It’s Friday – wheeeeeeeee! I, for one, could not be any happier at this point. I feel like I’ve been on the go for the past month, so I am excited to take it eeeeeasy this weekend! Our original plans were to paint the exterior of our house, but those plans have been shelved due to the high heat and humidity – the paint would never dry!
So, last night Ben and I did make it to the ice cream shop – well it was a custard shop – Culvers! I got a one-scoop sundae with butterfinger and chocolate chip cookie dough. Hey – 80/20 people. I didn’t bring my camera with me and I obviously couldn’t wait until we got home to dive in! It was soooo creamy and silky and sweet!! I love custard!! Do you prefer custard, ice cream or fro yo? I prefer all of them! 🙂
This morning I woke up with a craving. Actually, I’ve had this craving for about a week – so today it actually turned into a need. A need for a Green Monster! It’s really crazy how addicting these babies are!!!
In my SWEET Iowa glass, I had:
- 1/2 bag baby spinach
- 1 frozen banana
- 1/3 cup oats
- 1 cup milk
- handful ice
- drizzle of Barney Butter
I added the Barney Butter because I wanted some fat in this glass (and BB is amazing!). I find that the combo of protein, carbs & fat in one meal, really holds me over. If I’m missing one of those elements – I tend to get hungrier, faster. Not cool.
Mmmmm – this mixture actually let me fill up my Iowa glass twice! Isn’t that an awesome glass, btw? My friends gave a set of them to me at one of my bridal showers 🙂
The Barney Butter addition was soooo perfect! You could use peanut butter too!
Weekend Challenge: If you’ve never tried a Green Monster, make one this weekend and let me know on Monday what you thought! It’ll be a fun weekend project – get your family/friends involved too!
For lunch today I packed a mixed green & vegetable salad, topped with roma tomatoes, feta cheese and the leftover artichoke salsa!!
This salsa is so tangy and savory – I just love it! It’d probably taste really good mixed with some angel hair pasta, too.
I’ve also got an extremely juicy peach to look forward to!
Well I’ve got another doc appt today – the Eye Doctor! I literally can’t see my hand straight in front of my face without glasses or contacts 😦 Do you all wear either?
Oh, AND, I’m taking it to the workplace gym during lunch to knock out my three miles scheduled for today. Ben and I have plans to meet some friends after work, so I’m fitting in that run when I can!!
Happy Friday everyone – have a wonderful day!! Oh – and this is the last morning to enter up to 3 times to win 1 of 6 prize packages in the Real Simple + PURE Bar Giveaway!!
If you have plans that interfere with your workout schedule, do you skip your workout, or find a way to squeak it in, no matter what?
I go both ways. Sometimes if it’s just too crazy, I’ll skip the workout. This week in particular though, I’m trying to stick to my schedule since the previous two weeks were kind of up and down for me on the work-out front!
