Today I was feeling pretty good but around 11:00 I was feeling low. I think it is because my breakfast was weak and that will throw me off all day unfortunately. But there was all sorts of happenings going on around my street today. It was all blocked off for shooting. Which means I had to find a new place to park my car. Never fun. Anyways it was a pretty big set, they had about 4 whole city blocks marked off. I guess they were filming a new HBO series called "Girls."
But even before this all went down there was some kind of fight on the corner. As I left to go for my run this morning there was a group of hipsters just hanging out on the corner. Because it was still early I knew that they had yet to see their beds. Not an uncommon thing here in NYC since the bars stay open till 4 AM. Anyways sometimes you can just feel it when there is going to be trouble and I knew there would be. As I got back things still seemed low key and sure enough about 10 mins after I got inside I looked out the window and there were tons of cops. People getting arrested and some guy with his head bleeding. Pretty eventful for my Tuesday morning!!
Ok now back to me being low on energy... I desperately needed some healthy food groups and just was not feeling a salad today. So I did the next best thing. Spinach smoothie!
1/2 of greek yogurt
Tbs of Almond butter
Smidgen of Skim Milk (I am out of almond milk :( )
Blend and Voila!
A great way to get in your servings of fruits and veggies! (I know there is a lot of green going on in my kitchen, it is not by choice. This is a rental people:))
Because I didn't want to use all the yogurt in my smoothie I just poured the rest over my berries and stuck it in the fridge. It will make a great snack later.
So after I was so happy about getting my Coach's Oats (I have been eating them almost every morning, and I didn't today which is probably why I felt so crappy) I realized that I do not have a good microwave bowl. I don't use the microwave that much so I never really thought anything about it but now that I am back on, the bowl I was using was unacceptable. It was plastic and when you took it out it was always burning hot! Bad! So I stopped into my favorite kitchen store Fishs Eddy to get a new bowl!
This is my awesome new fish bowl!! Oh and I do have regular cereal bowls but my oatmeal always over flows so that is why I needed a bigger one.
Well I made it through the day without passing out, my husband Scott even came home early (to work even more, lame) so we ordered pizza from Forninos. It was delicious!
Tomorrow is laundry, work and PACKING!
I am not excited about the laundry part but it has to be done. Then the packing should be fairly simple because I can fit everything into my carry on. But I can't forget my Garmin Charger, Ipod shuffle, Gu's Shoes, Running gear etc!
Woohoo I can't wait!
Anyone else running a race this weekend?
What is your favorite thing in a smoothie?
I really wanted to put in Muscle Nog protein powder but we already ran out :(
