I woke up this morning with very little motivation to get up & workout. I was just about to hit snooze on my alarm when I remembered that I published this. I think publishing my workouts for the week on my blog is probably the best thing I could have done. It definitely holds me accountable & keeps me motivated because, unless I injure myself again, there really is no good excuse.
After my workout, I made this delightful green monster of a smoothie. I had some produce in my refrigerator that was about to go bad, so I threw them in the blender and hoped for the best. It turned out pretty good!
Green Monster Smoothie
1 C of O.J.
1 small cucumber
1 small gala apple
2 C of spinach leaves
1 scoop of vanilla whey protein
1 T of flaxseed
A handful of ice cubes
*Blend & enjoy!
Today I'd also like to wish my little sister, running buddy, MOH, & BFF a very happy birthday! She turns 24 today. Unfortunately, I can't make it up to Milwaukee tonight to celebrate with her, but she's coming to Chicago tomorrow and staying for most of the weekend. Our weekend consists, of a sushi date, Bar Method madness, & shopping for a dress for my shower.
This is us before we ran our first 1/2 marathon in August 2010. Little did we know what we were about to get ourselves into!
