely it.
I have been guzzling water, downing tons of fruit and veggies, but to no avail I’m still congested, feeling like…. crap.
So my mom tells me about this neti pot thing you stick up your nose to irrigate your sinuses and clears out everything. Uhhhh NO thanks!
But then I googled it, and read some reviews on it, and decided it was probably the best bet for me. If Dr. Oz says it’s good then I’ll try it
So I headed to Wal-Mart. Spent 14 bucks and gave it a whirl. (No I am not going to post a video demonstration… that’s what You Tube is for people!) But this guy will.. check out his spider babies..
I wouldn’t say it’s “life changing” like these people in the video, but it’s pretty awesome. Gross to think about but in reality makes sense. It’s washing away all the pollen, dirt and build up that gets caught in the fibers and hairs in your nasal cavity.
I was forced given a few of these muffins by Courtney a while ago. They’re full of protein and good stuff. Oh and JB loved them too. Perfect for before or after a work out. Or anytime really They are awesome!
I finally made them today with the old banana in the fridge. Because what else was I suppose to do with it? I made a 1/2 batch today using my mini muffin tins and a few regular size ones, But i’m sure I’ll be making more soon. So for a full batch here’s what you do..
Pre-heat your oven to 325.
Mix together the following:
2 whole eggs
2 egg whites
1/3 cup skim or soy milk
1 1/2 cups very ripe banana
1 cup honey
3 T. canola oil
3 T. unsweetened apple sauce
3/4 t. salt
1/2 t. cream of tartar
1 t. cinnamon
2 cups whole wheat flour
3 scoops vanilla whey protein powder
3/4 t. baking soda
2 t. baking powder
1/4 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
pour into muffin tins, and bake for 15-18 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.
