I’ve missed you. A lot. I wasn’t sure where you went but it doesn’t matter now. You are back. Don’t leave me again.
Listening to my friend Gary talk about all the fabulous smoothies he’s been making, then reading my friend Casey’s blog and all about the green smoothie challenge, I got to tossing around the idea of bringing them back into my life. I’ve got the Vita-mix, I’ve got the ingredients, I just need to get moving quicker, so that it doesn’t become my lunch…
So today was the day. It was the slowest, most pitiful run since the beginning. Maybe because I have run 5 out of the last 7 days? Maybe because I’ve put on almost 27 miles on these shoes in the last 7 days??? Or maybe it was last nights dinner, sitting like fried food tends to do…. Maybe I need to start fueling, better, prior to working out…..
So a fresh start after that pitiful run.
1/2 of a beautiful Bosc pear
1/2 cup of our wonderful *Up North* frozen blueberries
1/2 scoop of protein powder, unflavored
a splash of almond milk, original
a double handful and then some of fresh spinach
a stalk of celery
a chunk of cucumber
a healthy sprinkling of cinnamon
a few almonds and
some flax seed for Omega 3 and fiber.
Heaven on Earth. I feel reenergized. And all is well with the world.
