I received a text message from Steph today that said, “Snow?!… I think God is testing us to see if we are truly committed…” Yesterday was brisk and while I was in the middle of my 30 minute run it started sleeting. It was not a nice snowfall, instead it was hard chunks of ice snow smacking my face. My brain decided running faster would make the time go faster, but 30 minutes is 30 minutes. I did however have my fastest time! At the beginning of this training I also committed to eating a cleaner diet. It has been much less of a struggle than I anticipated. I have removed preservatives, unbleached flour, and refined sugar with little to no issues. The challenge of finding fun new things to fulfill my cravings has been refreshing!
Some of my favorite new finds (which are probably not new to you!):
Sprouted (preservative free) Bread
Smucker’s Natural Peanut Butter
Trader Joe’s White Corn Tortillas
Tomorrow I am going to try to make ice cream out of bananas. Wish me luck!
