Jamie quit her side job recently, which makes me happy, cause I get to have more post-work workouts with her!
Yesterday, I decided it was time for my first run since the Run for the Dream Half Marathon. When Jamie mentioned she was wanting a short, easy run day, too, I skipped out of the office and drove to her house.
I tagged along as a “guest” to her new gym. I was anxious to check out this newer gym in town, since my membership at the Y just ended. I need a new gym membership stat.
But… check out the bar on this treadmill.
So, here I am, partaking in a nice easy run on this tread with the eye-level bar of death, trying to check out my surroundings.
This was my view.
Scroll back and forth from picture to picture. Now you know why I almost had a seizure mid-run.
Mean treadmills. I prefer the ones with
the any view.
For obvious reasons, I think my new membership will be to this gym.
After our workout, I headed to Walmart to buy some Memorial Day party essentials. I was pretty attempted to snag this baby for only $300!
Who doesn’t want this baby in their backyard?
Dad Mr. Landlord? 😉
And let it be known that Mariah has it COMPLETELY right. A smoothie comes out best when you take care to add ingredients in the right order.
In this baby…
– sugar free chocolate syrup
– just enough skim milk to get things movin’
– chocolate protein powder
– frozen raspberries
– xanthan gum for thickness
– 1 handful spinach
– 8 ice cubes
– 1 packet Splenda
Add the frozen fruit, protein, chocolate, Splenda, and a pinch of the xanthan gum first, followed by spinach, then ice cubes. Pour in skim milk and blend until smooth. Then, another pinch of the xanthan gum and blend again.
Chocolate covered raspberries in smoothie form? Is anyone else craving a Rita’s gelati?
Have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend, ever’bady. We’ll be backyard partying to celebrate!
