The best way to wake up on a Friday..

Clumsy me... Don't even act surprised.. I was going to happen sooner or later.. It works.. sort of. I can text not talk? weird.. I had to cover it with scotch tape because shards of glass kept getting in my thumb.. fabulous.. 
Okay that's not really the best way to start a Friday.. I woke up bright and early this morning, okay that's a lie to.. it wasn't bright but I was ready to workout! 
I had a great workout this morning at GPP doing this workout 
followed by a 3 mile run and it was off to work I go! ( I work in a Pediatric dental office on Fridays)

Chocolate spinach shake-- Love them right now. Chocolate > Vanilla/fruity.

1 1/2 C. almond milk
5-7 cubes of ice (depending how thick you like it.)
1 scoop of chocolate elite whey by dymatize
1 tbs unsweetened cocoa
pinch of xanthan gum 
handful of spinach

For lunch I went with a classic salad.

3/4 C. Green beans
Handful Spinach
1/2 red pepper
1/2 sweet potato
purple onion
4 oz Grilled chicken 
Balsamic Vinaigrette 

Favorite Thing Friday

Freshly cut lawn!!!
There is something about the smell of grass that I love. Gap used to have a lotion called "grass".. (seriously, it was secretly my favorite..) weird I know. I love it because its a summer thing.. 

 Babies are napping and I'm supposed to be packing to go and I'm blogging..  priorities people. 
Have a safe and happy looooong weekend!

WE are OFF!!


Q. Any fun and exciting plans?!!


  1. oh no! I do stuff like that all the time...the smoothie sounds delicious! Although I am a vanilla >chocolate kind of girl ;). Have a great weekend! Mine includes lots of family & friend time

  2. I've been making the same protein shakes as you, but also add a tbs of powdered pb. amazzinnnggg...and it also kills my sweet tooth!
