Smooth Sailin'

After getting my oil changed in my car (which is always such a joy – but hey, at least I got some reading done!) I headed to the gym for a kick-butt workout! (I decided to save my trip to the mall for another day.) I did 30 minutes interval running on the treadmill, mixing 2 mins @ 6.4mph and 2 mins @ 7.0-7.5mph, and covered just about 3.2 miles.  Then I hopped on the elliptical with my Shape magazine and did another 30 minutes of intervals, covering just under 3 miles.  I like to switch up my strides when I use the elliptical, going both forward and backward; I think it gives you a better workout and hits more of the muscle groups in your legs.

By the time I got home from the gym, I was still sweaty and STARVING.  Despite the yucky weather, I was now in the mood for something cool and fruity…

A Strawberry-Banana Smoothie!!

Today’s smoothie included:

-1 frozen ripe banana

-5 whole frozen strawberries

-1/2 cup Silk Pure Vanilla Almond Milk

-1 scoop Strawberry Whey protein powder

-splash of H20…and then another ice cube since the water thinned it out too much!)

I seriously LOVE these things…I think I could drink them everyday if I didn’t have to clean my blender every time! 😉

On the side, I also had 2 carrots & some grape tomatoes with roasted red pepper hummus.

My “smoothie” goes right along with the “smooth sailin'” I’ve been feelin’ today!  I just finished working on a photo book from our Wedding for my parents through Shutterfly.  This site is super-awesome, and takes care of a lot of the tough decision-making stuff (right up MY alley!).  I’m not completely done, since I still have to wait for some final approvals from Mom, but so far it’s coming out really well!  Plus, right now they’re having a promotion with free shipping on orders over $30.00.  Just enter “SHIP30” at checkout!

Tonight, I’m headed to my friend Kate’s bachelorette party!!  Jay will be out at her fiance, Joe’s, bachelor party, so it should be a fun night for all!  Time to go get ready and figure out what to wear! 😀
