Today I took a well-deserved rest day. I had a good workout week, so today was all about giving my body a break. I'm linking up with Tricia and Holly again for the Weekly Wrap, but first...
First, I want to tell you about the food we had today.
Hello, gluten free pancakes! mrC and I watched playoff hockey and then had brunch. These Bob's Red Mill pancakes were so good. Even though I would love to eat just carbs, we did have eggs too.
mrC had to run to the airport for a bit, and while he was gone I hit up the foam roller. I've been working this into my daily routine and focusing on rolling slowly to make it count. The slower I roll, the more tight spots I find compared to when I roll too fast. There may have been a few shrieks during today's session.
For linner (or whatever you call late lunch/ early dinner), we made homemade pizza. I found Udi's gluten free pizza crust on my last grocery trip and we still had some LaRosa's pizza sauce left over from my BFF's surprise birthday box. In about 10 minutes we had two personal sized yummy cheese pizzas. I like just cheese, but mrC is already planning the toppings on his next pizza ---> pineapple, mushroom and onion.
If you came for the weekly wrap, here you go:
Monday - I'm going to call this an active rest day. I walked to the plaza for groceries and I cleaned and conditioned our wood floors ---> it felt like a full body workout.
Tuesday - Ran a 5K with longer intervals
Wednesday - Po Toi Island tour with the American Women's Association to celebrate a very important birthday.
Thursday - Core strength workout that you might have seen on Instagram and running errands in the rain.
Friday - Burned off a ton of calories in Bodystep class. It was hot. It was tough, I loved it.
Saturday - A double workout with some hills and a little time on the water.
Sunday - rest day
