Hey guys! Hope everyone had a TERRIFIC week :)
So...this past Saturday was me race (it was a four-miler) and it went SO well! NO knee pain AT ALL and crossed the finish in 35:00. Signing up for my next one (a 5K) this week (it is at the beginning of April!) :D
Also, I have my first competition since my knee injury one week from this coming Saturday!! SO excited and nervous! I'm against only two other girls, but nerve-racking none the less...:/
So in my fridge/pantry/cabinet right now I have miscellaneous things I purchased on impulse (come on...you know you do it too--haha) that I legit have NO IDEA WHAT TO USE THEM FOR!!! The reason I am telling you all his is so you can help me figure out what to use them for! :D So...here goes ;)
Shredded unsweetened coconut.
One of my favorite things about Whole Foods is the bulk bins. When I go down the bulk aisle, I am like a kid in a candy store ;) I have gotten in the habit of buying about 20-50 cents of bulk items that I've never tried before so I won't waste lots of money if I don't like it. So far, it's worked pretty well :) This week's WF trip recruited the following:
Last but not least (and I DEFF know what I'm using these for!!)...CHIA SEEDS!
In closing, I wanted to share with you all an experience I had earlier tonight. I got the opportunity to cook/serve food for a group that provides dinner for the homeless in that community every Wednesday. Though I have to admit, this kind of thing isn't really my "cup of tea" you could say, I am SO glad I did it. It was a wonderful experience and really made me realize how privileged I am. It was volunteer, so there's no money, but in some ways that makes it even more special to do it out of sheer knowledge that it is the right thing to do.
Hope everyone has a blessed week ahead.
Stay happy. Stay healthy.
