Speedwork was on my training schedule for this morning. I had no urge what so ever to hop on a treadmill this morning and experience hamster in a ball syndrome so instead I went with an old stand by and busted out my Tennis Court Boot Camp Routine.
My Team in Training Coach had preached one night how suicides (which are essentially short sprints) are great for building up speed, luckily those are the basis for the tennis court boot camp I created. I did my normal 20 minute work out and then repeated this routine 5 times. I ended with some ‘cool down’ alternating lunches across the court and returned to my apartment feeling sweaty and strong.
Yesterday afternoon I had a special delivery from the very generous people over at Turtle Mountain.
Those two large boxes were quite a challenge to get from my office, to my car and into my apartment. I was trying to get Abbie to stand by them to get a scaled picture of size, but she has developed this deathly fear about boxes and would not go within a 10 ft radius of them. lol
With a very sharp knife and tons of frustration on exactly how much tape was used to seal them, I manage to each box open and discover a plethora of goodies in side.
The first box contained some Coconut Milk Yogurts and Coconut Milk.
We all know I am not a fan of Milk (Yuck!) but I have to be honest when I say I have never tried an ‘alternative’ milk source before. I will take the plunge with these and conduct a taste test in the near future to see how they stack up.
The contents of the second box brought a little tear to my eyes.
ICE CREAM!!! Lots and lots of Ice Cream!!
I think I literally have a years supply of Ice Cream in here. I had to cram my freezer full just to get it all in there.
I look forward to test tasting each and every one of these and be sure to give a very thorough review on all of them. Man, sometimes my job can be so tough. 😉
So of course I wanted to start the reviewing process right away and broke into one of the
ice Cream Bars Yogurts to mix with cereal this morning.
Upon first taste the Vanilla flavor reminded me of icing. It was a thin consistency, but very sweet. I wanted to slather it on top of a giant brownie and enjoy. Mmmm… I think I will try that it the next one.
I was not sure how much of the coconut flavoring the expect. It was there, but very faint, almost like a background flavor. The overall flavor was amazing and enhanced the flavors of my cereal perfectly. Really my only complaint with this yogurt was the amount of sugar in the single serving container – 19g – yikes!
With the 1/2 container of Vanilla So Delicious with Coconut Milk Yogurt I had 1/2 cup Missy’s Mix #1, 1/2 cup Kashi Strawberry Fields, 1/4 cup Chocolate is for Lovers Granola, Grapes, and Strawberries.
The mix was wonderful and I can not wait to sample the rest of the Turtle Mountain products… especially all the Ice Cream waiting patiently for me in the fridge!
