I took the day off to take Hannah to the orthopedist to have her wrist looked at — well she is now in an arm cast. I am sure the novelty of it all will wear off in a day or so. It will be a long four weeks for my baby.
Today was a rest day for me and I was more than happy to do it. I am so so sore.. mostly in my quads. I think it may be from rowing since I did a ton of that yesterday. But i will be back at it tomorrow…
Here’s a few interesting articles I have read that I think you should read too:

- Recipe: Sweet Potato Shrimp Cakes with Bacon
- Sweet Potato Shrimp Cakes with Bacon Guacamole on the side
3 sweet potato peeled and grated
8-10 tiger prawns/shrimps peeled
4 free range eggs
1/2 yellow onion chopped
Salt and pepper to taste
2 – 4 tbsp coconut oil for frying
Heat the coconut oil in a skillet on low to medium heat. Mix the sweet potato, eggs, onions and salt and pepper in a bowl. Take a handful of the mixture, form into a pancake then push one large shrimp on the center of the pancake. Fry shrimp face down for about 4 minutes on low to medium heat. Turn the pancake on the other side when the shrimp is cooked. Fry for another 2-3 minutes until it is cooked through.
Because you Can
My back is tight from all the work this past week. Its not hurt, but I can definitely tell I used those back muscles. You can rest assured I will be doing extra mobility to help ease it. But I needed my workout today — so off I went! I’m glad I did. It’s true what they say, it’s hard to be mad at yourself for getting a great workout in.

This is a pic of me and my dad from his recent visit. Looking at it reminds me how fast time is flying for us all. Make sure you stop and smell the roses, reach out to those people that you have strife with, forgive those that you feel have done you wrong because in the end — you become better for it.
I read this post from Seth Godin yesterday: Do the Extra Work and I loved its message. Do the extra work because you can, and it’s what makes you – you, and because you can.
And this post from Chris Kresser about BACON: The Nitrate and Nitrite Myth: Another Reason not to Fear Bacon
Here’s a recipe that sounds Delish:
I placed bacon strips on a paper towel, uncut because the bacon will shrink. You want to make sure that each slice slightly overlaps each other. That way when it cooks, they fuse together to make the shell. I microwaved my bacon for about 3 minutes. You may want to check on it each minute to make sure it is not cooking too fast or is not burning. Once out of the microwave, you fold it over and place something in the middle so it creates the inside of the shell.
After a few minutes, the bacon shell has hardened and you can fill it with your favorite taco stuffing. I only made one to try it out and one was enough. If you love bacon you will love this. It is one of those things you just have to try at least once if you love bacon.
