This morning started out with a serious pain in my butt. Literally. While heading out to scrape the snow and ice off my car, my clumsy self got the best of me. Me + Ice = No Good Can Come of This!
I slipped on some ice and fell hard on my tush, along with a bang on my elbow and arm too. Not the best way to start a day, but I didn’t let it get me down. Once I got back up off the concrete of course. 😉
After regaining feeling in my arm, some breakfast, and renewed vigor, I headed off to the gym with Miss M. She played with her favorite helper while I did a quick light walk on the treadmill and hit up Group Power. This is the first time I have done the lifting class but I really liked it. It is perfect for my current situation and I was hurting in a good way in no time. 😀 I definitely plan on continuing with the class atmosphere for the time being.
After class, the hurting part of my day stopped and instead turned into some hankerings. My first one was an urge to down something post workout. Enter a green monster smoothie. I have only recently tried these and quite enjoy them. I’m behind the times I know…but I always wait to see if something really sounds appealing to me before jumping on the bandwagon. I gave in because who doesn’t want to get in more veggies?
Plus it is very delicious and energizing. And yes, I have given some to M and she has downed every sip right along with her momma. 😀 Yay for healthy eats!
At around 12 I got a call from a dear friend that I haven’t seen in awhile asking if I would like to meet up for lunch. Definitely! I have been missing this gal for awhile and you could say I was hankering to get out of the house and have some girl time. 🙂
I ordered a California Salad that had spinach, spring mix lettuce, oranges, strawberries, cranberries, pecans, blue cheese, and grilled chicken with balsamic. This salad is perfection and is my all time favorite. Coupled with girl talk = more perfection.
- What are your favorite salad additions?
- Have you tried a Green Monster? What are you favorite ways to mix one up? I used the basic banana, unsweetened vanilla almond milk, couple big handfuls of spinach, and about 1/4c greek yogurt to thicken it up.
- What’s your most embarrassing crash and burn moment? Today’s pales in comparison to some of my falls. I once tripped over a snag in the carpet in front of my class and faceplanted. Doing that in a room of almost 30 highschoolers is not the most gracious moment of my life, that’s for certain.
