We spent the first hour of our day doing dishes and laundry and picking up around the apartment.
After snacking on a quesadilla (Colby jack string cheese warmed on a whole wheat quesadilla), Ryan and I headed to the gym for a fast and sweaty workout.
I did a random cardio hodgepodge that included:
Once Ryan and I were done at the gym, we headed home and leashed up Sadie for a 2.5 mile walk.
Sometimes I get the feeling that Sadie doesn’t particularly enjoy lots of loving cuddles on our walks…
I mean that face doesn’t exactly say “I love you, Mom! More cuddles, please!” 😉
Ryan and I couldn’t stop laughing when we saw her stressed out bug-eyed face in that picture.
In the words of Chandler Bing, she’s a hoot!
Once our walk was over, we ran a couple of errands and Ryan got a haircut. By the time we got back home it was after 11 a.m. and I was more than hungry!
I wanted a F-A-S-T breakfast and thought a cold, creamy smoothie sounded perfect.
I busted out the blender and got to work.
I made a pomegranate smoothie by combining the following:
- 1 c. POM Wonderful pomegranate cranberry juice
- 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
- 1 HUGE frozen banana
- 1/2 c. cottage cheese
The result was a thick, creamy smoothie with a little bit of tang from the pomegranate juice. It was tasty!
I served it in an adorable wine glass that I received from blog reader Alyssa who noticed that I am a huge lover of Etsy, an online marketplace where artists can sell handmade goods.
Alyssa has a super-crafty shop of her own through Etsy and sells hand painted wine glasses that she creates herself.
How cute is this Wine-O glass?
It’s definitely meant for a true wine-o, because it is huge!
It held my entire smoothie without a problem.
Plus, the glass matched my smoothie, and you guys know how much I love matchy matchy things. 😉
I gotta get runnin’ because I have a mani/pedi appointment today and then Ryan’s mom and her boyfriend are heading over to hang out for the rest of the day.
See ya in a bit!
