Good glorious Monday morning to you!
I kicked my week off with a lovely morning Mom walk, followed by an invigorating 3 mile run! It’s supposed to rain off and on today, and I wanted to make sure I got some cardio in, so after saying goodbye to my Mom I took off around the neighborhood!
The humidity level was insane – 75% or something crazy like that – and even a freezing cold shower couldn’t cool me off! You know those summer mornings when you’re running around, have the hair dryer blasting and the straightening iron on – and you just CAN’T stop sweating? That was me today. Dying!! I’m so jealous of men who can just shower, dress & go!
Luckily I had a fan to help cool me off, as well as a luscious, COLD, thick and frosty Peanut Butter & Banana Protein Smoothie!
In the mix:
1 frozen banana
1 cup skim milk (still out of almond milk!)
1/2 scoop vanilla whey protein powder
1 Tablespoon peanut butter
(look who’s almost empty!!!)
Blend, blend, blend!
I could literally feel my body temperature slowly dropping back down to normal as I had this…ahhhh…feeeelt soooo niiiiice.
Plus, with the protein from the whey powder and protein + fat from the peanut butter, this should keep me feeling full for hours.
Sorry Cyclones, you know I love ya’, but my heart belongs to the black & gold (and purple & gold!)
In other news, I never made it to the grocery store yesterday, which meant it was slim pickins’ when I went to pack a lunch last night. Therefore I shall be visiting my work’s cafeteria this afternoon! They’ve got great, fresh options like soups, salads and a nice sandwich bar. We shall see what I come up with…
Have a wonderful Monday!!
Do you usually pack or buy your lunch?
You know me, I’m generally a packer!!
Do you have to add ice to your smoothies?
This is a debate my Dad and I are having right now. I don’t. He does. He thinks smoothies are too smooth without ice. Too smooth? It’s a smoothie!!
