You gotta get in on this!
A colleague of mine brought a box of bagels from Einstein Bros. Bagels to work this morning to raise money for her Relay for Life team. Put doughy bagels for a great cause in front of my face and I’ll glady fork over $10!
I snagged a freshly baked pretzel bagel and smeared it with honey almond cream cheese to help me power through a boatload of work today.
Our typical writing team includes four writers and with two out of the office (one sick, one on vacation) I was quite innundated with assignments. Gotta pick up the slack!
Though I thought the bagel would give me fuel, it unfortunately left me feeling sleepy. I figured a nutritious smoothie would serve as a great pick-me-up, so I headed home for lunch today to bust out my blender and spend some time with Sadie in our backyard in the warm sun.
I tried to make myself a vanilla-based smoothie, but after swiping a taste from the blender, I added a few scoops of cocoa powder because chocolate is just better than vanilla.
In my lunchtime smoothie:
- 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
- 1 1/4 c. almond milk
- 1 c. frozen strawberries
- 2 tbsp. cocoa powder
- 1 handful fresh spinach
- 2 pinches xanthan gum
I enjoyed my smoothie bowl while playing with this nut job.
She’s so joyful. I can’t help but smile around my lil’ pup!
Less than three hours of the work day remain! I am both excited and sad about my plans for the evening. I’m meeting up with some of my girlfriends tonight (yay!)… but we’re meeting up for a final goodbye dinner for our friend Merri who is moving to New York on Monday. Goodbyes are tough.
