I have made a few changes over the past week that have affected some of my link selections below. The first change is that I am giving a gluten-free diet a whirl. I would love to see a day when I don't have to buy Costco-sized toilet paper, or a time when I don't have to see my massage therapist every two weeks without fail. On Tuesday I will be one week gluten-free and I have to say - I am jonesing for some wheat like I have never jonesed before. I am dreaming of a huge slab of white bread from Smith's Bakery with tons of melted butter and homemade jam and peanut butter. However, I have not yet broken, so will keep at this for a month to see if I notice any difference.
In addition, I am giving running another chance. I have rebuilt the muscles in my legs with spin class three times a week over the past eight months or so and am aiming to do the Run or Dye 5k challenge at the end of September. This will be the third race I have registered for, but I am hoping to not be injured for this one so that I can actually run. I have done two runs this week, one of which was a treadmill run at slightly under 4k and another 5.5k pavement run. I took precautionary measures and iced my knees after each run and have had luck so far. Fingers crossed this will continue!
Popsugar - 400 Calorie Tush-Toning Interval Workout
In honour of the re-introduction of running into my life, I am aiming to tackle this workout later this week.
Centsational Girl - DIY Personalized Notecards
I have a great love for stationery. I obsess over letterpress, lined envelopes, 100% cotton notecards, envelope seals, monograms and more. I love the idea of being able to create a notecard to my own specifications. For times when I feel the need to indulge, my go-to source is Erika Firm at Delphine - she is brilliant and her work is top-notch - particularly the letterpress.
Oh She Glows - Quick 'n Easy No-Bake Protein Bars
My cravings for wheat have me dreaming of not only bread, but pretty much any type of pastry or baked good. This looks like a viable option that contains two of my non-wheat favourite things in life - peanut butter and chocolate!
