What to have for lunch?
Nothing really sounded great, but nothing sounded bad either. I started by slicing up an apple and eating it as I gazed back into the fridge.
I think that the sweetness of the fresh apple made me want more fruity sweetness, so I decided to bust out the blender and make a smoothie using the following:
- 1 1/4 cup milk
- 3/4 cup cottage cheese
- 1 1/2 frozen bananas
- 1/2 cup frozen strawberries
- 1 large handful fresh spinach
- 1 large spoonful dark chocolate cocoa powder
I ended up adding the cocoa powder at the very end when I decided I was more in the mood for a chocolate smoothie than a strawberry banana smoothie.
Adding the cocoa powder turned my very-green smoothie into a sludge smoothie!
Looks like poo stew, no?
You don’t have to say it. I know I have a gift for describing my meals in a way that makes you immediately want to try them.
Despite its horrid appearance, the smoothie did a great job of filling me up and tasting great on the way down.
I followed up my smoothie with a hot mug of tea because the cold smoothie left me shakin’ in my boots!
New Circuit Workouts Page
I took some time this morning to put together a new page on the blog filled with some of my all-time favorite circuit workouts.
I know what a pain it is to try to search for workouts on this blog using only the search bar because I often do it myself, so I figured having a go-to page where a bunch of the workouts may always be found would be a good idea! I’m also working on a Treadmill Workouts page, so that should be up soon.
Below is a quick glimpse at the new Circuit Workouts page, but you may find the page in its entirety residing below the “Work It Out” tab of this blog under “Circuit Workouts.”
I hope it makes finding past workouts a bit easier for ya!
