Great Sunday

by Lori and Michelle on September 28, 2009

Hello everyone,

It is L here. I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. I got to relax a little bit on Sunday night. But back to work bright and early this morning. I’ve got a few big orders to get done before I head out of town for a few days to go visit Michelle in Oklahoma to attend the Live and Learn event there at 105 degrees.

September flew by me which is a good thing I think. :/ I was so nervous of being here alone doing all the business orders, etc. by myself for a whole month. My mom was even going to fly here to help me if I needed it. Though, thankfully I was able to get everything done! Big pat on the back for me! It is so nice to just sit down and reflect on everything that I have accomplished this month. It really makes me so proud and happy. :)

What did you accomplish this month that makes you proud?

My Sunday workout as I mentioned here –  I was not sure what I was planning to do at the gym. I ended up do a mix of things. Some walking uphill and running. I really wanted to just enjoy my music and my workout. I really was not trying to push myself yesterday but just enjoy it.


  • 10 minutes walking at 3.6 mph incline 3% – increased incline every 2 minutes
  • 30 minutes of 6:2 run/walk work.
  • 20 minutes walking uphill at 3.9 mph incline 4% – increased incline about every 4-5 minutes.
  • 2 minute cool down.

My workout out was nice and steady. I felt my heart-rate just where I wanted it at the fat-burning zone. If you all remember Michelle and I discussed the benefits of walking here. My uphill work yesterday really burned out the butt and hamstrings! :)

Post-workout juice: celery, carrots, pear, cucumber, asparagus, and ginger

My late lunch was a simple hemp protein smoothie:

coconut water, hemp protein, maca, vanilla bean, yacon syurp, sun is shining and bee pollen

Than I headed to the store to get a few things that I needed for the week while sipping on this

Dinner was a huge kale salad topped with red onions, avocado, dulse flakes, nutritional yeast, lime juice and apple cider vinegar – plus some pumpkin sunflower seeds kale chips.

We decided to move our dinner outside on the porch since it was so beautiful outside. So here is my complete meal – wine included.

It was a great evening with great food and great company. Well until a bug bit me not only once but twice. :( I hate that when it happens. I saved some room for dessert which was some cinnamon macaroons and lemon cookies that I made last week. Sorry forgot to take a picture, it was late when I ate them.

Twin Question: How do you like to end your Sundays? Do you have a ritual or do anything special?

I typically try to have a nice meal and typically a glass of wine to end my long week. Than also check my calender for the week ahead to see what I have to get done or look forward to. :)

Till next time,


The Raw Twins
