It is surprisingly easier for me to get up and go to the gym on rainy days then sunny ones. I think it has something to do with having to drive my car either way and the fact that it’s going to be dark all day. So I went straight to the gym after getting up this morning.
But first I satisfying a slightly grumbling stomach that was yelling for breakfast with a half banana + Nuttzo combo
At the gym I tackled the Stairmaster again – no flames this time – and finished up on the Squirrelliptical. Saving my muscle strength for Sculpt tomorrow!
Once home I decided 1) to have either yogurt or a smoothie and 2) that we had lots of things to use up in the fridge, including kale. Sometimes when I make food decisions I think about what I’m going to have later that day. I’m planning on taking yogurt to class, so for the sake of variety, I had the smoothie (also to use up the kale!)
I first blended a cup of milk, a small banana and a handful of ice. Then I added kale up to the top
I then had to add some frozen mango because the texture was awful. Actually, this whole smoothie was pretty bad. Not recommended! Do any of you guys have the perfect green monster recipe? (And without garlic or steaming – sorry Angela!) Just the right proportions of greens to banana to milk. Do you only use frozen bananas so you don’t use ice?
The GRANOLA, however, comes highly recommended!
Bob’s Red Mill hooked me up with some of their breakfasty items like granola, hot cereal and muesli. I had to open the Crunchy Coconut Granola immediately yesterday and it’s fantastic!!! SUPER crunchy and may be thick rolled oats? There are no clusters – just super crunchy oats. It’s the perfect sweetness too. And it’s actually pretty reasonably priced. Mmm!
I went back for a little more when I got halfway through the smoothie.
Might make a cup of coffee in a bit.
