I had to make a quick run out to the store earlier today, and as I was walking through the door, I realized that the air temperature in my garage wasn’t feeling all that different from the air temperature in my house.
I’m pretty sure that the Code-ster was not too happy with me.
It was just downright soupy, so I had no choice but to cave and actually turn the AC on (we’ve been turning it on and off during the day/night).I mean, how could I turn down this face?
You guys already know that I’m sort of a stickler for using the AC and I have no other reason except for the fact that I just don’t want to pay for it. But I suppose when my weather man tells me that the air temp currently feels like 101 degrees, I’d be an idiot for not using it. Right?
Well, it’s still hot…lunch is still cold.
But AMAZINGLY delicious.
I picked up a huge container of blueberries at Sam’s Club today and couldn’t wait to get back home to incorporate them into a nice, cold smoothie.
For today’s Blueberry-Banana Smoothie, I used:
- 1 frozen, sliced banana
- 3/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 1 cup fresh blueberries
- 1 scoop vanilla Sun Warrior protein powder*
- ~1/4 cup oats
- pinch xanthan gum
*I ordered my Sun Warrior through iHerb.com and I love, love, LOVE it. Remember, you can still get $5.00 off your first order with my exclusive coupon code: SAZ564.
This had to be the best smoothie I’ve had since this one, and it actually has me pretty full right now so I’m going to hold off on eating my planned Cashew Cookie Larabar until I feel some tummy grumbles.
Now, let’s talk astrology!
Healthy Fitness Horoscopes
I recently came across this article from SparkPeople about how your astrological sign can effect the types of workouts that may fit your personality best. Typically, I’m not really into the whole “What’s your sign?” thing, but this particular article really seemed to spark my interest (<—pun intended).
I was especially intrigued when I read my Fitness Horoscope (Holla!! to any of my fellow Aquarians out there!):
“If you are an Aquarius, you thrive in social settings. Being alone stifles your creativity and brings you down, so take advantage of your friendly nature and join a fitness class. In your mind, the more the merrier! You have a very open mind when it comes to new ideas. This means you’re often the first one in your circle of friends to try a new fitness activity. You adopt the latest trends and equipment into your program, even when others are reluctant to change. You have a strong social conscience, so why not combine your fitness goals with charity work? Sign up for a 5K or 10K run for charity, or swing a hammer to build a home for a less fortunate family. You can get fit and feel good at the same time.”
Fitness classes? Check!
Run a 10K? Check!
Maybe this whole horoscope thing is actually onto something??
Questions for the Afternoon:
- What’s your sign? (you had to see that one coming)
- Do you believe in/follow horoscopes and/or astrological signs?
- Does your sign match what the article says?
