Feel free to hum that LMFAO song to yourself now. I am.
Ready for that obligatory recap? Awesome! Has anyone else noticed that I only post weekly workout recaps when I am proud of the workouts I've done? I just realized that, and it's not all productive except as a way to brag. So I guess I'm fine with it after all.
Monday: 5 miles of running, 12 miles of spinning
Tuesday: 3.5 miles of running, 45 minutes of weights
Wednesday: 8 miles of running
Thursday: 16.5 miles of spin
Friday: 15 miles of running
Saturday: REST DAY :)
Sunday: 4 miles of running, 45 minutes of weights
Totals: 35.3 miles of running, 28.5 miles of cycling, 90 minutes of weights
Verdict: Imagine me doing a little happy dance right now. Toss in an hour of yoga in there somewhere and this would qualify as my perfect week.
If you still have that LMFAO song stuck in your head, I really apologize. I started writing this post on Sunday and it's still stuck in my head 24 hours later, so at least I'm suffering right there with you.
I've been experimenting with some new soy and gluten-free meals the past few days. I had been buying frozen GF pizzas but they seem expensive ($7 for one serving) and they weren't even that great. So I bought a few frozen GF pizza bases to make my own.
I won't claim that this has anything on traditional wheat flour pizza crusts. BUT - it was hands down the best gluten free pizza I've eaten anywhere, including in restaurants that specialize in the stuff. The crust is doughy without crumbling apart, something that seems to be tough to recreate in GF foods. I topped this one with tomato sauce, onions, broccoli, ham, tomatoes and shredded mozzarella.
Obviously nothing pairs with pizza quite like beer. Or in this case, cider. I decided to try some naturally gluten free hard cider made from organic apple juice. (I bought it from Whole Foods - are you surprised? I checked next to the 24 packs of Miller Light at Walmart but I guess they were all out.) I ended up with Crispin - a brand I had never heard of.
It was...alright. It took about 5 sips to taste anything other than cold apple juice. It's definitely not comparable to beer. I would drink this instead of a cold beer at a picnic or a barbecue, because it's quite refreshing, but it's nothing spectacular.
Do you make your own pizza dough, use a premade base, buy the whole thing frozen or order in?
All of the above. I just started making my own dough recently, and Tim loves it. I haven't tried a GF homemade dough yet though.
Are you a fan of hard cider?
I always associate cider with my grandad in England. I remember him drinking it when I was a kid. Cider has never been my first choice for an alcoholic drink, but it's not bad.
