I Broke My Record

by Courtney on May 27, 2011

Wow. It is H-O-T-T HOT out there today!

weather

Let me assure you, I am not complaining in the least. I will take this weather over the crappy winter stuff any day. I’m just not used to it yet!

Apparently, either is Cody.

Poor guy. He’s barely been able to muster himself up to play any sort of fetch with me, let alone make his way out to the kitchen to eat his food. I don’t know…I wouldn’t want to be covered in all that fur when it’s warm like this either. Winking smile

********

Turns out, I think the surprisingly warm weather is actually having some sort of effect of my appetite today…I don’t have much of one.

This is weird. Very weird. And very annoying.

Around noon I knew I needed something, and the thought of a nice, cold smoothie sounded awesome.

Today’s smoothie consisted of:

  • 1 black cherry Chobani yogurt
  • 1/4-1/3 cup water
  • 1 banana, frozen
  • ~1/2 cup frozen mixed berries
  • 2 tsp chia seeds
  • 2 big handfuls spinach
  • 3 ice cubes

It was my first time trying the black cherry CHO in a smoothie, and let’s just say I’m definitely a fan.

Today I also think I broke my record for the longest procrastination of a run…8 hours.

Pretty good, right?

Hey, at least I got up and did it. Granted, I did keep it inside on the treadmill because, well, let’s face it; I was being lazy and didn’t want to sweat like a beast out in the heat.

I know, I know…

But still, I finished my scheduled 3 miles right around 26 minutes, then made a beeline straight for the shower. I knew I should have waited though…it was definitely one of those, “Wow, did I even shower because I swear I’m still sweating as much as I was before…?”

It was lovely.

Post plopping in front of the fan to try and “dry off,” I snacked on an apple with some of The Bee’s Knees peanut butter.

I seriously love this stuff.

Tonight, we have another softball game, which will hopefully be followed up with some tailgating. I love tailgating. That’s my favorite part of sports!

I’m sure many of you are ready for the nice holiday weekend like I am, so if you’re going to be out and about or traveling, I wish you safe travels and lots of fun!! Open-mouthed smile

Question for the Evening:

DO you have any plans for the holiday weekend?

I always lose my appetite when it’s really hot outside. It’s so annoying!

Ah I’m so glad I’m coming back to a North East that has warm temps :)

Hey, at least you ended up doing your run! Procrastination for me means pushing it to the next day…

And I totally agree with you, I hate showering right after a workout, since the heat from the shower always makes me sweat even more!

Thanks! Have an amazing weekend!

Hey Corey! Yep, I actually get them through iHerb, which you can see here: http://www.iherb.com/Bob-s-Red-Mill-Chia-Seeds-16-oz-453-g/29583?at=0
They’re awesome!

Don’t worry 8 hours of procrastination is better then it never happening at all :) I’ve had really horrible weather where I am (55F and rainy) so that heat actually sounds enjoyable to me.

Totally jealous of your warm temps. We had an outdoor picnic at work all afternoon and it was quite chilly. This holiday weekend, I’m headed out to the country for some fresh air and freedom from all things technology.

Great Vlog again, girl! I love your blog. I totally agree with you about using what works, not whats “in” or even that fancy. I’m a sucker for Cetaphil lotion and Clinique cleanser!

Whats Cody’s secret to such luscious fur? :-p

It’s just a normal weekend in Mumbai but fortunately it does still involve fun plans: girls night out last night which involved sushi, cinema tonite to see Hangover 2 and a one-day crepe making course on Sunday! Have a great weekend!

Eighty six degrees?! I am jealousssssss! Notsomuch here!!

I haven’t tried the bee’s knees yet, does it compare to white choco wonderful or dark chocolate dreams… or even cinn raisin swirl?? I guess those are the only three i have tried of pb and co and i liked ‘em all so I bet that one is comparable too! :D
