Healthy One Ingredient Homemade Ice Cream

Although I absolutely adore baking, I really am more of an ice cream than cake or cupcake lover.  When I was a kid, I would sneak bowls (yes…multiple) of strawberry ice cream for breakfast in the summers.  Hey–it had strawberries in it–so that counted for breakfast, right?

I don’t ever really buy ice cream when we go food shopping because I have no self-control and will eat the entire thing in a few days (or a sitting).  We usually treat ice cream as a fun way to get out of the apartment and go for a walk.

However, there are times that I want my favorite dessert and not to feel so guilty about it.  I was browsing around one day and stumbled upon The Kitchn’s one ingredient ice cream, tried making it, and fell in love (sorry Dave!).

Pan-Mass Challenge Charity Events with Kick it By Eliza and BTone Fitness

In case you couldn’t tell, I am riding in the Pan-Mass Challenge this year!  I attempted it 2 years ago but only was able to fundraise not ride.   Short version–unfortunately I was born with a twisted intestine (and had no idea) and the weekend before I was in intense pain and had to go into the ER.  They operated on me that weekend and I had to miss out on the Pan-Mass.  Read more about my story here!

After being emotionally exhausted from doing all the fundraising but not being able to experience the ride while also studying for my Professional Engineering exam, I decided I needed to to take 2014 off from attempting the PMC again.  But once 2015 rolled around, I knew it was time.  It also was my (now former) company’s 10th year of riding and they were trying to get 10 riders for the team.

I’m Going to Take Fewer Classes

I mentioned a month ago how I was getting into minimalist running.  I have been running pretty consistently for about 30 minutes each time I run.  My calves have been doing better and my pace has been improving slightly each time.

The last time I went to my PT at the Spaulding National Running Center for a check-in, he said I could start to increase my distance, run two days in a row and include speed work.  This would of course all be in moderation and not all at once.  For example, if I did a longer run I wouldn’t do speed work and I’d run speed work on a shorter run day.

This news was bittersweet.
