Only one day per week can be a Sunday morning, but everyday can be a sundae morning, hehe. This Coconut and Vanilla Sundae with Chocolate Mousse sure did hit the spot!


To make the chocolate mousse, blend 2 bananas, 1/3 of a ripe avocado, 1 tbsp of cacao powder, and 1 tsp of maple syrup. Set aside and make the icecream by blending 2 frozen bananas, previously chopped, 1/3 cup of desiccated coconut, and 1 tsp of vanilla paste until smooth and creamy. Layer the icecream and mousse in a jar and top with sweetened cacao nibs and coconut chips. Mmm papi ✌️

Awesome day!

Posting this as a reminder to myself…..

Whenever you don’t feel like working out, DO IT ANYWAY! 

I worked 13 hours today but was supposed to do 3 miles for my training plan…and came home and just made myself go run. I ran two sub 9 minute miles, which I never do! So pumped! I was super tired after work and this gave me a ton of energy.

Today!

Dinner: kale, romaine, and spinach salad with celery, red peppers, walnuts, cucumber, and Gorgonzola. Tuna with olive oil mayo and sriracha, and green beans!

After several years of using Lose It I feel like I needed a reboot. Day 1 on my fitness pal. I think I did pretty well! Usually I over eat carbs and eat way too little protein. In the last week I have also gone from a vegetarian (for the last 17 years) to eating fish. It’s weird and it will take time but I think my health needs it.

Needing some serious motivation today. Collection of before and afters.

I miss how I looked last year. I know scales are bullshit but I think I am up between 5 and 7 lbs. It’s just one of those days. I ran 9 miles this morning, I’m supposed to feel good about myself….
