It’s going to be a hot one today. We’re talking 97 degrees which rarely happens here. There’s even an extreme weather advisory. Yikes. Hope I don’t melt :) And I can already tell I’m going to need some serious sunscreen because by 7:30 we had our living room fan turned on (PS we have no AC…tonight’s gonna be fun). Chris was way better than me and got up and went for a run while I opted for some leisurely breakfast eating while listening/watching Great American’s Country. Ahhhhh Saturday’s.
And I know right now you’re just dying to know what I had for breakfast so I won’t keep you in suspense any longer.
Black & Blue Protein Smoothie
- 1/2 cup frozen blueberries
- 1/2 cup frozen blackberries
- 1/4 cup protein plus peanut flour
- 1/2 scoop Designer Whey French Vanilla protein powder
- 1 cup (ish) spinach
- 1 teaspoon psyllilum husk powder (fiber)
- 1 teaspoon raw maca (energy/hormone balancing)
- 1.5 cups unsweetened vanilla almond milk
Next I was going to tell you about last night’s delicious stir-fry dinner but Chris got back and asked me if I wanted to go for a walk with he and Chance. How could I say no to that? :) And then after our 20 minute (already steamy walk) I was already in my running clothes so I decided to pop out an easy 2 miler on the treadmill. Done and done!
And now we’re off to float the river. Can’t wait to see what kind of craziness we see out there.
But before I leave you I need some help. Tomorrow I’m planning on spending some leisurely time reading a book in the shade except that I have no book :( I polished off Night Circus (so good!) during last night’s spin-bike cardio session. I’m looking for a good “beachy” type read. You know, a little summertime easy reading. Maybe with a love story thrown in?
Note – apparently this post didn’t post this morning. We’re now back from 7 hours on the river in 100 degree weather and I did not get burned anywhere! That makes me really happy because I always seem to miss spots with my sunscreen. Today I applied my SPF 30 about 30 times and while I was made fun of a few times I’m glad I did. Gotta protect your skin :)
