Today I was lucky enough to have the day off from work and it was glorious! I started the day off by getting up early and heading to the gym. I wanted to be productive today and I knew the best way to do that was to start it off with a work out. So I went to a Core Strengthening class that definitely got my abs hurting! Then somehow the instructor convinced me to come to his spinning class after, so I spent another 45 minutes sweating it out on the bike. This was my first time Spinning and I really enjoyed it! I will definitely be added spinning to part of my cross training routine.
After the gym I treated myself to Panera with a gift card I had, Chi Latte and Mediterranean Egg White Breakfast sandwich did not disappoint.
I also was able to re-create one of my favorite smoothie recipes, which I am going to share with you all today, The Might Good Green Smoothie!
1 Banana (preferably frozen, it adds creaminess to the smoothie)
1/2 to 1 cup Baby Spinach (I promise you don’t even taste it and it adds those awesome nutrients and gives you a vegetable serving for the day)
1 scoop (~2 tablespoons) Chocolate Whey Protein Powder (Or protein powder of your choice)
~1 cup Milk (amount varies depending how thick you like your smoothies, and again can use any kind of milk, soy, almond, skim, etc)
5 ice cubes
-Add ingredients to blender (I recommend adding the spinach first)
– Blend to your desired consistency and everything appears to have transformed into a delicious green drink!
-Enjoy! (It tastes even better if you drink it with a straw)
Overall I would have to say today was a pretty gosh darn good day. Let’s hope the rest of the week follows suite!
