The Return of the Green Monster
Once again, thanks for all of your support on yesterday’s post. I haven’t felt tired this morning, and mom and I talked about possible reasons last night. We’re thinking that it could be emotional stress from the effort that went into gaining weight last week, and when I didn’t gain any, I just “shut off”. Anyway, I’m (hopefully) back on track and woke up feelin’ great this morning!
I actually had a super yummy breakfast, it was so awesome that my sister wanted some, too! =D I made some corn grits, but instead of stirring in plain milk, I used our Aerolatte to whip the milk into a nice creamy, frothy cup of goodness and then stirred it into our grits. Then I microwaved each bowl for a little while so that the grits and the frothy milk would combine, put some butter in each bowl and voila! a simple, but fun brekkie! =P
I also tried a new cardio workout today. Its bootcamp-style which I love, and only 30 minutes. Its not super hard, so its great if you’re not used to the bootcamp style of workout. Anyway I enjoyed it, so here’s the link:
Post workout, I was feeling sweaty and thought that a smoothie sounded absolutely wonderful. Aaand we happened to have some fresh kale in our fridge, so I whipped up my favorite banana/coffee green monster. Here’s a pic of it in all its ugly glory:
Definitely not the most picturesque of smoothies, but probably one of my all-time favs! I’ve been drinking a lot of smoothies recently (like the one I posted about yesterday) because its so stinkin’ hot here, but I’ve missed my green monsters!
Now, I have a couple of questions for ya’ll:
What’s your favorite warm-weather snack?
Smoothies or yogurt parfaits
Is there any topic that you would like me to post about on my blog?
I looved when Alex asked me why we’re in Brasil and I got to do a post about that. Soo I was wondering if anyone else out there had a specific post that they would like to see on here. =D
Got to go now….school is calling.
Hope you have a great day!
