Challenge Day 6
I arrived home safely from Portland late last night and was greeted by the bitter Canadian cold. My hubby was up at 6:30... and so was I. Adjusting to a time change is always a little rough. I'll be taking extra special care of myself today by loading up on veggies and soothing teas.
I am visiting Franca today to get all prepped for the Arnold. We leave Thursday!! We're taking a bus to Columbus, Ohio because every other year we've been faced with major airport delays and canceled flights due to nasty weather.
I've included a few more pics from my Portland experience. The first one is at Bob's Red Mill - an Oregon classic. Do you have these products in your grocery store? I use their grains all the time. This weekend my daughter and I made their gluten-free pancakes and their gluten-free bread. Delicious!! Check them out if you haven't tried them yet. My daughter and I also had a delicious meal at Andina, a Peruvian restuarant.
P.S. For those of you who are joining me on this Cooler 1 quest, I hope you enjoying yourselves and taking care of yourself, too. Listen to your body and give it what it needs. You'll notice Cooler 1 is very challenging... this is exactly why it is NOT to be used for longer than 1-2 weeks at a time. It's hard on your body. If you don't feel you can do it than stop.
