Oh, man. Is it Friday, already?
I was sitting with the girls in Courtney’s living room last night thinking about how it felt like i had just seen them the day before at Bern’s, when really it was 4 days before. Then it hit me that another weekend was almost here and it’s just crazy how fast this week flew by. The pace is picking up around here and I’d really like it to slow down, please. I have too many things coming up on the calendar that I still need to prepare for. Can we just add another 5 hours to each day? mmmkay?
I cleared my head this morning with a quick 4 mile run around the block. Since my marathon I’ve been keeping all my runs relatively low mileage and easy paced. I have to admit that I’ve been enjoying this approach to running. It’s pretty relaxing and a nice break from training. I’ll need to start picking up the workouts again soon, but for now I’ll just enjoy the ride.
A post-run smoothie helped cool me down.
Mango Peanut Butter Smoothie
- 1 fresh mango chopped
- 1 cup ice
- 1 cup milk
- 1 teaspoon chia seeds
- 1 tablespoon ground flax seed
- 1.5 tablespoons peanut butter
- 1/4 cup rolled oats
Place all the ingredients in a blender and blend until desired consistency.
It’s getting HOT outside and I find myself craving smoothies more and more. The mango peanut butter smoothie was perfect. The mango gave it some natural sweetness while the peanut butter and rolled oats gave it a nutty, thicker consistency. I was a fan.
With the smoothie I had a chocolate vitatop muffin with a smear of peanut butter and almonds for a little crunch.
A great Friday breakfast.
Some posts worth reading!
Loved the honesty from Julie here. It’s so easy to get caught up in workout trends and *think* it’s what we should be doing, but the truth is that if a workout is causing you anxiety or making you feel bad for yourself, then maybe that isn’t the workout for you. Workouts should be fun and exciting, NOT depressing.
Tear jerker. Big one. It’s always exciting to hear a friend who has been struggling with infertility for so long, finally got to see that second line appear.
I updated the wedding page yesterday! Check out the comments of this post – lots of great discussions going on in regards to changing and not changing your last name after marriage.
Starbucks Gold Card Thief
If someone stole your wallet/ purse what’s the one thing you would be the most upset about?
Ochocinco’s wallet was stolen from his car earlier this week and apparently his main concern was his gold Starbucks card. Watch the clip.
I’ll admit, if my wallet was stolen I’d be pretty upset about losing the gold card too. As Ochocino so delicately put it – do you know how many coffees I had to drink to earn that?! hehe
It should be noted that the wallet was eventually located (thanks to the help of twitter!), but the Gold Card was still missing. Bummer.
