Almond Flour

Hey guys! Today started a little crazy. B wasn't feeling to hot this morning and vomited not once.. but twice... No fever. She acted fine? Just barfed then went back to being her busy, happy little self. But it left me with quite the clean up.. clean the couch, clean the pillows, scrub the carpets, change my clothes, change her clothes, wash the clothes, give her a bath.. X2. 

All before 9 am. Oh, the life of being a mommy. Who doesn't appreciate curdly milk barf at 7 am?

It was fun reading all about everyone’s reasons why we run or what motivates us to run. If you missed that post, it’s a must read. Check it out here. After a long morning I was able to get a killer workout in.

Workout:

Today's workout was a sweaty one! At GPP we completed this workout for four rounds "for time"

I have to say its one of my favorites. It involved a little a lot of running! It started to downpour on my third round. But I didn’t mind, I love running in the rain. I find it a little refreshing, but the wind.. that’s a different story.

I have been using almond flour a lot lately. Although it can get pretty pricey to buy at the health food store so I just decided it would be best to just make my own! Its actually really simple and doesn’t require as much time as I thought it would.

It also makes for a awesome oatmeal mix in or yogurt/ice cream topper!

Yesterday at the gym I pulled up to this…

A little ironic?  Yes, that is an ice cream truck making a delivery.. to the gym? No wonder those protein shakes are so good..

Have a good night!
