I started my morning with a frozen concoction.
Chocolate Covered Raspberry Smoothie
- 1/4 c Stonyfield Vanilla Yogurt
- 1/4 c Silk Vanilla Almond Milk
- Frozen Raspberries
- Scoop of Trader Joe’s Chocolate Whey Protein Powder
- Handful of Spinach
- Heavy dusting of Cocoa Powder
Can it be a Green Monster if it isn’t green?
For lunch I had a toasted whole wheat bagel that I smeared with some Peanut Butter + Pear Butter.
After lunch I was feeling snacky. Even though I packed two separate snacks for some reason I was really craving a Peanut Butter Nature Valley Bar from the vending machine. So I went to go get one and I pressed the wrong button! I ended up with some jerky thing + then I got the granola bar and happily ate both.
[And I had just read Anne’s post on Avoiding Office Junk Food!]
When I was younger things like jerky really freaked me out, but recently I’ve found that I kind of like them. I do feel like there are some things that are just weird to blog about eating and jerky + summer sausage are up there.
What is the strangest food you eat or blog about?
After work Matt + I met up at the soccer fields and squeezed in a quick walk before our Tiny Tot Soccer Game. Our last two games had been rained out, and today was a perfect sunny soccer day. Needless to say, the kids were super excited to play.
After soccer Matt + I ran a few errands and returned home to take to the grill. I ran to the Co-op and picked up some Cod + we threw on the asparagus that we got from the Farmer’s Market last weekend.
Simple and tasty.
After dinner we each enjoyed a serving of this refreshing sorbet that took my taste buds on a vacation! I love chocolate as much as the next person, but sometimes you just need something frozen + fruity.
I had intentions of waking up early yesterday and starting off my day bright + early with a morning Vinyasa class, but I ended up sleeping through my alarm. I changed my plan of attack and ending up deciding to go to the 7:15 class after our Tiny Tot Soccer Game. But as the day went on I was really dreading having to go to yoga.
I’ve only exercised twice since my Triathlon on Saturday and for some reason I was feeling guilty for not being more active this past week. Plus my weekend is booked solid as I have some plans with friends and Ill be teaching a 35 hour Lifeguard Class. But here’s the truth:
- I won’t die if I don’t exercise more than twice a week
- It’s okay to want to spend time with Matt + the dogs after a long day instead of exercising
- I’ll be moving away from Matt + the dogs for 2 months in 2 weeks so it’s okay to want to spend time together
- I can work on fitting in exercise here + there by including push ups, swimming or a quick vinyasa or two
What kind of exercise do you resort to when you only have a few minutes? Any quick exercise tips?
