Reed woke up and thawed out my other bacon-wrapped filet for me and I threw it on the Foreman as I got ready for work. I had it, green beans, watermelon, and a couple left over apple cinnamon cookies.
Watermelon and 1 cookie
Turkey burgers and roasted veggies (broccoli, cauliflower, squash, and zucchini). This all comes in a HUGE bag in the frozen vegetable section in Wal-Mart.
Pre heat oven to 400
Take the veggies and thaw them in a strainer.
Foil wrap a baking sheet and spray with non-stick cooking spray
Dump veggies in a bag with oil (coconut oil, olive oil, bacon fat, whatever you want). I used EVOO. Put this in there along with bacon- I used bacon bits because I didn't have bacon. Next time I will slice bite sized bacon pieces (uncooked) and put them in the bag too.
Lots of S&P and shake the bag vigorously- do the hokey pokey and turn yourself around.
Dump onto the baking sheet and throw in the oven
Keep turning the veggies every 10 minutes for a total of 30-35 minutes.
OMG- these rocked- best way to eat vegetables hands down!
|These are not my vegetables but I need to add onions! This was taken from:|
Mi Cocina salad- we went to a wedding this morning. We then went to Ikea which we forgot smelled like giant cinnamon roll that everyone is walking around eating while they shop for Swedish furniture.
We snacked on some dark chocolate on our way home. Not exactly Paleo but we remained positive that we walked out without a cinnamon roll or ice cream cone.
Leftover turkey burgers and roasted vegetables
Went to a late movie and packed some strawberries and bananas and apple cinnamon cookies. Not bad to walk past the popcorn and candy boxes.
Ok, on to prevention and what to do if you get hurt! First off, I have learned that it is best to warm up with light jogging or a row or some air squats. Get a thin bit of sweat on you before a workout. If you are sore, stretch out a little then do the cardio needed to sweat. Do not stretch like a gymnast for 30 minutes before a mile run; stretch after your workout. Stretch very well; it not only helps with soreness it also helps your flexibility so you will be able to perform your lifts, runs, cycling, etc better. Some people love to roll on foam rollers (ie my brother and my friend Candace). I like it for my IT bands and thighs but don't like it much for anything else; would rather get a massage. Try it and see what you think. Soak in epsom salt in the bath tub- also helps with relieving soreness. It relieves bloating too which is just a bonus for us women!
I have found that rotating ice and heat helps relieve my soreness in a matter of 24 hours. Take a large Ziploc bag and a dish towel. Wet the dish towel thoroughly, put some peppermint oil on it and pop it in the microwave for a minute and a half. Put the towel in the bag and place on sore area. Make your own ice pack! Its awesome, cheap, and super easy! Take a large Ziploc bag and put a bottle of rubbing alcohol and equal part water. Throw this into the freezer and let freeze about 2 hours. When you pull it out it will be moldable like the reusable bags you buy at the store.
Stay healthy- my hands are tired... Treat yourself and soak in the bath or get a massage! You earned it!
