Here’s what happens when I train for a race with Team Diabetes: I run hard for 14 weeks or so, and then, when the race is over, I slack off until there’s something else on my calendar – usually a year or more away.
Not this year. This year I trained hard for the Gold Coast Marathon and ran a time I would have been proud of 10 years ago.
I have had a spring filled with a routine of regular running and exercise. (Read more about some gear you need here)
I don’t want to give it up. I want to keep it up. I want the routine to continue.
So I’ve already registered for my next Team Diabetes race, just up the road in Canmore in a few weeks. After giving myself a week’s vacation from the pavement, I’m back into the routine of regular runs. I’m mixing in some epic hikes with my sons, and I’m keeping myself fit.
Exercise, this year, is my summer indulgence.
But there are other treats too. Fridays are reserved for a special craft brew on the patio, and each day after work I let myself have some cheesecake. Sort of.
Eating regular snacks throughout the day keeps me full, and I love me some cheesecake. Fibre 1 Cheesecake Key Lime or Fibre 1 Chocolate Cheesecake Bars are just the ticket to have an indulgent snack, and keep on track.
Fibre 1 Cheesecake Bars have only 150 calories each, along with 20% of daily fibre, and they can be found in the granola bar aisle. Want to kick them up a notch? Take them camping.
This Chocolate Cheesecake Smore is what you need around the campfire. Soft, chewy, sweet .. and so so perfect.
Here’s how you make it:
- Roast marshmallow.
- Put it on a Fibre 1 Chocolate Cheesecake Bar.
- Don’t share with anyone.
And wouldn’t you know it, July 30 is National Cheesecake Day, what a day for a cake walk.
If you’re in the Toronto area, you can participate in the Fibre 1 Cake Walk at 10:10am in Beaches, 11:40am at Union, 12:40pm at Rogers Centre, 2:45pm at Harbourfront, 4:45pm at Trinity Bellwoods, and it wraps up at 6:45pm at Yonge and Dundas!
