C’mon, April, lighten up!!
Yesterday was awesome. Today is raining and 30 degrees colder.
And I got drenched on my way back from the gym!!
It was a risk I took because I love biking so much and I’m still glad I went, especially since Body Pump was great today. I have a friend who is in all of my classes. I don’t know her name and have barely spoken to her, but we’re kind of mutual equals in the class because we lift similar weights. She’s got killer arms and I try to match her weight. Today she asked me: “Did you used to be a gymnast? Your upper body is so strong and broad.” Why thank you friend for making my day!
It’s not the first time I’ve gotten the question. Since I was in middle school people have asked me if I am/was a gymnast or swimmer. It’s pretty clear by now that I have that body type and it’s not changing! I think that’s pretty cool. I also apparently look like Clarissa Explains It All since I’ve gotten that comment since middle school as well 🙂
As I mentioned yesterday, I’m 5’2” high. There’s not a lot of room for my self to spread out! I am compact with thick muscles. I also have fair skin and green eyes. They’re not changing either (naturally, at least). The more I remind myself that the things that make me me never change, the happier I am with what I have.
Actually that’s not soup. It’s a green smoothie in a bowl topped with Danielle’s Taro + Coconut chips!!
The smoothie had 1 banana, 1 cup of milk, 1 tbsp chia seeds and 2 cups of spinach. It was delicious, and the crunchies were AMAZING on top!!
On the side: carrot + apple with pumpkin hummus!
I’ve gotten a head start on dinner – it’s roasting away!
