Hi everyone! You wouldn’t believe the gorgeous weather that decided to grace us with her (?) presence today. The minute I saw the sunshine peaking in through my blinds I knew it was going to be a great day.
I started off my day with a 3.5 mile treadmill run. In the past week or so, my workouts were put on the back burner due to work/moving priorities, so this run was a perfect way to start the week. I plan to start tomorrow with Jillian Michael’s Yoga Meltdown DVD as I desperately need some good stretching and muscle work. Rise and shine (with some sweat)! 😛
After showering, eating, and getting ready, I headed out to do some grocery shopping. I picked up some of the usuals (fruit, veggies, dairy) and a few other things I’ve been wanting to try…
I got home, put away my groceries, and quickly pulled out my Ninja blender. Why would I do something like that? To make my very first GREEN MONSTER, that’s why!!!! Here’s what went into the mix – 3/4-1 cup of coconut water, a handful of frozen mangoes, a handful of frozen blueberries, 5 large strawberries, a banana, and 2 handfuls of spinach. To be honest, I was pretty skeptical and unsure about this concoction, but I trusted the opinion of my fellow bloggers and decided to keep an open mind. I’m glad I did because this drink was delicious! I really couldn’t taste the spinach at all. Can’t wait to experiment with other flavor combinations!
What’s your favorite green monster/smoothie combination?!
Around 7 pm, I had this strange urge for Taco Bell. Since I’m trying to do away with all fast food (unless there is absolutely nothing else to eat), TB wasn’t really an option, but I did have all the necessary ingredients to make some healthified (is that even a word?!) nachos. The base of my nachos consisted of Trader Joe’s Blue Corn tortilla chips. Next came Trader Joe’s Fat Free Refried Beans thinned out with a little bit of water. I topped off my nachos with some salsa, reduced fat sharp cheddar, and a sprinkle of goat cheese. YUM-O!!!
I hope you were able to enjoy your Sunday and any good weather that may have shown its face! I’m off to prepare for tomorrow and the week ahead…
