No excuses - home and back at it!




Well, that's a wrap from the Oakley Women ambassadors, Shawn Parkin and Sweat Pants media. Photos, how-to videos, product reviews, recipes and so much more all accomplished in two days. 


Thank you Oakley Women for another amazing experience to share my knowledge on nutrition and triathlons. There's nothing more motivating and inspiring than being around so many fitness enthusiastic, passionate, hard working and motivated women. 

With a few upcoming exciting months ahead for Trimarni Coaching and Nutrition, I was ready to get home on Wednesday (1/22) to get back to the normal routine. 

                                                         

4:45am West Coast wake-up call. 
4:00pm East Coast arrival
5:45-7:15pm swim practice with Karel at UNF
3700 yards
Main set:
8 x 150's on 2:45 (middle 50 fast)



8:30pm - reunite with my furry BFF and enjoy a warm bowl of soup with Karel. 


1 can tomato basil soup + 1 can water in large pot
Add 1/2 bag edamame (out of the pod)
1/2 package mushrooms (chopped and washed)
2 large handfuls kale

After cooking covered for ~20 minutes on low-med heat (stirring at 10 minutes to combine) pour your portion into your soup bowl and top with 1 tbsp nutritional yeast and a pinch of shredded cheese. 
YUM!
I missed my kitchen!!
