I spy a wannabe smoothie thief.
Ha! Protected by the straw and lid. Meghann: 1, Maddie: 5,321 <- she wins a lot.
The smoothie was my pre-swim fuel this afternoon.
- frozen cherries
- chocolate whey protein (Whole Foods Brand)
- chia seeds
- Kashi Cinnamon Go Lean Crisp (on top)
In typical green smoothie fashion, it looked awful, but tasted delicious. Seriously delicious. Can I have another?
I had the smoothie on my way out the door to meet my new swim-mates for practice. I arrived at the pool at 6:00pm on the dot (the time we’re supposed to meet at), but that was still late for these hardcore triathletes. I walked up just as the majority of them were finishing their warm-ups. Oops.
I put my swim cap on and joined them in the water. As always, the swim was great. Our coach shortened my workouts a tad since I’m a bit on the slower side (ain’t no shame in being on the slower side), but I was still able to cover roughly 2000+ yards during our hour workout. We did some pulloy workouts with paddles (which killed my arms), then did some sprints with the kickboard (which killed my legs). I left feeling like jello. I love that feeling.
There was talk tonight about competing in some upcoming triathlons that definitely caught my attention. After I wrap up Flying Pig this weekend, triathlon season is sooo on. Will I be up got a spring tri the last weekend of May?! hmmm…. maybe.
After my swim, I made a fajita inspired salad for dinner.
I cut some steak in strips and cooked it in a frying pan with onion, peppers, and a seasoning mix of chili powder, cumin, salt, and pepper.
The steak went on a bed of spinach, broccoli, tomato, and corn, then topped with salsa and cheese.
The salad was really good. It’s hard to go wrong with anything with a fajita theme though.
I had a serving of ice cream for dessert.
The sweet tooth is now satisfied.
Time to call it a day.
