Happy Friday everyone! My Friday was rather laid back, but that is totally fine with me! I am going to miss relaxing everyday when school starts on Monday… back to reality.
This morning I was in a smoothie mood, so I made myself a chocolate oatmeal protein smoothie. The smoothie consisted of: oatmeal, greek yogurt, ground flax seed, chocolate vitamix, and milk. I really wanted to add some frozen bananas to it… but we were still out of bananas. Regardless, the smoothie still tasted great!
On our way to drop off my sister, we (my mom, sister, and I) stopped at Starbuck’s drive through. My mom and I ordered the protein bistro box and my sister got some kind of sandwich.
And of course we just had to order green tea lattes! Just in case you were all dying to know (probably not) I like to have my green tea lattes with: no syrup (Starbucks puts syrup in almost everything), non-fat milk (I always say skim and then they always correct me…), and light ice. Most of the time they understand what I am saying… but sometimes they (the newbies) are confused. What can I say? I love making complicated orders (haha that just reminded me of Bon Qui Qui )
After dropping Ash off, we headed over to our local Vitamin Shoppe. I have been wanting to buy whey protein powder for a very long time now. Last night I attempted to buy it at the mall but the shop’s doors were locked. I mean come on! There was still 1 more minute left before the store was supposed to close. Ok so maybe I should have gone earlier… Anyway, I finally had a chance to buy whey protein powder
I was stuck between two different brands, so I bought one and my mom bought the other.
It was already getting dark outside (thank you winter!) so I decided upon a quick run. I laced up my running shoes and headed out with Kaylie. I ended up running 3.4 miles which is more than I originally planned on running. I also remembered to wear a hat this time!
I also happened to use an app on my phone called Charity Miles. Charity Miles is an app that measures the distance of your run (it also tracks your walks and biking) and then donates money to a charity of your choice based on the distance completed. Neat, right? So after my run, I had the satisfaction of improving my health and helping wounded veterans!
After my run, I was excited to try one of my new protein powders… so I did I made a smoothie with: whey protein powder (vanilla bean), bananas, blueberries, skim milk, and ice. I made a little too much, so I shared with my mom.
So far, I am liking this protein powder! I will be doing a review on the two powders tomorrow
And now for the fun stuff!
Friday Faves: Blog Edition!
I have thought about writing a Friday Faves post for a while now. One of my favorite blogs, Change of Pace, wrote her Friday Favorites on blogs. After reading her post, which I absolutely loved, I decided to begin writing Friday Faves. I decided to separate my favorite blogs into separate categories. So here we go!
Prettiest Blogs (photographs and layout):
- The Undressed Skeleton- I love how colorful her website is! I also love seeing pictures of her dog-Mr. Grumples.
- Peanut Butter Fingers- I love her workouts and recipes. Her blog is also very fun to read! And like Taralynn (Undressed Skeleton), she has a cute dog named Sadie. Can you tell that I love dogs?
- The Skinny Confidential- One of the things that I love about this blog is the pretty pictures on it! All of her pictures are very colorful and fun. I also like her blogging voice. She is always so fun and carefree!
- Sweet Tooth Sweet Life- I enjoy reading her recipes and looking at all of her food pictures. She also posts good workouts on her blog.
Do you have any complicated orders?
What are some of your favorite blogs?
Happy Friday everyone!
