I am embarrassingly excited about my new bowl.
I’m excited because it’s see-through. And because it’s new.
Hello, world, I am a food blogger.
In case you didn’t already figure it out (which would be a little worrisome), I had a SIAB this morning.
And it was awesome.
It was especially awesome because a) it was pretty much the only 100% healthy thing I’ve consumed all day and b) it was consumed after an amazing workout.
As predicted, my boot camp instructor totally called me out on missing Friday’s class (in a friendly and funny way, don’t worry)… but she knew I’d be back today and had planned, happily, for an incredibly butt-kicking workout this morning. And kick my butt, it did. We did three cycles of eight one-minute high-intensity exercises, with no rest time, followed by some ab work.
I’m getting tired just thinking about it again. And yet, I want more! I’m psyched for Friday.
I followed it with 35 minutes on the elliptical, per usual.
The smoothie afterward was so necessary.
Into the mix went:
- 3 ice cubes
- big handful fresh baby spinach
- 1/2 scoop vanilla whey protein powder
- 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 1 tbs nonfat plain greek yogurt
- 1/3 frozen banana
- ~2/3 cup frozen berries (cherries, blackberries, & raspberries)
- ~3/4 tbs warmed & drizzled coconut butter
- handful Go Lean Crunch! Honey Almond Flax
Also, doesn’t the new bowl photograph nicely?
I certainly think so! There’s more where that came from, too. I may or may not have also picked up a few other items. 🙂
Lunch was less healthy, but oh-so-delicious.
Despite my lackluster experience with the truck last time, I decided to give it another shot since everyone else in the office seems to love it so much.
I’m glad I did.
I got the maple-braised pork crepe, which is totally not something I would normally order, but sounded great and had gotten rave reviews.
It was a good move. I am not sorry.
Not one bit.
Thank you to Hanna, who was not only my hand model but is also the birthday girl!
Happy birthday to Hanna!
