With all the hype about a nasty storm rolling through DC I was pretty sure that today would be a snow day. It is! The government has shut down all of it’s offices, meaning I can’t work! The best part about it? It’s hardly snowing and the roads are totally clear right now so I can probably sneak out in a little to go hang with friends. Best snow day ever.
Work outs this week have been great, I went to yoga on Monday and there was a great sub there so the class was super challenging and stretched out my sore muscles amazingly. Tuesday was a 4 miler (@6.4) and then soccer play offs. If you read this often you know that my team rarely has enough players for subs (heck the first few games we just played down people) and last night was no different. We had exactly enough to field the team and that is all.
Halves were 25 minutes last night (for Dec they were 20) and because we ended the regular season in LAST place we were playing the first place team. Well we won! We played our hearts out and squeezed out a 3-2 victory. I also managed to get a bloody nose in the middle of the 2nd half, woops. That was a total nuisance, I felt bad leaving the girls to play a man down so I was just willing my nose to stop bleeding and it finally did.
Winning that game means that we play on the 19th in the 2nd round of the playoffs, the icing on the cake? Outdoor soccer starts next week so on the 19th we will have an indoor game at 7pm and an outdoor game at 9pm, there are 4 of us that play on both teams… it’s going to be a longggg day!
Back to this snow day… I made a killer batch of pancakes for breakfast, watched about 4 episodes of 90210, and then tried to go up to the gym but all the treadmills were full, looks like I’m gunna have to muster up the motivation to get back up there later, ugh. Here is the pancake recipe:
Chocolate Banana Pancakes
1 scoop sunbutter
1 scoop hemp protein powder (or just do chocolate chips / cocoa powder, I’m just trying to use the stuff up)
1 scoop of unsweetened coconut flakes
coconut oil for cooking
