“A cloudy day is no match for a sunny disposition,” William Arthur Ward
After waking up to a big ol’ plate of oat cakes, walnuts and bananas, I was craving a good sweaty workout. For some reason or another, I wasn’t all that interested in running. But biking just sounded like fun so I headed out for a casual ride that turned into a 18-mile workout. As much as I love running, it’s fun to mix things up once in a while too! I passed through farms, fields, dirt roads, and more farms. It was absolutely beautiful. Next time I’m packing my camera with me.
Anyways, on to my fuel…milk is a great post-workout recovery drink. Not only is it super refreshing (and tasty,) but the balance of carbohydrates and protein is ideal too! And I also love that it’s not too heavy on the stomach. Whenever I finish a sweaty workout, I’m usually not too hungry right away—but I know I need to eat something! That’s exactly how I felt today…but a Green Monster sounded just right.
In the mix:
- 1 c. soymilk
- 3 c. spinach (you can’t taste it, I swear…give it a try sometime )
- 1 c. ice cubes
- 1 chocolate Amazing Grass Kids Packet (because even adults can be kids at heart…;)…and its super tasty too)
Hanging out with this girl always guarentees a great day. We went to Panera for lunch, along with two other friends. I ordered my usual—Mediterranean Sandwich on whole grain bread with black bean soup, an apple, and an iced nonfat lattte (I’m so predictable!! ) I can’t wait to hang out again soon, Nicole!! Maybe next weekend?
My dad brought home these cafetaria trays a while back, when his workplace was getting rid of them. At first they never saw any use…now we take them outside all the time. I felt like I was back in my freshman year of college, eating in the caf’. Only the food is much tastier now…hehe.
I finished the day off on a sweet note. I scooped the last of the homemade vanilla puddin’ into a bowl, poured in the rest of the hardened homemade chocolate frosting (which tasted like fudge) and topped it all with 1/2 a graham cracker. Heaven on a spoon.
Tomorrow I’m bringing Dad for his surprise father’s day gift and I’m so excited. It’s gonna be fun.
Hope you all are having a great weekend so far!!
