This morning I got up and headed out for my run… It was a little rough. I’ve been slacking on the stretching and boy could I notice. I ran about 3 miles and had to walk the fourth. I can guarantee I’ll be doing some of this later.
I came home sweaty as ever and wanted something nice and cold! I pulled out our new blender to make a smoothie bowl. I must’ve not put the blender together correctly because as soon as I pressed the blend button…I had a big mess.
I ended up figuring it out and gave it another shot.
Strawberry Cake Batter Smoothie Bowl: 1 1/4 cup almond milk, 1 frozen banana, 1 scoop cake batter protein, 5 fresh strawberries, 2 pinches of xanthan gum (for thickness)
This one looks prettier than the first anyways
Summer to Do List
This morning I was thinking about how fast this year has gone by (especially Summer) and decided to jot down a quick list of things I want to accomplish before Summer is over.
1.) Find a job preferably as an Event or Wedding Planner in NYC – my dream
2.) Make new friends – Since I just moved to a city where I only know my boyfriend and his guy friends I’m going to need a little girl time here and there too!
3.) Have a picnic in Central Park
4.) Get a chocolate chip cookie from Levain’s Bakery in NYC
5.) Visit the Peanut Butter & Co. in NYC
6.) Take as many free workout classes outside as possible. I’ve already found yoga and belly dancing classes
7.) Visit the beach at least once a month
8.) Do a DIY project for our bedroom – ex: make a headboard
9.) Take a cooking class
10.) Read a book from start to finish. I have major ADD and usually get halfway through and start another.
I still have things to cross off my to do list but there is not a cloud in the sky and from the looks of yesterdays picture of myself i DESPERATELY need a tan. To lay out or run errands? That is the question.
