No Running 4 You FU!

I'm sad to report I wasn't able to run last week due to a FU't pain!

If you look hard enough...
My right ankle (left in FUto) is swollen.

My FU't remained as such FU 6 days! (A real bummer!)

Instead of toughing it out (which would have been FU'in stupid on my part)...

I took the time off to ensure it healed!

So until then...

There was No Running 4 FU!

I ended up replacing my runs with more:

Spinning and Elliptical training! (But I made sure to listen to my Running Mix FU good measure!)

That said...

I'm hoping my run(s) this week won't cause this pain to come back! (I'll keep you posted!)

Moving on...

Throughout the week...

I had my FUel of Blueberry Protein Pancakes!

I made sure to wake up extra early so that I could
sit down and eat my breakFUst beFUre heading off to work!
Blend:
6 Egg Whites, 1/2 Cup Oatmeal, HandFUl of Blueberries and
Vanilla Stevia.

I was also excited because I got to open a new bag of coffee! (I've never tried this brand or blend!)

Mellow Mornings.
Have you ever tried it?! If not, it's good!
Even Oprah approves it!
(If that makes any difFUrence lol)

The Mellow blend made FU creative nights! 

Stuffed Chicken Breast...
Sundried Tomato Pesto, Goat Cheese and Spinach
Wrapped in Foil.
And placed on the BBQ...
Mid way through  I decided to take it out of the foil.
I'd suggest you leave in. Bad decision on my end.
Trial and error :)
BBQ'd Dill Salmon Steak (click)...
On a bed of Spinach, Blueberries, SunFUlower Seeds and
Homemade Balsamic Vinaigrette. 

While I do enjoy having FUn in the kitchen...

We had the pleasure of celebrating 007's Birthday mid-week!

I had to get her this card.
I mean it had a FUn poster included!
But...
This was deFUnitely the selling point FU me!

I also couldn't help but buy her this Cake Shaped Bag!

I mean common!
How could I pass this up?!

I made sure to fill it with some goodies...

She got me hooked on Sea Salt Dark Chocolate.

BeFUre heading out to dinner...

I had myself a piece of Cake!

It had a paper like texture to it.
I wouldn't recommend you try it.

Upon arrival to one of 007 FUvorite Restaurants (Ging Sing)...

She wanted to immediately open her 'cadeaux'!

Oohhhh...
Ahhhh!
She hated it.

She opened the card last...

007...Get it right ;)
She didn't think it was FUnny.

When it came time to order...

I helped Martin with the FU'd selections....

I learned my ordering skills from The Masta!

We then patiently waited FU our Noms over tea...

What's Chinese FU'd without Tea?!

Both 007 and I started with Hot and Sour Soup!

Yum!

Where we then shared the Shrimp Vermicelli Rolls with a side of....

Spicy Peanut Butter FU dipping!
Droooooooool.

BeFUre we knew it...

All of our main courses had arrived!

Hunan Beef, Lemon Grass Chicken, FUried Rice 
Salmon with Black Bean Sauce.

Everyone was having a delicious time!

Including Lili who's usually a picky eater! :)
Martin and Max lovin' their FUvorite Dishes!
And SuperFit who was simply happy because he now knew
how to use chopsticks!
(Without having me tie them up with an elastic! lol)

FU dessert we had FUrtune Cookies!

Who doesn't like reading their 'sweet' FUrtune?!

I felt lucky because...

I didn't get 1 but  FUrtunes in my Cookie!!! 

They were all the same...
But I took it as a sign considering it had the word 'RUN' in it!

We ended off our evening with...

A FUmily FUto!

Muaahhh!

But let's get real...

We are nothing close to 'normal'! (I'm not kidding)

Much better!

FU the remainder of the week...

I enjoyed my weekly Skinny Vanilla Latte!

They ran out of the sugar-FUree Vanilla so I opted FU the
Sugar-FUree Caramel instead.

I also had to say 'no' to a big Chocolate Chip Cookie FU the taking in the ofFUce kitchen!

"Eat me Baby FU. Eaaaaattttt Mmmmmmeee!"

I resisted the cookie because something else was calling my name!

Yes, the red pepper has made a comeback!
I had it with 2 slices of Allegro Cheese.

By the time lunch came around...

It was gone! 

So I had nothing but leftovers waiting to be eaten!

Stir FUried Chicken, Spinach and Red Peppers seasoned with
Salt and Pepper.
Nom.

Come the long weekend...

I was looking FUward to our Bike 4 Sushi Ride!

As you can see...
I was pretty pooped b4 we even began!
I "sucked it up like a princess" (as SuperFit would say) and
Rode 40km!

Questions FU you...

1. Your FUvorite coffee?
2. Your FUvorite type of cuisine?
3. Have you ever had swollen ankles due to running?!

  1. I have an unrefined coffee palate, can't tell the difference.
    Learning to love sushi
    No swollen ankles, but had nasty shin splints my first running season and spent a couple months biking instead waiting to heal.

  2. I learned to love sushi. It took me a couple of years before I opened up to the idea. Now, I can't get enough!
    Running pains...I've now joined the club ;)

  3. I love anything with vanilla and snickerdoodle when it comes to coffee. Running, yes I am recovering from an Achillis Tendon issue, elliptical and cycle are the way to go until your pain goes away!
