I'm a San Francisco city girl who loves to cook and enjoy the outdoors. My cooking style focuses on healthy recipes, but I have a huge sweet tooth that I am constantly fighting! When I'm not cooking/eating/photographing/writing about food, I'm at the hospital full-time or running. I'm addicted to blogging about food - www.mysanfranciscokitchen.com

SOMEONE decided to sign up for a triathlon happening in a few months… No, not me, actually! It was my husband. I decided to sit this one out and cheer him on. I am, however, training with him. That counts for something, right? We’ve been really good so far, but it’s still early. This morning we woke up at 6 am to go swimming before the work day started and it wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be! If only I could maintain this routine of working out early in the morning. It’s easier this time of year, too, because the days are longer.

I just love how much natural light we have this time of year. Our workouts have been alternating between running, biking, swimming, and home weight training (this is actually the worse one for me – oucchh!) I find that the more I workout, the more my body craves it. I have actually been feeling bad if I don’t workout for more than 2 days.

Along with the training, I have been thinking of post-workout meals and drinks. My new favorite right now is this peanut butter banana shake, which tastes like a yummy milkshake, so even though it’s packed with protein, it’s almost like having dessert after working out! Peanut butter and bananas are such a match made in heaven, don’t you think?
