Green Monster Strikes Again

Good Morning!  I was up ‘n at em bright and early this morning to try to get my workout in early since my afternoon my include some visitors! :)  Boy, I’ll tell ya, I really have a love-hate relationship with early morning workouts.  For the first 15 minutes of getting up or attempting to get up, I hate them!  But then, once I’m up and moving, and especially once I’m finished, I feel like a million bucks!  And best of all, I’m DONE for the day and don’t have to worry about showering again, etc.  I can just come home from work and relax! :)  This morning’s workout consisted of a 3 mile interval run on the treadmill.  The legs were a little sluggish, but I kept truckin’ along! 😉

After being so WARM this morning after my sweaty workout, I knew I wanted something COLD for breakfast.  First thought – GREEN MONSTER! 😉

Today’s Green Monster was the same as the previous one I made, so if you want to check out the ingredients, check out this post!  I was feeling famished after the run and getting ready, so I also made myself half an Arnold sandwich thin with peanut butter & raisins.  The “monster” is doin’ it for me right now, so I think I’m going to bring it to work with me for a mid-morning snack.

Mmmmm, delicious!  I really wish I could get Jay to try this, because I truly do think he’d love it!  However, he is completely GROSSED OUT by the green color & idea of spinach in a smoothie.  Any suggestions on how to get him cave?? 😉

I snapped a couple photos of today’s lunch last night while I was making it (yes, I was on top of my game last night!)

Vanilla flavored Chobani (ahh, how I love my Chobani!  It’s been so long!) with fresh sliced strawberries and granola.  Also included is some carrot and celery sticks with hummus.  Not pictured, I also have so Kashi honey sesame crackers (BEST.CRACKERS.EVER) & an orange.

A stacked balancing act! 😉

Just a thought…What Would Be Your Dream Job, money aside?
