The podcast went really well today!! Listen to it here–I’m listening to it right now! lol! We talked for about 20 minutes about the blog, culinary school and my advice to new bloggers, all while sipping pinot noir! How fabulous was that?!
Before I left though I had a GREAT cardio workout!! I did 36 minutes on the elliptical, resistance punched up all the way and speed at 3.7. Boy, was it ever hard!! I found myself gripping the treadmill handlebars a ton and then I would picture Jillian’s hand slapping them away. I actually wore my HRM this time and it said I burned 400 calories…..I’d say so–I was a sweaty beast for sure at the end.
To refuel when I got home I had some grass 😉
I’m crossing my fingers that my Amazing Meal will get here tomorrow! Its not that I mind having just the SuperFood because I love the endless energy that the greens give me, but I do love that extra addition of the hemp and rice protein only available in the Amazing Meal. I am getting more used to drinking SuperFood plain with water though (the secret is adding ice and shaking really, really hard). Remember, the 40% discount on the 2lb Amazing Meal bulk container ends tomorrow night!!!! I’m glad I stocked up when I did! 😉
I also had a super charge me cookie and more green tea! I only have one cookie left now—guess someone will be baking more asap!
I talked to Brendan again yesterday and he wanted yall to made sure you knew about his free Thrive in 30 Program available on his website. I’ve actually watched a few of his videos and they are great! The Thrive Program is a 30 day online free program made up of concise written and video segments that Brendan created to help busy people transition to a high-performance, whole food, plant based diet. Participants are emailed three times a week for four weeks and each email consists of a distilled written component of the book, The Thrive Diet, with the most pertinent information. And if you don’t feel like reading, you can simply watch the video segments. So, in about 20 minutes a week, for four weeks, you can gain enough applicable info to immediately begin making health and performance gains.
After the podcast I was whisked away to lunch with the food editor, Brian, which was very cool except our food really was not that good. We picked SoHo Sushi because neither one of us had ever been there and we both love sushi. I got the sashimi lunch plate which was okay if you are a sashimi person. It was nothing to write home about. The salmon and the tuna were both okay but the white fish in the middle was disgusting and I didn’t even eat it!
