Beer before workout = death.
So last night, I met up with my friend/flirting coach M. We didn’t do any flirting drills or anything–we just talked about confidence, fears, body issues, figuring out what you want, who you want and well, generally life. The conversation was really uplifting and I felt really positive and great afterwards…though that might’ve been due to the snacks (chicken nachos and a few french fries) and beer.
To take advantage of my positivity, I went straight to the gym–which was a horrible mistake. The beer and junky food paid me back and I ended up with a nasty headache midway through my run. Needless to say, my positive mood quickly switched to something a little more on the cranky side.
Now…as anyone who reads this blog knows, I get a TON of headaches….and since that sucks and ruins my intentions/plans a lot of the time, sometimes I just muscle through and do what I had planned. That is what I did last night–I made cake batter cashew butter for the first time–BIG MISTAKE!
I started processing the cashews and something just wasn’t right, to me, anyway…they never seamed to release the oil and get all soft and buttery….based on research this morning, that is normal–I didn’t know that, and having a headache left me with zero patience, so I blended the bejesus out of it…and I think it sorta burnt as it has a smidge of a funny taste…and well, even before it started to “burn”, well, it never tasted like cake batter. I will try to find a different recipe and give it a try…but this was a pretty but epic fail.
Needless to say, next time I decide to whip up something I have never made before, I am doing it when I am completely healthy.
Oh and speaking of health–I think I am catching a cold–just in time for the weekend. *sigh*
Much luv and happy hump day!
P.S. If anyone can offer up some advice on my epic fail that I call my cashew butter, than please do let me know!
