A whole lotta this…
And a whole lotta that…
And a whole lotta water…
Makes a great pre-race dinner.
This is one of my favourite meals ever!
- PC Frozen Veggie mix
- 1 T Fonatine Sante Hummus (Best hummus you will ever buy- dead serious!!!)
- 1/2 T Kraft Zesty Italian dressing
- 1 heaping T of Mr. Spice Salt-free organic Honey BBQ sauce (best BBQ sauce you will ever buy!!!)
- Freshly ground black pepper
- Canned flaked salmon
I have been meaning to review this salt-free BBQ sauce for a while now. Ok, a week. I guess I’m not too behind.
Anyways, this is the BEST BBQ Sauce my taste buds have ever tasted! And it is salt-free and organic! I honestly still can’t believe it. There is only like 15 mg of salt per serving. Unbelievable. You seriously won’t believe me until you try this stuff! I put it on everything now!
This dinner was just spectacular.
I snacked on this ZEN Glo Bar tonight with chia seeds, poppy seeds, and black sesame seeds:
My glycogen stores are brimming with healthy fuel. :) I like.
I have been busy all day making Glo Bars! I am quite happy because I am getting lots of repeat customers. Always a good sign!
I had to make new labels to correspond with my new names.
I can’t wait until I am at the stage to order custom packaging! It takes me so long to package these babies up! The only thing I don’t know about is ordering packages for ALL my flavours…I have like 13 now! I’m not sure how I am going to handle that one. Ideas???
Here is my RACE KIT!!!!
I am meeting up with a few blog readers tomorrow- I can’t wait to meet Gillian, Alex, Emily, and Jon! 7:30am sharp!
Guys, I am so so so excited for tomorrow. I think I have truly found my ‘fitness’ calling in life because I have NEVER been so excited about exercise in my life. Sure, I have done some fun things for fitness in the past (I used to be a competitive fastpitch pitcher for many years), but I have not felt this kind of excitement in a long time.
I love the competitive nature of running in a race…it fires me up and I just want to show off all this hard work and sweat to myself! I was thinking about it, and I have been dong just cardio, plain old boring cardio, for a few years now, and I haven’t done anything to redeem myself for it.
I see these races as a pat on my back. I know it sounds funny to say that since it is obviously hard work, but I really see a race as a way to congratulate myself for being dedicated to my health.
I start to tear up when I think about this, but I honestly never would have been able to do this if this was 5 years ago and I was still starving myself and treating my body poorly. There is no way in hell I could have done this. I was weak, had no energy, and I felt drained all the time.
I will never ever go back to that living hell.
My quality of life is so much greater than I have ever imagined. I have all of YOU to thank for supporting me and encouraging me throughout all of this.
I finally feel like I have learned one of the hardest lessons that I have ever known.
Food is NOT the enemy. Food is beautiful, energizing, wonderful, and fuel for our body, among other things.
Our bodies are not the enemy.
I’m sure my body is saying to me, ‘Angela, I tried to tell you. If only you had treated me properly all those years you would have seen just how much I could do for you.’
So my message tonight for all of you, is to treat your body GOOD. No, not just good, treat your body like the wonderful BEING that it is. Do you ever just stop and think of all the amazing processes our bodies carry out each day? Crazy isn’t it.
Be good to you, and your body will respond a million times over.
Off to pack. :)
