I’ve taken a brief hiatus from my waffle kick to make some different variations of gnocchi.
However, I will say that I have ZERO patience with fashioning the gnocchis in any sort of uniform shapes.
I used this recipe from Closet Cooking, and did some sautéing on the side. Turkey bacon + kale + apples & cinnamon in a tablespoon of coconut oil.
20 Minutes AMRAP:
- 20 kettlebell swings (30lbs)
- 20 kb sumo dead lift high pulls (30lbs)
- 20 one arm kb clean & presses (25lbs)
I made it through 4 rounds, minus a few clean & presses.
Now, on to the “perks of cold weather.”
Well, it’s no secret that I hate on winter. Mostly because it’s so stinking cold. So I’ve been trying to think of some of the positives. The key word is definitely “trying.” I know it would help if I took up a winter sport. But that’s not going to happen. They’re all too dangerous. Haha. Except maybe snowshoeing. Did you know Pippa could snowshoe!?!?
Anyways, I thought of one today!! While it takes me FOREVER to get out the door in cold weather (extra clothes have to be found!!), we do run faster right away in order to warm up. Nice weather: our first mile is usually 10 minutes. In colder weather, we knock that down to 8:30 right away!!!
Maybe some non-black winter running gear would cheer us up a little?!! I think Pippa is going to need a little vest soon. We saw a puppy this morning with a vest, and I’m pretty sure she was jealous!
We ran 3.03 in 25:50. Not really fast, but not checking-my-Instagram-feed pace either. I ran another 2.5 of intervals at the gym later.
Another mini perk? Winter running jackets have POCKETS for things like jangly keys and droppable iPhones.
One other perk I thought of this weekend?
If you go to Panera before you go shopping, your drinks stay cold while you are in the mall!!!!
Isn’t this a good look on the Boykin? He actually got a little trim tonight! His curly little ears get matted. Kevin occasionally has to put him in a headlock and cut out some of the dreads. Probably from scraps I threw to him and he never realized were on his ears!!
What are your perks of colder weather? There can’t be many more… Lol. And don’t tell me that you get to have pumpkin, peppermint, gingerbread, turkey, etc. YOU CAN HAVE THOSE IN WARM WEATHER TOO!!
