After my too fresh breakfast yesterday, I was in a tropical mood. And what better way to satisfy than by whipping up a yummy smoothie?
Well I guess I could have packed up and sailed off to the Bahamas, but I didn't quite have the time for it. This Cherry-Banana smoothie hit the spot though! In the mix:
- 1 banana
- 1/2 cup frozen cherries
- 1/2 cup almond milk
- 1 TBSP chia seeds
- 1 tsp spirulina
- 1/2 scoop protein
Steamed Buddhist Delight. A mix of veggies and tofu with a side of brown sauce. The only thing that would make it better would be brown rice. But sadly, no place around me even offers it. Oh well, I just shove it all on my father!
Duhlicious. I inhaled this bad boy. It never stood a chance. After my run, I came home famished again so I decided to try working on a new dessert. Chocolate loaded greek yogurt! It was pretty good, but it still needs a few tweaks. I so *heart* greek yogurt.
I'd like to take this opportunity to introduce you to someone very special to me.
My garden! This little beauty is going to soon be supplying me with some awesome veggies. Since I had the day off, I went over to weed. Which is way more of a workout than I would have though, by the way. This is my first year having a garden and I cannot believe how fast weeds grow! Why is it that people have to spend so much money and hay trying to grow grass in their lawns, yet where I don't want grass, it grows nonstop? Figures.
Here's a little pepper growing strong! I'm not big on peppers to be honest, but my uncle sure loves them. His hot pepper jelly? Oh, you already know it's good.
And here is some gorge kale. I'm not exactly sure what I'm gonna do with so much kale (I retardedly bought six of them), but I'm sure whatever I figure out will be delicious! I've also planted a whole slew of other veggies, like lilac eggplant, zucchini, cucumber, spinach, broccoli, lettuce and even some cantaloupes! Expect more pictures soon.
Yesterday was also my day for a short, three mile run. As most of you know, I'm currently training for my first half marathon in September. I started off following the Hal Higdon program, but I decided after hearing that a lot of you bloggies change up your schedules, I could too! However now I'm starting to wonder if it was Hal at all - maybe it was just me?
Even after switching up my schedule, I'm still feeling lethargic during runs. And I can't understand why? Instead of looking forward to my long runs like I normally do, I'm counting down the minutes till they're over. I hate it. I'm hoping that if I just keep running, I can essentially run through it. Runners out there, has this ever happened to you? And if it has, what did you do to fix it?
I need some help here people! I'm sure you guys won't let me down - have a great day loves (:
