Smart Stick Green Monster

The past couple of days I have had a HUGE craving for green smoothies (even with the snow. I know…strange..)

I have even made a few before, mostly with frozen blueberries

I now made something different

This time I used the smart stick!

Question for you:

What is something you ate today?

Do you have a favorite food right now?

Time for some energy

Holy Moly. What a day. I had a bit of a revelation.

Yesterday, I had a sugar overload. I could NOT stop eating candy at work, and then I had the crash. Then I felt bad. Then I cried myself to sleep. Ok. I didn’t do that, but it made me realize something. I want to eat foods that give me ENERGY!

sugar

When I got up today, my goal was to eat healthy, not have the afternoon crash, and not get cranky with Andrew

Breakfast: 2 eggs, sausage, and paleo pancakes

Then I went crazy. Laundry, dishes, cleaned the kitchen and bathroom, and workout class at the gym. ALL BEFORE NOON!

The rest of the day, before I ate something, I said “Is this going to give me energy? or no?”

I went shopping, and made a green smoothie and brought snacks for the trip haha

Tiffany introduced me to these before the half marathon last year. You can find the recipe here 🙂

Question for you:

What is your favorite on the go snacks?

Random Tuesday

I have a lot of random things to share with you!

The bathroom walls are finally up in the bathroom!

I went to Grant’s Farm w/ my sister in law and nephew. We first fed the goats, which jump on you to get the milk

My favorite, the parrots

My nephew liked the elephants

I had a special note from Andrew on the way to the grocery store

Yummy green monster (frozen blueberries, spinach, milk, protein powder)

And my goofy guy talking while I took his picture 🙂

 

Question for you:

What is one random thing you did today?

Flu + running kicks

Good news: The little dude is feeling better, no fever, and even made it to school!

Bad news: My mom now has the FLU!!!!!

No joke. I swear, don’t come w/ in 100 miles of St Louis.

Today, I ran to get my mom’s prescription, get her zup, ice cream, popsicles, italian ice, and pudding. She looks pretty rough, so I made sure to keep my distance. And Andrew isn’t allowed over there, because he will get it even if he looks at her haha. But they will be together soon

 

Breakfast was quick and easy. Half a banana and PB, I didn’t want a full belly because I was taking my running kicks to the outdoors!!! It was in the 60s here! AMAZING!

The run was not. Apparently I was thinking it was Spring time and I didn’t bring water w/ me and the park turns the water off in the winter. (damn them) But I still finished 4 miles, while dragging my behind back to my car!

Lunch was amazing! Pizza (I ate the side w/ corn for lunch. And apples for dinner)

Moments after lunch, my sweet tooth hit. But I didn’t have much to choose from. Then I saw the dates- YUM! While watching Ellen

After getting Andrew from school, we both made some smoothies.

Mine: frozen blueberries, spinach, vanilla protein powder, yogurt, milk, and ice.

I also had a bagel thin w/ banana and PB. THen we went and played some b-ball.

After dinner, and putting the little guy to bed. Had some new carrot cake!

This is a Paleo recipe, but I promise you it is good. And I wasn’t starving for more. I had one piece, and that was all I needed!

Question for you:

Do you realize the difference between running on a treadmill vs. outside?

(or is it just me haha)

Poison

Today was another blah day, but I made it through.

Before taking the WONDERFUL long and painful CPR class at work, I ate my fav egg sandwich w/ PB and banana.

Then finally home to hang out with my little dude. Of course that was cut short, because we had to take my dog riley to the vet

tired from a run

It wasnt a big deal, but he has been itching like crazy and his skin is BRIGHT red. We think he has allergies.

He was nervous while we were there, stayed RIGHT by me and yelped when the vet came in
Sorry its blurry, he was moving around like crazy!
At least we did have some nice wall paper to look at….

And of course this lil fellow came along

then it was time for some poison.

Ok not really. Just a green smoothie. I wasn’t really hungry for dinner, but I wanted something smooth and cool.

LIKE ICE CREAM?? well considering I didnt work out (besides playing some bball in the front yard)

I knew I needed to eat something healthy. I do want to be in the 180s this week!!

I am only 1/2 way through! Ive been listening to some rockin’ music

The website I have been using is groovesharp.com. YOU. NEED. TO. CHECK. IT. OUT. Its awesome

I just made a country playlist. Im having one of THOSE days haha

SPEAKINNNG of songs.

I was told to listen to this song by my ex. That this is how he feels about me

Never be the same by REd

sorry I wish I could put the video up here, but I dont know how 😦

(rewind) We have been talking recently about how we still feel for each other. Nothing has happened. I think we are both just trying to talk and figure out whats going on, before doing anything.

Anyway, we are suppose to get together and talk. but I told him that he can decide when and where…..that was this morning (still no time or day) and Im getting antsy already haha

Andddddd Ive listened to this song about a million times

Question for you:

1.) Do you have a song that means a lot to you?

2.) have you eaten something that doesnt look too good, but turns out awesome!

10 miles and pinwheel pizza

Today started off late. I didnt get up till after 9! I havent done that in a while.

Breakfast was quick and easy, because I wanted to get on my bike!

After my new favorite breakfast, I was ready to ride!

THe ten mile ride was a little rough, but that is because my bike tire was a little flat.. 😦

When I got home, a quick spinach smoothie was made and it was off to the pool

what do you think of my new swim suit top?? its from target (yes. I should be banned from that place haha)

After laying at the pool with my neighbor, it was time to get home for a shower and to eat lunch!

pinwheel PIZZZAAAAA!

AFter helping her scrapbook for several hours, it was home to get some more grub. A slice of cheese pizza went undocumented (my bad) But I was pretty satisfied with it.

I gave in to my sweet tooth with a chocolate pudding with pecans and fiber one cereal. WHich my nephew was eyeing……..

He’s lucky I didnt have sprinkles in there, otherwise I wouldnt have shared haha
