Greatest Saturday

Yesterday was awesome!

I ended up making Matt’s Muffins on Friday night (and tried one to make sure they were edible for Saturday morning), only with lots of modifications:

  • 2 cups whole wheat flour (I don’t have any all purpose)
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar (had no white)
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup low-fat buttermilk
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce (no canola oil in me casa)
  • 1 egg
  • 3 really ripe bananas, mashed (well, only one of them was really ripe)
  • 074

    There’s nothing wrong with his recipe, I just went with what I already had at home so I wouldn’t have to buy that much. They are slightly on the bland side but very dense and thick and perfect with a little peanut butter spread on. I think next time I might add some honey and maybe chocolate chips ;-)

    077

    That led to this…

    078

    I don’t have an “official” time yet but here is the time I got when I crossed the finish line! WOW :)

    If this counted, here’s what my stats would be:

    Time: 29:27

    Distance: 3.1 miles

    Pace: 9:30/mile

    Edit – Found the results, they have me at 29:28, so that’s pretty close. I still can’t believe I broke the 30 minute and beat my PR!

    I’m not going to lie…it was a tough race and if it weren’t for my friend pushing me, I might not have done that well. But I still did it and I’ll take it! I can’t wait to start working on my speed and training for the next 5K coming up in June! I love running short distances, I’m not sore at all today!

    (I’m actually more sore from a pilates class I took on Friday, it was awesome.)

    After the race, I went to Barnes and Noble to use a gift card I got for my birthday! I ended up picking up a tall decaf latte from the cafe while I was there. I’ve gotten to where after races, I don’t want to eat anything, but a nice beverage from Starbucks is always good :) I purchased a cookbook called “Vegan Planet” that has some really great recipes in it that I can’t wait to make and share with you guys.

    Then I went home and took a shower to get ready for Abbey Road on the River, a ginormous Beatles festival that we have here every Memorial Day weekend. Its so much fun, lots of live music, food, exhibits and t-shirt booths. Not to mention the ice cream (aka frozen custard):

    099

    My friend Beth’s ice cream looked pretty good too! Mmm, sprinkles…

    It was a beautiful day…warm, plenty of sunshine, it just doesn’t get much better. Here’s a pic of our favorite dancing lady, this woman goes non-stop all day long, all weekend long. I’d love to know how many calories she burns!

    095

    After that, I went back home to take another shower (got a bit sweaty!) and then we headed to Buffalo Wild Wings for the UFC pay per view. I got the veggie burger with fries, it was glorious. I think I had sun stroke though, haha, just kidding.

    I’m so glad Matt Hughes won against Matt Serra and even though there’s has been an exciting rivalry, I was glad to see them hugging and shaking hands afterwards, I hope its over now. I’m one of those people that likes to see others make up, haha.

    Rashad Evans got knocked out and while I have nothing against him, it was sort of nice to have the guy who has taken out two of my favorite fighters get a loss. But it was a great fight to watch, that’s for sure. The rest of the PPV was boring except for the two matches I mentioned.

    Hi my name is Sarah and I love the UFC.

    It was a great (if not the greatest) Saturday, I have plans for a great (uneventful and relaxing) Sunday and then we still have one more day off?! Woo hoo!

    Hope you all are enjoying the weekend :) Be back soon.

      Beth’s icecream was so pretty. I liked it when Aleta stole some of her sprinkles with her own ice cream cone, lol.
