Wow, today was a really great day! I’m so glad I’m out of the funk I was in last week. I am ENERGIZED and feeling awesome.
This morning I was up at 7 and had to use up some of that kale I bought at the farmers’ market. What better way than to use it in a smoothie for breakfast!
Yes, this was a delicious smoothie:
What’s that you say? The color offends you? Good thing I didn’t make it for YOU. In the mix was a banana, some almond butter, kale, almond milk, hemp protein powder and flax seed. Yum!
On the side was some toast with peach-apricot jam from the farmers’ market:
Class was fine today and I had a pretty tasty lunch as well:
Chickpea salad thrown together at the last minute:
And plenty of fresh fruit! And a carrot I didn’t actually eat…
And almonds packed as a snack:
After lunch was lab, which I was dreading, but once it was over, I was SO HAPPY. No lab until next Monday! And the weather today was beautiful! I was so energized and ready for my workout.
Today I did weights and then a run, which wasn’t planned but I just couldn’t let the beautiful weather pass me by.
In case you were wondering, doing squats and then running up a huge hill does not feel good on your butt!
Dinner tonight was really delicious! And basically hand-delivered from summer herself. YES. It was amazing.
Barbecue tofu! I bought the KC Masterpiece Spicy Sauce and I really like it! So much better than their original sweet stuff.
On the side, green beans from the farmers’ market!
Tossed with butter and salt. YUM. And some corn on the cob.
And of course, a baked tater! With garlic, butter and yogurt. Perfection.
Right now Allen and I are in the process of making chocolate-peanut butter popcorn to snack on while we watch Under the Dome! Can’t wait!
