Passion For Pink

74 comments

Thank you all for your congrats about my Glo Bar announcement! Your comments honestly made my day. Thank you, thank you, thank you for your support!

My morning started off with something I haven’t done since before vacation…my Booty Camp DVD! My muscles had a nice break for a couple weeks, but it is time to get back to it. I vow that I am going to stick with strength training in 2010! I find that it is so easy to get out of the habit of doing strength work…especially if you are a (previous) cardio junkie like me. It takes constant discipline and commitment for me to be able to consistently do strength work, but the benefits are so worth it!

[By the way the DVD is not online for sale yet, but I will let you know if/when it is!]

I did Level 2 today which was about 40 minutes of total body work + cardio segments. Sure woke me up!

I was not craving my normal green monster this morning (the horrors I know). All I could think about was the leftover QUINOA in the fridge saying, ‘Pour maple syrup over me and GOBBLE ME UP!’ :mrgreen:

I had about 1 cup of cooked quinoa (heated) and 2 tablespoons of pure maple syrup.

With a bunny scoop of raw almond butter. I was trying to recreate the wonderful almond butter and maple combination! ;)

Pretty in Pink Plate from target! :mrgreen:

Breakfast just doesn’t feel right without some type of veggie or fruit, so I had this super juicy grapefruit to go along with it! I don’t know how I went the first 25 years of my life hating grapefruit, but I sure am making up for lost time now!

It was a great breakfast!

I’ve tried quinoa as a sweet concoction. Looks delicious. I can’t stay on a strength training for the life of me.

I’m a little late, but CONGRATULATIONS on hopefully getting your bars into a store. That is awesome news and I am sure it feels great to see your hard work coming to fruition.

Also, I agree. Once I get out of the habit of ST it is SO hard for me to get back into it. It’s not my first love (that’s running!), so motivating myself to keep doing it is important to me.

I absolutely love Quinoa but have never thought of making it for breakfast. I make a recipe that Tosca Reno has in her book, “The Eating Clean Diet”. It’s the “Sun dried tomato quinoa” and just made a batch Mon. evening. I’d like a recipe for just how to make plain old quinoa so I can have it for other meals. I buy it in bulk and had to hunt out recipes for it. That meal w/the maple syrup & almond butter sounds delish!

I just love reading your blog, it has really changed my views about eating too.

As for my passions….hmmmm, I have a bunch:
My husband #1
My life
Animals
Running
Triathlon
Horseback riding
Just about anything outdoors, hiking, cycling, backpacking, swimming, gardening
Wine and Dirty Martinis
Reading
Jewelry
and I could go on, but these are some of my favorite things

Your title made me think of the Aerosmith song! My motto is, if it is food and it is pink, it’s probably healthy!

You always have the cutest dishes. Every time I see them, it makes me want to go dish shopping.

My passions-
teaching and working with kids (I truly love what I do)
helping animals
traveling
learning about myself and other people

Fitness used to be one of them, but I’m coping right now with having let myself get so out of shape. It’s a slow climb back to where I was, but I’m getting there. I’m looking forward to getting back to that point.

Hey Angela,
Congrats. I am very excited. You might need to hire some help soon…Would that be good news or bad news for you? I look forward to having the bars make their way out to Edmonton. My kids adore the Adore bars!

As for the two posts a day. Stick with what works for you. If one is what you like stick with it. Honestly, I have dropped reading a few blogs because there are too many short posts that in all truthfulness don’t actual tackle a real subject. They just give some lip service and then a few funny pictures. I love you posts since they have some depth to them. However, I am sure you will keep making it work whatever you decide.

That’s a fabulous quote! My passions are:
– writing
– watching films
– knitting
– reading
– learning about myself
– blogging
– learning
– physics (I’m a nerd like that)
– exercising.

I like this exercise – I’ve just realised that I’m not doing most of the things I enjoy doing the most! Gotta sort that out.

My passions are:

– writing
– cooking
– running
– spending time with Hunni
– Children

I love writing my blog even if it takes me a while and I don’t think I’m that good at it. I like cooking new stuff all the time and experiment with interesting things all the time and I love blogs for this. I’m getting better at running even if I’ll never be fast. Hunni and I try to plan fun trips for just us even if it is just local since he is my Best Friend. And we are praying really hard as to when to start the adoption process for our own children. Until then we work and enjoy our children in church.
