Will run for pie

23 Jan

Happy Monday folks!

How was your weekend? I had every intention on blogging a couple of times over the weekend and it just never happened.

Friday after work I went right to Hot Power Yoga. It kicked my butt, again. It hurt so good. After yoga I went to the grocery store and happened upon this:


Now, I love Red Velvet cake, and Ice Cream is my favorite food EVER so Red Velvet Cake Ice Cream is pretty much a dream come true. It’s described as “Red Velvet Cake Batter Ice Cream with Red Velvet Cake Pieces & a Cream Cheese Frosting Swirl.” My mouth is watering just thinking about it. As soon as I got home I had a few spoonfuls right from the container, and it did not disappoint. It is amazing. Throughout the weekend I had a few spoonfuls here and there and I’m happy to report that I made it through the weekend only eating about a 3rd of the pint. This is a big deal to me – I could finish one of these containers off in an evening if I wanted to, haha. I’m trying to make this one last so I can enjoy it for longer.

Saturday I had plans to go for a run but I woke up to this:

We got a few inches of snow, and the roads (and sidewalks, and trails) were a mess. Running was a no go.

So instead the hubby and I cleaned the apartment like CRAZY – I’m talking scrubbing floors, toilets and the bathtub crazy. In between the cleaning, to keep my sanity I also baked up a few recipes I found on Pinterest.

First up was Cake Batter Pudding Cookies from Chef in Training.

CakeBatterPuddingCookiesSo good! They’re so fluffy and soft in the middle thanks to the cake mix that’s incorporated into them. I’ll definitely be making them again.

Next up was Forgotten Kiss Cookies from Tasty Kitchen.

After baking and cleaning, we met my parents for dinner before falling a sleep embarrassingly early for a Saturday night.

Yesterday I got in a 4.5 mile run in the morning. It was supposed to be 6 miles, but I ran a different route than normal and got back to my car in 4.5. And it was so freaking cold (like the teens, ugh) that my face and legs were frozen and I couldn’t force myself to go out for another 1.5.

I received this in my google reader this morning. LOVE IT.

I think that’s pretty accurate, though you could really swap any food product in for the pie as far as I’m concerned. 🙂

Planned workouts for the week
Monday – Hot Power Yoga
Tuesday – Zumba
Wednesday – 30 minute run
Thursday – run 7×400
Friday – EA Active Abs n Arms
Saturday – ZUMBATHON!!!
Sunday – Run 5k for speed

Hm, I just realized there’s no rest days in there. I may have to take a rest day friday rather than doing some arm work.

I hope your week is off to a great start!

    Wow, I dont know how you do all that baking! I’d eat every single one. I too have a love of Ben and jerry’s, though not of red velvet cake. My weakness is the Creme Brulee flavor…which luckily is not sold everywhere.

    Looks like you are having a good exercise week! Mine is a mess!
